The owners definitely put alot of effort into this cottage. It was quite spacious for 4 people. It is situated just 5 mins drive from Ulverston village and the surrounding area is so beautiful and peaceful. The owners were so friendly and accommodating. We will definitely be back. Eimear-Jane

The booking was effective and simple, the arrival was just as explained but the added extra of a homemade lemon drizzle cake to enjoy ticked the added extras box. The weather wasn't kind to us on our arrival day, so to see the open log burning fire with all the accessories to hand to get it started was very welcoming and the logs were burning brightly after only 10 mins from starting the fire. The house itself, which was ideal for the 4 adults who visited, it was exceptionally clean, very well equipped and extremely comfortable for our weekend break. Additionally, it's central location was ideal, just a 30 second walk to shops, bars and restaurants. All in all, an ideal facility, allowing you to enjoy a short walk into Ulverston and good surrounding roads to enable access to many of the villages, towns or lakes you'd enjoy visiting in the South Lakes.
