The Old Coachmans is a perfect seaside holiday cottage; situated 20 yards from the beach, in the centre of Allonby, with a children’s play area opposite. The kids are going to love it here, but so will the adults, with views across the sea to the scottish hills, magnificent sunsets and miles of walks along the beach. Allonby is a convenient base for day trips to the Borders, Southern Scotland and The Lake District National Park. You could be in bustling Keswick in half an hour or the more peaceful, remote and unspoilt Western Lakes in about 45 minutes. Visit historic Carlisle (30 minutes) with its medieval castle, Norman Cathedral and museum or have a day out at the Roman fort and museum at Housesteads and walk along Hadrian’s Wall (about 1 hour’s drive)
Allonby is also superbly situated for birdwatching along the Solway Estuary or at the RSPB sites at St Bees, and for golf - there is a superb golf links approximately seven miles away at Silloth, a qualifying venue for the Open Championships.
Local amenities include a post office and two shops, one just 20 yards from the cottage, two pubs offering meals and two cafe/snack bars. There is a small indoor swimming pool in the leisure centre within a caravan site.
