  • “I think this was a lovely place to stay and would have been perfect if not for the rain.”

    Cant really blame the cottage for it being a very wet week, but the conservatory roof (which in sunnier circumstances would be wonderful) did make for it being rather noisy and keeping us awake! That aside it was very comfortable and reasonably well equipped in terms of kitchen equipment (many holiday homes are remarkably bad)! ...

    Cant really blame the cottage for it being a very wet week, but the conservatory roof (which in sunnier circumstances would be wonderful) did make for it being rather noisy and keeping us awake! That aside it was very comfortable and reasonably well equipped in terms of kitchen equipment (many holiday homes are remarkably bad)! The cottage is very close to the center of Ulverston which has pretty good public transport links around the southern lakes making this a good base from which to explore the southern lake district. Ulverston itself is a attractive little market town with pretty much all the facilities you will want; a few independent shops, supermarket, some decent restaurants. At the same time it is much quieter than the rather more obvious base of Windemere.
