“- Highly recommend, very good value for money - The stay was lovely. - Easy to find the house and not too far from Whitehaven just a hill to climb for 30 minutes - Helen is a very nice host, easy to speak with, and if you don't know where to go she knows lots of locations - Due to getting trains she offered lifts to beautiful areas we couldn't have got to - The room was comfortable, warm and spacious. - The kitchen is a good place to cook - We enjoyed doggy company ”
This house was built for a local iron ore mine in the 1890s. It looks out towards Ennerdale valley, in the Lake District Park, and a short path to the C2C cycleway. The location is quiet, with passing traffic for the farm only. Two double rooms, one with twin beds, are available, with a separate sitting room, with TV, for guests. It is a 10 minute walk to the centre of the village and frequent buses to Whitehaven, on the coast. Well situated for walking, cycling or business in West Cumbria.
“Diana is an excellent host. Everything spotlessly clean and communication was excellent. The house is in a great location for access to the western lakes. The coast coast cycle path goes right past. Would highly recommend a stay here.”
My place, built in 1830, can be seen on the left of the main picture. It is close to Wainwrights Coast to Coast Walk, the sea, public transport, a brilliant fish & chip shop and a local store. You’ll love my place because you're close to coastal walks and sites of historical interest such as the industrial heritage sites of Whitehaven. The lake District National Park is within a few miles and the sunsets from my house are stunning..
“Janet's place is located in a great location, in whitehaven. Stunning views over the sea and despite the bad weather we took our dog Coco for a lovely walk to Haig Mine and down to Whitehaven... just a 15 to 20 minute walk along the coast from Janet's cottage. The place itself was spotlessly clean, and very cosy... Janet even provided milk, tea, hot chocolate and coffee for our arrival. The chip shop around the corner was also a bonus! Janet's place was very special place, and great value!! We will definately be going back we felt very relaxed and at home here.
