Here we have The Stable, 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 Stable is perfect for those who want a cosy place to stay after an active day exploring the area and 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 Stable can be booked alongside The Hayloft to accommodate a further 4 guests.
