                                                              A real home away from home.

                                                              The property is very tastefully decorated with everything you need for a home away from home break/holiday. The house is located within walking distance of all amenities. Although property does not have private parking we had no problem parking in residents parking zone with permit supplied. The owners were very friendly and helpful and provided a very welcoming property. We would highly recommended staying.

                                                              Comfortable, clean, well equipped holiday home

                                                              We found the "Crow's Nest" a warm welcoming base for our trip to Ulverston. An easy walk into town with some lovely views. Perfect for bird enthusiasts especially if you like noisy crows! (it's well named). We were very lucky with the weather and even managed to sit in the garden enjoying some early evening sunshine sipping our complimentary wine. Overall our stay was great, it was just what we needed. Thank you.

                                                              Cosy winter retreat

                                                              Warm and homely period cottage superbly decorated with all modern facilities. We came between Christmas and New Year and the cottage was tastefully decorated to keep us in the festive spirit. While the garden room looked a good asset in summer. All rooms were well equipped, clean and comfortable. We used twin room for our children - there was plenty of space and the pull out bed was like a proper bed. Good location with easy access by car to Lake District and the coast - the scenary was stunning. Train station was just down the road to allow you to explore further afield. Janet, the owner, provides comprehensive and user friendly guide before arrival and a good stock of leaflets on things to do when you arrive. Would stay again and recommend this affordable cottage.
