Our cosy 19th century cottage connects the quirky market town of Ulverston with the South Lakeland countryside. Settle into a spacious double room, relax in the garden and enjoy the views!

The space

Our double guest room is at the front of our home, overlooking the Sir John Barrow monument on Hoad hill - one of our town's treasures! We are very lucky, being situated at the back of Ulverston, to have a large rear garden which backs onto fields. We are visited by lots of wildlife.. 49 species of birds in the last year as well as foxes, rabbits, frogs and lots more!

Guest access

You will have a private bedroom during your stay. All other spaces are shared. You are most welcome to watch t.v. in our 'snug' and enjoy the communal spaces (i.e. kitchen, bathroom) as you please. Our dearly loved garden backs onto fields and the town beck - feel free to enjoy our outside space.

Interaction with guests

We will be present during your stay and will be happy to answer questions etc. We could maybe even show you some local sights if you would like. We are happy to be social, or to give you space.. whatever suits you.

Other things to note

Chris teaches Tai Chi. If you would like to join us in our 7am daily Chinese yoga (Qi'gong) practices, you would be most welcome. These take place in our garden when possible.

Please use Ruth and Chris as your Airbnb for the Lakes district. They are the best at hosting we have found in our English holiday. From the start they are the warm, delightful people you want to meet in England. Their breakfast was as good as it gets. Their advice on where to visit was perfect. And we used their dinner recommendations both nights to a gourmet treat. Also, the bedroom, bathroom and wifi was very good. The outside garden was a relaxing and well done space to unwind after a long day sightseeing. If you want great conversation about anything, Ruth and Chris will supply the right mix of humor and intellectual discussion one needs. We will recommend this site until the eclipse and beyond, forever.

I only stayed with Chris and Ruth for one night but found them to be very friendly and accommodating. They have a warm and comfortable home with a great outlook. Chris was also very helpful with finding information for my travels around the area. And Fred was very friendly as well :)

Chris and Ruth are an amazing couple, helpful, kind and really easy to talk to. Although we had issues finding the place ((SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) put it in the middle of a field) they came and picked us up in a pub nearby. They gave us a really warm welcome and povided us with everything we needed. We had a fantastic stay at there place and enjoyed the conversations we had a lot. Delicious breakfast!

From the smiling face that greeted me as the door opened, to the time I left, Chris and Ruth were a joy to be around. Though I had never met them before, this was like staying with friends rather than a BnB arrangement. The room was light and airy and impeccably clean. Breakfast was scrummy - especially the cheesy crumpets, which will become part of my own breakfast repertoire. There is a delightful garden leading down from the house and lots of opportunities to spot the local wildlife. Ruth and Chris are the nicest couple you could wish to meet, and I can't recommend this place highly enough.

Best host in the Lake District. From a home cooked meal when I arrived to taking me out dancing these guys are the best!
