“Absolutely Wonderful Experience - Highly Recommended”Words cannot describe just how perfect "The Oaklands" is. Stayed there in June, 2012 with family members (some of us from Canada and England). My cousin in England made the arrangements for the rental. The cottage had absolutely everything you needed, just a short walk into the Town of Ulverston to pick-up groceries. Each room was beautifully decorated and very comfortable - could have stayed there longer. The owners have put thought into every detail of each room. Plenty to keep you ...Words cannot describe just how perfect "The Oaklands" is. Stayed there in June, 2012 with family members (some of us from Canada and England).

Each room was beautifully decorated and very comfortable - could have stayed there longer. The owners have put thought into every detail of each room. Plenty to keep you occupied despite the weather. The view from the cottage was spectacular - couldn't get enough especially from the Sun Room (my favourite room). Definitely want to go back there again one day and bring our friends - once we master the driving in the UK or figure out another mode of transportation to help us get there. Thank you so much for such a wonderful experience. Sure wish we owned this place. J&S; Nethercott, Dorchester, Ontario, Canada
