Not only were David and Nick an absolute joy, we found Riverbank to be such a treat. It has beautiful views, lovely décor, a wonderfully stocked kitchen including a nice size refrigerator and freezer, super comfy bed, plenty of storage, a dedicated parking space, and so much more… To top that off, you can walk right out the front door for a day in town, a little low level walk or an all-day Fell/Wainwright walk. We would highly recommend lovely Riverbank. Thank you, Nick and David, for your kindness and for our fabulous stay.

The cottage was very cozy and had everything we needed, the access road is typically narrow & windey the directions provided were excellent. We found some lovely easy walks that all managed. We visited Ulverston Christmas market, hoping to make this an annual event.
