    • “We stayed in Beech Cottage over the February Half Term Holiday. We arrived late on Friday evening and were delighted to find the fire was lit, there was fresh milk in the fridge, and tea and coffee on the worktop in the kitchen, all we needed to do was boil the kettle! The fuel was included, the cottage was warm, clean and well equipped. We had a fantastic stay and would recommened the property to anyone wanting a quiet break.”

About the location


Ulverston 4 miles.

Originating from the Norse word for huts, the small village of Scales quietly rests on the Cumbrian peninsula providing a great base from which to explore this lovely area. The ancient market town of Ulverston is just 4 miles away and whilst many Lakeland destinations have been developed beyond recognition, Ulverston still has an authentic feel and community spirit. The town boasts a street market every Thursday and Saturday and many festivals throughout the year, whilst being renowned as the birthplace of Stan Laurel and home to the only Laurel and Hardy museum in the world! With all the attractions of the Cumbrian National Park and the Furness Coast with its sandy beaches and good bird watching within easy reach, and the nearby family attractions of the Ravenglass and Eskdale Railway, the South Lakes Wild Animal Park and Muncaster Castle, this great area has plenty to offer!
