4 luxury eco lodges in the Lake District, reinterpreting traditional materials and vernacular features for the 21st century. Southwaite Green provides eco living in the beautiful Lake District, combining 5- star quality with green principles............ *The cottages are spacious and luxurious and combine the traditional character of Lake District farm buildings with the most modern eco design and energy efficient technology. Passive design based on traditional features, heating, lighting, furniture, fittings and appliances all contribute to the unique development that is Southwaite Green. A cottage handbook in each house explains the special features which will enable you to minimise your carbon footprint during your stay............... *The West Cumbrian coast is only a short journey from the Lake District but most visitors to Cumbria are entirely unaware of the variety of attractions on offer. There is the feeling of the land opening out to give way to the sea and the sky. The hills of south west Scotland provide an ever-changing backdrop to the shifting tides of the Solway Firth. The unspoilt character of the coast will attract nature lovers. The Solway Firth is an important area for sea birds, particularly migrating species and the coastal dunes support well-established communities of native wild flowers, insects and butterflies. ............ *There are several important nature reserves along the coast which are easily reached from Allonby..............* The village grew over the centuries as a fishing community with rows of cottages along cobbled lanes mingling with traditional farm houses and the grander residences of the more well-to-do. It is hard to find any two properties alike and although visitors are attracted by the quiet charm of the village they will find friendly cafes and pubs as well as Twentymans’ ice cream and sweet shop, famous for miles around. At the centre of the village is a secure childrens’ play area and there is a swimming pool at the local caravan site which is open to the general public............... * The beach has been awarded the prestigious Blue Flag Award for 10 years running and offers clean safe bathing for all ages. Low tides reveal large expanses of sand and the gently sloping shore will attract builders of sandcastles and beachcombers. Wind surfing has become popular in recent years and the area hosted the national wind surfing championships in 2004. The sport has a dedicated area of shore and participants ensure their activities do not encroach on others’ enjoyment of the beach.................... * The village forms part of the western end of the Roman Wall World Heritage Site and there are several sites to visit including the Senhouse Roman Museum at the Roman fort in Maryport only 5 miles from the village. Maryport is a Georgian town whose prosperity was based around the harbour. The harbour area has a small fishing fleet, a marina and the Lake District Coast Aquaria, a top visitor attraction in the county. There is also a railway station. providing train connections to Carlisle and to south Cumbria along a scenic coastal route.................... * You will not find theme parks, candy floss or fair grounds on the West Cumbrian coast but you will find open spaces and wide skies, friendly people, and a natural landscape to explore with few restrictions.
