An imposing detached landmark holiday home in a most unique location!
This large residence is located on Roa Island, on the southernmost tip of the Furness Peninsula, 8 miles from the traditional Lakeland market town of Ulverston and 5 miles from Barrow-in-Furness with its extensive shopping facilities.
Overlooking the sea with a south-facing aspect, this Roa Island cottage has been lovingly decorated and furnished, oozing charm and character, with stone floors, high ceilings and palatial rooms.
Very much a home-from-home, this Roa Island cottage offers original wooden floors, inglenook fireplaces and many other original features in keeping with the style of this gorgeous house.
The sitting room is very spacious, with large windows, an open fire and a working piano.
The huge dining room of this Roa Island cottage adjoins a fabulous conservatory which extends onto three sides of the building, whilst the spacious kitchen/diner is well-equipped, ideal for cooking for large groups.
One of Roa Island House’s unique features is its amazing observation tower which provides 270-degree views of Morecambe Bay, Piel Island with its mysterious Piel Castle, the beautiful coastline and the many ships sailing past.
Outside, a large lawned area with a roof covered hot tub provides that something extra, and the chance to take in the splendour of this fabulous location whilst totally relaxing.
Just across the causeway is a delightful old pub, and summer ferries are available to explore Piel Island and Piel Castle, take a fishing trip, or enjoy trips to the seal colonies.
The amenities of Ulverston, the shopping facilities of Barrow-in-Furness, the beaches of the Furness Coast and the outdoor activities of Coniston and Grizedale Forest are all just a short drive away.
An excellent Roa Island cottage base, for friends and family alike.
