  • "Perfect, has everything you need, spotless, the view beautiful."

  • "We had a wonderful week at Ada's cottage, beautiful views from the picnic bench outside."

    The bed was very comfy, the shower was brilliant. Met Roy who was lovely. The only negative thing about the cottage was that it was looking slightly tired in some areas & maybe ditch the false flowers upstairs that looked liked they'd had their day & were very dusty, but it wouldn't put us off going back again. So much to do in the area with the cottage being near to the coast as well, too much to see/visit in just one week, we will definately come back to this area/cottage again. We parked free on the front at Walney Island & biked to South Walney Nature Reserve, free to Wildlife members but still worth paying to go round. Visited Coniston & walked up to Tarn Hows, a lot to do up there too. Roanshead is 100% worth a visit, beautiful beach you can walk for miles along. We can also recommend the King's Arms, Hawcoat, Barrow in Furness, great real ale pub, best we visited in the area.

  • "A very comfortable cottage in a beautiful setting."

    Fantastic views towards the coast, quiet and secluded yet convenient for places of interest. Great having 2 bathrooms, 1 with bath, 1 with shower. Spotlessly clean.The owner very friendly, but never intrusive, and available if any problems, which there weren't. Only improvement would be that there were no instructions for the cooker, and the numbers on dials rubbed off, so couldn't tell which mode or temperature you were using, but we used the Internet to find instructions so no problem for us. We had a really lovely stay in this very beautiful area and have no hesitation in recommending . If going to this area we would definitely opt to stay there again.

  • "What can I say Ada’s cottage was a perfect cottage for our week."

    The views are beautiful and watching the animals in the fields around so peaceful and relaxing , fantastic wildlife. Roy the owner was very friendly even leaving a lovely voicemail for our arrival home as traffic was mayhem. A perfect place to stay while you explore the Lake District. The bed was so comfortable and the shower was amazing. Would definitely book again if we venture to the lakes . We definitely saw all we could . We didn’t want to leave this beautiful cottage. A short walk down through the fields to the ship ( pub) where your find a friendly welcome . The weather was perfect too . Can’t wait to return one day .keep up the good work Roy and Jennifer.

  • "A lovely comfortable cottage in a beautiful location."

    The views from the property were stunning. Roy the owner was very friendly and helpful. A little bit of extra crockery wouldn't go a miss but generally everything was excellent. Would definitely visit again. Gill

  • "Ada’s cottage is absolutely gorgeous place to stay."

    Amazing facilities (really comfy bed, big lounge area, place to sit outside, two bathrooms - one shower and one bath, so lots of options within the house) and the view was absolutely gorgeous, really easy to find, but private at the same time. Roy was extraordinarily lovely, really helpful and welcoming. Would 110% recommend! Definitely interested in going back as well, really close to so many locations aswell!

  • "We had a very enjoyable holiday in this cottage."

    Internally the cottage was comfortable and warm. All the facilities you could need. Plenty of seating upstairs extensive beautiful views from each window. Bedroom comfortable, shower excellent, nice touch of a t.v. would suggest a headboard on the bed would make watching it more comfortable. Out side appreciated the lovely spring flowers and the miniature stone houses that lit up at night, a nice surprise. Would certainly return here.

The property

Ada's Cottage dates back to 1645 and was originally a milk parlour and hayloft.

This was then converted to the perfect cottage to enjoy a great getaway.

The cottage is perfect for those who love the outdoors as well as enjoying views of Old Coniston over to Black Combe in the enviable location of Kirkby-in-Furness, Cumbria.

Accommodating a couple, this cottage comes with all you need to get around, hosting two off-road parking spaces and easy access to a local railway station.

After arriving at the property, soak up those views of the estuary and the mountains, before continuing inside to find a farmhouse-style kitchen/diner, a well-equipped space with an array of appliances, including a dishwasher and washing machine, making a self-catering stay a breeze!.

After dinner, make your way upstairs to the sitting room, where exposed beams and vaulted ceilings give the space a lovely charm throughout; there is ample seating, so you can easily grab a seat in front of the TV with Freeview or marvel at those elevated views of the countryside.

When sleep calls, return to the ground floor, where a king-size bedroom offers you another TV and access to an en-suite shower room.

Another bathroom can also be found close by, for added convenience.

Take advantage of the charming patio, which can be found to the front of the cottage, where you can enjoy an alfresco meal in the warmer months, surrounded by the lovely scenery.

Get to know your surroundings by embarking on a walk around the owner's fields or along the estuary, before stopping at The Ship Inn for a bite to eat or grab any essentials from the local supermarket to rustle up a homecooked meal for your partner.

Travel towards the Lake District National Park, stopping at the Duddon Mosses National Nature Reserve for a spot of birdwatching along the way, where the delightful market town of Broughton-in-Furness offers you access to the delights of the Swinside Stone Circle, Whitfell and the Furness Fells.

Spend some time in the South Lakes, where Ulverston offers a lovely day out, thanks to its stunning outdoor space of Ford Park, its intriguing Laurel and Hardy Museum, and access to the Cumbria Way.

Spend more time in the National Park, where the delights of Lakeside, Bowness-on-Windermere, Coniston and Ambleside are all within easy reach.

A charming stay for you and your loved one awaits at Ada's Cottage.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £150.

About the location


Broughton-in-Furness 5 miles; Ulverston 5 miles.

Kirkby-in-Furness is a collection of six hamlets on the Furness peninsula overlooking the Duddon estuary. The village is home to a general store and two pubs as well as a railway station on the Cumbrian Coast Line. Just five miles away is Broughton-in-Furness which has much to please the visitor such as a pretty, cobbled square complete with a splendid horse chestnut tree, enclosed by shops, pubs and homes. The village provides an ideal base for a walking or climbing holiday, with ample opportunity to explore the rugged beauty of the Duddon Valley and the quieter Lake District fells. East of Kirkby-in-Furness is the ancient market town of Ulverston which 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. All of the attractions of the National Park are easily reached and nearby family attractions include the World of Beatrix Potter, the Ravenglass and Eskdale Railway, the South Lakes Wild Animal Park and Muncaster Castle.
