This charming country cottage is perfect for couples who are keen to explore South Cumbria, including the southern Lakes. Immerse yourselves in the rural tranquillity and enjoy walks in every direction from your front door.

Here we have this impressive holiday home, a cosy apartment for two converted from the lower ground floor of a traditional Cumbrian barn. It’s in the tranquil hamlet of Broughton Beck, surrounded by beautiful countryside with stunning walks to be enjoyed right from your doorstep – including a range of hills that the locals refer to as the mini-alps.

This peaceful location does not compromise on convenience as the market town of Ulverston is located just two and a half miles away. The birth place of Stan Laurel of Laurel and Hardy, Ulverston is a vibrant community set around cobbled streets and beautiful old buildings. There is a thriving high street of independent shops, cafes, restaurants and pubs, an art deco cinema and a regular farmers’ market.

Nearby Cartmel is home to two Michelin starred restaurants, sticky toffee pudding and an amazing cheese shop! Just a 15 minute drive from The Stable is Coniston Water, and Lake Windermere at Newby Bridge is 15 minutes in the opposite direction. If you enjoy your sport, then you are spoiled for choice with golf, horse riding, rock climbing, sailing, canoeing, wild swimming all nearby. Or if you have come simply to relax, there is the Buddhist temple in Ulverston offering retreats or you can book a spa day in Newby Bridge. Nearby is Birkrigg stone circle, Furness abbey, and the Dock museum if you have a keen interest in history.

The property can be booked for short breaks for 3+ days at any time of the year. Please contact us if your desired dates are available but aren't available to book directly online.

The property can be booked alongside the property to accommodate a further four guests.

Such a cute little place, ideal for couples. Everything was very clean and tidy and we were made most welcome by the owner. Bed was comfy, bathroom was very nicely finished and spotless. Superb!

The Lake District National Park is situated in the north west of England in the county of Cumbria. It is famously home to England’s tallest peak, largest lake, deepest lake and some of the most beautiful views in the British Isles. It has been a major draw for holidaymakers for over 200 years and its popularity shows no signs that this will diminish anytime soon. Adding to the spectacle, there are long-distance walking trails, endless history and culture to appreciate, as well as an unbeatable array of outdoor activities to try in some exceptionally eye-catching locations.

Mountains, lakes, rocky rivers, waterfalls, and valleys lined by stone walls characterise the Lake District National Park. Add to this vision slate-roofed villages, winding country roads, arctic alpine and wildflower meadows, and beautiful birds such as skylarks, curlews, meadow pipits, and lapwings, which all provide the perfect backdrop for a holiday. The poet, William Wordsworth, who lived in Grasmere, wrote a guidebook of the area in 1810, and very little has changed in the region to tie it into the modern world. The centre of the Lake District is dominated by its craggy mountains such as Scafell Pike and its exceptional lakes like Windermere, Ullswater, Derwentwater, Coniston Water and so many more.

Each of the Lake District’s towns has a village sensibility, yet all of them offer handy amenities, cultural attractions and some of the North West’s best places to eat and drink. Top visitor attractions include The World of Beatrix Potter, Sizergh Castle, Hill Top, Go Ape Grizedale, Grizedale Forest, Fellini and Zefferelli’s Cinema/Restaurants, the Bluebird Mk II, Ravenglass Roman Bathouse alongside a world of outdoor sporting and activity providers. Natural landmarks include Aira Force, Tarn Hows, Scaffell Pike, Castlerigg Stone Circle, The Old Man of Coniston, Helvellyn and Skiddaw. Pull on your walking boots and traverse the long-distance walking trails of the Lakes like Wainwright’s Coast to Coast, and the Tour of the Lake District.

As you get to know the region better, you will find evidence of prehistoric and ancient man in the Lake District, as there are standing stones, circles, and rows to find, as well as one of the largest standing Roman buildings in the UK. Visit Ravenglass, one of the UK’s oldest settlements and the only coastal village in the Lake District; it has beautiful waterside views of the Munros of Southern Scotland. Remnants of the region’s industrial activity can be traced in the form of bobbin mills, gunpowder mills, and mines. The Lakes also have some famous literary and art associations, including Beatrix Potter, John Ruskin, Arthur Ransome, Samuel Taylor Coleridge, William Wordsworth, JMW Turner, John Constable, LS Lowry and Percy Kelly.

It could take you five lifetimes to visit each of the places mentioned here; a good way to see more of the Lake District National Park is stay at one of our self-catering holiday cottages. Our range of holiday properties in the Lake District and Cumbria gives you the perfect place to stay in the north west countryside or on the coast. Our self-catering cottages in the Lake District offer lovely holiday accommodation to suit all your needs, from cottages to rent for a romantic getaway to larger properties for the whole family – we even have dog-friendly holiday homes across the Lake District too. Take a look at our full collection of self-catering cottages and begin to plan your holiday.
