About Rose

Tel: 07752059460. My husband grew up in nearby Barrow and, as a family we have explored the area with our children for many years. Keen to continue this even when his parents were no longer around, we fell in love with this cottage which we think is in an idyllic location. Although we live more than 200 miles away, we get up whenever we can - our dogs are in their element at the cottage and run for miles across the sands. Our children as adults visit with their friends - taking the opportunity to go for long walks, bike rides,paddling their kayaks and flying kites.

Rose purchased this bungalow in 2006

Why Rose chose Aldingham

We had no intention of purchasing a property but it was one of those moments where we both fell instantly in love with the cottage and location and knew we must have it. We've had no regrets and, besides letting it out, ourselves, family and friends have had many magical holidays at the cottage.

The cottage is cosy and quirky and equipped with everything you may need - hopefully! Dogs are safe in the grounds of the property but so near the beach for long walks. You can relax in the privacy of the gardens on sun loungers or choose to sit on a raised decking so you have a stunning view out over the bay.

What makes this bungalow unique

Location, location! stunning views from the conservatory and gardens over Morecambe Bay with the hills of the Lake District in the distance. The seclusion and tranquillity of the cottage - no near neighbours. Pubs (and food) 5 mins walk away, one dog friendly. Vast sands to walk out on (ideal for dogs). Amazing bird life in Morecambe Bay can be viewed from the property. Ideal base for exploring Southern and Western Lake District or just going for walks and bike rides from the property.

Fantastic location, lovely cosy cottage.

  • 5 of 5

This is a great place to stay. The cottaage is cosy, clean and warm. It has a big conservatory to view the beach and sea. Just a few steps from the garden and your on the beach, great for dogs children and grown up children. Just a few miles from a town but the peace and quiet is amazing (in fact the town is very peaceful too). We love Gillions tea rooms in Ulverston, very old fashioned just like the town itself. We cannot come back for a few years so will miss Maskel beach.

Quiet and fantastic for dogs

  • 5 of 5

Super location, right on the beach, with miles of sand which was perfect for off lead walking and play with the dog. Often there would be nobody else in sight. Cottage was well equipped and comfortable. I loved the enclosed garden and the cows in the field next door! Dog-friendly pub just 10 minutes walk away - we were made very welcome there.

Best holiday we have had for a long time...

  • 5 of 5

We have had many holidays with sea views but none compare to this holiday cottage. It was fantastic, lovely accommodation, best views ever, literally 20 steps from door to beach.

We took our two cats with us and they loved it, spending all their time in the wonderful sun lounge either on the windowsills asleep or checking out the local bird life.

Practically speaking the kitchen was wonderful, the oven is so efficient and made cooking meals enjoyable. I was happily surprised to find a dishwasher as well.

We hope to go again this year and many times in the years to come.

Lovely and quiet

  • 5 of 5

Lovely place to relax in, quiet (except the nesting rooks) with great views over Morecambe bay. I even took a photo of Blackpool tower some 22 miles away.

Our little dog loved it and waited by the gate whenever we went outside.

So good we didn't want to leave

  • 5 of 5

Honestly the quietest place we have ever stopped. Fantastic location on the beach front. And I mean fantastic. No need for a dog lead while staying here. Had such a good time. Can't wait to go back and that's not like us lol. One of the best holidays we've had.

Cosy, quiet and beautifully located.

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely, quiet few days. The kids enjoyed the space, we enjoyed the peace and quiet and we all enjoyed being right on the beach, the dog especially. The cottage is warm, homely and has good amenities. There is a good range of garden birds, with lots of huge windows to watch them from. The natural light here is amazing and on clear nights you get great stargazing because of the lack of light pollution. Rose was lovely to deal with and we will book again.

Pet friendly, Maskel Beach is situated in an idyllic position on the beach on South Lakes peninsula. Lake Windermere is 20 mins drive, lively town of Ulverston with its many festivals is 4 miles, Buddhist Centre 2 miles, bird watching over Morecambe Bay from the property. Excellent walking and cycling from the property. Secluded, private grounds but also magnificent views over the bay. Many good restaurants nearby, including within walking distance and dog friendly. Please be aware the foreshore is 10m of stoney beach before the sands.
