Find My Favourite Holiday Cottages in Ulverston

Holiday cottages in Ulverston are 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 Morecambe Bay. Both can be seen from Ulverston’s most distinctive historical landmark, Hoad Monument, which perches on a hillside overlooking the town. This is an excellent place for a self-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. This vibrant community celebrates beer, comedy, music, flags and fashion annually.

Thanks to its dramatic scenic location in the heart of the Furness Peninsula, Ulverston is perfect for visiting the Lake District’s glittering waters and misty mountains as well as 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, 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.
