This wonderful, detached cottage located in Cumbria close to Scotland's borders can sleep four people in two bedrooms.

Solway Cottage is a marvellous, detached cottage in Bowness-on-Solway overlooking the Solway Firth, close to the Scottish Borders. Set solely over the ground floor, the cottage can sleep four people in a king-size double bedroom, and a family room with a 4’ double and a single bed, both with TVs with Freeview. There is also a family bathroom and a shower room, and an open plan living area with a kitchen, a breakfast bar and a sitting area. Feature French windows showcase the beautiful scenery and lead out on a decked patio with furniture. Steps lead directly down to the shore and there is off road parking for two cars. Solway Cottage is a delightful base for friends, families, and couples exploring Cumbria and the Scotland’s borders, all year round.


The best thing about this property and the thing that attracted us to book is the view over the Solway Firth. The cottage itself has everything you could need and is comfortable and inviting as well as modern. All in all we had a perfect holiday.

What a fantastic cottage! Direct access to the empty beach! Loved it! The cottage was clean, modern and very well equipped. The weather was fantastic and the outside decking area was an ideal place to sit and admire the view, have drinks or a barbecue. I spent a lot of time on the patio reading, listening to music and watching my husband jogging on the beach!! Went for a Sunday session at the local (2 minutes walk) and found the staff very welcoming indeed! Lots of wild life and the local pheasant kept us amused on the lawn! Bill and Patsy were great hosts and such a lovely couple. We stay in cottages often and this is one of the best we have stayed in! Loved it and didn't want to leave. Thank you Bill and Patsy!

Loved the property! The owners were excellent hosts and such a lovely couple. Solway Cottage was clean, modern and well equipped. Sitting on the the patio with the stunning view, drinking wine accompanied by great weather was like being abroad! Stunning! Will definitely recommend to friends!

Fabulous position, quiet location and immaculately clean property.

The aspect of the cottage & both of us being lovers of wildlife, we were very pleased with the number of nature reserves and Mosses within easy reach of the superb Solway Cottage.
