    “We had a lovely week at Driftwood-Cottage despite the weather being awful and it actually made the cottage more cozy.”

    The location is everything and the views are amazing across the bay. The cottage is light airy and had everything we needed. The log burner is fantastic for cold nights and the oil fired rads provide ample heat. The duvets were huge and my partner loved them but they were too big for me so I ended up with the blanket which was fine. There were a few minor issues such as the shower tray being blocked on first night which I had to unblock with drain unblocker which was provided under the sink ...

    The location is everything and the views are amazing across the bay. The cottage is light airy and had everything we needed. The log burner is fantastic for cold nights and the oil fired rads provide ample heat. The duvets were huge and my partner loved them but they were too big for me so I ended up with the blanket which was fine. There were a few minor issues such as the shower tray being blocked on first night which I had to unblock with drain unblocker which was provided under the sink. This could have been checked during the clean. The main bin was full from previous visitors and loose rubbish at the bottom which was not taken by bin men. Luckily we dont produce at lot of rubbish. The lock to the front door kept jamming and we nearly got locked out so I had to lubricate it with oil which sorted the problem. I know the owner would have sorted these issues if we would have asked them as they were just a text away but they were easy sorted. We would definitely return as I bet during the summer it would be even better.

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.
