Cottage | 1 bedrooms | sleeps 3

Key Info
  • Great for children of all ages 5
  • Car advised

  • Private garden

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. The double bedroom opens onto the wooden sun deck, complete with garden furniture, which looks out across the property's private field.

With a double bed the cottage is ideally suited for a couple. However, there is a sofa bed which could accommodate a second person or a child. The property includes a small wet room with toilet, shower, and small wash basin. Please see our photographs to appreciate the layout and proportions and do not hesitate to send us an email if you have any questions.

Orchard Cottage offers free WiFi. Linen is provided as are hand towels and tea towels; we ask that you bring your own bath towels. Logs for the fire are provided. Laundry facilities are available should you require.

Thank you for visiting our page.

'We loved the sunny mornings in the cottage and the cosy nights by the fire! You made us feel among friends and we looked forward to returning each evening after the days adventures. You've created a very special environment to which we will certainly return.' Mr Sigmund, New Jersey, USA

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 ...

Thank you so much for taking the time to review Orchard Cottage. Last year I purchased the bench with drinks table in between but that has not proved robust enough. You are quite right the decked patio would benefit from a table and chairs and we shall look into purchasing a new set soon. Thanks for your comments.

My pleasure, pleased you enjoyed it. The pheasants are pretty special, the cock and at least three hens feed daily outside the bay window of the cottage so can be seen whilst eating breakfast along with other garden birds. Our newest edition to the feeding tree are gold finches which are also beautiful.

Very pleased you enjoyed your stay, Christmas is a special time. I'm not always here to light a fire but if I know someone is coming in late in the afternoon, and I am here, I can light the fire if required on cold wintry days.
