Stayed here for ! week in June with my wife, and we were very pleased with our choice. The cottage was in a quiet location, was comfortable and had nearly everything one could ask for ( a light over the shower room mirror please). It makes a good base for exploring southern Lakeland and the local pub is 100 yards away ( but you wouldn't know it). There are local walks to be had offering good views of the coast, and all amenities are close by in Ulverston ( a lovely, small but lively market town).

The Crook is a beautiful cottage situated in a small village just south of the lakes. It is very well equipped, providing everything that a couple could need and the owner (next door) is very welcoming. Great Urswick is in a great location just at the southern end of the lakes, giving easy access to both major sightseeing attractions and good walking. The village is at the northern end of a small tarn and has two pubs within a couple of minutes walk from the cottage - The General Burgoyne also serves excellent food. The market town of Ulverston is close by, with a good selection of tea rooms and cafés. Although there are major supermarkets in Barrow, the local chain Booths has a big store on the edge of Ulverston, which is every bit as good. We would definitely stay here again when we visit the lakes next time.
