  • "We had a fantastic stay, the building is beautiful and so well located, a hidden gem."

    Rowley house is so comfortable and stylish the owner was friendly and very helpful. The only thing it was short of is a large pan. We really enjoyed our stay and would recommend Rowley house to anyone visiting the area.

    Thank you for your feedback and I'm so happy you enjoyed your stay. We'll look into putting a larger pan in there, we have since put additional ovenware in the apartment to help with larger groups. Thanks again and we hope to see you again at Stone Cross Soon Mike and the team Property Owner

  • "The property was everything we expected and more."

    The kitchen was fully equipped and of a high quality throughout. The welcome pack was a nice touch too. Stone Cross Mansion is a unique place to stay and we hope to return one day. The restoration of the mansion was beautiful. We would highly recommend.

  • "Our apartment at Stone Cross Mansion in Ulverston was superb."

    We had a lovely week away in September with friends visiting some of the well known places in the Lakes. The facilities on site were really good & the restoration of such a beautiful building with smart modern interiors made it a great guest experience. Ulverston itself had plenty of places to eat out together with food stores for in house catering. As the apartment was also dog friendly, this made it an easy destination for us to choose. Hopefully, we will return again one day.

    House and grounds immaculate. All amenities a short walk away but the private grounds give you a sense of being away from it all.

  • "Excellent apartment."

    Clean and spacious. Well supplied with everything you may need. Lovely welcome hamper. Excellent facilities, including games, indoor and out and a full-size pool table. Walking distance to Local facilities, shops, restaurants etc. Had a power cut whilst we were there and Mike the Manager was excellent, providing clear information and help where necessary. We would highly recommend this apartment.

  • "Could do with a few more oven trays."

    Our stay was fantastic had an issue with a bedroom door but Mike made sure it was attended to very quickly. The additional garden furniture was great and made our stay more comfortable. Great apartment, in a fantastic setting.

  • "We cannot thank the owners enough for making our stay so wonderful and unforgettable for all the right reasons."

    The apartment was exactly as advertised, clean, well maintained with quality fixture, fittings and equipment. We chose the ground floor apartment as this would be easier for our disabled mother to access. The apartment is in a large victorian house with a lovely drive and is surrounded by landscaped gardens. The area is quiet but is just a few minutes walk into Ulverston and the local shops. We would definitely stay again and would recommend this apartment to anyone.

  • "We absolutely loved our stay at the Rowley Suite."

    On arrival we were pleasantly surprised to find the lounge area had a larger sofa than in the pictures as we were a little worried there wouldn’t be enough places to sit as we were a group of 5 adults, but the new sofa was perfect. Our stay was over the Christmas period, we took a lot of things with us to decorate the apartment, including a tree! The kitchen had everything we needed to cook our Christmas dinner perfectly. All in all it was a fantastic stay even though the weather was very wet. Mike was on hand for a minor issue we had with the heating and nothing seemed too much trouble. Would definitely recommend and we hope to be back at some point.

  • "Beautiful property and the Rowley Suite is spacious and light."

    Lovely grounds and easy access to the town. Friendly, attentive owners who attended very quickly to a small issue we had. Suggestions we have are: The provision of towel rails would be nice. A few of the facilities in the Rowley Suite which sleeps 6 are for just 4 people (outside seating, place mats at the dining table, comfortable seating in the living room area). We would definitely think of booking again

    Thank you for the feedabck and I'm glad you enjoyed your stay in the Rowley suite. I really appreciate your feedback on the towel rails and facilities for six, we have since added two additional chairs to the outdoor seating, extra mats and, as well as the hooks on the bathrooms doors, we have installed towel hooks above the radiators in each bathroom. Thanks again for your comments and we hope to see you again soon Mike and the team Property Owner

  • "This was a wonderful place to stay and we would recommend it to anyone."

    Gorgeous house, gorgeous setting. The facilities were brand new and top notch. Thank you to the property owner for the thoughtfully laid out and kitted out apartment. As for constructive criticisms, the wifi was a bit tricky and didn't work very well with our Apple tech (iPads and laptops) which caused us a bit of frustration. Maybe also advise guests to log out of tv apps Netflix and Amazon before they leave as failure to do so caused us some problems when we got first there when we tried to log in. We also wished there was more sofa space/bigger sofas as there was a bit of competition who would nab the spots on the sofa as the two chairs were not as comfy. But overall we really loved it; thank you!

    Thank you for taking the time to write this detailed feedback, We loved that you had an enjoyable stay. For the points mentioned, we really appreciate your feedback and I'm sorry there were some small issues throughout your stay. For the Wifi, we have since installed boosters in the apartment to help with the internet connection. For the Netflix/Amazon login, the tv's unfortunately don't automatically sign out of the login so we have to rely on guests logging out at the end of their stay as it can't always be monitored. We've asked this in the welcome pack but will look to put a how2 guide in there as well to help with this. Thank you for the comments on the seating in the living room. We have tried to make sure there is enough confortable seating for everyone staying in Rowley but we will look at ways we can utilise the space to add more seating if required. Thanks again Mike and the team Property Owner

    The small terrace was perfect for outdoor seating. The grounds of Stone Cross Mansion were spotless and the badminton nets on the lawn were great fun.
