    “This is a retired hotel, with a huge downstairs area which leaves you with a choice of where to sit and eat.”

    Immaculately clean with impressive conservatory and outside eating areas and well maintained. A great choice for a large party wanting to visit the Lake District.

This property has recently been converted into a large holiday home for all types of guests wishing to explore all the delights of the Cumbrian countryside.

Choose from a range of sitting rooms to unwind after a long day sightseeing and tune into the TV and watch some of your favourite shows as the open fire warms you.

There is a wonderful library room which holds a large number of books; take one and head into the snug where you can enjoy some quiet time.

There is a large kitchen which has everything you could possibly think of for your self-catering needs, and a large dining room to gather with your home-cooked meals and have a sociable evening together.

If you're looking for a quiet space with a view, then venture into the orangery, or take some time out in the games room where you can play a round of table tennis and browse through their selection of board games.

Choose from nine well-presented bedrooms, set up as either super-king-sizes (that can be made into twins), doubles or a queen size four poster bed, with all benefitting from their own en-suites.

About the location

DALTON-IN-FURNESS

Ulverston 5 miles.

The ancient town of Dalton-in-Furness lies in a narrow valley on that part of the Furness Peninsula which extends deep into Morecambe Bay. Once the leading town of Furness, Dalton has a good selection of shops, restaurants and pubs. The architecture of the town includes some interesting buildings in and around the market place, as well as an elegant Victorian drinking fountain, the market cross and slabs of stone used for fish drying in the 19th century. The 14th century pele tower, known as Dalton Castle, was originally a place of refuge for the monks of nearby Furness Abbey, an impressive sandstone ruin nestling in a peaceful wooded valley. Within easy reach of the town are the South Lakes Wild Animal Park, the world's only Laurel and Hardy museum at Ulverston and the Haventhwaite Steam Railway which runs to Lakeside, where you can board a steam train for Bowness or Ambleside. Just north of Dalton-in-Furness is the stunning Duddon Estuary and Duddon Valley, with Cartmel, Holker Hall and Grizedale Forest within easy reach. Situated on the edge of the Lake District National Park, and surrounded by mountains and beaches, this area is ideal for walkers, cyclists and nature lovers.
