The ancient market town of Ulverston still holds a street market every Thursday and Saturday. Today it’s well known as a festival town with events throughout the year, including walking and art festivals in the summer months and the renowned Dickensian festival in late November. One of the town’s great claims to fame is 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, cafes, restaurants and pubs, a cinema and a leisure centre. Whilst many Lakeland destinations have been developed beyond recognition, Ulverston still has an authentic feel and community spirit. 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 South Lakes Wild Animal Park, Birkrigg Common's Stone Circle, Morecambe Bay and Lakes Windermere and Coniston.

Previous visitors' comments about Oaklands:
An Olympic home worthy of a gold medal. The position of the property overlooking the town is superb, and is within easy access to the town. The property itself was outstanding, well equipped kitchen, fantastic furnishings with exceptional TV system and stereo facilities. Lovely extras included children's toys, plenty of gardening furniture and everything you could possible need in the kitchen to make family meals. I would definitely return, the whole family loved it.

The property was just gorgeous - truly luxurious! We had everything we needed on our doorstep including several delightful teashops and a wonderful chip shop! It felt secluded and private - the views, particularly from the bedrooms, were fabulous!
Mrs Mumford, Wymondham, July 2012
The cottage sits at the top of a hill, which oversees the town. The interior of the cottage is so well put together that the pictures don't do it justice!
