Glen Cottage
2 bedrooms, sleeps 4

This beautiful, tranquil cottage, once belonging to Cumbrian artist Percy Kelly, is the perfect base for exploring Allonby and the Lake District National Park.

This beautifully renovated cottage was once the home of the renowned Cumbrian artist Percy Kelly. You will see engraved in the lintel in the bedroom “AK – PK – 1958”. The artist lived in Cumbria for more than 50 years and in Glen Cottage for twelve of those. Follow the Kelly Trails which have been formed totally through Kelly’s paintings and drawings, and stretch from the door of Glen Cottage in Allonby to St Bees.
Glen Cottage itself is a very comfortable, tranquil cottage with views stretching out over the Solway Firth to Scotland in the distance.

It has insulated lime render walls inside and outside, as well as underfloor heating in the living room and sitting room making the house very warm and cosy. The sitting room retains a lot of original features including beams complete with hook, as well as a large inglenook fire place with a wood burner and sandstone flooring, which makes a particularly attractive and a cosy spot to warm up in front of after a long day exploring.
Allonby is a great base for walking, windsurfing, kite surfing, cycling or just relaxing on the beach. With 2 pubs serving meals, 2 shops and a take-away, you don’t have to worry about cooking after a busy day out.

Why not try the famous ’Allonby Whopper’ ice cream, people travel for miles to come and try one!
Only 200 yards across the road, guests can enjoy an afternoon of sea fishing, without a licence. For those who want to get out and about and explore the area, the Lake District National Park is on your doorstep. From Glen Cottage you can also easily explore the delights of the unspoilt Cumbrian Coast. Be sure however, to follow a Percy Kelly Trail! Beach 200 yards. Shop, pub and restaurant 100 yards.
