Ideally placed for a quiet family holiday, the endless sandy beaches and rock pools will keep children amused for hours. They can fly a kite, search for crabs, make sandcastles, or play in the adventure playground adjoining the beach.

Adults will enjoy the peace and solitude; sitting on the balcony with a glass of wine in the evening, watching the sun sink slowly in the west.



Local Interest and Activities
If more activity appeals, then why not take the 15 minute walk to the Hodbarrow Nature Reserve, - where there is a R.S.P.B hide - and watch the many species of migrating birds which use this area to rest during their long flights from north to south, summer or winter.

Explore the adjacent dunes at Haverigg Haws - a dedicated S.S.S.I - where you can search for rare orchids and Natterjack toads.
The Cumbrian Coastal Way, a few steps away, can lead you north or south alongside the peaceful estuaries and inlets. If you like walking, what better way to pass the day?
Water Ski at Port Haverigg Ski Club, or fish for dab, plaice or mackerel from the breakwater, and ‘drink in’ the spectacular views of the Lakeland Hills all around you.

Ulverston, (20 miles) the birthplace of Stan Laurel of Laurel and Hardy, is a pretty Georgian town with cobbled streets and alleys to explore, a thriving Thursday market, and the Sir John Barrow monument on Hoad Hill. Climb to the top for some spectacular coastal views. Just outside Ulverston is Coniston Priory, a Buddhist retreat with a café, gift shop and lovely grounds bordering the estuary.
Muncaster Castle and Gardens( 12miles) is a ‘must see’. With many rare trees and plants, a World Owl Centre, a Meadow Vole Maze and the famous Muncaster Ghosts. You can even experience ’Darkest Muncaster’ from October to March (excluding January).
Ravenglass, one mile from Muncaster, is the home of ‘La’al Ratty’, the Ravenglass & Eskdale Railway. Steam to the hills at Dalegarth and explore the beautiful Lakeland fells.
To the south, Barrow in Furness (24 miles) has a very interesting Dock Museum and all the most popular high street shops, including a Next clearance outlet where you can always find a bargain. Savour a taste of the past at Grange over Sands ( 30 miles), a genteel Edwardian seaside resort.
Take the train to Sellafield Visitors centre, there is lots to do here - and all for free! Visit the only immersion cinema outside the US for a trip back to the time of the dinosaurs.
Georgian Whitehaven (27 miles) has strong Carribean connections and was the centre of the Rum trade in Georgian times. This historic link has brought us Cumberland Rum Butter amongst many more tasty culinary delights.
Why not take the train from Millom, 2 miles away, and explore historic Lancaster or Carlisle, Both trips hug the beautiful coastline and provide a memorable day out.
To summarise, Port Haverigg is situated on the Cumbrian Coastal Way in an unspoilt location close to all the attractions of the Lake District. It is only 16 miles from Coniston, but a world away from the crowds. And parking the car is just SO much easier!


Cockleshell Cottage is easily accessible
Cockleshell Cottage and Port Haverigg are easily accessible by public transport.
The town of Millom is just two miles away and there is a regular railway service from here - either to Barrow in Furness, Grange over Sands, and all points south, or towards Carlisle and Scotland to the north.

“What a location! We have been visiting the Lakes for 30 years and never knew such a quiet backwater existed. Away from the crowds, but so close to all our favourite haunts. The dog was very impressed!”

“very new decocor - quite a clinical effect. needs some small touches as bins in bathrooms and bedrooms, clock in lounge, spare loo rolls, towels for bathrooms, and maybe a bread bin. this prperty was very good value for money and did met expercations, I would let some friends about the property but not others. I would have liked to see a welcom pack of milk/small amount tea-coffee etc. small amount of salt and pepper; we have stayed local to this cottage in the past and we have been spoilt I think. [there was a botle of wine in the cottage]. the clildren loved it and so did the dog, which found the stairs interesting. [no stairs where we live]”

“A superb location and a very well equipped cottage caretaker helpful and considerate. The cottage has everything you would expect and more. The views are spectacular and the local people friendly and helpful. It was a lovely surprise to find a bottle of wine cooling and some snacks - there was even a treat for Winnie, our dog. The kitchen was well laid out and there were plenty of cooking utensils. The only slight problem was that the smoke detectors were extremely sensitive and consequently cooking was noisy!”
