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.

The cottage was great. It was very warm when we arrived despite the bad weather and Jenny's directions and pre-arrival messages helped us get there smoothly. It contained everything we needed in order to light the fireplace which was a great add-on to the complete amenity set of the house. The surroundings are great and the 360 degree view of...

This is our second visit to the Orchard cottage. First visit was in the summer for the festival. This time was February as the open fire in the winter attracted us to rebook. We had a fabulous couple of days at the cottage. Open log fire made it. Jenny was on hand for anything we needed, perfect host. Arrived Friday...

Management response:

Always special to see returning guests and am usually around to help where I can. Thanks for leaving the cottage so immaculate. Look forward to seeing you again when you are next ready for a chilax!

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 ...
