  • "We loved this cottage."

    Considering it was a last minute booking due to circumstances beyond our control we were completely satisfied with our accommodation. The cottage is fully equipped , the owner has thought of everything to make a comfortable stay. The kitchen had everything needed to cook a meal as we didn't want to eat out each evening. I was glad that cleaning products were there to use during our stay as this has always been an issue when staying away from home. The cottage is situated in a great locality near to a beautiful stretch of beach which is always what we look for in booking somewhere and having a pub within walking distance was a nice bonus plus some interesting places to visit. The gesture of welcome cookies and a card were thoughtful and lovely. We all enjoyed the break away and I would gladly recommend this property to others and we hope to come back in the near future. Thankyou :)

  • "We had a really lovely stay at the cottage."

    It was so welcoming and cosy and had everything we needed to feel at home. The location was great, close to the beach for the dog and within a few minutes drive of Ulverston and other Lake District areas. We will definitely visit again!

  • "I've previously shared this with the owner, with no response, but there is a significant indent in the bed."

    How this has not been brought to their attention before is unbelievable as it was obvious even visually. When staying in a cottage, as a minimum is cleanliness and a comfortable bed, so on this basis I wouldn't stay again.

  • "It's a great area with lots to explore without needing to drive into Lake District bottlenecks."

    Beautiful and unspoiled. The cottage is fresh and clean and has one of the best equipped kitchens we have met, and a shady rose garden when it's too hot to go out.

  • "A lovely cottage with lots of storage to enable you to keep the cottage tidy while fully unpacking."

    Lots of extra touches provided that are not listed on the website. (eg Hairdryer, washer). A good base for a walk to the beach and the pub 2 doors down seemed friendly without too much noise. The only negative was the request to strip the beds at the end of our stay, which I think would be difficult with a 9.30am leaving time. We would however not hesitate to return.

  • "Couple of issues which we left a note for the owner about."

    Positive -advertise you have a washing machine Negative - pub not dog friendly, which we know isn’t the owner of the cottage’s fault but was a deciding factor of booking a dog friendly cottage, next door but one from a pub during the Christmas/new year break.

    Fabulous walks & beaches to be found within walking distance of the cottage. Ulverston is a great place to visit & buy anything you need or relax in the many eateries. The cottage has been thoughtfully modernised to an extremely high standard with little heart shapes in the bespoke furniture! It's also got the most amazing walk in shower & delightfully comfortable beds. We liked the fact that we had the additional conservatory room to relax in too. Highly recommended!

    The decor and layout are clever, the shower and kitchen wonderful and the general quality of furnishings excellent. We have been coming to the Lake District for 25+years and this is the cottage that we think is the outstanding one we've stayed in. Bardsea is a great location for all of the Furness peninsula, and for much of the South Lakes. Windermere is about 25 minutes away, Coniston and Hawkhead nearer. The Ship Inn in the village is very welcoming. We spent most of our time walking from the village, either along the coast, over Birkrigg common or to Urswick. All the paths are well marked. Fortunately the weather was kind. We will return here again.
