    “We tend to do our research before deciding on somewhere to holiday.”

    Furnace Cottage had everything we needed, well equipped, great location and with walking / cycling on our doorstep. Drying room excellent but not really needed, thankfully. Very cosy so log fire used just a couple of nights. WiFi good enough to stream on several devices and for our student son to attend uni lectures remotely before we headed out to enjoy the lakes and local attractions. For any cyclists, local hill climb at Knottallow Tarn offers stunning views of Morecambe Bay and Coniston Old ...

The property

Ulverston 1 mile.

This immaculate grade II listed terraced cottage, formerly a workers cottage for the neighbouring ancient iron furnace, is located in the conservation hamlet of Newland, under a mile away from the colourful market town of Ulverston.

The cottage has been lovingly restored and furnished to create a cosy and welcoming feel with stylish features and excellent facilities, ideal for a family or a group of friends wishing to explore this lovely part of the country.

This delightful cottage has a lovely sitting room with a cosy woodburning stove and French windows opening out onto a sunny patio area.

The spacious kitchen with dining area is a convivial place to prepare delicious meals.

Upstairs are three bedrooms, one with an en-suite shower room and a family bathroom.

There is also a utility/drying room on the ground floor with a dehumidifier, a great place to keep your walking clothes dry.

Outside this superb cottage is a spacious gravel area with raised beds and patio where you can sit and relax.

Lovely walks can be found from the property, plus the popular market town of Ulverston is under a mile away and has a host of colourful restaurants and interesting shops with a bustling market hall, Ulverston is also the start of the Cumbrian Way.

The Coronation Hall offers an interesting mix of events and the town hosts a number of festivals throughout the year.

The town also has a mile-long canal, the Laurel & Hardy Museum (Stan Laurel was born in Ulverston) and indoor and outdoor markets.

Travel further afield and explore the Furness Peninsula, where you will find a fabulous semi-ruined abbey, an exciting wild animal park, and many miles of coastline, ideal for kiteboarding, windsurfing and sailing.

Whenever you choose to stay in this super cottage, you will always find a delightful walk, a perfect tea room, a refreshing pint of local ale and of course, the breathtaking beauty of the Lake District.

About the location

NEWLAND

Ulverston 1 mile; Lake Windermere 9 miles; Coniston Lake 9 miles.

The small hamlet of Newland, on the edge of the Lake District National Park, sits on a hillside, overlooking rural countryside and the beautiful South Cumbrian coastline, just a mile from the historic market town of Ulverston with its cobbled streets and weekly markets. Newlands Beck trickles its way past the hamlet, and lovely walks can be found along Cumbrian Way and the nearby sands and coast. Many festivals are held each year in the town which also boasts a Laurel & Hardy Museum, as well as a wide range of restaurants, a cinema, pubs and a leisure centre. Local attractions include the Haverthwaite Steam Railway, leading to the Lakes cruises, the South Lakeland Wild Animal Park, Holker Hall, Grizedale Forest and the Aquarium of the Lakes, while the South Lakeland National Park is easily accessible.
