    In a lovely village,about 10 minutes drive from the coast,and near to Ulverston ,a nice little town . The house would sleep 10 easily . It has a great sized lounge ,and a big dining area. The kitchen was very well stocked with cutlery,plates cups etc..The beds were comfy It is not an ultra modern house,its cosy and comfortable. The only problem we had was the recycling bins were full when we arrived. and no rubbish bins . I spoke with the owner and was advised to leave all the rubbish and they would deal with it We would definitely book again, we had a fabulous break at Crown House

The property

Ulverston 3.7 miles.

A truly spectacular property resting in a picturesque village with plenty of adventure within easy reach, Crown House is the perfect place to create everlasting memories with your loved ones at any time of year.

Sitting within the village of Gleaston near to the idyllic market town of Ulverston, this Cumbrian cottage with its previous life as a pub is an exceptional base, to explore both the mountains of the Lake District and the Cumbrian coast.

Step into the long hallway and kick off your shoes before entering into the snug where a woodburning stove awaits you to warm up the room, equipped with a Smart TV and a sofa bed, this is a true treasure for those looking for a quiet escape away from the excitement of the group.

Gather all together within the sitting room, the pub's impressive open fire taking centre stage, here you can unwind each evening before carrying conversations through to the dining room to indulge in a delicious home-cooked meal.

The kitchen is of equal delight, with a breakfast table at the centre making a great space to enjoy a hearty full English breakfast ahead of a day of exploration, you'll be sure to find every utensil and appliance you could possibly need here.

At the end of each day seek comfort in one of the four double bedrooms; on the first floor rests a double with its own en-suite shower room and two further doubles, the fourth, a final double, sits peacefully on the second floor and also includes an en-suite bathroom.

Each room boasting an elegant and homely aura to rest each evening.

Spend your time in the garden in the summer months, with plenty of space for everyone to gather around the fire with the multi-level garden and pond giving it an extra special element.

Within the village itself is Gleaston Castle a medieval fortification built in the 14th Century as well as a 16th century water mill, why not stop here for excellent homemade food at Dusty Millar's cafe?

Just down the road is a children's adventure playground and village green where you can play 'Poo Sticks' on the stream, orsports on the field, with lots of farmyard animals to see along the way, perfect for little ones!

With the stunning Lake District National Park within 30 minutes’ drive, and the beautiful coastal area overlooking Morecambe Bay within 5 minutes’ drive, this superb location has a huge variety of walks and cycles available.

The market town of Ulverston is a colourful destination with a regular calendar of festivals – from beer and music to flag and lantern processions, enjoy a saunter down the cobbled streets window shopping from a varied range of independent boutiques, tea rooms, pubs and restaurants.

Some highlights include Gillams an independent family run tea rooms since 1895 with one of the largest ranges of tea in the country, while the Chippy Bank is a local institution for traditional fish and chips, on the way home, why not treat yourself to homemade ice-cream at Cumbrian Cow, which is always a welcome treat on a sunny afternoon.

Spend a family-fun day at the South Lakes Safari Zoo, home to over 1000 of the rarest animals with opportunities to walk amongst them, while two hidden medieval gems lie only a few miles away, the impressive gothic ruins of Furness Abbey, once the second richest monastery in the country and their huge castle on Piel Island, accessible by ferry and where eccentrically the pub landlord Steve is also the island’s official king.

There’s also some spectacular beaches nearby, Sandscale Haws National Nature Reserve is a rare place to spot Natterjack toads and the impressive sand dunes and golden sands look out onto the dominating mountains of the Lake District, the nearby Bardsea beach was recently featured in the Sunday Times as one of Britain’s best secret beaches and comes complete with sand, sea, rare salt march, ancient woodland, a stone circle and Roy’s ice cream van, another loacal institution.

There really is no excuse not to get out and enjoy this diverse corner of Cumbria.

Crown House is a true spectacle of a holiday home for your escape to Cumbria.
