    “Didn't want to go home”

    We stayed for a week in Dandy Lodge apartment, we wish it could have been longer. ...

    We stayed for a week in Dandy Lodge apartment, we wish it could have been longer. There are 4 apartments in this converted barn and they are all finished and decorated to a high standard. There are 4 coat hooks on the wall as you walk and plenty of space for your clothes and belongings, a fully equipped kitchen complete with washer and dishwasher plus iron and mini ironing board, I found a hairdryer and all the equipment manuals in bedside drawers. The walk in shower with both a rainforest and normal shower head was brilliant, the bed was comfy, you could stay in bed and watch the large screen tv if you wanted or just lounge on the settee. Plenty of plug sockets, some with USB ports. There is an site shop and a fantastic bar bistro which we highly recommend, the chef is brilliant and we spent far more time in there than we intended, the owner Ian, bar manager Carlton and all the staff are so helpful and even though we are all being COVID safe they still made it friendly and relaxing. If you have any food allergies don't be worried about asking, plenty of options. This spot is an ideal base for trips to the Lake District or Scotland but the local area is gorgeous too. It was lovely to have a day out and come back to this place, It's an ideal base for cyclists, walkers and ramblers too. Watch out for the chickens just roaming around, we knew we were back from a trip out when we saw them wandering across the road as we got close. We cannot wait to go back, we drove 3 hours to get here but I will be booking again asap. The apartment photos were taken on the day we left, it still looks good after we had made it our home for a week.

About the location

BOWNESS-ON-SOLWAY

Wigton 10 miles; Carlisle 13 miles.

The village of Bowness-on-Solway lies within the Solway Coast Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, to the west of the city of Carlisle. The village has a pub and a tea room and Hadrian’s Wall stretches from the village to Wallsend near Newcastle for some 73 miles, with the walk being defined as a ‘National Trail’. The surrounding area is rich in bird life visiting the sand dunes, salt marsh, shingle beds, and peat mosses, and there are many viewpoints and lay-bys, perfect for spotting the waders: oystercatchers, curlew, golden and grey plover, lapwing, knot, dunlin, bar-tailed and black-tailed godwit, redshank, and turnstone. In 1869 a rail line, the Solway Junction Railway, was opened between Bowness and Annan in Scotland, connecting to the Maryport and Carlisle railway. The 1 mile and 176 yard long iron girder viaduct across the water was damaged by an ice build-up in 1875, and again in 1881. It was repaired and continued as a passenger train until 1914 when it became a freight train until 1921, before finally being demolished in 1934. Nearby, the market town of Wigton and the city of Carlisle are popular centres for shopping, pubs and restaurants. Wigton also has a weekly market taking place every Friday and also boasts a theatre. The Victorian seaside resort of Silloth is 16 miles away, whilst Keswick and the heart of the Lake District are reached in 40 minutes' by car. A wonderful base for exploring Cumbria and the Scottish Borders.
