Overview

About the property

3 bedroom, Bungalow accommodation with Mountain Views and private parkings

Halsteads is situated in a quiet village in the South Lake District close to the coast as well as the fells. It is only 15 minutes away from the festival market town of Ulverston, 20 minutes from Coniston or Barrow and 45 minutes from the Central Lakes. Travel to Halsteads is easy even in peak holiday season; the majority of the route on trunk roads through lovely scenery after leaving the motorway.

There are three bedrooms - one king size, one double and one twin. In addition there is a quality sprung mattress sofa bed which can accommodate a further 2 guests (please supply your own double linen if using this).

There is a family bathroom with bath, washbasin, toilet and large shower. In addition there is a separate cloakroom toilet.

The kitchen is a large, country style fully equiped with all appliances, utensils and cookware.

There are two lounges - the largest with wood burning stove. The smaller day lounge with views of the fells has the sofabed which accommodate a further 2 visitors.

From the house there are spectacular views over Kirby Pool, the Duddon Estuary and Mosses and on a very clear day to the Isle of Man. Over thirty tops are visible including Coniston Old Man, Stickle Pike, Black Coombe and Scafell. It has a pastoral setting with sheep in the meadows behind.

Village amenities include two pubs, a railway station, Post Office and well stocked village shop, sports facilities and a children’s play park, churches and health centre. It is an excellent area for walking, cycling and wildlife as well as sightseeing and historical interest; the Cumbria Coastal path runs five minutes from the door. Banks and more extensive shopping and leisure facilities can be found in Ulverston or Barrow-in-Furness. Halsteads lies within the Tesco home delivery area for the convenience of internet shopping ordered from home to be delivered on your arrival.

Halsteads is particularly suitable for families or mixed age parties with elderly relatives or friends.

Home from home stay; very comfortable

  • 5 of 5

Our stay st Halsteads (first visit to the Lake District) was welcoming and very comfortable: from the pint of milk in the fridge to the woolly hats by the door!

Shower powerful, beds extremely comfy and as the for the views.... outstanding!

Can't wait to return!

Excellent location on the edge of the Lake District

  • 5 of 5

Great property which had some fantastic walks in the lesser known parts of the Lake District...which meant no crowds which we loved. The Roman hillfort near Harter fell is not to be missed especially impressive from the top of the fell. Property was well equipped and great views of the hills and beautiful estuary.

Beautiful location and well-equipped

  • 4 of 5

We were a group of six friends attending an event in Ulverston that really enjoyed our 2 week stay at Halsteads, it felt like a home from home. The view of the southern Lake District is simply stunning, the village is very quiet and there are wonderful walking and running routes on the doorstep with some good bird watching opportunities on the estuary as well. The cottage is very comfortable and extremely well equipped including a powerful shower and dishwasher. We'd thoroughly recommend the cottage. Thank you Mike and Helen.

Spacious and comfortable bungalow

  • 4 of 5

Spacious and comfortable bungalow. Large kitchen/diner with the contents of the drawers and cupboards well labelled so most things found easily. Full laundry facilities, which we didn't use for our 3 night stay. Large living room with TV, DVD and VHS player (does anyone still use these?). Superb views from the kitchen of the Duddon Estuary and the Lakeland fells. Conveniently located for the south lakes without having to pay National Park rentals. Good value, and recommended.
