Woodside Barn Family Cottage description

Holiday home
This stone-built detached barn conversion in the beautiful, secluded hamlet of Pennington is located just three miles from the ancient market town of Ulverston. Lovingly restored, this fully renovated cottage offers high quality living space, with a spacious lounge with dining table and patio doors leading to beautiful gardens. There is also a well-equipped kitchen, two bedrooms – able to sleep four people - and two luxurious bathrooms.

Situated on the beautiful Lake District Peninsula, the scattered hamlet of Pennington is set in an area of gentle hills and unspoiled countryside. The start of the Haematite and Cumbrian Way footpaths are close by, as are the twin pubs at Great Urswick Tarn – locally renowned for their fine ales and good food. Nearby Ulverston is an ancient market town, which still holds a streetmarket every Thursday and Saturday. Today, this settlement is best known as a "festival town", with events throughout the year, and as the birthplace of Stan Laurel. As a result, it is now home to the only Laurel and Hardy museum in the world. Facilities there include a wide range of shops, pubs, and restaurants whilst all of the attractions of the National Park are within easy reach. Also close by is the Furness Coast, boasting sandy beaches and good birdwatching. Other attractions include the Ravenglass and Eskdale Railway, the South Lakes Wild Animal Park and Muncaster Castle.

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.

Electric storage heaters. Electric cooker, microwave, fridge, freezer, washing machine, TV, DVD, CD/radio. All fuel and power inc. in rent. Bed linen and towels inc. in rent. Cot and highchair available. Ample off road parking. Spacious patio and garden with furniture and BBQ. Sorry, no pets and no smoking. Free range eggs available. Shop 3 miles, pubs 2 miles.

The cottage was excellent, very peaceful and tranquil. Far better than we could ever have expected.
Mr Travis

Woodside Barn very clean and well maintained house throughout - better than some properties we've paid double the price for. The downstairs extra bathroom was a fantastic feature for a property of this size. The owner was a very friendly but discrete. The weather was beautiful so the garden made the holiday-sunny from dawn to dusk well maintained.
Mr Brooksbank

How beautiful the cottage was! The location was gorgeous and the owners were extremely helpful and polite, with nothing too much trouble. Loved the whole long weekend, kids loved it with plenty to do and we will definitely go again.
Mrs Cole

The owners were very helpful and welcoming, we felt very at home from the beginning. Cottage very well furnished and decorated and the gardens were lovely with plenty of seating. No hesitation in recommending this property to anybody who likes a more secluded area to stay but still have access to lots of tourist must sees.
Mr Harvey
October 2014
The overall standard of the cottage and its quite peaceful location were above our expectations. The welcome of pack of milk, eggs and biscuits left by the owners was a nice touch.

Had a lovely family break and felt very at home at Woodside Barn. Would recommend this cottage highly for a break away with family or friends.
Mrs Slezak
April 2014
Excellent location. Cottage is quiet with beautiful views but close to busier areas like the beach and mountain areas. Owners also live on site but are unobtrusive so we could still relax and enjoy our holiday. Very comfortable cottage and a good size for a family of four. We really liked the children's books and the DVDs in the cottage.
Mr Jansen
April 2014
The peace and quiet was lovely; it was wonderful to just sit in the garden and do nothing with only the birds and sheep to listen too. We couldn't of stayed in a nicer place, it was a haven.
Mr Kennedy
May 2014
A well-stocked, clean and roomy cottage in a picturesque location. The kitchen was excellent and even came with free eggs and milk. Good range of DVDs and books in the living room catering for all ages and a Wii console also provided.

Mr Mrs Haworth
March 2011
Woodside Barn was 5 star, It's the best quality cottage we've stayed at! The owners were very friendly and not at all intrusive. They kindly left us wine, fresh eggs and milk, which was much appreciated. There was so much to see and do and the surrounding area was ideal for walks. It's the only time we've left a holiday and all agreed we want to re-visit next year.
Mr Veitch

Woodside Barn supplied us with first class accommodation in a convenient location. South lakes Animal Park is located only a few miles away - a favourite with the kids. The owners attention to detail in the welcome pack, DVDs and games were all appreciated.

We were really impressed by the standard of the cottage, a very relaxing and cosy place. A good central spot where you didn't have to travel too far to see what you wanted with Lake Windermere only half hour away.

Finding places to stay with a two year old and ten month old is always a challenge. It was lovely to stay somewhere equipped with cot, high chair, stair gates and even plastic cutlery! The cottage was beautiful and the garden ideal for playing out. Well situated for days out including the south lakes animal park and aquarium. The owners were really helpful when we needed them and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Woodside Barn.

Can't fault this cottage. Excellent, cosy and great value for money.everything about the cottage was appreciated and nice welcome touch of fresh eggs qine and milk from the friendly owner who maintained privacy considering living on the same hamlet. Would recommend especially a xmas stay as so cosy and warm. Ulverston close for shops etc. But not too close....
December 2013
We had no contact from the owners on arrival, and had to phone them with a query, despite the fact, we discovered later, that they lived on site. The property was clean and spacious and just what we were expecting, though I feel the description of the bathroom as "luxury" is stretching the point a bit. It is a quiet location with plenty to do within a reasonable distance, the weather was poor so we didn't get the opportunity to explore the immediate area as much as we would normally. The building work going was a bit disconcerting as it would appear the holiday accommodation is being added to, if this is the case it will give it more the feel of a holiday complex. The biggest down side for me is the proximity of the wind turbines, and I cannot believe permission was given to site these monstrous white elephants in such an area. I live in a National Park and fear for its future if these things are allowed to spread.
Mrs Croom
June 2010
Cottage was lovely, everything was of a high standard; decor, furnishings, ornaments, pictures added to the very nice feel of the cottage, which we felt was very good value for money. The Wii and games/books at the cottage were a real bonus. Close to a really good pub for meals 'The Farmers Arms' in Ulverston. Although on the southern fringe of the Lake District it was very easy to access lots of interesting places.
Mr Mrs Pierce

Quiet and relaxing Lovely cottage and garden - like being in Springwatch with so many baby birds and feeding parents. The Welcome pack was very welcome after a long drive. Couldn't fault the accommodation or the friendliness of the owners. Will definitely book up again.

Excellent, comfortable cottage with all of the facilities you could need and more. Very quiet location surrounded by countryside and around 3 miles from Ulverston.
May 2014
Really nice barn conversion with awesome views and surroundings. Only downside is the remoteness. It really is slap bang in the middle of nowhere with only ulverston nearby for those sans voiture Steve was extremely friendly and gave us a free lift into town one night Excellent stay with great accommodation
July 2013
This was an outstanding cottage, set in a lovely location. The cottage had everything you needed a great home from home. Would highly recommend the whole complex.

December 2012
We had a fantastic time and our stay cannot be faulted. Everything about the cottage was superb and if you are considering booking this cottage, do not hesitate ! You will not regret it. Only the location was a bit awkward but don't let that put you off.
September 2011
A lovely welcome pack of eggs and wine were tasters of a wonderful stay at woodbarn. Cottage was well equipped with lost of extras like stair gate, Dvds and games for kids. Dalton animal park our family's favourite location- very closeby. No tumble drier but clothes soon dried on clothes horse and clothes line provided. Would go back tomorrow and see the many sites not yet visited!
December 2012
Probably the best cottage we've stayed in. Very well decorated and facilities are excellent.
