  • “For a large group in the summer holidays this house was perfect.”

    Lots of games for the kids, pool table, table tennis, darts, hot tub, sauna and a bar for the adults. It was extremely clean, and every room had an en-suite. Very short drive to the village and to Booths to stock up the fridge. I would remember to pack hand soap, shower gel, shampoos etc as there isn’t any. The location isn’t as expected it’s not quite as rural as it appears you are next to a garden centre & near a main road but it’s quiet and lots of room for parking. we had awful weather for August but this meant we enjoyed the sauna & hot tub even more because of this. And the cosy log fire in the evening. Overall we had a lovely time and would definitely recommend this house for large groups & families.

The property

This three-storey detached country house, a former hotel is set in a most enviable position on the outskirts of Ulverston, in the spectacular Lake District.

Recently fully renovated in 2018 to a very high standard this is a great place for a large group of family and friends to get away from it all, enjoy the many delights of this unspoilt area and simply relax and unwind in this splendid holiday home.

Fully modernised throughout the owners have thought of everything in terms of the guest experience, from luxury bedrooms with all en-suite facilities, the fabulous bar and a whole range of amenities to enhance anyone’s stay at this premier holiday home.

With so many features to mention, here are but a few.

The main hallway leads through to a spacious lounge with feature fireplace, high ceiling with detailed coving.

The main bar area boasts a pool table, large screen TV and is a place to all get together to have a few cooling drinks from the wine coolers, open a few beers and create your own bar room atmosphere.

A large modern, open plan kitchen with wall mounted flat screen TV and a lovely seating area with cosy wood-burning stove, feature fireplace and patio doors provide another great place to sit and talk about your day and to prepare a family dinner.

The main dining area overlooks the mature garden area and also provides small secluded seating areas to get away from it all and catch up with an old friend or family member.

The ground floor leisure suite offers a great place to relax and unwind with a lovely seating area, space for exercise, yoga and pilates and a fabulous sauna to soak away the aches and pains.

Just outside the leisure room the property has a private patio area with hot tub.

A short ten-minute walk takes guests down into Ulverston.

A thriving maritime community developed when the Canal was constructed in 1796.

Ships from Ulverston exported copper, slate and linens around the World.

Today the town goes from strength to strength with ever increasing visitor numbers enjoying the many pubs with live music nights, the lovely eateries, the weekly market, the labyrinth of cobbled streets and of course the start of the seventy-mile Cumbrian Way.

The coastline of the Furness Peninsula offers great beach walks, horse riding and good birdwatching, while all the splendour of the Lake District National Park, from the sparkling waters of Windermere to the rugged peaks of Scafell Pike and the famous Langdales are just around the corner.
