Situated between Sandside and Arnside beautiful cottage with great breakfast and fantastic hosts we were well looked after and thing was to much trouble. We would definitely stay again if visiting the area. Room was clean and in keeping with the rest of the property really enjoyed a soak in the corner bath after spending the day cycling

We rented both of the two very pleasant rooms but sadly it was only for a one night stay. We would have loved to have stayed longer. Both of the rooms are very comfortable and amply spacious. The house is full of charm and everything is immaculately well presented. Victor and Maxine are perfect hosts and we are particularly impressed... More

A one night stay in Plantation Cottage was lovely. Built in the 1600's, the owners have clearly made this delightful house a labour of love, retaining the original character, whilst modernising bathrooms etc. The table laid for breakfast was stunning in a lovely old dining room & furniture to match. Linen serviettes demonstrated the care taken over detail. Simply outstanding,... More

This lovely old house has the ideal mixture of period features and furnishings and sparklingly clean bathroom and linens. The owners are very friendly and helpful and make a great cooked breakfast. Generally I'm quite shy about sharing a breakfast table, but as we took the only two bedrooms, we had the cosy dining room to ourselves anyway. Do take... More

We have stayed here twice in both rooms that the owners let out. Both are full of charm and the hosts make you very welcome. Amazing value for money. We enjoyed our stay and exploring a part of the world we knew little about. Thanks to Victor and Maxine for making us most welcome. Highly recommend the accommodation.

My husband and I stayed here for an overnight stop. We were made very welcome and enjoyed a cuppa outside as it was a lovely evening. We were able to walk along the sandy estuary to Arnside and back. The breakfast was delicious. Our bedroom was small but it was priced accordingly and was ideal for an overnight stop.

We stayed here and had a fantastic time. The area and cottage is beautiful. Owners were great at making us feel welcome and suggested places to visit. I'd highly recommend staying here.

I spent three nights here whilst working at the nearby Westmorland Showground.The accommodation is extremely comfortable, the house is beautiful, the location peaceful and the welcome very warm. Victor and Maxine are ideal hosts and have the whole business down to a fine art. I was not surpised to learn that they have many repeat bookings - deservedly so.
