  • "Really nice place Clean well maintained and a very relaxing stay"

    Reviewed by Ian5.0Feb 2024

  • "A lovely property and we had a wonderful time."

    Fantastic walks from the door, up to Hoad Monument and a perfect location to explore the lakes, such as Windermere and Coniston. The local Motor Museum is very dog friendly as are most places it seems. We loved cwtching up in front of the fire of an evening, as did Otis & Offa the dogs. Would highly recommend.

    Thank you Gerry and Colleen

  • "Had an amazing few days at the Coach House, wish we had stayed longer, will defiantly return."

    The property was beautifully looked after throughout and is really comfortable - the log burner was a favourite of ours - also liked the amount of TV channels on offer which you don’t normally expect. Honestly can’t think of anything they’ve left out. The owners couldn’t do enough for us, (“help yourself to logs” was a nice touch) and found the perfect balance of being neighbourly and letting us relax. Also worth noting that they have listened to reviews and acted on them (there is now a hairdryer and stool for cupboard) just to show how much they care about the home. Ulverston itself was perfect - recommend the Mill pub - but it’s the property we would happily return too - if only for our dog to say hello to the sheep each morning which he loved.

    To improve comfort rating to top marks would suggest a couple of foot-stools for the armchairs as they are quite deep. Super stay.

  • "Bank Hurst Coach House is unique and stunning accommodation set in a lovely peaceful quiet area just outside Ulverston."

    The outside beautiful stone walls are contrasted with modern aluminium windows, with glass balastrades and huge oak beams in the airy vaulted open plan living room. The kitchen is a great size with everything you need (ps the cutlery drawer is somewhat hidden inside the top pullout drawer to the left of the oven!). The ensuite is huge with a massive walk in shower with a monsoon shower head (note, there was no hairdryer which I thought was unusual). We were blessed with sunny warm weather so we only used the log burner once, but it really is a spectacular special feature. The Lakes are a 30 min drive away, so be prepared to drive a bit further in/out each day. However, being down on the Ulverston peninsula meant we were closer to the beaches (highly recommend Haverigg Beach). Our cockerpoo Harley had the best time ever and she learnt to swim in Ennerdale Lake. We had such an amazing wonderful week and we were so sad to leave. Unfortunately the owners whose own house is nearby were away so we never got to meet them. But if they read this review, thankyou thankyou thankyou

    Lovely location and very well maintained we loved our stay only down side was there was no cutlery we had to buy our own but apart from that definitely

    Really sorry that you could not find the cutlery drawer. It is a pull out drawer located within the top drawer to the left of the cooker, just under the countertop. Property Owner

  • "Perfect stay!"

    The location was amazing and the coach house was the perfect mixture of modern and country. The open fire we had burning every night and heated the place up quickly, which was lovely for these frosty nights! We went to the Farmers Arms for a lovely pub meal and the Rose and Crown was lovely too. We also ordered from the Rainbow Chinese which was phenomenal - would highly recommend! We made a few meals in the coach house and it had every utensil we needed. The only 2 things I would change if I could would be a bath and a bigger couch - but I’m a sucker for a tub and a huge cuddle couch

    Stayed for two nights (28th and 29th July) and could easily have stayed longer. There were no negatives whatsoever. Everything was to a very high standard and quality. It had everything you need for your stay and also for our two doggies who also loved it. The view from the double patio doors was breathtaking. The owners live next door but were not intrusive at all however they were there if you needed any advice on anything. I have already recommended it to a couple of friends and family. We will definitely be going back. Joanne

    The property is perfectly situated in a quiet pastoral setting just outside the market town of Ulverston. It is an impressive newly-converted barn with an open floor plan, modern in every way, very comfortable, and extremely well equipped. Sadly I was there for only a few days but could have remained there indefinitely.
