Beautiful home in a lovely little town.

5 of 5
Having only had a couple of short trips through the Lakes previously, we wanted to experience it a bit more thoroughly......and we weren't disappointed. The property is in a great location, with just literally a few minutes stroll into the town, where there are some lovely independent shops and pubs - The Mill and Sun Inn were especially good. The house is very well appointed and finished to a high standard and has everything you need for providing a good base for whatever you have planned during your trip. Have already recommended to some friends and family and would have no qualms in booking here if we visit the area again. Thanks for letting us stay, we had a lovely time.

Absolutely stunning - perfect place to stay

5 of 5
We stayed a couple of weeks in this spaceous, modern, immaculate and well-loved and maintained property, my wife and I mmediately fell in love with it, it was absolutely gorgeous, it did more than only tick all our boxes. We enjoyed every single day here in Ulverston, location-wise it is also perfect, only a couple of hundred metres if at all and you are in the heart of Ulverston, e.g. 2 minutes to meet good ol' Stan and Ollie:-) . It was also an absolute pleasure to meet the owner, Ms. Blackledge, she was a great help in getting around here and learning to love Ulverston, in case of need she was always there to lend a helping hand. If we could give a bonus star, it would be well-deserved. What else can be said? Well, we hope we will be able to come back to Ulverston this year- and to stay.
