“Outstanding hospitality part 2 !”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 May 2014

This was our second stay at the Derby Arms in the past 12 months, this time staying on a busy bank holiday weekend. Steve and Sally were just as hospitable as our last visit despite being rushed off their feet. Nothing really is too much trouble and as many people have mentioned in other reviews you are made to feel like part of the family. Every attempt is made to accommodate you, right down to having flexible breakfasts times, so you can have a lie in !
Review after review mentions how friendly Steve and Sally are and that many people can't be wrong. Steve and Sally really have made the Derby Arms a special place to stay at and I really can't recommend the place highly enough.

Steve was very accommodating. Cooked us both a veggie breakfast & provided soya milk too. Very tasty. Bedding smelled of fresh laundry & everything was clean. Ate down the road at The General Burgoyne which was delicious. Would stay again.

The converted stable building holds 4 bed and breakfast guests, which are charming. Room was a good size,tastefully decorated with high ceilings and sash windows.Breakfast was superb which consisted of local bacon and sausage with all the trimmings of a traditional full English and fresh coffee.
My husband and I were made to feel very welcome, with excellent service provision all round.
Recipe of everything you need for a comfortable and enjoyable bed and breakfast, with the additional bonus of great value for money.
Charming place with friendly owners who are superb hosts - we highly recommend the Derby Arms Inn.

The owners couldn,t do enough for us and the breakfasts were all freshly cooked and superb , would deffinately recommend it to friends and will be going again in the future.

This is lovely, peaceful, nights sleep with a great room in a lovely location and breakfast cooked to order. The room was in a converted stable block that was extremely well decorated and the owner was very friendly. I recommend this.

The Derby Arms is the perfect spot for a break. The rooms are clean and functional while detatched from the main building so noise is not and issue. The pub itself is the perfect village pub, the open fire is as warm as the welcome you will recieve from your hosts and the locals are friendly which creates a wonderfull atmosphere, (all helped along by a few pints of real ale).

The management are very helpfull and the Breakfast (served in the pub) is excellent with a selection of cereals, yoghurts and juices being complemented by a freshly cooked full English. The Derby Arms is situated in Urswick Village which is a only 5 minute drive into Ulverston.

Room Tip: 2 or the rooms are up steep stone steps, if your mobility is not great please specify you require a...
