Customer Comments

Selected comment(s) from customers who have enjoyed staying at this property:
  1. The bungalow was in superb decorative order, very clean, and the kitchen was equipped to a high standard. It was a warm and cosy property, with wonderful views over the Duddon Estuary, and easy access to the sea. We couldn’t fault it, and very much look forward to staying there again. We highly recommend this property. Oct 2012.
  2. This property was met all our needs just a bit of a drive to the lakes Cartmel and Grange on the sands worth a visit as was Ulverston. June 2012.
  3. The best location of any cottage we have stayed in. The views take your breath away and, despite our efforts, defy all attempts to be adequately photographed. We intend to return to see the real thing as soon as we can! Aug 2011.
  4. The Furness Peninsula offers far more than meets the eye and this holiday house provides excellent base. The view IS stunning, and even if the weather blows that occasional gale, you can sit and watch the estuary from behind the big patio windows (house was toasty warm when required)! Walks in either direction take you to even more views, or (south) to a nature reserve with sand dunes. The train can take you to two brew pubs (one in Foxfield, which opens for lunch and and again at 5 pm and one in the The Green - opens at 6 pm), or to Millom which has a lovely sandy beach at Haverigg (Harbour Hotel pub has food until 2pm), a walk up Black Combe or a visit to the local museum. Re property: The picture of the lounge does not give the whole story - 2 comfy sofas (2-seater, and 3-seater), large arm chair and a hassock made it possible for the entire party to sit comfortably and enjoy the fire (not a real log-fire, but it can be a relief at times not to have to light a real fire) and TV/DVD player and sea views. Many places don’t have enough seating in the lounge area and this one came up trumps in this department. No pub food in Askham, but a fantastic Chinese take away and a new Italian restaurant and wine bar La Bella (opened mid Aug 2011, not sure how it will fare). The Co-op grocery and Mabel’s bakery provided local shopping. Aug 2011.
  5. Back garden with access to beach walks. Views picturesque and ever-changing. Plenty to do within easy distance. August 2011.
  6. Nice location, walks along the estuary. Wild Animal Park in Dalton very good. Sunsets nice. Chinese Takeaway excellent. July 2011.
  7. Wonderful holiday for family with children, lovely location in easy walking distance of railway station. No restaurent/pub food in village but are some good places to eat within easy reach with a car. June 2011.
  8. Sunset view is a very apt name for this comfortable and spacious home from home. It was an excellent base to explore the South Lakes area. The house was very well equipped, clean and comfortable. We would definitely consider booking Sunset View again for a future visit to the Lake District. April 2011.
