    “We had the most relaxing time at this cottage, it is very comfortable and well equipped.”

    We particularly love the location as we have dogs and it is straight out of the door onto the beach for some great walks. There are also plenty of places to drive to and then go walking. Nearby Ulveston has good shopping for all your provisions and plenty of places to eat. This the fifth time we have been to this cottage and we will definitely book again. Highly recommended for a quiet break away.

About the location

BARDSEA

Ulverston 2 miles.

Set on a hill looking across to Morecambe Bay is the small village of Bardsea. This remote area grew from a small fishing village and farming area into a major transportation link for coal, iron ore and corn. No longer a vital port, Bardsea still retains its fishing heritage, and features a pub serving fine ales and good food. The village is close to spectacular Furness Abbey, while the ancient market town of Ulverston is just 2 miles away, and still has a street market every Thursday and Saturday, plus many festivals throughout the year, including an amazing lantern procession in September and a superb Dickensian weekend in early December. With all the attractions of the Lake District National Park, beaches and good birdwatching of the Furness coast close by, this peaceful and quiet area has plenty to offer.
