Property code: 83453

A newly refurbished cottage situated in South Cumbria, only a few miles from the coast - the perfect base for a getaway to majestic Lakeland.

Little Urswick, lies on side of a tarn, a wonderful wildlife habitat with a whole host of water birds occupying its sheltered corner. Birkrigg Stone Circle (4 miles) is one of several prehistoric settlement sites in the surrounding countryside, and the start of the Haematite and Cumbrian Way footpaths can be found a similar distance away. The ancient market town of Ulverston is just 2 miles away, and still has a street market every Thursday and Saturday, plus many festivals throughout the year, including an amazing lantern procession in September and a superb Dickensian weekend in early December. With all the attractions of the Lake District National Park, beaches, and good birdwatching of the Furness coast close by, this peaceful and quiet area has plenty to offer. This property dates to 1658 and still retains a lot of the original features from the lovely oak beams to the old-style flooring and layout.

Upon walking through the front door, you will see the thought and effort the owners have gone to restore this property to its former glory, while adding a modern feel. The lounge area is the hub of the house with a corner sofa and armchair where you can enjoy relaxing in front of the wood-burner whilst watching a film on the Smart TV. There is also a perfect spot for your legged friends to chill under the window on the church-style bench. The kitchen/diner has a Lakeland cottage style to it with lovely mosaic tilling and oak worktops. There is an electric oven and hob, fridge/freezer, microwave and washing machine. Onto the first floor is the large bathroom with an amazing roll-top bath (perfect for a good soak after a day of walking), shower and WC. On this floor is you will find a double bedroom with built-in storage and the master bedroom is located on the second floor with a king-size bed and pull-out sofa if required.

The garden has plenty of space for the kids and your four-legged friend to enjoy while you sit back and relax on the raised decking area. There is also a stone-built BBQ and parking on-site for two cars.

  • 2 bedrooms - 1 double and 1 king-size
  • 1 bathroom with roll-top bath, separate shower and WC
  • Electric oven and hob, microwave, fridge/freezer, and washing machine
  • Wood-burner (the first basket of logs provided)
  • Underfloor heating
  • Parking for two cars
  • 2 dogs allowed
  • Decking area with seating, lawn area and stone-built BBQ
  • Shop 4 miles and pub just over 1 mile

A lovely cosy cottage with great heating and woodburner for a chilly time of year. A well equipped kitchen for self catering needs. It was well situated for access into Ulverston and the Lakes - though not so near that it felt it could become over run in the summer months. Lovely walking and pubs nearby

Absolutely gorgeous cottage, spotlessly clean with the benefit of off-street parking. We received a warm welcome, and found fresh flowers and various treats waiting for us and our two dogs. The kitchen is well equipped and the underfloor heating kept us very comfortable, and we loved sitting by the fire when the sun went down. Stunning bathroom tooRead more!
