Great Urswick, with its two characterful pubs and restaurant, is a hidden gem, a lovely village just two 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. Facilities include 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. The Furness Coast boasts sandy beaches and good birdwatching. Windermere and Coniston are within easy reach, and nearby family attractions include the Haverthwaite and Lakeside Steam Railway, the South Lakes Wild Animal Park, Muncaster Castle and the Aquarium of the Lakes.

Previous visitors' comments about Cape Landings:
It's hard to find anything to dislike. The cottage was clean, warm and cosy. A real little jem. We slept like logs. My husband and I used the cottage as a base to visit many local attractions. We were lucky enough for there to be a Victorian Fayre in Ulverston the weekend we were there, all of the market stall holders and shop owners dressed up and there was a lovely atmosphere. We had lots of long walks with our dog and we loved the stunning scenery.
Mrs Gallimore, Trimdon Station, November 2012
Ideal base to get to the best parts of the Lake District. Cape Landing made a very cosy and peaceful base to return to in the evening.
Mr Davies, Liverpool, October 2012
Cape Landings was wonderful, the location could not be better with the tarn just a few yards from the door. The cottage was beautifully furnished and really felt 'home from home'. There was absolutely everything you might need from a corkscrew to plenty of maps and walking books. We would highly recommend and can't wait to go back again.
Miss Dixon, Stratford-upon-Avon, June 2012
A peaceful location with good food available at local pubs. Bigger towns within easy reach by car.
