  • "Absolutely stunning place to stay."

    Peaceful, welcoming and perfect for your four legged friend. We couldn’t have asked for anymore. Derek and Sue had prepared the best welcome pack we’ve ever had and such a lovely surprise after a long drive. The Annex was presented to the highest standards with a lovely enclosed garden for Bluebell. The skylights above the bed were perfect for stargazing too. We can’t wait to come back.

  • "The Annex was such a lovely place to stay, clean and with everything we needed."

    Very peaceful which is what we were aiming for with our anxious dog who loved it and the wonderful garden. The owners had kindly left us a welcome package of breakfast items which was such a lovely thing to find and very thoughtful! The big bed with a TV that rises out of the end was amazing and very relaxing! Highly recommend!

  • "In a word, fantastic!"

    The property is really nicely done out & cozy. The enclosed garden was a must for our dog. The welcome package included lots of goodies, which were very much appreciated. There’s a Coop around the corner if you need any bits & bobs. Lovely walks from the Annex, with Morecombe bay a mile down the road. Would go again

  • "Great modern Annexe."

    The bed was massive with a retractable tv at the end of it. Shower was excellent. Kitchen was good, just couldn’t find a fault. There was a bottle of red waiting for us when we got there and breakfast in the fridge plus bread and milk, fantastic hosting. We did the hill walk up to the monument then on the way back a great pub crawl around Ulverston. There was a charging point for my electric car that was free yes free. Can’t wait to visit again in the summer.

  • "The Annex is a lovely modern holiday let."

    Very comfortable TV bed. An amazing welcome pack on arrival. Everything you would need for self catering. Private secure garden for dogs. Lovely walks around the property leading to the beach. The owners are very welcoming and have all the information you would need and more. The temple down the road has a lovely cafe under cover. A great base to visit the beautiful surrounding lakes. We would definitely recommend staying here. Pamela & Dave

    Derek and Sue the owners were wonderful, even invited us round for a BBQ where our dog Beau made herself right at home. Beautiful walks from the door, this is a perfect location for travelling to Windermere and Buttermere was amazing a must to visit. Very sad to be back at home.

  • "A Gem of a Place!"

    The Annexe is a beautiful haven. Very friendly and welcoming owners who go above and beyond to make your stay as comfortable as possible. Fantastic welcome pack, one of the best we have ever had - thank you! Whether you want to go walking, sightseeing or just R&R (like we did) - the Annexe has it all. Lovely walks to the beach and a visit to Conishead Priory is a must. We were very lucky with the weather and sat out in the garden every day - the garden is very private and is surrounded by beautiful views, wildlife and cows who come to say hello! The week went so quickly and we didn't want to leave - but we will be going back for sure. Thank you Susan and Derek for a fabulous week and for sharing your haven with us. Gerry & Graham

  • "Wow! Absolutely amazing, from stepping through the door to leaving for home the best holiday experience ever."

    5 star hotels don't go to the lengths that Derek and Susan go to. The accommodation was modern, well equipped and sparkling clean, the welcome pack was a very pleasant surprise, the bed was so big and comfy I didn't want to get up in the morning, and the built in TV in the bottom of the bed was awesome. The hosts could not do enough for us, in fact Sue cooked chicken for our pooch as she was a bit out of sorts. Would I recommend The Annex? In a heartbeat I would, and you have all the Lake District and beyond to explore. Great holiday, big thanks Susan & Derek. Mick & Sue

    Very clean, comfortable and well equipped with a quiet location and lovely views over farmland. The Annex is of very high standard and deserves 5 stars. We would recommend the local pub for a meal and the local fish and chip shop, both in walking distance. Derek and Sue are fantastic hosts and really want you to have the best stay. We were greeted with cold drinks, a breakfast pack and a very warm welcome.

Resting in an idyllic countryside location on the edge of the traditional market town of Ulverston lies this splendid, detached annex.

Well-equipped and set over two floors, The Annex is a quaint hideaway for a couple looking to holiday to Cumbria and the Lake District.

Unload your baggage from the car before discovering the light and airy open-plan living area, home to a plush sofa so you can enjoy a cosy night in front of the Smart TV.

Move back inside and head upstairs to the neatly presented bedroom, home to a sumptuous king-size bed and an integrated Smart TV into the bed frame, perfect for continuing your favourite shows in bed.

When you’re ready to explore, head into the town centre of Ulverston and be greeted by charming cobbled streets housing independent shops, inviting cafés and traditional pubs, as well as a range of eateries where you can celebrate any occasion.

Depending when you visit, you might catch the Christmas Dickensian Fair and the traditional flag festival and a lantern procession when the whole town turns out for a colourful evening of fun and music!

The location of The Annex is superb; within a 30-minute drive you have access to the scenic Lake District, including the wonderful Lake Windermere and the many quaint towns and villages surrounding it, plus the beautiful coastal area of Morecambe Bay where a wealth of walks and wildlife can be enjoyed, especially on a bright day when the views are inspiring.
