The cottage adjoins the owner's main home which is a converted Dutch Barn. This barn was originally part of a working farm and is sited furthest away from the original farmhouse and therefore, as well as enjoying lovely views over the neighbouring farmers' fields, we are not overlooked by other houses.

The cottage has been lovingly and stylishly converted to a very high standard and is an ideal retreat for couples.

The Lake District

The Lake District with its impressive peaks, open fells and crystal clear lakes is nature at its most dramatic and you can understand why it has inspired poets, authors and artists throughout the ages. The area has England's five tallest mountains and its deepest lake, two national parks, three areas of outstanding natural beauty and an abundance of flora and fauna. Walking is one of the best ways of exploring the Lake District and one will always be rewarded with stunning views with the changing seasons.

Within an approximately 20 mile radius lie the well known and much loved holiday destinations such as Windermere, Bowness, Ambleside and Coniston - busting Lakeland towns and villages with their own unique visitor's attractions.

Western Lakeland is a land of vivid and exciting contrasts, lying between the mountains and the sea. The coastal towns and villages are within minutes of complete peace and tranquility.

Kirkby in Furness

Located in Cumbria, Chapels is a small quiet hamlet that lies between the nearby fells and the beautiful Duddon Estuary. It is located in the village of Kirkby in Furness where there is a local shop and 2 pubs within 1 mile radius. It is an ideal base from which to explore the local region.

Kirkby Ireleth was listed in the Domesday Book and was of Norse origin. On a clear day the panoramic views over the Duddon Sands to the Lakeland Fells and mountains is spectacular.

Coniston Lake is 7 miles away and the historic market town of Broughton in Furness is 6 miles away.

There are plenty of good pubs and places to eat within 20 minutes drive.

The famous Cumbria Way is within 5 to 10 minutes walking distance.

Dunnerholme Golf Course is 5 miles away. The flat top of the rock forms a strategic feature of the club's signature Par 3, sixth hole.

A 20 minute drive will take you to the South Lakes Animal Park for an experience you will never forget.

The market town of Ulverston with its famous Laurel & Hardy Museum is only 8 miles away and here you will find lovely cobbled streets and an open air market on Thursdays and Saturdays.

The Kirkby-in-Furness train station is approximately 1 mile away and provides a perfect opportunity to travel the Cumbrian west coast as far as Carlisle. The fascinating Muncaster Castle with its renowned owl centre - more than 200 birds of prey - lies on this route.

Explore the National Nature Reserve on Walney Island or discover the gems of our industrial heritage. The local Dock Museum is a unique building in a stunning coastal setting built within a dry dock.

Brantwood House, home of John Ruskin, with its famous gardens is also a fascinating day out. There is so much to see and do!!

There are a number of beaches that lie within easy driving distance both to the north and south of the property. A great beach to visit is Roan Head. The beach is a National Trust conservation area, and a two-mile stretch of the Cumbria Coastal Way runs through it.

"Lovely, cosy, everything you could need"

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in the cottage. It was very well equipped with everything we could need. The washing machine and tumble dryer proved very useful after a number of rather wet walks. The cottage was very warm and cosy to come back to after nice autumnal days out in the Lakes and the location was great for us. Chris and Mike were very helpful, even updating us that we may want to take a slight diversion to avoid some road works. We felt very welcome and at home. We would strongly recommend if you are looking for somewhere cosy, well located for the south Lakes and very well equipped.
