Hawthorn cottage is a delightful find in a great town for visiting the Lake District. Its location is amazing. Less than 500 yards from the market cross in the middle of town, yet the views and sense of peace from the garden are truly rural.

The cottage is very well equipped, with all the mod cons you could want, including very good wifi. The bathroom has a fab shower and awesome bath. Its very nicely finished. The same applies to a really spacious bedroom with a comfortable bed and good quality linen.

Vicky and family (who live next door) provide a really good welcome. They genuinely are nice folk who are interested in making sure your visit is a good one.

..... and the weather was great. 'nuff said?

You'll have a wonderful time here.

We are absolutely over the moon that you had a lovely holiday at Hawthorn Cottage, thank you for taking the time to share your experience. Having the town on your doorstep, yet still having that peaceful rural feel sounds fabulous, certainly the best of both worlds! We will be sure to pas your comments along to the owner and hope you return to enjoy the place all over again very soon!

“Ulverston's best holiday cottage for two people!”
Reviewed 1 February 2016 for a stay in October 2015

We actually stayed at this cottage THREE separate times in 2015 as we are conducting extensive research prior to moving to the Furness area. Having previously stayed in other self catering properties and most of the hotels in Ulverston we know quite a lot about the competition. Hawthorn Cottage met and exceeded our expectations. It is close to the town centre but without the parking and noise issues. Vicki who manages the property and lives nearby has been very helpful and showed a genuine interest in our property search.

An absolute delight! Fantastic spacious cottage with a lovely little garden. Lots of unexpected extras like fresh flowers, milk, coffee, sugar, tea etc upon arrival. Really welcoming. The cottage was very well equipped too. There was also a really helpful box of tourist information which provided some great ideas for walks and trips around the area. We had a dog with us so really good walk suggestions for guests. The town itself with shops and pubs literally a minutes walk away so great location. Would definitely recommend this cottage.

“Lovely cottage, good situation, and dogs welcome”
Reviewed 6 May 2015 for a stay in May 2015

Beautiful old cottage with traditional latched doors and a wood burning stove. Kitchen is modern and well-equipped - this is not one of those "self-catering" places where you discover too late that there's no corkscrew or egg cups. Dogs are welcome in downstairs area. There is an enclosed rear garden with views over the slate roofs of the little town to the hills beyond. A minute up the road and you are in open country with footpaths for dog-walking. Five minutes down the road is the market square with shops, pubs and restaurants.

“Nice cottage shame about the neighbours”
Reviewed 11 April 2015 for a stay in April 2015

people found this review helpful

Hawthorn cottage is described as a romantic retreat and on first impressions it appears to be the case that the description is pretty accurate. A clean and comfortable cottage in the town of Ulverston is potentially a great base from which to explore the Lakes without having the crowded feel of the National Park. We had planned to stay for a week but after 3 days the continual use of a JCB by the neighbours proved intolerable. Furthermore, the building site across the road which had closed when we arrived on Good Friday was poised to burst into action on Tuesday. We tried to contact the owner but did not get a reply and it transpired that the troublesome neighbours were her family anyway, so we cut our losses and left after 3 days. Sykes were helpful and this may be a good place to stay when all the building is completed but at the moment we could not recommend.

We loved Hawthorn Cottage. It was a characterful place with excellent furnishings and décor, as well as a wood burning stove. Ideal place for a short stroll into the fascinating town of Ulverston. The owner was friendly and helpful. There's a small garden and views from some windows too.
