One-Off Feature

A gloriously romantic hideaway for two nestled at the bottom of the lighthouse tower in the heart of the South Walney Island Nature Reserve in Cumbria. It’s an ideal bolthole for two, where you can immerse yourself in the rugged natural surroundings, the wildlife and birdlife, and the stunning sea views.  For groups larger than two, there is another three bedroom cottage on site.

General Info

The nature reserve is run by the Cumbria Wildlife Trust and is a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI).  It is home to a wide variety of bird species including eider ducks, willow warblers, sandwich terns, gulls, oystercatchers, ringed plovers, among many others.  Grey seals can often be seen swimming in the sea at high tide.  A stay here will immerse you in nature and wildlife, and the sunrises and sunsets are not to be missed.

The Area Surrounding The Property / Accommodation

The chances are that you won’t want to stray far from the nature reserve as there’s so much to see and wonderful walking trails.  It is a wild, exposed coastal reserve with thousands of breeding seabirds, wintering birds, grey seals and coastal Flora.  The nearest town is Barrow in Furness, a 25 minute drive away.  Barrow is a Victorian town, perfectly situated with the sea on one side, and the Lake District on the other.  There are some great walking and cycling routes in the vicinity, as well as a good range of shops and restaurants, as well as a range of other places to visit including Furness Abbey, Piel Castle, and a golf club.
