Overview

About the property

Large 4 bedrooms / 2 bathroom cottage. Gardens with great views and hot tub.

This traditional Lakeland cottage has generous accommodation for up to eight guests and has many original features, including flagstone and Oak floors, beamed ceilings, wood burning stove, open fire places, original doors and timber paneling. There is a wood fired, Scandinavian hot tub. A great way to relax after a day on the fells or to enjoy the amazing night skies that this area has to offer.

House sits on a generous plot with beautiful gardens, great views & ample parking, just a short walk from the babbling, clear waters of the River Duddon. The spectacular scenery of the unspoiled Duddon valley made it a favourite location of both William Wordsworth and Alfred Wainwright, both of whom wrote extensively about this beautiful part of the Lake District. Whilst in an ideal location to access the central & southern lakes and all the amenities on offer, the pretty village of Ulpha is an oasis of peace and quiet in an area still dominated by traditional fell farming. It is situated 4 miles north of Broughton-in-Furness & is a popular destination for walkers, cyclists, anglers, nature lovers and those just looking to rest, relax, breathe fresh air and take in the sights.

The accommodation consists of a farmhouse kitchen, dining room, living room, snug / second living room, downstairs cloakroom, utility / drying room (in adjoining barn), 2 double bedrooms, 1 twin bedroom, bunk room, family bathroom and shower room. There is wifi (up to 2.0 mb/s) and a coin operated pay phone for outgoing calls.

Outside there is ample parking for 3 or 4 cars, beautiful south facing cottage garden to the rear, further garden with pond to the front and stunning, far reaching views over the river and surrounding fells. There is ample outdoor seating, picnic tables, BBQ and of course a lovely hot tub.

The village of Ulpha has a small shop / post office and the Newfield Inn / restaurant is 1.5 miles (comfortable walk) away in neighboring Seathwaite. The Blacksmith’s Arms in Broughton Mills (4 miles) serves great food and local beers and there are numerous other hostelries in nearby Broughton-in-Furness and Eskdale.  The Stepping Stones and Ulpha Bridge are popular spots for swimming, picnicking or just messing about by the river. There is great fishing in the area, Wasdale & Eskdale are a short drive away and for those looking for a bigger challenge Scafell Pike (highest mountain in England) and The Old Man of Coniston are within easy reach. And if its a day at the beach you’re looking for there is a lovely coastline and shingle beaches at Haverigg, Silecroft & Silloth, between 10 & 12 miles to the south. There are many tourist attractions in the area, including Muncaster Castle and Ravenglas & Eskdale Railway.

Wonderful cosy home in great location

  • 5 of 5

The house was really well equipped and furnished to a high standard. Beds were comfy and the huge bath was a great treat after a long walk.

The log fire and home comforts like the books and local information added to the feeling of relaxation.

As keen walkers we found plenty of local walks with great scenery. Some good local pubs and restaurants too. Owner was very helpful. Property very clean and recently renovated to high standard. Would highly recommend and will definitely be going again!

Lovely period property in a wonderful location

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic weekend in this lovely house. This is our favourite part of the Lakes with stunning views and a real feel of "getting away from it all". The property is spacious, warm and cosy with all the equipment you need. Its also full of character and tucked away in a beautiful valley. Met all our expectations. Thoroughly recommend.
