Orchard Cottage is secluded and set in open countryside adjoining the owners' home. Beyond the cottage garden, the property enjoys panoramic views of the local countryside and the distant Lakeland fells. The pine kitchen leads into a light and spacious living area with pine ceilings and maple floors. A feature fireplace made with local green slate houses a wood-burning stove: ideal for those cosy nights by the fire. At the other end of the cottage is the dining area, where meals can be enjoyed overlooking the apple orchard and views.

About the neighbourhood
Orchard Cottage is an excellent base for walking, sightseeing or just unwinding. A short drive from the cottage will bring you to the market town of Ulverston, the birthplace of Stan Laurel (of Laurel and Hardy fame). Coniston, Windermere and the Duddon Valley are within 20 minutes drive and the surrounding villages with traditional pubs, quality craft workshops and tearooms have much to offer. The majestic ruins of Furness Abbey should not be missed and lovers of wildlife will be attracted to the nearby animal park and to the nature reserve of Walney Island ...
How to get there
Sat Navs Will get you close with the post code LA12 0TQ but dont always get it spot on. The links and directions below are more exact. If travelling by car, via the M6, turn off at junction 36 signposted Barrow-in-Furness. Follow the A590 towards Barrow-in-Furness. Pass through the town of Ulverston and continue toward Barrow-in-Furness. Turn left off the A590 at Lindal. Signposted Candle Factory. You are 1.5 km away. Follow road past Candle Factory and on past farm on right. Turn left at crossroads. We are located on your left, about 200m after the crossroads (and before you get to a second crossroads).
