Set back from the coast in a well kept development of similar properties with free access to an onsite swimming pool, the three lodges are traditionally constructed to a high Scandinavian standard, with lovely views over wooded fells and a small loch.
Whether as a couples' hideaway from 'the real world', for a memorable family holiday by the sea, or as a base for group activity such as cycling or golf, Thistle Lodges will suit you perfectly.
Owned by the proprietors of the multi award-winning Monkhouse Hill Cottages in Cumbria, the lodges are well equipped and furnished to a high standard. Each is laid out over two floors with a balcony to each floor. Full air ducted central heating ensures the lodges are warm and cosy throughout the year.
On the ground floor is a large living and dining area for 8 people, with a fully equipped kitchen adjacent. A large balcony with furniture for dining 'al fresco' is accessed through sliding doors from the living area. Also downstairs is a double bedroom and the newly-fitted main bathroom with over-bath shower.
On the first floor is another double bedroom with an en-suite wc and wash basin. Also upstairs is a large open plan sleeping area with four single beds and a small balcony.
The kitchens are newly fitted and equipped with ceramic hob and oven, refrigerator and freezer, dishwasher and washer/dryer, microwave, kettle and toaster. There is a good range of cooking equipment and utensils, crockery, glassware and cutlery. The living rooms have a CD/radio/cassette player and a television with DVD player.
The lodges are also specially equipped for mountain bikers enjoying the nearby 7-Stanes routes, with bike storage, bike wash and tool provision (eg bike stand and floor pump)
Being close to each other, the lodges are ideal for group holidays of up to 24 people.
