Allonby Has the Perfect Location for a Cottage Holiday.

The Cumbrian coast is a terrific destination for a self catering family break and the small village of Allonby has much to commend it as a place to stay. This area is officially an Area of Outstanding Beauty. Local children take much delight in the village shop that sells Twentyman’s ice cream, a Cumbrian product of renown.

The Cumbrian Coastal Way passes through Allonby and many visitors like to pick a section of this very long route, whilst on holiday. The walk can be combined with public transport and both adults and children of all fitness levels can enjoy following it. Local cycling routes also keep families fit as they tour the area. For golfers, there are courses only five miles away at Silloth and Maryport.

You can get to know the history of the village through some buildings of interest, including the Old Baths. Constructed by a group of Quakers in approximately 1830, it was a favourite place for the Victorians who enjoyed bathing in the seawater that was pumped there. The village church, Christ Church, is a fine church dating from 1845 with a neat churchyard and impressive stained glass windows.  Cobbled streets and the Victorian and Georgian buildings give this village a lot of character and it’s pleasant to stroll round its crooks and crannies. As a former centre for herring fishing, some old kippering houses still remain. The village hall hosts a local art exhibition every first weekend during August.

Allonby has the perfect, wide expanse of beach for family games and it has received awards for safety and for being a clean beach. It’s a popular haunt for fishing, kite surfing and windsurfing, but many people just come to admire the views over the Solway Estuary.

Bank Mill Nursery and Visitor Centre at nearby Beckfoot is more than the average garden centre. As well as selling plants, visitors are welcome to explore the reptile house, butterfly house, a nature reserve with wildlife pond and flower meadows. You can use the picnic tables or order food in the coffee shop. Even if self-catering, eating out is a welcome treat.

The local village inn is of interest as a Grade II listed building, which used to be a coaching inn in the 1600s. In 1857, the celebrated writers, Wilkie Collins and Charles Dickens stayed here.

Allonby may be small, but it offers unusual historic features and a gateway to both the coast and the countryside of one of the most popular counties for tourists in the UK.
