I really would highly recommend this beautiful house in the Lake District. The house itself was wonderfully clean and modern whilst still retaining all of the gorgeous features. It was lovely and warm in the house which was great as the weather was terrible. We lit the fire and there was plenty of dry firewood in the house. The fire had already been made up for lighting on our arrival which was a really nice touch. There was also a beautiful homemade lemon drizzle cake left for us and we really enjoyed it. There is plenty of small touches here e.g. Hair dryer, iron and ironing board, dishwasher, some sauces etc in the kitchen which just make for a really convenient stay. The location for Ulverston itself could not be any better. It was also so easy to get around to plenty of other places in such a short time. Can't wait to go back :-)
Stayed here for a weekend at the races. Great location, right in the centre of Ulverston and only a ten minute walk to the station. The house itself is amazing - beautiful decor with a really welcoming feel. The house was actually more spacious than we expected (though it is cosy it is definitely not cramped!) The beds were very comfortable and the entire house very clean. The owners provide a great deal of information about the surrounding areas and are more than happy to help with any questions you may have (whether before or during your stay). Everything was perfect, we are already planning our next stay here!
We had a wonderful time at the Butler's House. The cottage is stylishly decorated and newly refurbished. Beds were comfortable, lovely bathroom, everything was really clean. All mod cons to make this a real home-away-from home. The cottage is in an ideal location near to the town, easy to walk within a few minutes. Great base to explore the beautiful Lake District. Would thoroughly recommend this accommodation
The Butler's House is an absolutely wonderful place to stay the location was brilliant, just off the town centre on a cobbled street which provided peace and quiet but with the bonus of a 1 minute walk to a choice of restaurants, pubs and quaint shops. After a 4 hour drive we were grateful to find fresh milk in the fridge for a cup of tea and the most amazing homemade Lemon Drizzle cake, it was to die for and I have to confess to eating most of it to my shame. The house itself is spotlessly clean, and very tastefully decorated with the comfiest beds we have possibly ever had the pleasure to sleep in. Communication with the owners was excellent with a fantastic amount of useful information provided about the facilities at the house which were excellent, local attractions and great suggestions for eating out. On the owners recommendation, we tried the Rose & Crown, the food and service was excellent. We also made a visit to Amigos Mexican restaurant which had a lovely relaxed atmosphere and good food.
Looking forward to returning here again in the future, a perfect place to unwind and relax with so much close by, would certainly recommend 100%.
Everything from the initial booking to our departure was outstanding.
The booking was effective and simple, the arrival was just as explained but the added extra of a homemade lemon drizzle cake to enjoy ticked the added extras box.
The weather wasn't kind to us on our arrival day, so to see the open log burning fire with all the accessories to hand to get it started was very welcoming and the logs were burning brightly after only 10 mins from starting the fire.
The house itself, which was ideal for the 4 adults who visited, it was exceptionally clean, very well equipped and extremely comfortable for our weekend break. Additionally, it's central location was ideal, just a 30 second walk to shops, bars and restaurants.
All in all, an ideal facility, allowing you to enjoy a short walk into Ulverston and good surrounding roads to enable access to many of the villages, towns or lakes you'd enjoy visiting in the South Lakes.
We spent a lovely week at the Butlers House in April.
The house was perfectly decorated to a high standard with quirky touches of Lake District chic. The kitchen was well equipped...and had everything we didn't even know we needed including sandwich bags! A necessity for those day trips. The beds were very comfortable and the house was exceptionally clean.
The location was great too - very short walk to the shops of Ulverston and well located for day trips out. i was travelling with children so visits included Ullswater, the high nets at Windermere, a farm in Bouth and much more.
Highly recommend - looking forward to a future visit.
