About the property

House in Arnside, Nr. Kendal, Lake District, Cumbria, England - Stunning Contemporary Holiday Home With Close Proximity To The Beach, Village, Pubs, Cafes And Shops

The Coach House at Arnside has been totally refurbished in a contemporary style to create a stunning holiday home. Our home is perfect for a family holiday or a short break all year round as the beach, lakes and mountains are only a short distance away. Ideally located in the village of Arnside and only 100 metres from the beach you will experience outstanding views of the Estuary and the Lakeland Peaks. Within the village you will find an array of shops including a Post Office, Hairdressers, Art Gallery, Beauty Salon, Convenience Stores, and Cafes. After a day of sightseeing and activities the village pubs with gardens prove extremely popular with visitors to sit and relax with a drink and soak up the sunset and breathtaking views. Arnside is in a designated area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and there are many walks around Arnside and Silverdale as well as all of the benefits of the Lake District on our doorstep.

About Brian & Diane Potter

Let us introduce ourselves, our names are Brian and Diane and we live just outside Kendal on the edge of the Lake District. As a family we have visited many countries but our hearts remain here! We purchased The Coach House and undertook an extensive two year programme of refurbishment to create a home to an extremely high standard and as a family have spent a lot of time at The Coach House and enjoyed all the benefits of the area and all our home has to offer.

Brian & Diane Potter purchased this house in 2011

Why Brian & Diane Potter chose Arnside

Having Lived in Cumbria all our lives and spent alot of time in Arnside we felt the location was perfect for a beach holiday as well as having the Lake and Mountains on our doorstep. The Coach House offers everything in a relaxing yet stunning location without having to experience the busy commercial areas of the Central Lakes.

What makes this house unique

The proximity of the beach is a very short walk of approximately 100 metres and the views are truly outstanding. Something we have never tired off! The area and scenery is amazing and we feel very fortunate to able to live and work in this area. The M6 is extremely accessible and the Rail and Transport Links to Arnside are excellent. The surrounding area and its abundance of attractions will appeal to families, walkers, cyclists and couples.

Beautiful but noisy

  • 3 of 5

Lovely presented and very clean contemporary three bed house but the upper floor appears to me a mezzanine ceiling which makes externally loud creaking noises when anyone moved or walks above you. It's quite disturbing if some are wanting to sleep and others not.

Beautiful bathroom and spacious shower and large bath.

Well stocked kitchen and again beautiful and clean.

Front room has two leather sofas one of which has a broken (?) frame or poor design and last night as I sat down the frame caught my shoulder causing a small injury. It's impossible to see until you sit down! Could have been very nasty and glad my disabled mum didn't sit there.

Next doors drain over flows across our exit leaving food debris we have to walk through and then get into our car- not impressed with this at all and very nasty.

We all found the beds very uncomfortable with hard mattresses, my mattress was lumpy and impossible to get comfortable.

We are requested to take shoes off (carpets are cream 😬, but the slippers provided are unsafe for people with mobility problems as very flimsy and a trip hazard. They didn't fit my father with larger feet!

All this said we had a lovely holiday and I'm sure the issues mentioned could be resolved.

Owner's Response: Many thanks for your lovely comments about our home being lovely presentable and it being beautifully clean. We always do a very thorough clean before each guest arrives and pride ourselves with the beautiful home that we have personally designed and built ourselves. We are extremely proud of our families achievement which reflects on all the reviews that we have received from our much valued guests. We have noted the issues that you experienced and would like this opportunity to address and resolve the issues that you have raised. All Bedrooms are fully enclosed and our architect designed a feature in two of the front bedrooms with a glass wall which overlooks the original coach archway to the beachfront mansion which reflects so much natural light into the bedrooms and makes a fantastic feature both in the bedrooms and in the double height living room. There is no mezzanine. We have also inspected the sofa and assure you the frame is not broken. Whilst the sofas are contemporary design we do appreciate that they are not everyone's choice. We are totally committed to an ongoing refurbishment of works within our home and so far this year we have had all the mattresses replaced including an orthopaedic mattress, the carpets have been professionally cleaned, new microwave, new outdoor bistro table and chairs, new dining table and chairs and Marks and Spencers Bedding. With all of our bookings we always provide a complimentary Welcome Pack to show our appreciation of your booking and feel that it is so important to provide a personal touch to each booking. Our welcome pack is very comprehensive and includes an endless list of supplies for your self catering stay which includes milk, sugar, orange juice, tea. coffee, a supply of washing up liquid, dishwasher tablets, washing powder, kitchen and toilet rolls, bin liners, teatowels, dishcloths, pan scourer, your own personal toiletries, cotton buds, cotton wool pads, shower caps and slippers. It is our guests personal preference if they wish to use any of this Welcome Pack. The Coach House is situated in a very quiet residential area and our neighbours are all absolutely wonderful and would be absolutely be mortified that they have experienced a problem with their drains during your stay. We have never experienced that problem. We are so pleased that you had a lovely holiday and Arnside is so beautiful and we feel blessed that we live in such a beautiful area. I
