  • "We really enjoyed our stay however you are staying in the attic space of this ..."

    We really enjoyed our stay however you are staying in the attic space of this big house with the owners below as they live there - very steep stairs and a slippy wooden staircase to a first floor kitchen - not clear in the information

  • "Lovely property, in a lovely situation."

    Improved instructions for use of Sky tv would improve experience when the weather is poor. Maybe a dish washer too, as 6 people do generate sufficient cutlery etc. Additional coat hook to hang dressing gown while having a shower.

  • "Amazing place."

    We really loved it! The location is wonderful and the nearby estuary beach is utterly amazing with fossils and fantastic sand. The only thing we would have loved is a dishwasher rather than a washing machine, but otherwise a brilliant stay!

    It’s very well appointed with large comfortable bedrooms, a cozy lounge and a kitchen that has everything you need. Outside is really nice garden. We hope to return for another stay.

  • "Lovely hosts, very welcoming."

    I think that the description could make it clearer that you are staying in the upper part of the house with the owners leaving below. The location of the house is fantastic though and you had everything you needed to cook a meal etc. Overall, an enjoyable stay.

  • "The Muirland Heights accommodation was as described on the website, it was clean throughout and had everything we needed for a great stay (3 days), very peaceful and easily accessible by car."

    Slight hick-up on arrival as there was no key left in the lock box, this was soon rectified by the host who was very apologetic and furnished us with some local knowledge of local amenities, places to visit/eat etc. Nice surprise arrival gift of bottle of red wine and some very nice biscuits which went down a treat!

Built in 1890 by the railway engineer William Rothery, this enticing dwelling offers easy access to the Lake District, as well as all of the excitement of the coast, making it an extremely desirable destination for your retreat with friends or family at any time of year.

Head up the wooden staircase and to your private balcony with South-Westerly sea views.

Across from here you will be welcomed into the kitchen/diner.

Gather together at the table whilst toasting to a wonderful trip and creating a plan of action for the rest of your fun-filled days ahead.

Venture up the steep staircase and into the peasant's quarters of the property on the first floor, where you can find an inviting sitting room boasting more excellent views over the private gardens.

Cosy up in front of the electric stove, or wind down with your favourite shows, you wil find this to be the perfect place to enjoy your evenings with a rewarding beverage in hand.

Also on the first floor is a snug, where you can settle down with a good book or keep the little ones entertained with a selection of books and board games; it makes the perfect hideout.

At the end of an exciting day seek comfort in one of the three bedrooms, choosing from two super-king-size bedrooms both with zip/link features and being twin rooms upon request, as well as their own chaise lounges for relaxing on in style, plus a further twin room also boasting traditional charm and a snug spot to rest your head.

Spend your mornings out on the balcony soaking in the sun before heading out with your canine companion to explore your dedicated, private side garden and shared grounds.

Head into the local village to find a shop providing all the essentials alongside two delicious pubs to choose from for an afternoon snack, before jumping on the train and venturing into Ulverston where you can find a wide selection of wonderful amenities including the only Laurel and Hardy museum in the world, alongside a golf club, the South Lakes Zoo Safari and plenty more eateries to indulge in.

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.
