The cottage was in a fabulous location and the owners were very friendly.. We enjoyed our early morning visits from the dog! The cottage is comfortable and very well equipped. A great base to explore the surrounding area (which for us included a trip over the boarder into Scotland). We would definitely stay again if we return to the same area.

This cottage and location are both hidden gems! Quite remote, no pubs, shops or beach nearby so not for everyone but for the likes of us, the peace and quiet, the fantastic view over the estuary and the walks round the nature reserves were just what we appreciate. We came home feeling re-charged and relaxed even though the weather was more wet than sunny. Never been to the area before but with the roman wall and the remains of the roman fort close by we enjoyed the history. The cottage is very comfortable and finished to a high standard and there is everything there you need for self catering. Due to the distance we had to go we just had one meal out at the pub but the hospitality and the food were spot on! Great holiday.

One of the nicest cottages we have ever stayed in.. The view over the Solway Firth was amazing. Our hosts were lovely people, chatty but not intrusive.

Sonya's cottage is a beautifully peaceful and scenic position, overlooking the estuary.. If you want to escape, this is the place to go, lovely local walks around the estuary, great local nature reserves and a stunning view over the estuary and the Lakes on a clear day. The cottage was warm, comfortable and clean, the owners Phil & Naomi were very welcoming and accommodating to any of our needs and their pet dog Mitzy was a hit with the kids. A lovely holiday, would strongly recommend it to anybody looking for the peaceful life.

The host Sonya was amazing! Just the perfect balance of being helpful but not being around all the time. We LOVED MITSY and I personally feel she would be a huge selling point for other clients you should list this on the advert. Cottage was absolutely beautiful. Loved every minute.

We have just returned from a week spent at Sonia's Cottage and it was everything we could wish for - a beautiful property set in idyllic surroundings with fabulous views - the perfect place for a restful and relaxing break.. . The wine and chocolates were a lovely extra touch and were very much appreciated. Wigton was a short drive away and had a good range of shops and a few cafes. Penrith and Carlisle were also within an half hour's drive. Brilliant!

Fantastic cottage and hot tub was lovely to come back to at the end of the day particularly as we were a bit unlucky with the weather.. The cottage is well equipped. The owners Phil and Naomi live next door and could not be more friendly and helpful. We had a minor plumbing issue during our stay and it was sorted immediately. We did a lovely 12 mile loop cycle ride via Bowness on Solway and made some trips by car to the North Lakes. There are some lovely views from the cottage over the river. Overall a very relaxing stay.

A beautiful location and cosy cottage.. The owners were so welcoming, a handy little guide to things to do was inside the cottage was very useful and Carlisle is only half hour drive where loads to see and do. hot tub was added bonus and my 13yr old niece enjoyed playing on the zip wire at the rear of the cottage. Lovely relaxing week away from it all. Would highly recommend if you’re looking for some down time away from it all. PS this cottage has the best walk in shower I’ve ever used!

Mr Ross

Lovely lovely cottage in a great location, we wanted a relaxing week away with the kids visiting places around Cumbria and that’s what we got, the cottage itself is of a very high standard, nice and clean with everything we needed.. Lots of places to visit within an hours drive. Only thing that could make this place better is a log burner just to add to the cottages already homely feel. Would also recommend a restaurant call Ye old greyhound about 30-40 min drive from the cottage but well worth the drive, food and service were amazing
July 2017
This beautiful cottage was booked for a week 24th June to 1st July for three of us. Despite it being a little isolated the cottage is perfect in everyway. There is a BBQ and a wonderful hot-tub. The views are to die for, we wanted a week of peace and quite and that is what we got! There is a cute tree swing, and we met Mitzy the dog and played throwing the ball game. The owners Phil and Naomi are very friendly and helpful. We would definitely recommend this cottage.
July 2017
Loved everything about it, the additional advantage of the washing machine ensured we didn't have the usual day of washing etc when arriving back home was a huge bonus, loved the hot tub after a lot of walking during the day..

The outlook was spectacular and changed every day with wildlife.. The hot tub was a welcome bonus and used every day even in october. I would recommend reviewing the directions from the M6. we did not use a satnav and got lost trying to carry out the instructions of 9.75 miles .!! It would help if it was mentioned to turn right signposted Anthorn. But saying that we had a very enjoyable week and would thoroughly recommend Sonyas cottage .

If you like tranquility then this is just the place. This was a return visit for us having originally visited in 2014. A beautiful cottage which was restored by the owners, who are also the most welcoming of hosts you could possibly imagine. (Along with Mitzi the dog who will keep any young children for a week of ball fetching!) Superbly furnished cottage with views to die for over the Solway Firth. There is also a zip wire and trampoline for children as well as a hot tub. A third visit will certainly be on the cards for us.

An amazing cottage set on a tidal estuary.. The tide comes in twice a day an the estuary changes with the tide. Great for bird enthusiasts or if you just want to sit and chill and take in the virw. The cottage itself is clean and finished to a high standard. Beds and sofas very comfortable. We would recomend this cottage to anyone looking to get away for a quiet break.
Mr Savage, September 2016
August 2016
A well equipped, clean and spacious cottage.. We had everything we needed to hand for an enjoyable holiday. Loved the hot tub, beautiful views, lovely countryside. So peaceful and hosts were very welcoming and helpful and made a fuss of the children. They loved kayaking on the Solway, a new experience! Great shower in wet room. Well placed location to explore the Lake district and RSPB sites.
Mrs Wass, August 2016

If we are to go for a holiday in the Lakes again then we would certainly look to book Sonya's Cottage, the owners have thought of and provided everything you could wish for on your stay, from decent pans to cook with to candles for sitting outside.. This cottage is a home from home for holiday makers and the owners (who live next door) are friendly and happy to help be it suggestions on where to eat or queries about the cottage. Stunning quiet location, perfect place to get away from it all and relax.
