Holiday in a Ulverston bed & breakfast for quaint history

Ulverston is a charming market town in Cumbria that lies north of Blackpool across Morecambe Bay. Here you can walk down cobblestone streets to see vintage houses and shops, or you might visit the Laurel and Hardy Museum that displays photographs and letters from the famous comedy duo and houses a cinema that shows their movies. You can also climb to the top of Hoad Monument, which features a design similar to that of the iconic Eddystone Lighthouse, for a panoramic view of the town and nearby Druid's Circle. Many Ulverston and Blackpool B&Bs feature rooms with their own bathrooms so guests can shower in privacy.
