Situated in a small and friendly village, this delightful cottage provides cosy accommodation for a couple or a family exploring the Ulverston and Grizedale parts of the Lake District. Making an ideal base for keen walkers and cyclists, this idyllic cottage provides bright and friendly accommodation for up to four guests. The cottage makes a lovely, relaxing retreat for guests exploring the southern lakes and the surrounding fells and woodlands.

This quaint, traditional cottage has been beautifully updated, while retaining plenty of original character. Stairs lead from a small lower hall up to the light, spacious and relaxing lounge/diner. The country-style kitchen is a pleasure to cook in and features stone flooring and heavy oak ceiling beams. The cottage has two comfortable double bedrooms, one with an en-suite shower room. You will also find a stylish bathroom and a small dressing room. Steps lead down into the charming patio garden which makes a lovely spot to sit back with a glass of wine or al fresco meal and watch the abundant local birdlife.

The lakes of Windermere (5 miles), Coniston Water (6 miles) and Esthwaite Water (8 miles) are all within easy reach, with plenty of opportunities for water sports, ferry trips and woodland walks. There are numerous other attractions and landmarks to discover in this stunning region including The Old Man of Coniston (12.5 miles), the South Lakes Safari Zoo (9.5 miles), Fell Foot (5.5 miles), Grizedale Forest (9 miles) and Holker Hall and Gardens (6.5 miles). The bustling market town of Ulverston (6 miles) was the birthplace of Stan Laurel and stands at the centre of the Furness Peninsula. The town has a wide range of pubs and restaurants, as well as venues including Coronation Hall, Ford Park and the world’s only Laurel and Hardy Museum.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

Lovely cottage in an ideal position for getting out and about, only downside is the parking. Listing says parking for 3 cars and is on a first come basis but realistically is only suitable for 2 as when we arrived we had to park behind 2 cars already there and ended up sticking out on the lane which was not ideal.

A very cosy 2 bedroom cottage, which was comfortable and practical. Set in a beautiful location in the village of Bouth, the local pub is literally a 2 minute walk. This serves excellent food. The cottage does have very limited parking though. We did use the pub car park with the permission of the owner.

The cottage was so warm and welcoming, felt so lovely to come back to each day, the setting so so peaceful, the garden was a typical cottage garden, didnt get to sit out in though, as we were out all day and then enjoyed a glass of wine sat out the front, with the sun setting, over looking the horses in the field.

We enjoyed our holiday in the cottage in May 2018 and were therefore disappointed on our return, in October 2019, to find that both the cottage and garden were suffering from a lack of TLC.

Beautiful cottage in a great South Lakes location. The cottage was very cosy, comfortable and very well equipped. As a lot of reviews say, parking was limited but we managed to park outside our cottage every day. Most definitely be staying again in the future.

Ash cottage in Bouth was lovely, it was clean, comfortable and had everything you need for a holiday cottage. The location was very quiet and peaceful. If only there was a guaranteed parking space, this is the only reason we wont go there again, which is a great pity because we loved the cottage.

The cottage was lovely - well equipped and clean. Be aware that the bedrooms are split across two floors but there are bathrooms on both floors - just be aware if you need to be near small children. The location is good and we were able to explore the Lake District fully, the local farm was a particular delight. The only issue was with the parking Read more- there is parking outside but it's not designated to the cottage and as there's no parking for the neighbours they often take up the parking spaces.

The property needs a little update and loving, (new fridge and dishwasher would be good) but the location of the property is fantastic and makes up for the downfalls. Meals at the White Hart are incredible, with access to other towns/villages nearby and nice walks on the doorstep.

Ash Cottage was clean and comfortable and well equipped, it is situated in a quiet village and has good access to visit anywhere in the Lake District. Parking at the cottage was for 2 nights taken by neighbours so had to use pub car park which luckily near by.

Adventure, memories and awe-inspiring natural beauty await you in the rugged, wild and unique Cumbrian Lake District where beautiful expanses of water merge with magical forests against a backdrop of dramatic mountains and fells.

This ancient land has been sculpted by time and nature and is the newest UNESCO World Heritage Site and the first UK National Park to be awarded this outstanding accolade. Poets, writers and artists throughout the ages have been instinctively drawn here; William Wordsworth, Beatrix Potter and John Ruskin, to name a few. The attractions and the diverse landscape will not fail to charm the young and the young at heart, whether that be thrill-seeking activities you seek, pure and cathartic inspiration or simply just some relaxation, you will find it here.

Cycling, walking, canoeing, white-water rafting, flying, parachuting and ballooning are just some of the offerings for any level of adrenalin junky. Experience the glory of nature in the wild or in a setting such as the Predator Experience where you can walk with wolves and learn about the importance of conservation. For a complete day of family, enjoy treetop capers at Go-Ape in the Grizedale Forest.

Vibrant towns and villages are there to be discovered, be it by land or water. You can step back in time and enjoy a steamboat cruise on a lake or leisurely unearth the dynamic scene of contemporary art, culture and some of the best dining in the UK by foot, bus or car.

The National Park is an area of breath-taking beauty that will leave you spoilt for choice, refuelled and inspired. So much so that you’ll want to come back time and time again.
