Only five minutes from both Ulverston and Lake Windermere, this cottage is in the perfect spot for exploring the Lake District.

It is set in a peaceful lofty village, overlooking Morecambe bay to one side and the Mountains, lakes and forest to another.

Built in the 1800s and still with original features but recently renovated, the cottage is equipped with everything you might need for a perfect comfortable getaway... The best of both worlds!

The space
Perfectly suited for a couple, or a small family or group of adults. The house is very spacious and whilst there is room and beds for up to 6, we find it works best with no more than 4 adults. This is also in respect of the friendly neighbours and peaceful area we are lucky to be part of.

Facilities include - large smart TV, freeview, fast speed WiFi, central heating and two log fires, double glazing, comfy sofas, fully fitted kitchen including double oven and dishwasher, microwave, fridge freezer, washing machine and tumble dryer. Bathroom has wc, wash basin, bath and electric shower.

Sleeping arrangements - The two double bedrooms are of good size, and we have a lovely attic room with almost a sea view (on your tip toes!) We also have a day bed in the entrance room.

House layout - This is a period house with original features such as exposed wood beams and cottage doors. On the ground floor, we have a porch, an entrance room, cosy living room and small office area. On the second floor, we have the two bedrooms, bathroom and large airy kitchen-diner with farmhouse door. On the top floor we have the converted attic room.

Outdoors - We have a lovely garden with a table for 4, seating and grass area for playing.

Food and toiletries - We stock the house with most of the basics you might need for the first day or two (tea and coffee, toilet and kitchen roll, cleaning product, etc). All clean bedding and towels are included.

Local area - We are part of a very small and peaceful village and accordingly please respect this.

Access - Note that due to the original features of the cottage including uneven and narrow staircases, beams on ceilings and steep inclines by the side of the house, this may be unsuitable for older or less able people.

Pets - You are welcome to bring up to 2 well behaved dogs into the cottage, there will be an additional charge of 10 pounds per dog per stay (or £30 if booking for a full week). Please send us a message to confirm.

Parking - Free parking outside the property and plenty of space further up the road for additional cars.
