Allithwaite holiday cottages are ideally located for exploring the Lake District and Cumbria Coast. Allithwaite is a small village in Cumbria, a mile west of Grange-over-Sands. This traditional South Lakelands community lies on a dramatic stretch of coast with views across Morecambe Bay. In the village centre, there is a post office, a grocery and a graceful parish church, dating back to 1864, next to a playground and playing field. For a pint of local ale, head to the Pheasant Inn, a lively pub with good food prepared with fresh, local ingredients. Just south of the village, Wraysholme Tower is a striking 15th century pele tower adjoining a farmhouse. The glorious countryside surrounding Allithwaite is scattered with some of the region’s prettiest villages and market towns. A mile east of Allithwaite, Grange-over-Sands is a charming Edwardian resort, nestled between the sea and mountains with a sweeping sandy beach and a variety of independent shops.
