  • "Had lovely week at Number 39, very comfortable and great facilities."

    Enjoyed some lovely walks in and around the Ulverston area. The walk up to the Sir John Barrow monument is a must for the view alone. Lovely restaurants and great pubs in the town. The property is a credit to Jacqui & Emma.

  • "Outstanding property within walking distance of Ulverston town centre and railway station."

    Easy road links to Lake District attractions. House was very clean and well laid out. The kitchen was very well equipped (all the items that I took with us based on experience of other properties stayed unused in their bag). Very useful welcome package with everything required for breakfast on the first morning, plus the additional Halloween chocolates were a thoughtful addition. Parking is available on the street outside (we did struggle on our first night but to be fair we arrived around 9pm - every other day there was a space outside the front door) The house was wonderfully warm - perfect at this time of year. The lights were on when we arrived so we felt very welcome. The beds were very comfy and the shower was powerful. We would highly recommend Number 39 and would be more than happy to return. As I wrote in the guestbook - I feel like we have been spoilt for future rental properties following what we've experienced here!

    Another amazing stay in this beautiful cottage, perfect location, really can't find anything negative to say about this property, quite the reverse the owners have thought of every detail, provision and comfort and we would recommend this property to everyone thinking of staying in a central location in Ulverston

    The welcome pack was extremely generous and very much appreciated. The whole cottage was very cosy and clean and we particularly loved the bathroom. However, our favourite thing of all was the courtyard area out the back of the cottage where we were able to take advantage of the warm nights. Thank you so much - we will be back!

  • "With close relatives in the area, we frequently visit and stay in rented accommodation, most of which has been of a high standard."

    No. 39 was no exception, in fact it was one of those places to which we will definitely return. The place is decorated and furnished beautifully and Emma and Jacqui, who live next door, were great hosts who left us to get on with our visit but were readily at hand if required. They left us an unusually generous welcome pack. We’ll definitely be back next year but I’ll bet we have to book early!

  • "For work purposes, I need to make frequent visits to Ulverston and have had the opportunity to stay at various accommodations."

    I have to say that this is a very much a wonderful place for a number of reasons: the host is delightful, the home is very clean and comfortable, there are so many nice touches (a welcome basket of food goodies, fresh fruit, fresh flowers, etc.), the kitchen utensils are great (many places fail on this), and it is close to downtown. Super good accommodation! I hope to return!

    The owners very thoughtfully provided us with a welcome pac which was much appreciated after our walk up from the station . The house was warm and clean ,every modern convenience .
