    • “Our stay at this cottage was lovely. Very secluded. Just big enough for two, or maybe 2 and a child. There is everything you need here. Lovely area. Owners very contactible and neighbours friendly.”

    • “We would love to return”
    • tripadvisor rating
    • “This is a great cottage with superb facilities and pretty much all you need. We loved this place and hope to return sometime, the owners seem to have thought of most things that poeple might need even down to local maps and walking books which were really useful. The setting is amazing just a few metres away from a tarn. This is a great location in a small peaceful village with a gastro pub within walking distance. The lakes are only a short drive away and there is fantastic walking country on the doorstep. The only disapointing thing was no wifi.”

View of Tarn downstairs was a bit spoilt by neighbours tree.upstairs view beautiful. Shame cottege opposite had scaffolding up and workman which spoilt the view and a bit disturbing first thing. But not owners fault.”

About the location


Ulverston 3 miles.

Great Urswick, with its two characterful pubs, including 16th century restaurant and 12th century church, is a hidden gem, a lovely village just three miles to the south of Ulverston. Great Urswick and its neighbour, Little Urswick, lie on opposite sides of the same tarn. The tarn is a wonderful wildlife habitat with a whole host of water birds occupying its sheltered corner. Birkrigg Stone Circle is one of several prehistoric settlement sites in the surrounding countryside. Locally, the start of the Haematite and Cumbrian Way footpaths can be found. Nearby Ulverston is an ancient market town, which still holds a street market every Thursday and Saturday, with facilities including a wide range of shops, pubs and restaurants, a cinema and a leisure centre. All of the attractions of the Lake District National Park are easily reached, with the Furness Coast boasting sandy beaches and good birdwatching. Windermere and Coniston are also within easy reach, and nearby family attractions include the Haverthwaite and Lakeside Steam Railway, the South Lakes Safari Zoo, Muncaster Castle and the Aquarium of the Lakes.
