  • "We stayed at Stone Cross Mansion for seven nights."

    Children loved it for their activities both in door and outdoor. It’s very well maintained and managed property with highly rich history, located at the prime area of Ulverstone. We loved it and would recommend without any hesitation.

  • "As soon as we pulled up we were impressed by the outside and grounds."

    On entering the William Suite we were excited to discover the exceptional standards of all aspects of the apartment. We especially enjoyed the decked area where I was able to photograph the northern lights. The bed was one of the most comfortable we have encountered and we have visited many places fir comparison. We are not normally keen to revisit places we have already stayed but we think this may be the exception to that rule!

  • "The Stone Cross Mansion building is impressive and exceptionally well renovated."

    The flat itself was also nicely presented and the view from the roof terrace is stunning. There were a couple of small problems when we arrived - a bed not made up as a double as requested and a mess left in the oven by previous occupants. Both these were dealt with quickly and courteously. The flat was clean and had most things necessary for our stay, but there were some problems. Although the bed was comfortable there was a continuous humming noise from the boiler cupboard which I found disturbing at night. The coffee maker didn’t work and I suspect the capsules that were left were not the correct size for the machine. The sash windows were very stiff and it was a struggle to open and close them. The biggest problem we had was complete lack of Wi-Fi signal in the lounge. The television didn’t pick up any signal, so we were unable to access anything except real time terrestrial programmes and there was very little to watch. No Freeview, so no i player or itv hub; no Netflix, no Amazon Prime. We brought the problem to the attention of the owners during our stay but no solution was found. This really needs to be addressed. The flats are not cheaply priced and finding that the facilities that are advertised are not in fact available is disappointing. On balance I would say that if you are fit and strong enough to deal with the windows and keen to transport food up two flights of steep stairs to the dining table on the roof terrace, then this flat is for you. But if you want to sit and watch television in the evenings then it probably isn’t. I wouldn’t book this particular flat again, but I might consider one in the same building if the problem with the Wi-Fi is resolved.

    Thank you for your detailed feedback on your stay at Stone Cross Mansion, It sounds like there were a few things wrong with your stay which I'm sorry to hear about. For the main issue you had with the Wifi in the lounge. As you can imagine the walls and floors are incredibly thick especially in the turret. We are constantly trying to get cover to all dead zones and have now hardwired the television which will stop any issues with the connection going forward. We have also installed a repeater to help boost the guest Wifi in the 2nd floor lounge. Thanks again for your feedback and we hope to see you again. Mike and the team Property Owner

  • "We’ve just come back from our 1week stay in Cumbria."

    Our first impression of the Stone Cross Mansion building itself was really impressive. The apartment did not disappoint either. It was well maintained, very clean and the terrace was an amazing bonus. My youngest loved going up there and gazing up at the sky and just embracing the beauty of the place. The apartment had been arrange with family in mind- very well thought of. There’s a small game room for the kids with toys available to use. The place is very close to the shops and major tourist attractions. We would highly recommend this place. It’s a week long break well spent.

    Thank you for your lovely feedback, We are so glad you and your family enjoyed your stay in the William suite and we hope to see you again soon Mike and the team Property Owner

  • "Stone Cross is absolutely spectacular."

    The renovation is remarkable and sensitive. The design inspiration is perfection and as a result the spaces perfectly reflect the ambience of the historic building whilst incorporating every modern feature. You cannot fail to be impressed, as I am, with the luxe vibe and thoughtfulness of the accommodation. The William Suite is truly unique and we enjoyed spending time on our turret-top roof garden with spectacular views.

    Thank you for your lovely feedback on the william suite. It means so much Mike and the team Property Owner
