The Crook Romantic Cottage description

Holiday home
The Crook is a quaint semi-detached wing of the owner's home set in the heart of the village of Great Urswick, three miles from Ulverston. With one bedroom and a modern shower room, this cottage can sleep two people.The rest of the cottage is made up of an open plan living area with kitchen, dining area and sitting area. Outside is off road parking for one car and a decked patio garden with furniture. The Crook is a lovely, rural base for exploring the Lake District, and is an idea, romantic retreat.

Great Urswick, with its two characterful pubs and restaurant, is a hidden gem, a lovely village just two miles to the south of Ulverston. Along with its neighbour, Little Urswick, they lie on opposite sides of the same tarn. The tarn is a wonderful wildlife habitat with a whole host of water birds occupying its sheltered corner. Birkrigg Stone Circle is one of several prehistoric settlement sites in the surrounding countryside. Locally, the start of the Haematite and Cumbrian Way footpaths can be found. Nearby Ulverston is an ancient market town, which still holds a street market every Thursday and Saturday. Facilities include a wide range of shops, pubs and restaurants, a cinema and a leisure centre. All of the attractions of the Lake District National Park are easily reached. The Furness Coast boasts sandy beaches and good birdwatching. Windermere and Coniston are within easy reach, and nearby family attractions include the Haverthwaite and Lakeside Steam Railway, the South Lakes Wild Animal Park, Muncaster Castle and the Aquarium of the Lakes.

Impressive mountains, open fells and clear-water lakes, the Lake District has it all. From walking in the mountains to exhilarating watersports or just a gentle cruise on a steam-powered yacht, Cumbria is the perfect holiday destination.

This was the perfect cottage for two people! We had a lovely quiet week, the cottage had everything we needed and a very comfy bed. There are two excellent pubs in the village, and the village itself is very picturesque and peaceful. Highly recommended.

Everything provided was of a high quality-bedding, towels, kitchenware and cookware. The owner was very helpful without being the least bit intrusive. Will highly recommend the place.

A good base for seeing the local attractions. We were lucky to have good weather and were able to sit outside on the decking after our days out. The shower room was lovely.
Mrs Newton

A lovely cosy cottage as a base for exploring the South and West of the Lake District. The weather at the beginning of May was cold and very wet but the central heating worked well. Our host was very welcoming and helpful, and the cottage had everything we needed for a relaxing week.

The Crook was part of a barn conversion complex, it was very quiet and private. The balcony at the back of the property gave a lovely outside space. Excellent accommodation, highly recommended.

This is a delightful cottage in a lovely rural village. There is no sound of passing traffic and it is lovely and quiet. The owner stays next door with his family. They are a nice family and very helpful and friendly. Stayed here for 3 weeks and hope to return in the near future. It is a lovely cottage with all the mod cons. It is clean and tidy with bright decor and is suitable for a couple. The bed is extremely comfortable and the bedroom contains an ensuite toilet and shower. Excellent.

The best accommodation we had while in England. Could not fault anything, could easily live there on a permanent basis. The owners are nice people who sure know how to fit out accommodation to please. The local area is stunning, lovely walks abound and plenty of nice places to see only a short drive away. Best holiday my wife and I have ever had.

The cottage was a pleasure to come back to at night. The surrounding attractions were varied and good. The scenery was spectacular. If this is the usual standard of your properties - we will be booking again.
Mrs Colverson

This cottage was excellent; in fact it was the best equipped cottage we have ever stayed at. Every aspect of the cottage was first-class and the owner was a charming person and very helpful. We would safely recommend this property to anybody.
Mr Stephens

The cottage was ideally situated for our particular needs. It was also ideal for visiting the places that we wanted to see, going as far afield as Kendal and Ravenglass without difficulty. We loved the peninsula on which the cottage was located and particularly liked Great Urswick. There was nothing that we did not like about our holiday and, given the opportunity, we would happily return. As far as the cottage is concerned, it fully met our expectations and the owner, who lives next door, was very friendly and helpful.

