Come and unwind at Phinlain cottage in the South Lakes. We provide a relaxing and comfortable home from home for up to four people. For younger visitors, there is a playground to the side of the property. On rainy days, try karting or 10 pin bowling 15 minutes away in Barrow.

Phinlain cottage makes an ideal base for exploring the Lake District from the south, with Coniston water and Lake Winderemere only 10 miles away. The rest of the fells, lakes and lakeland towns such as Windermere, Ambleside, Hawkshead, Grassmere lie to the north.

Phinlain cottage is located just two miles from the cobbled streets of the historic market town of Ulverston, which still holds bi-weekly markets on Thursday and Saturday. For the more advenurous there is a livestock market on Tuesday. Go on, buy a cow.

If you need a sit down after all that try one Ulverston's many cafes pubs and restaurants. Closer to home, enjoy a well-earned drink at the “Wellington”, the CAMRA award-winning pub pub and microbrewery in Loppergarth.

For the very adventurous, the Cumbrian Way begins (or ends) in Ulverston, and the Cumbria Coastal way passes very close to the cottage.

NEW! In July 2014 we have added wi-fi! Loads of you have asked for it and we've listened. It's included in the price of your stay and we are sure it will help you to get the most from your holiday with us. Enjoy!

Weather not brilliant but this home was beautifully warm. Lovely pub almost
