Beautiful Weekend
Myself and some friends and family stayed here for my 40th. It was a stunning location with amazing views. The cottage was a huge hit with the games room and hot tub! We all loved our stay and wished it had been longer. We will be back. 5*

We didn't want to leave! Had a fabulous long weekend with all the family in the most well-equipped place we've ever stayed, the bedroons were spacious and comfortable, the games room was occupied by us for most of the time, we were fortunate to have sunny weather so also took advantage of the many outdoor seating areas looking out over the Irish sea, towels were provided for the hot tub, colour coded to whichever bedroom you were staying in, we will definitely be back

Poor customer service
**PLEASE READ THIS REVIEW BEFORE YOU CONSIDER BOOKING NEAR BANK COTTAGE ** Myself and a group of friends booked to stay here in early January 2020 for a friends birthday weekend. Throughout the duration of our stay our room was infested with flies. We had to use fly spray we found in the property to kill all the flies. Proving that there clearly is an issue with insects in this property. Our bedroom door and window were closed the whole duration of our stay at near bank cottage as the weather was cold, so there was no way in which the flies entered through the window or any other opening. At no point were we informed of the risk of flies by the landlord although there clearly is a massive insect issue at this property. Furthermore, upon speaking to the owners of the property via the agency we used to book this property we were told that the owners would NOT reimburse the deposit paid or even just a portion of it. The mere fact that the owners of the property felt that it was ok for guests to have to endure such treatment is poor customer service. We didn't even get an apology - proving the above point even more. We would not stay here again and neither would we recommend or advice that anyone else should. Good customer service goes a long way - unfortunately the owners don't understand or appreciate this.

Amazing place to bring in the New Year.
There was a group of 10 of us which included a baby, 5 teens and four adults so finding somewhere to cater for all of us in terms of keeping everybody happy and entertained was always going to be a challenge but Near Bank Cottage hit the nail on the head. From the moment we arrived we were blown away by the cottage. As other reviews have highlighted you are not left for wanting anything. Whether its the fully equipped games room, in which we tended to spend most of our time, or the fully equipped kitchen to feed a hoard of hungry teenagers the cottage has it all. The cottage is located down its own small track off a quiet lane so peace and tranquility is a given. The hot tub is fantastic and looks out over the surrounding countryside. There is also multiple outdoor areas for relaxing and entertaining. The bedrooms are all a really good size and we had no issues at all housing the ten of us. Probably the highlight of the stay for us had to have been the games room. It contains pool table, ping pong table, darts board, air hockey, TV, chromecast, WiFi, stack of DVDs and games/puzzles, toys, cuddly toy (yes I think there was actually a cuddly toy :) ) there is literally everything in this room you could need. The house benefits from WiFi throughout which had recently been added which as much as you would like to think you dont need it its actually a great benefit. In terms of the location there is not a great deal to do on your doorstep but to be honest once you are in the cottage you need to find a damn good reason to leave. The beach is only a 5 minute drive away buts that's as far as we ventured. Overall I cannot express how great Near Bank Cottage is and we will definitely be returning.

A Joyful Break
Beautiful cottage, I'd say it was equipped but it would not do the cottage justice, it has everything and i mean EVERYTHING! Nearest decent shop is five mins away (Bootle) owners are so helpful and a pleasure to meet, i would recommend trips to Ravenglass and the local pubs. Feedback for the owners is minimal, WI-FI strength is a little weak in lounge and upstairs. Enjoy your stay! Do not forget to go the king billy grill!!!