The Crook is a beautiful cottage situated in a quiet village just to the south of the lakes. It is extremely well equipped and very comfortable, providing everything that a couple could need. The owner (next door) is charming and helpful. The Crook provides an excellent base from which to explore the lakes or to go walking, and a quiet refuge away from the main tourist areas to return to in the evening. Great Urswick is a picturesque village with two pubs, one of which serves good food. We would definitely stay in The Crook again when we return to the area.

The cottage is in a great place to visit Lakeland and provides a very good base to explore from. Lots of attractions within 20min drive.
Mr Coleman

The location of the cottage was central to all the places we wanted to visit around the lakes. The cottage was well equipped and very homely. The cottage was comfortable and was a good place to relax after a long day of touring the lakes. The owners made us feel very welcome and were helpful with information and places to visit and see. I will definitely stay at this cottage again when we visit the lake district next.

The cottage was superb and ideal for a romantic getaway. The village itself was lovely with the locals being very friendly towards us. The owner of the cottage was extremely helpful. I would highly recommend this place to anyone. Hope to go again.

The cottage was a lovely, warm, relaxing place to stay. It was close to the coast and not far to places such as Ambleside. Ulverston is a lovely town to saunter around. The cottage had everything we needed and more. The kitchen had everything we needed! Overall a perfect cottage for a perfect stay.
Mrs Hobbs

We particularly liked the peace and quiet of the area, and the easy access to Ulverston and the south lakes. There was a lovely walk from the cottage up to Birkrigg Common, where the view over Morcambe Bay was stunning.

Very peaceful location, 5 min drive to Ulverston. Comfortable cottage.
Mrs Bull
April 2014
The accomodation was excellent. I have stayed in a lot of holiday cottages and usually they are not quite as good as the photos. In this case the cottage was far better than the photos. It was excellent. Warm, comfortable and had been well thought out. It was also very well equipped. The bathroom turned out to be the best past, a lovely surprise. Fantastic location. I am a person who like variety but I would certainly thing of coming again. The owners where very welcoming but not intrusive. Thank you. An excellent week.

The cottage was warm, cosy and very peaceful. We live in a very quiet area in Dorset, so it is always a concern that our holiday accommodation may not be as quiet as at home. We need not have had any concerns regarding The Crook. The owner and his daughter were very friendly. The scenery was magnificent and the weather, kind to us.

Mrs Gatman

The cottage was five star and the owners very friendly and helpful without being overwhelming. The village was quaint and the people very friendly. The two pubs were welcoming and the food in the Gasgoine was excellent - would recommend this cottage/location to anyone.
August 2014
As expected from the website, cosy and very quiet. The duvet was too warm for us, we asked for another and got one, the young lady was very pleasant.
June 2015
Stayed here for ! week in June with my wife, and we were very pleased with our choice. The cottage was in a quiet location, was comfortable and had nearly everything one could ask for ( a light over the shower room mirror please). It makes a good base for exploring southern Lakeland and the local pub is 100 yards away ( but you wouldn't know it). There are local walks to be had offering good views of the coast, and all amenities are close by in Ulverston ( a lovely, small but lively market town).
August 2013
This was a perfect place for our get away to the Lakes. Although it is on the edge of the lake district it is in a lovely location surrounded by rolling hills and open countryside. Set in an ideal village location there is plenty to do all around. Within a few minutes you are into the traditional lakeland setting and all the well known beauty spots are within easy travelling distance. There are two lovely village pubs one of which was an awarding winning pub for food and is well worth a visit. Our hosts were warm and welcoming and the cottage was 5 star quality.
Mr Fern

A lovely homely and comfortable cottage situated in a quiet peaceful spot. We had everything that we required and it took us no time at all to settle in. We were made to feel very welcome. We would certainly consider choosing this cottage again if we decided to return to this part of the country.
