About this property

Ulverston 2.9 miles. Huntsmans Cottage is a lovely, two-bedroom holiday home resting in the quaint village of Broughton Beck, near Ulverston in Cumbria. With a collection of elegant, traditional interiors, and a good position just a short drive from amenities and the magnificent Lake District, this delightful abode welcomes a family or group of four seeking a relaxing, self-catered escape on the outskirts of a national park. Park up roadside next to Hunstmans Cottage, taking a moment to breathe in your peaceful new setting. Inside, discover an array of well-appointed living spaces, some of which feature wooden embellishments and tasteful stone flooring. Get to work in the fully-equipped kitchen/diner, where you can utilise an impressive electric range cooker to aid in whipping up a delicious home-cooked feast. Savour dinners as a group at the dining table before you kick back to relax in the sitting room, sticking a film on the Smart TV as you and your loved ones are kept warm by the crackling embers of a woodburning stove. When the night draws in, head upstairs to refresh with a rejuvenating shower or a soak in the bath before you finally catch you rest in either a plush king-size bed, or an equally inviting twin bedroom. If you fancy exploring the local area, jump in the car and head to nearby Ulverston, a bustling town home to a collection of independent pubs and eateries, such as The Mill at Ulverston, Base Restaurant, or Betulla's, as well as several convenience stores and supermarkets where you can stock up on essentials throughout your stay. Whilst you're in town, be sure to pop into the Laurel & Hardy Museum, amble through Ford Park, and snap photos of the Sir John Barrow Monument. Further afield, a brief drive will take you to a range of iconic landmarks and attractions, such as Dalton Castle, the brilliant Holker Hall & Gardens, and the Lakeside and Haverthwaite Railway. Enjoy a memorable escape to Cumbria when you choose Huntsmans Cottage.
