The property

A stunning waterside 5 bedroom cottage (built circa 1645) sitting in its own mature grounds on the side of Urswick Tarn at the centre of the idyllic village of Great Urswick.

The cottage's large garden leads directly onto the Uswick Tarn, offering excellent fishing, kayaking and lots of space, perfect for large gatherings of friends and family.

Rest and recuperation are the themes of this enchanting cottage, with 5 bedrooms, one en-suite, with the rest having access to a well-appointed family bathroom, the cottage has lots of space, including a beautiful kitchen / seating area, separate living room, dining room, play room and conservatory.

All of the bedrooms offer character features and boast sublime comfort where a good night’s sleep guaranteed!

Challenge each other to board games in the play room, before retiring to the spacious sitting area to discuss upcoming adventures, rustle up a tasty meal in the well-equipped kitchen, and enjoy it in the bright and airy conservatory where you can view the expansive grounds and Urswick Tarn, in this quiet and peaceful location.

Within the village itself, there is an award-winning rustic pub just across the road, serving local beer and home-cooked food.

Just up the road is a children's adventure playground and lots of farmyard animals to see along the way, perfect for little ones!

A short bike-ride or five minute drive away is Cumbrian Cow Ice Cream, which is always a welcome treat on a sunny afternoon.

The area surrounding the cottage is a wonderful holiday base, with the market town of Ulverston just a few miles down the road, the cobbled streets host a varied range of independent boutiques, tea rooms, pubs and restaurants, why not catch a movie at the historic art deco Roxy Cinema.

Founded in 1937 the cinema shows all the most recent films, but still hosts an intermission in each film, selling ice cream and popcorn which is an experience in itself!

If you're a fan of Laurel & Hardy, be sure to visit the museum, or take a walk up to the Hoad Monument which overlooks all of Ulverston and the coast.

The coastline of the Furness Peninsula offers beaches, nature reserves and fantastic birdwatching.
