"Wonderful Town Centre Property"
I have only wonderful things to say about this property. The whole place is quite well looked after, and we instantly felt comfortable and at home upon entering. The downstairs library and TV room has… More

"Beautiful Town House with Immaculate Service...and a sauna!"
The owner, Lesley, is clearly very proud of her home and very keen to ensure her guests receive the highest level of service and attention possible, she certainly achieves these high levels.
The property is well positioned in the centre of Ulverston and provides an excellent base to explore the towns many pubs and restaurants. Set over 4 floors, the house had ample space for our large party (4 adults, a 3 year old and 5month old baby), and is a wistful collection of rooms that are packed with character.
The library room on the ground floor is comprehensive in its reading list and comfort, whilst the kitchen and conservatory would of provided the ideal venue to peruse the weekend papers over a brew and breakfast (if only those children didnt need entertaining!).
The first floor has a well appointed double bedroom, and an intriguing sitting room filled with exquisite furniture and a slightly decadent honesty bar (if we hadnt of brought our own drinks we'd have had no complaints tucking into the generous liquors and beers on offer).
The top floor has a lovely single bedroom, ideal for a little person, our daughter found it a perfect place to play and rest her head. The top bedroom has a spacious wardrobe and a deliciously soft rug. I couldnt get comfy in the bed though which was not forgiving after a day of exploring the lakes.
The cellar is for me, the highlight of the property. It is home to a wonderful sauna and relaxation area, complete with rainforest style shower. I followed Lesley's written instructions for a relaxing sauna session (including ice cold showers!) and i must say it was reinvigorating in the extreme.
My minor disappointment is one that the owner couldnt really have done much about. Throughout the Saturday night, a large number of rowdy pub-goers spent most of the evening having loud and aggressive rows on the street directly outside the house. I suppose this is the risk with having a house so well positioned near the centre of town, but it did sour the relaxing atmosphere that is created when you step into the property.
Overall, a lovely property that I would both recommend and book again, where good service and attention to detail are guaranteed.

"Lovely accommodation - lovely town - great for the lakes"
We really enjoyed our stay at 20 Queen Street. Probably helped by the excellent weather for the time of year. The Farmers pub (a stroll towards the market square) did really good food and was very family friendly. The owners have gone the extra mile to make you feel special. Would recommend to everyone wanting to go to the lakes.

"A treasure of cute and quirky spaces for kids"
Our family of three children (6, 3 and 1) thoroughly enjoyed exploring the uniqueness of this place during our stay. This was our first trip to the Lake District from the US, and we definitely felt we… More
Thank you very much for your review and for highlighting that there are apparently 2 bathrooms ! On our own site we do make it clear that it is just a shower room in the cellar and I think Holiday Lettings and TripAdvisor has misunderstood this - we will be correcting !

"Great sauna, comfortable beds - great after a day walking the lakes"
This is a lovely house in an ideal location for exploring the Lakes. The town of Ulverston has plenty to offer in terms of shops, pubs, restaurants and even local walks.
The kitchen is well equipped - the conservatory the ideal place for reading the papers on a Sunday morning with a coffee from the Gaggia.
The sauna is a welcome treat especially after a day walking the lakes. The bathroom is a good size and the large bath allows for a good long soak - the separate shower cubicle has a great rain fall shower.
With 4 adults staying - there was plenty of space for us all.
Parking proved to be very easy - we always found a spot for our 2 cars and using the parking permits supplied.
We really enjoyed out stay at TQS!

"A Chelsea home close to the Lake Distric"
We went to visit the Lake District but opeted to rent a family house rather than three hotel rooms.
This house is amazing, very comfortable and central and superbly refurbished, with modern kitchen and bathroom.
The small town is very charming and conviently close to the Lake District.
The Sauna has been tested at high temperature and approved by a Finnish person in our group.
The visitor's parking permits and the welcome basket for breakfast were a very nice touch.

"Stunning property, great location, would recommend to everyone"
Just got home from 20 Queen St, I stayed 4 nights with my son (15) and daughter (11), we had a fabulous time, the house is stunning, it has a great relaxing vibe, and the comfiest holiday place we have ever stayed anywhere, and the most well equipped, spread over 4 floors and screams quality! the first thing my daughter said is can we live here! My son hooked up is ps3 and away he went. Ulverston has it's charms too and is located close to most of what the Lakes has to offer. If you are planning a Lakes trip, you can't go wrong here, book it now!
