    West Shieling is the ideal bolthole for visiting the Lakes. This semi-detached, single-storey property is an old converted Methodist church, dating back to 1875. It was built along with many others in and around Ulverston as a place of worship for those working at the Steel works, on the Canal Foot in Ulverston. It has been refurbished to a very good standard, making it perfect for your holiday. At the end of the canal walks at Canal Foot is a good pub and restaurant serving very good lunch time and evening meals. The lakes are also nearby with Fell Foot, Newby Bridge and the start of Windermere only a few miles away. You can take the coast road up to Ravenglass to visit the La’al Ratty (Little railway), or visit the great beach at Silecroft. The large ship building town of Barrow-in-Furness is only 11 miles away with good shopping facilities and there is the Dock Museum and Walney Island with its bird sanctuary which are well worth a visit. You can simply relax and sit out with a glass of wine, whilst you enjoy the sunset. Canal Foot is a pleasant walk and with beautiful open views of Morecambe bay it is a sight to behold. Beach 3 miles. Shop, pub and restaurant 1 mile.

    "It is a well converted property, comfy beds and a really nice shower. What lets it down is the position on a housing estate, with no off road parking, and the lack of those extras that make a nice property something special. There was no hair dryer or corkscrew and the towels were a hand towel and small bath towel per person. Only one tee towel and a box of tissues with only one in it. Almost all properties we have rented in the past have supplied milk and a few basic foodstuff but there was nothing. Luckily we know the area so know where the late opening shops are as we turned up quite late. If you are a walker there is nowhere for wet or dirty boots and coats."

    "We booked West Shieling as my wife is disabled and the fact that everything was on one level was essential. First impressions are of a modern well cared for holiday home. We found issues around cleanliness in that the cooker hood required a deep clean, we found several dirty towels in the linen basket in the bathroom and the pans provided were dirty and some required replacement. We needed a safety bath mat as parts of the shower area were slippy. We later found a bath mat under the dirty towels after we had purchased a bath mat ourselves.The double bed had a mattress that did not fit the base which led to the risk of minor injury getting into / out of bed. The information ring binder was incomplete. There was no mention of the non slip bath mat, and most importantly there were no manufacturer's instructions on how to use the electric oven which led to the oven breaking on 2 occasions.The oven was repaired once but on using the grill again the door jammed resulting in the glass breaking. Manufacturer's instructions for appliances are available on line and can be printed for use by guests. The owner's scribbled instructions were incomplete ie. when grilling do you leave the door open or close it ?The sporadic availability of the oven meant we had to eat out on more occasions than we had originally planned. The issues around the oven did take the edge off our break.Bins (stored) outside were overflowing as I think our stay was between bin collection weeks but we were still baffled as to why the grey bin (which was outside the back gate in the alleyway) was overfilled when we got there. We left the premises on the Sunday, one day earlier than planned.All in all, we still enjoyed the break and believe that with a few tweaks (more crockery, new pans and no request to strip the beds) and attention to detail in providing adequate information held centrally in the 4 ring binder, West Shieling would be a more attractive holiday home.We shall not be returning however."

    "Cottage was very nice and clean. Location was in a residential terraced street with limited parking not the outlook you want on a holiday"
