  • "A nicely appointed cottage as advertised."

    Owner very helpful and on hand to deal with queries.

  • "Cottage looks very drab from the outside."

    However we found it to be very comfortable and cosy. It is despite its looks very large inside. Well positioned for trips to the lakes without being amounts the busy towns. Great stay thank you

  • "Well located for visiting the areas around the southern lakes."

    The amenities in the cottage and furnishings are basic and in need of some TLC. Substantial renovations are being carried out next door which can make it noisy from 08.00 in the morning during the week. There is a nice walk from the cottage into Ulverston which is helpfully indicated.

  • "Great location, lovely neighbours who were happy to tell us about the history of this cottage and the local area."

    Easy parking for 2 cars, and we even fitted in 3! Cottage had everything we needed.

  • "The listing really wasn’t accurate."

    This immaculate cottage was not that and we felt it was in need of some tlc. The window to the second bedroom could see daylight between the wood. Carpet ripped at the entrance to third bedroom (trip hazard at top of stairs). Main bedroom bed wasn’t great. Lots of noise from neighbours and people on the floor above. Garden was not enclosed. Kitchen not overly well equipped. Location listed wasn’t even accurate said 100 yards from lotus restaurant and it was nearly 2 miles away!!

    We are sorry you did not like this quirky, grade II listed, terraced cottage, and that you were disturbed by neighbours. A carpet thread had pulled at the doorway of bedroom 3 and this has been dealt with. We make no mention of nearby restaurants, Furnace Cottage is situated in a small hamlet one mile outside of Ulverston. Property Owner

  • "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 Man.

  • "We had a lovely time - really nice cottage, great location, friendly hosts, the builders next door didn’t bother us at all."

    There was a communications problem about the fact we wanted one of the double beds to be two singles (our message didn’t reach the hosts in advance vi booking.com) and there was no way for them to provide us extra single bed sheets. However this didn’t spoil our holiday and we appreciated the apology over voicemail. COVID precautions were very good. We found that there wasn’t any sugar, or kitchen rolls or spare toilet rolls, which we would have expected. All in all though, very happy with our stay.

    It was unusual with lots of character. We liked the location as it was easy to get around. The cottage a had a great selection of books which was much appreciated.

  • "We were a group of five ladies doing the start of the Cumbrian Coastal Way and the location of the cottage was ideal for us and the fact that it had five separate beds was a winner!"

    Although there were perfect cooking facilities in the cottage we only ate breakfast and made packed lunches which was great for us. The pubs and eating places in Ulverston were excellent especially The Stan Laurel and The Rose and Crown. We got as far as Green Road Station near Millom and decided to call it a day because of the wet weather. Drying facilities in the cottage were excellent.

  • "Really happy with the property, it was beyond expectations."

    Really good size rooms and layout, very clean and tidy, great facilities all wrapped up in a very nice country cottage. The parking was off the street in its own drive which could accommodate up to 4 cars. I would definitely rent this property again.

  • "The cottage was stunning, very comfortable and welcoming, it had everything you could possibly need and was in a great location for pottering about the South Lakes."

    Lovely little touches, such as tea, coffee and milk upon our arrival. The log fire /burner was beautiful on a cold night and the drying / utility room was particularly helpful. Don't forget to check out the secret garden and also take a walk around the corner to the left as there is a little history plaque about the cottage. We also walked up to John Barrow Monument which has stunning views for miles. Would definitely go back to this beautiful cottage. Thank you, Sue Tickle
