The property

Ulverston 1 mile.

This immaculate terraced cottage, formerly the worker’s cottage for the neighbouring ancient iron furnace, is located in the hamlet of Newland, under a mile away from the colourful market town of Ulverston.

The cottage has been lovingly 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 and the owner has even planted a herb garden for guests to enjoy.

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, and tucked away in one corner is a “secret” courtyard, cut out from the neighbouring rock and adjoining part of the 18th century furnace.

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.

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.

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.
