An imposing detached landmark holiday home in a most unique location!
This large Rao Island holiday home with seven bedrooms lies 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, Roa Island House offers wooden floors, inglenook fireplaces and many other original features in keeping with the style of this gorgeous Cumbrian holiday home.
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 Cumbrian coastline and the many ships sailing past.
Outside, a large lawned area with a roof covered hot tub provides a memorable opportunity to take in the sea views from this dramatic location while relaxing in the bubbles.
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 in Ulverston, the shopping facilities in Barrow-in-Furness, the beaches on the Furness Coast and the outdoor activities at Coniston and Grizedale Fores in the Lake District are all just a short drive away.
An excellent Roa Island cottage base, for friends and family alike.
