  • "We had a wonderful week's stay at the Alfred Suite."

    The apartment itself is spacious, comfortable, and very well appointed. The grand lobby immaculately presented and stunning. There are a range of amenities on the doorstep, with the town a short stroll away for restaurants, pubs, etc, and an M&S Food and Aldi at the bottom of the driveway. Access to the Lakes is also convenient for activities and the main tourist attractions.

  • "The Mansion is absolutely stunning and the apartment was very spacious and thoughtfully styled."

    The kitchen was great for us to cook in and we really enjoyed the open plan style. Ulverston is a great base to explore the lakes. Whilst its not centrally in the lakes; the accommodation was some of the most luxurious we have stayed in and very conveniently there were two supermarkets at the end of our road and the town was 5 minute walk. It should be highlighted in the welcome book that the shortcut to town is left out the house and then through the gate in the wall at the end of the cul de sac. Also be warned, the showers are extremely powerful. Not necessarily a bad thing but they take you by surprise!

  • "Absolutely thrilled with the accommodation."

    Far better than expected from the description online. Beautifully maintained, beautifully appointed and a real must have for anybody considering a Lake District holiday and using Ulverston as a base. Thank you all.

  • "Fabulous place, the building itself is incredibly impressive and the level of detail and comfort available in the apartments is 5 star, there is nothing they haven't thought of."

    5 minute walk into town but make sure you ask about the short cut through the gate to your left as you leave the building or you will end up walking the long way down the drive like we did for first three days lol!

  • "We had a wonderful week at Stonecross."

    The property is fantastic with lots of space and character. We loved the high specification throughout including the kitchen appliances and the quality of the restoration. The location was great and there’s lots of amenities nearby, with only a 10 min walk into town where’s there’s plenty of choice to eat and drink. We’ll definitely be back soon.
