The living accommodation exudes quality and style with a well-equipped kitchen with dining area and a sitting room with an open fire, plus a sunny conservatory.

An additional sitting room on the first floor, complete with Juliet balcony, is perfect for enjoying the fine sunsets over Morecambe Bay of an evening.

Outside this detached cottage are ample lawned areas, as well as a terrace, patio and a luxurious hot tub, perfect for relaxing in after a long day exploring the area.

Situated so close to the coast, this Furness Peninsula cottage provides wonderful opportunities to walk along the shore and admire the abundance of wildlife and the beautiful scenery that abounds here.

With the market town of Ulverston, famous for its Dickensian and flag festivals, only a short drive away, and the South Lakes Wild Animal Park close by, it's a great destination for a family day out.

The Grizedale Visitor Centre near Hawkshead has some marvellous mountain biking routes and a host of walks through the forest, as well as a tree-top adventure course.

After exploring all day, you can return to this immaculate Furness Peninsula cottage for a well-earned soak in the hot tub.

About the location


Ulverston 5 miles.

On the coast looking across to Morecambe Bay is the small village of Aldingham, said to have once been a mile long but, as legend says, many of the early cottages were washed away by storms and tidal waves. Aldingham had the reputation of being a smugglers’ village, with brandy from France and tobacco from America supposedly hidden in the church crypt. The village is close to the spectacular Furness Abbey, and the ancient market town of Ulverston is just 5 miles away, and still has an authentic feel and community spirit. The town boasts a street market every Thursday and Saturday and many festivals throughout the year, including an amazing lantern procession in September and a superb Dickensian weekend on the last weekend of November. It is also the birthplace of Stan Laurel and home to the only Laurel and Hardy museum in the world! With all the attractions of the Lake District National Park and the sandy beaches and good birdwatching of the Furness coast close by, this quiet and peaceful area has plenty to offer!
