Why stay here ...

Vera Williamson and her husband Joe are the new owners of Old Kiln Farm CL, Allonby. As it is a working farm you can spend the day watching sheep and lambs in the fields next to the site.

The site is only 100 metres from a sandy beach and set in a quiet position with views of the Scottish hills and skiddaw. A mile away is the rural seaside village of Allonby, which has 2 pubs (pet friendly), tea rooms, a fish & chip shop (open daily) and the very popular ice cream shop.

Amazing

What an amazing spot! We had a short break here Aug 2020. Fantastic views, very clean site (the cleanest portaloo I have ever used) Vera is so lovely & welcoming. The site is spotless, hand sanitizer available every where. we walked into Allonby along the beach & had fish & chips one day, the next day we did the same but had ice cream from the little ice cream shop that also sells essentials. so relaxing & even though it is on a main road its very quiet at night. Will definitively be back.

outstanding

Just visited Old Kiln Farm for 2 nights, its a immaculately keep site and working farm, Your host Vera is constantly ensuring that everything is spot on. The site is on a bus route to nearby towns but best of all is the wonderful beach walks. When the tide is out it reveals miles of sandy beaches. fantastic views, so take along binoculars for seascape watching. looking south east you can see the wonderful West Lakeland fells which are completely unspoiled and over tourism. The Georgian Gem Town of Cockermouth, birth place of William Wordsworth is a short drive away. Closer still is Mayport. home of the White Star Line with a lovely marina area. There are many gems to be found from a Roman museum to fantastic eateries. Vera is a very nice lady with a genuine interest in her guests, she is a mine of information and always on hand to help. she is rightly proud of the site. The toilet block includes a shower unit and is spotless, picnic tables are also set out for guests. The village of Allonby is a short coastal walk 1/2 mile (ish) and there you will find a nice pub, fish and chip shop and a shop selling practically everything. A really nice touch was that on arrival there was a welcoming maker board out with my name on it and the pitch number, this made us feel a little special. What I especially like about this site is it is placed right on the Cumbria Solway Coast. The sunsets are awesome and the area is of special scientific interest. I noticed people fishing from the beach so another recreational opportunity.

This site is a little gem

Beautiful positioned site and well maintained. Spotless shower room, toilet and washroom. Level site with hard standing and hookups. Well signed and easy to find and only about 100 mtr from the beach although the pull in to the site is a little tight for larger units as the lane is narrow. The owner is most welcoming and nothing is too much trouble
