“Cosy, peaceful retreat.”
Reviewed 26 September 2015 for a stay in August 2015

My friend and I came to stay for 3 nights during the summer holidays. We enjoyed the peace and quiet of the beautiful area, making the most of the nearby beach and stunning views. We were treated to a stunning sunset and lots of wildlife on our doorstep.
The cottage has everything you could need from a washing machine to an oven, to lots of crockery and comfortable beds.
We were made to feel completely at home :-)

“EXCELLENT, the best holiday cottage for many years.”
Reviewed 20 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Cottage was excellent, clean and tidy, comfortable beds, sofa lovely to sit on after a day
out. T.V had a very large screen, not the small ones you normally get in rented places.
Countryside very beautiful and not to far from the lakes. The sunsets over the Solway Firth
looking towards Scotland are a sight to see as are the stars at night.
Brenda, the owner, cannot be more helpful and I would recommend this to anyone who is looking for a quite place to stay.

“Cosy cottage in a beautiful location”
Reviewed 25 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Maid's Cottage was the first holiday I've booked with a friend, and we were not disappointed. The cottage was lovely and cosy, perfect for evenings in by the fire. It was well-equipped, although the oven was a bit of an enigma at first (aren't they all!)
Allonby was only a short walk away and we enjoyed pottering along the beach (in both sunshine and rain!) There was a spectacular sunset on our second night, which was framed beautifully by the Cumbrian and Scottish hills. Brenda was very welcoming, and we assured her we would pass our recommendations on to our friends!

“Perfect retreat”
Reviewed 4 January 2015 for a stay in December 2014

Me and my husband stayed in maids cottage from 31st dec to 4th jan 2015 for a new year break. Lovely little cottage very clean, warm and cosy. Brenda is very friendly and made us very welcome when we collected the keys. The cottage had everything we needed, couldn't have wished for better, like home from home. We had a meal at the local pub, Ship in Allonby. Food was great and very tasty and portions were extremely generous. All in all we have had a great time and will most certainly be making another visit.

Me and my wife stayed here for our first wedding anniversary and it was perfect. Just what we needed with having five kids a time home. Quiet,peaceful and relaxing. Will definitely be back without a shadow of a doubt. If you want a nice quiet weekend stay here, you won't regret it.

“A fantastic place”

My husband and I stayed at Maid's cottage for 6 nights Brenda {the owner} was lovely and welcoming. The cottage is charming like stepping back in time yet has all the mod cons and everything you need. The views are lovely, fields, trees and cows. The location is very peaceful, no noise from traffic in fact the only noise we heard was the trees blowing in the wind.
The village of Allonby is quaint with a couple of pubs, shop and fish and chip shop and right on the coast. A lovely place will definitely return.
