Ulverston 3 miles; Coniston 11 miles.
Pennington is a small hamlet with a scattering of dwellings, farms and country pubs, situated on the beautiful Lake District Peninsula, an area of tranquillity, gentle hills and unspoilt walking country. Locally, the start of the Haematite and Cumbrian Way footpaths can be located, and the twin pubs at Great Urswick Tarn are renowned locally for their fine ales and good food. Pennington's nearby neighbour, Ulverston, is an ancient market town that still holds a street market every Thursday and Saturday. Today, the town is well known as a “festival town”, with events throughout the year, and as the birthplace of Stan Laurel - it is now home to the only Laurel and Hardy museum in the world! Facilities include a wide range of shops, pubs, restaurants, a cinema and a leisure centre. All of the attractions of the National Park are easily reached. The Furness Coast boasts sandy beaches and good birdwatching. Nearby family attractions include the Ravenglass and Eskdale Railway, the South Lakes Wild Animal Park and Muncaster Castle.

My husband and I loved the cosy cottage, open fire and surrounding area. We had a wonderful stay. Thank you very much.
Mrs Kostrzewa, Nottingham, April 2013
Thimble Cottage is beautiful and the photos on the website do not do it justice. We very much appreciated the little touches, such as the ready-made fire, tea, coffee, milk, eggs, biscuits and wine awaiting us on arrival.
