We came across Lauriston Stay during our search for a much needed break away from work and lockdown life. And what a find.
We stayed in the Pump Room which is simply wonderful. The room has a private entrance, the decor is clean, fresh and has all you need for a short stay, including a small fridge and basic refreshments (tea, coffee, water etc.). The room also has small private patio area with a bistro set, perfect for a morning coffee.
The hosts couldn’t do enough for us, and their local knowledge was superb. We wanted a day out and wasn’t sure where to go, (as we’d never been to the lovely village of Birch before).
On their recommendation, we visited Mersey Island - which is a must. They recommended a quaint seafood hut, which was great, we picked up some fresh cockles for our walk along the beach. They also suggested a pub which was perfect for a drink after our walk. It was so authentic, with local fisherman enjoying a pint after their oyster catch for the day. The food served in the pub was also superb! We really had a great day.
After our day out at Mersey Island, we headed back to the Pump Room via the local supermarket for a relaxed evening on the sofa (thanks to the complementary Netflix).
We had a great time at Lauriston Stay and highly recommend it. The Pump Room was perfect for us, and the area was great too, even more so if you like wildlife and walking (which we do). We will definitely go back, as there is so much more exploring to be done, and Lauriston Stay is a proper gem too!
