Robert is very kind-hearted and is ready to help you out. The house is just in town centre and is about 10 mins walk from rail station. The breakfast is very tasty. I'll definitely recommend any travellers to Ulverston to book Sefton House.

I stopped at Sefton House before starting the Cumbria Way. The staff were friendly and helpful.
The room fit exactly what I needed - a nice soft bed before a very long walk!

I am planning on stopping again some time this summer - and I am genuinely looking forward to it.

We stayed for a week while attending the Buddhist festival at Manjushri (a very pleasant walk down the road). Heaving my overpacked suitcase up the steep and narrow stairs was quite the workout, and the room seemed very small to this American, but turned out to be very comfortable. Sefton House is a delightful place, with delicious breakfast, and will very likely be my choice this summer when I return.

The house is comfortable and welcoming, as are the hosts. The location is excellent for access to Ulverston and out to the lakes and peninsulas. The breakfast was excellent with a good choice. My husband is allergic to wheat and so we brought our own supermarket loaf. The next morning, Rob the chef and proprietor had made a gluten-free loaf for my husband to enjoy with his breakfast. I have read some of the reviews that say the Sefton is in a timewarp - I disagree with this. Shabby chic,quirky and retro may be too modern for some reviewers! The ethos is green but not the decor - e.g. ecover products in the bathroom, organic and locally sourced products for breakfast and for the cafe. Good coffee with a conscience! What more can we say. We would certainly recommend the Sefton as a place to stay.

Room Tip: Possibly choose a room on the garden side of the house away from the road. But to be honest we did...

Interesting place, very bohemian and in terms of decor and furnishings a throwback to times past probably around the late 60s Woodstock and all that. The cafe concept is unique and the Sefton is ideally located in the centre of Ulverston which is a nice town, like the Sefton though it seems stuck in a time warp, which isn't necessarily a bad thing. The owners were friendly and helpful and the breakfast was good. Would appeal to the more eclectic traveller.

We travelled to Ulverston to play golf.We spent two nights at Sefton House right in the middle of the town convenient for everywhere.The room was a throw back to the seventies (furniture wise) with nothing matching.The whole house was a bit like this but had plenty of character. The food was vegetarian which we didn'nt know before we booked.We were pleasantly surprised how nice it was.It was a family run business and they couldn't have been more friendly.The son was studying music and boy could he play that piano.We had an enjoyable stay.

This interesting b and b is in the centre of town but Robert, the welcoming owner can guide you to excellent nearby parking. The b and b's breakfast room also houses a coffee bar which is open during some evenings and if you're musical, then they have open mike nights which look fun. Our room was clean and quite comfortable. Furnishings were random and there are interesting pictures on the walls from the owners' various travels. Breakfasts are vegetarian and plentiful - the fresh home-made bread is yummy!
