We've just returned from a 3 night stay at Daisy Cottage. We have had a fabulous time! The terrace of cottages are very newly built, & have been finished to a very high standard. We took our 6 month old daughter, a highchair & travel cot were provided, & our baby monitor worked across both levels- meaning we could spend time in the hot tub with baby upstairs in bed! Everything was clean & good quality. The interiors are very luxurious. I enjoyed a hot bubble bath in our bedroom looking out over the field next to the cottage. We got "picky bits" in for dinner but ate out for lunch. We went to the Fishermans Arms once (quite basic but clean, & standard pub food) & The Old Farmhouse (excellent menu, lovely staff & great food) twice. We walked upto Hoad Monument, shaky legs once at the top but worth it for the views! Ulverston town centre has some good shops, a fab children's shop "Tantrum" where we spent a small fortune. There's a nice tea room & a couple of nice pubs where we saw some of the St Georges Day Festival performances. Across the road from the cottages there's a couple of fields you can cross to walk to the coast. We didn't walk on the beach as it was getting quite windy but it's an easy 5 minute walk, & we got to show our daughter the horses & cows in neighboring fields. Out of the cottage & right is a nice drive down further along the coast, where the beach is abit more accessible, & also out & left (towards Bardsea campsite) some good spots for walks on the coast, & an excuse for some homemade ice cream! We had a small a problem with the boiler stopping working on our second day. However, this was quickly resolved with the owners coming to speak to us in person, using a back up system & then resolving the issue themselves, by following instructions over the phone from an engineer. We were very impressed with how responsive the owners were & this was clearly an unforeseen circumstance. We were able to enjoy hot baths & the hot tubs after this. There is a coop about a 5 minute drive down the road if you need any extra supplies. There is also an excellent children's playground turn left at the junction just after signs for Aldingham Parish. Also noticed a decent playground at the leisure park for Bardsea campsite on our way home. We have already been looking at dates to return to the cottages, perhaps with friends next time too. There were people staying in the cottages next to us, but apart from friendly "hellos" in the mornings, we wouldn't have known anyone else was there. Really pleased we found such fabulous accommodation, owners who go out of their way to make sure you are comfortable is an added bonus. Thank you & see you again soon...

Amazing week spent here, cottage has everything you need, spacious, clean, comfortable, views are perfect & the hot tub was just what was needed at the end of busy days sightseeing! We are booking up to stay here for next year already! Just perfect!!
Stayed at this cottage last week for 4 nights and enjoyed our stay. The cottage has all the amenities you need however I feel it could benefit from a few extras such as hooks in the bathroom to hang a towel whilst showering and perhaps another shelf away from the shower to put toiletries that you would like to keep dry. Also the photographs show 2 settees and there was only 1 two seater so another chair or small settee would be nice so you can put your feet up at the end of the day. One of the blinds in the bedroom had been taken away for repair and a note explaining this would have been nice or some sort of alternative supplied. This was a specialist blind because of the shape of the window so not easily fixed we realised but it virtually rendered the bath useless because you couldn't get out without people on the road getting an eyeful! We had to hang a towel over the TV on a night to try and get some privacy. Also a lamp would be nice to have on at nighttime. The hot tub was lovely and nice and hot but the steps to get in are way too high and we couldn't use them. We did still get in however but it wasn't easy! We were a little disappointed as there didn't appear to be a pub within walking distance which is what we like to do on an evening, there was a pub further down the road but the road wasn't a safe road to walk on especially at night. We did see a closer pub on a back road but this appeared closed for the season. There was a definite lack of information in the cottage, loads of leaflets on attractions but no local info apart from telephone numbers. Don't get me wrong we did enjoy our stay but were a little disappointed with the area.
We spent our honeymoon here. 3 evenings in the cottage, 1 we went out for a posh meal. We explored the area for the rest of the time, bought potatoes from the nearby farm to cook which were lovely. Nice evening walk through the fields at the front and down to the beach. Such a nice break.
