Arrived Boxing Day with my two children to find a welcome as warm as the open fire that had been lit for us by the owner. The cottage is spotlessly clean and very charming. We awoke to beautiful views and a wide assortment of wild birds that were feeding on the feeders on the old apple tree outside the dining...

Wet room,very small, poor water pressure & the plug in the very small wash basin wouldn't seal.Basic equipment in kitchen area, 4 ring hob but only a combi microwave for cooking. The settee & chair in the lounge area had seen better days, when sat in you find yourself much closer to the floor than expected. The bedroom although small...

Management response:

Oh dear, it sounds like you got all confused while booking. We do not offer ‘5 star’ accommodation. The cottage has only ever been rated ‘3 stars’ by the official tourist board system. The good news is we are very competitively priced in the market and a quick check online tells me that you would indeed have paid more for...

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 ...
