    “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.

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.
