Fuel, and power inc. in rent. Bed linen and towels inc. in rent. Off road parking. Electric car charging point. Enclosed lawned garden to the rear with patio, decking, furniture and summer house. Sorry, no smoking. Shop and pub 6.5 miles. Note: There is no access to the lighthouse. Note: The access road to property has had major improvements, however it is still bumpy in places, but is suitable for normal cars. Note: Maximum 2 adults. Note: Area is a Wildlife reserve, Beach is not accessible due to nesting and migrating birds. Note: This property has a 4pm check in time.

The reserve is a Nature Reserve run by the Cumbria Wildlife Trust and it is a Site of Special Scientific Interest and guests must respect that. No dogs are allowed at the property or anywhere on the reserve, even on a lead. When you are walking around on the reserve, you must keep to the paths, and don't go down onto the beach. Never go onto the long Spit of land at the very end of the island (past the fence). In the Autumn and Winter, huge numbers of wader birds use the beaches to rest, and it's vital they are undisturbed to save energy and help them survive the winter. In the Spring and Summer, coastal birds nest here and must not be disturbed or harmed. Some of the nests are hard to see and easy to stand on so please keep to the paths. The reserve is monitored by a Warden and it is embarrassing for them, for guests and for us for visitors to be told off for roaming around where they should not be. This is a bird watcher’s paradise. No fireworks should be let off at the property and no drones should be used. We also have neighbours and we ask that guests respect their privacy. This is a beautiful, family friendly holiday home, and whilst it has modern audio and video facilities for everyone to enjoy, it is not a place for a noisy party group weekend away.

Region: Impressive mountains, open fells and clear-water lakes, the Lake District has it all. From walking in the mountains to exhilarating watersports or just a gentle cruise on a steam-powered yacht, Cumbria is the perfect holiday destination.

Town: Walney Island is an island situated off the coast of England and the largest island in England. Boasting two nature reserves, miles of sandy beaches and a selection of pubs and restaurants, this location has much to offer. Many attractions and sporting activities remain available. Both Barrow and Dalton-in-Furness are nearby and the market town of Ulverston is within easy reach.
