The Space

A traditional Lakeland cottage next to the River Leven in the famous Lake District National Park. The perfect place to explore the fells or for rest and relaxation.

The house has lots of character, with a real wood burning stove, stone walls and wooden beams throughout. There are lots of local walks, you're a a 5 minute drive from Newby Bridge and an 18 minute drive from Windermere. The National Trust property, Fell Foot Park, is only 10 minutes drive away.

We are well connected for public transport, lying on the route between Ulverston and Windermere the bus stop is a 2-3 minute walk from the house. The Haverthwaite & Lakeside Steam Railway station is just down the road and takes you to Lakeside, where you can enjoy boat trips across to Fell Foot Park or up to Bowness-on-Windermere and Ambleside.

The Whitewater Hotel is just across the road, offering 2 rosette dining and (email hidden) (we also have a conservatory with views over the river). The Cascades leisure club/pool is also just across the river and can used for £10/day. The Angler's Arms is a short walk away, offering tasty Cumbria dining and real ales. Breakfast is not included although you are more than welcome to make use of the kitchen.

Your room is a double room with lots of character - stone walls, wooden beams and a delightful river view. You can enjoy exclusive use of the feature bathroom, with stone walls, wooden beams and a claw-foot bath for the duration of your stay. There is also a shower room which you can use.

There is also a double sofa bed which can be booked for an extra £15 when booking the double room. Please ask for more details.

Free WiFi. Complimentary loose leaf tea and fresh coffee (bean-to-cup machine).

Free pick up from Ulverston train station, or a nearby location by arrangement, depending on your time of arrival.

There's also a handy village shop just a 5 minute walk away.

Andrew and Alex live in the house along with Basil the friendly Labrador. Always happy to offer local advice whether it's about walking, dining, attractions etc.

Come and visit this beautiful part of the Lake District - we look forward to welcoming you!

  • Andrew and Alex were wonderful hosts. Very friendly and respectful couple. Their dog is a real people-lover.
    The cottage itself is the ideal place to stay whilst in the area. Clean, cosy, and located in a beautiful setting.
    Wish them all the best!

  • Great location to get into the bottom of the Lake District. Welcoming couple, lovely dog and a comfy bed. What more do you need?!

  • We spent one night in Andrew and Alex's house and it was really nice. The room was cosy and they recommended us some beautiful places around the Lakes. Definitely a great choice in a not-tourist area.

  • Found it exactly as expected; lovely cosy cottage, clean, fantastic location, and really welcoming couple. We were greeted with a freshly brewed cuppa (from Andrew's tea range!) and lovely biscuits.. and friendly Basel! Would stay again :)

  • 2 nights here and it was so cool, loved every minute of it!!
    Andrew and Alex are lovely people and very welcoming, there house is cosy and clean with and unreal view of the river and old buildings opposite it.
    This place is ideal as its in the quite non tourist area of the lake district but so close to everything in the area.
    We would definitely stay here again if we came back.

  • Andrew and Alex have a very beautiful, special home and if you want to live in a real cottage, theirs is perfect. They were great hosts, very friendly and communicative and made us feel very at home. They have a very good knowledge of country walks and shared a whole host of maps with us! The house is the perfect getaway if you are looking for something quiet, away from touristy areas and special!

  • Andrew and Alex were perfect Hosts. My accommodation was clean, airy, bright,spacious and bathroom facilities were great. Full use of kitchen if required and a washing machine available to use. WiFi was excellentt. The most adorable home quite befitting with the area and such a relaxing and cosy ambience at the Cottage. Basil was also a very well behaved boy and always ready for a pat if one was offering. Thanks for a lovely stay and advice given on travel and touring enquiries, definitely a place to recommend.
