Midtown house is a spacious cottage is in the rural village of Hayton. This quaint village has a wide green, small shop and village church. It benefits from being located 5 miles from the beach at Allonby on the beautiful Solway coast with views across to Scotland.

It is also within easy travelling distance to the northern edge of the Lake District National Park. The Accommodation is comfortably appointed throughout and provides a relaxing atmosphere perfect for large families and friends looking to enjoy time together in one of the most beautiful parts of the country. There is a large lounge with dining area and log burning stove.

Exposed beams were originally part of the old 'Gincase' (a millstone would have been pulled round by a donkey to crush barley). The well appointed fitted kitchen leads to a sun room which provides the perfect place to relax, read a book and plan your next day's activities. This sunroom has doors which lead out onto the large patio and BBQ area.

The seating area is surrounded by raised flower beds with a view across the village green. This rural location is perfect for dog walking and the coast to coast cycle track runs through the coastal village of Allonby which is just 4 miles away.
