Tom's Cottage, self catering holiday cottage, Dalton-in-Furness, Cumbria, close to Ulverston and Barrow in Furness, the Furness Peninsula and the South Lakes.
We are in a very rural location, surrounded by countryside and overlooking Burlington Trout Lake. There are footpaths from the house, and suggested walks are in the box of tourist literature/maps. There are over 40 types of bird feeding and nesting in our grounds and the immediate area. Previous guests all comment on the variety of birdsong heard here.
We are 1 ½ miles north of Dalton-in-Furness, where there are several pubs, at least 3 serving meals, and 2 excellent restaurants – one which is very reasonably priced. There is a large Co-op, a post office, banks, chemist and take-away food outlets.
A car is essential as we are up a private road, so there is no public transport within a mile.
Tom’s Cottage is attached to Park Cottage, and is now a self-contained holiday cottage, having previously been an award winning guest house. It is ideal for 2 couples wanting to share a holiday cottage. Only one child over 8 years can be accepted.
Park Cottage is a long , low detached house, some of which dates back 400 years. There are some old, exposed beams, and is a typical country cottage, but with modern facilities. We have 3 acres of grounds, mainly steep woodland, but some flower beds and a car park.
Upstairs, there are three bedrooms, (one with a King-sized bed; a double bedded en-suite room and the third room has a single bed, (suitable for a child over 8 years, or adult under 5’6”in height). There is also a family bathroom. Both double rooms can be used as en-suites.
On the ground floor is a sitting room, a dining room and a kitchen/diner.
Tom’s Cottage has the benefit of being surrounded by countryside - farmland, woodland and Burlington Lake and enjoys peace and tranquillity. There is car-parking, and the cottage has its own garden, with outdoor seating.
Sorry, no pets as we have an Airedale terrier who is very territorial.
