    “We really enjoyed staying in this property however we feel that it would have been better if there had been another comfortable chair in the lounge as the settee was a three seater and we were four adults.”

    I won't ask you to publish this but perhaps give feedback to the owners? We used one of our camping chairs which fitted in there nicely when we were watching the football!

    Thanks for your feedback, we're so pleased you enjoyed your stay. We now have 2 large, very comfy velvet beanbags in the twin bedroom, these can be moved downstairs for extra seating as and when needed - Sykes owner relations

The property

Ulverston 7.4 miles.

Resting in the peaceful village of Backbarrow, near the market town of Ulverston, is this semi-detached property, 20 Abbots Vue.

Set over two floors and sleeping four guests, 20 Abbots Vue is a lovely family setting for your next Lake District getaway, within easy reach of Windemere and Morecambe Bay.

You are greeted into the property by a hallway, hosting a convenient cloakroom to freshen up in, before making your way into the kitchen, certain to entice any budding chefs, while the living/dining room allows you to come together with loved ones to enjoy an evening meal or gather round the woodburning stove as you get the popcorn ready for a family film night.

Upstairs there is a bathroom with both bath and shower, to allow you the choice of how to freshen up for the day, as well as a master bedroom and a twin room where you can catch up on rest ahead of an exciting new day.

Outside there is a sought-after off-road parking spot at the rear of the property, and a suntrap patio that boasts furniture to allow you to take your dining alfresco.

Backbarrow itself is home to the Lakeland Motor Museum and the Lakeside and Haverthwaite Railway, a 3.2-mile-long heritage railway where you can take a nostalgic trip between Haverthwaite Station and Lakeside Pier, or you can test your brain power at the Cliffhangerrooms, an award winning escape room.

Head north towards Lake Windermere to visit the National Trust Fell Foot Park, the aquarium, the historic Stott Park Bobbin Mill, or get in touch with nature as you take a scenic walk around Hay Bridge Nature Reserve.

A short drive in the opposite direction, you can head to the town of Ulverston where you will be spoilt for choice between traditional pub food with real ales or fine dining with a bottle of wine, and there is also plenty for the children with the Laurel and Hardy Museum, surrounding playgrounds and gardens, as well as just a little further to the South Lakes Safari Zoo.

Slightly further afield is an action packed day out at the beautiful Morecambe Bay with its famous stone jetty, historical clock tower, cycling path and trampoline park, or head to the north side of Lake Windermere to find plenty of picturesque walking routes setting off from the tourist town of Ambleside.

For a trip that everyone will remember, choose 20 Abbots Vue.
