Ulverston

A holiday cottage in Ulverston is a great choice if you want to experience life in a traditional Cumbrian market town. With its welcoming cafes and pubs, renowned festivals and breathtaking views of south Lakeland’s tranquil countryside, a more idyllic location for cottage holidays would be hard to find. Ulverston is eight miles north of Barrow-in-Furness, a stone’s throw from the Lake District and Morcambe Bay. Both can be clearly seen from Ulverston’s most distinctive historical landmark, Hoad Monument, which perches on a hillside overlooking the town. This is a great place for a sel-catering holiday outside the main summer season: Ulverston is known as a Festival Town and hosts a variety of exciting events throughout the year, the most famous of which is the Lantern Festival, when lanterns made of willow and tissue are paraded through town, filling the streets with magical streams of light. Beer, comedy, music, flags and fashion are also celebrated annually by this vibrant community.

Also worth a visit is the Lake Glass Centre, where you can watch molten glass being transformed into exquisite works of art. If you fancy an evening out, see what’s on at Coronation Hall, a lovely theatre in the town centre. Thanks to its dramatic location in the heart of the Furness Peninsula, Ulverston is perfect for visiting the glittering waters and misty mountains of the Lake District, and the sandy beaches and fishing villages of Morcombe Bay. Many of south Lakeland’s most beautiful towns and villages are just a short drive away, including Cartmel, Grange-over-Sands, Cark-in-Cartmel, Coniston and Hawkshead. The countryside surrounding Ulverston holiday cottages is wonderfully unspoiled and perfect for walking and wildlife-watching. The town is the start of the Cumbrian Way, a 70-mile route that meanders through some of the region’s most spectacular scenery.
