Little Nook is only ¾-mile from a beautiful sandy beach, which is perfect for a breath of fresh air and also good for exercising your four-legged friends. Dogs are welcome to come and stay and there’s plenty of good walks locally. The famous St Bees priory dating back to the 11th century is well worth a visit, and can be accessed on foot in 5 minutes.

Your nearest lake is Ennerdale which is regarded as one of the most unspoilt and natural parts of the Lake District, where wildlife is abundant, including buzzards, red squirrels and osprey to name a few. If you want to climb the highest mountain in England, you can reach Wasdale Head in just 18 miles, which gives you the shortest route to the summit of Scafell Pike. Or why not take a trip on the La’al Ratty which is a miniature steam railway along the South West coast? For golfers, St Bees offers an excellent 9-hole links course. From Little Nook you’re never far from the mountains, the coast, the beaches or the lakes. Beach ¾ mile. Shop 100 yards, pub and restaurant 50 yards.

“Small but cozy. Just right for me and my dog. Ideal location for railway station and beach. Enclosed yard would benefit from some flowering pots and greenery. Lack of tea shop and gift shop egg in village. Only one tea room which is at beach.”

“Lovely little cottage just right for 2, kitchen well equipped and the cottage was toasty warm garden was very small which was not a problem beach near by, we went to 5 lakes lots of walking. Pubs x2 in village not great for food so we cooked in a fair bit. Priory is interesting and folks in the village are friendly would recommend”

“A lovely little cottage big enough for two people. The kitchen had everything you need, lounge had a comfortable sofa, the bed was very comfortable and the excellent shower was hot and powerful. The temperature dropped in our last evening at The cottage and the central heating kicked I. At once making it really warm and cosy. We managed to park within 100m every day although nobody seemed to take any notice of double yellow lines nearby! Surprised there were no shops in St Bees ( apart from the very small Post Office) although there are several large supermarkets only a few miles away on the road into Whitehaven.During our week we visited virtually everywhere between Millon in the south to Silloch to the north. The scenery in Ennerdale, Wasdale and Eskdale is superb and not to be missed.”

“Lovely base to get out and about ,inly thing I will say no parking outside property and have to park on railway carpark so if you are bad with walking this wouldn't be ideal,quite noisy for a small village during night ,and not much space outside in yard if you have a big dog only room for a table and two chairs ,shower very small so if your on larger size you would struggle ,cant understand why they've not put a bath over shower in coz plenty of room in bathroom to do this.but appart from that lively little cottage and would book again ,dogs loved all beaches we visiting all around area to .”

“Great location by the sea but not had much on shopping side of it but that's all thank you.”

“The cottage itself is small and perfectly formed. Everything was well thought through and all the essentials you could want were there. A comfy bed, Netflix and a cosy fireplace made for relaxing evenings. The location is great for people as it is very near 2 great pubs serving food and only half a mile from the beach. We were travelling with 2 Golden Retrievers and the location was not the best for them. The enclosed courtyard was secure but not large enough to let the dogs relax in. The front door opens straight onto the road with cars passing close by, often at speed, and there is nowhere near by to exercise them late at night so we had to go to the park on the other side of the railway line which wasn't great. That said both dogs were extremely happy with the proximity of the beach and the local pubs were more than dog friendly which was lovely. We had a really nice holiday here and would definitely go back again.”
