    Ulverston centre was a short walk and the property was well placed for access to lots of other great places to visit. The shared garden was a bit of an issue for us. There was no outdoor seating as pictured which was a shame with the weather being so nice. However with others using the garden, hanging their washing out and dogs in the garden area (which wasn’t very big) didn’t really feel comfortable sat there. There was also dog faeces on the grass. We managed to park but it would be a struggle if you had a large vehicle. The cottage also faced the main road. The main bedroom was at the front so there was a bit of traffic noise. But, some nice features in the property, very comfy and large bed, smart tv and location was great.

    Thank you for your feedback. Garden furniture is stored in the shed in the garden. This is explained in the property information brochure along with the code for the padlock. Apologies about our neighbours washing but it is a shared garden as explained in the Sykes listing so there is not much we can do about it. I have spoken to the owner of the dog about the faeces in the garden and he tells me he is moving house at the end of the month so there will be no further problem. Sorry to hear that you were bothered by some road noise in the bedroom. We have instructed a contractor to visit this week to measure up for secondary glazing to remove any future road noise problem. Parking outside properties in Ulverston is virtually impossible. We do provide off road parking outside the property but you are right it could be a struggle if guests have a large car. However, parking is available within a 2-3 minute walk of the property. - Sykes owner relations

The property

Sitting at the centre of the quaint market town of Ulverston is this pretty, whitewashed abode, Burlington Cottage.

Sitting on a peaceful street just a short stroll from the centre of the action, this property makes a wonderful holiday home for a couple or family of four looking to escape to the countryside of Cumbria.

Enter through the front door and into the sitting area of the open-plan living space, a pleasing electric fire inviting you to snuggle up on the ample seating arrangement and flick on the Smart TV for a relaxing evening with your loved ones.

Moving to the rear of this contemporary-styled room you can find the amply-equipped kitchen, hosting plenty of preparation space, a good range of appliances and utensils and a lovely dining table where the whole group can gather to enjoy a home-cooked meal, this room boasts a wonderful social aspect for your family escape.

Also on the ground floor rests a convenient bathroom, perfectly placed to enjoy a relaxing soak in the tub after a day of rambling in the Lake District National Park, while up the stairs you can also find a cloakroom, offering plenty of space for everyone to get read each morning.

Also on the first floor rest the two bedrooms, a super-king-size and a twin with two 2'6" single beds, providing a lovely layout for families of four, both rooms offering crisp white linens to snuggle up under each evening and ample storage space for your personal belongings too!

Be sure to make the most of the coffee machine each morning by taking a cup out to the rear shared garden, a real sun trap to begin each day in an idyllic setting before heading out on your adventures.

A car is not a requirement at the Burlington Cottage due to closeness of all facilities, train and bus links to the lakes, Cartmel races and the west coast.
