Our bungalow, Oban, is in a great location on the edge of the Lake District. We are just five minutes from the beach with views up the Duddon Estuary with the glorious backdrop of the Cumbrian Fells. It is ideal for families who enjoy the outdoor life as there are so many walks just locally or in the Lakes. Your pets are very welcome. The village of Ireleth is quiet but very friendly and there are shops and take aways nearby in Askam.
The bungalow is set up to ensure everything is easy to find and use. We have been described as "a home from home". There is a manual in the living room with all the information you will need.
We keep a well-stocked pantry to get you started with cooking.
There is plenty of space for parking and for your kids and dogs to play. We hope you enjoy sitting outside at the big table and watching the sunsets.
You have full use of the bungalow and the garden. We store our items in the shed and the garage so these are kept locked. The garage is taken over by families of swallows in the summer so just sit outside and watch them swoop by.

I will be there to meet you when you arrive and show you where things are stored and how things work.
There is a box of leaflets showing what is going on in the area and plenty of maps to borrow but I`m happy to suggest outings for people of different ages.
I`ll show you good places to walk your dog once you have settled in.

I am a retired Headteacher and spend my time dogwalking and tending to my lovely horse. I also have a garden next to the bungalow (which guests are welcome to visit) and spend the summer bringing on vegetables and fruit - which my husband cooks.
I love reading and watching films and am part of a local cinema group.
I`m proud to be the President of our local WI. It`s not what the image suggests!
We hope our guests and their families and pets will relax in our happy house and just enjoy the outdoors and the freedom to walk and play.
