We've just returned from a 3 night stay at Daisy Cottage. We have had a fabulous time! The terrace of cottages are very newly built, & have been finished to a very high standard.
We took our 6 month old daughter, a highchair & travel cot were provided, & our baby monitor worked across both levels- meaning we could spend time in the hot tub with baby upstairs in bed!
Everything was clean & good quality. The interiors are very luxurious. I enjoyed a hot bubble bath in our bedroom looking out over the field next to the cottage.
We got "picky bits" in for dinner but ate out for lunch. We went to the Fishermans Arms once (quite basic but clean, & standard pub food) & The Old Farmhouse (excellent menu, lovely staff & great food) twice.
We walked upto Hoad Monument, shaky legs once at the top but worth it for the views! Ulverston town centre has some good shops, a fab children's shop "Tantrum" where we spent a small fortune. There's a nice tea room & a couple of nice pubs where we saw some of the St Georges Day Festival performances.
Across the road from the cottages there's a couple of fields you can cross to walk to the coast. We didn't walk on the beach as it was getting quite windy but it's an easy 5 minute walk, & we got to show our daughter the horses & cows in neighboring fields. Out of the cottage & right is a nice drive down further along the coast, where the beach is abit more accessible, & also out & left (towards Bardsea campsite) some good spots for walks on the coast, & an excuse for some homemade ice cream!
We had a small a problem with the boiler stopping working on our second day. However, this was quickly resolved with the owners coming to speak to us in person, using a back up system & then resolving the issue themselves, by following instructions over the phone from an engineer. We were very impressed with how responsive the owners were & this was clearly an unforeseen circumstance. We were able to enjoy hot baths & the hot tubs after this.
There is a coop about a 5 minute drive down the road if you need any extra supplies. There is also an excellent children's playground turn left at the junction just after signs for Aldingham Parish. Also noticed a decent playground at the leisure park for Bardsea campsite on our way home.
We have already been looking at dates to return to the cottages, perhaps with friends next time too. There were people staying in the cottages next to us, but apart from friendly "hellos" in the mornings, we wouldn't have known anyone else was there.
Really pleased we found such fabulous accommodation, owners who go out of their way to make sure you are comfortable is an added bonus.
Thank you & see you again soon...
Sasha, Oli & Esmé Lampkin
