May 2022
Both my partner and I are Kadampa Buddhists and so chose Ulverston to visit as the Buddhist Centre, Manjushri has a special place in our hearts. Not only did we need somewhere nearby but we needed a place that would accept dogs and that was cosy and welcoming to stay. Shirley's cottage now also has a special place in our hearts it is clean, cosy, and the perfect location for our stay. We'd definitely choose to stay there again and may look into it for 2023. Thank you for the attention to detail. 10/10

Hawthorn Cottage definitely exceeded our expectations,the cottage was great in an ideal position for exploring the Lake District and just a five minute walk into Ulveston town and it's numerous excellent pubs and restaurants.. Definitely a 10 out of 10.

Third time I have stayed in this cottage.. I think that says it all...

Really comfortable and very well equipped cottage in a fabulous quiet location, yet very close to local shops, restaurants etc.. The wood burner, very comfortable king sized bed and huge! bath, along with all the kind touches, tea/coffee/milk/biscuits etc, helped us to have just the kind of quiet autumn break we needed

Fabulous cosy cottage in an ideal position for the pubs, restaurants and shops of Ulverston.. Easy access to great walking in the South Western Lakeland fells and coastal walks.
Mrs West

One look at the guest book shows our delight at finding this cottage is shared by many others.. It is a few minutes’ walk to the town centre and the cottage’s position gives lovely views from the back garden to Hoad Hill and the Sir John Barrow monument as well as over town cottages and houses below. The cottage itself is a stylish and well thought out conversion, where - thank you - things are easy to find and to use. It is light (lovely kitchen), warm and comfortable, and having Vicki next door with the keys or to answer questions is a bonus. Ulverston is great, a welcoming small town with individual shops, and we particularly like Gillams and The Mad Hatter cafes as well as The Northern Line gift shop. There are plenty of walks within the town, or to the coastline of Morecombe Bay along the canal, plus further afield along the Cumbrian Way. Car users are spoiled for choice - to the Dock Museum in Barrow, or up to the lakeside of Windermere and further afield.

Lovely and exceptionally clean cottage.. Lots of natural light from the large windows in the back that overlook the garden and the hillsides. The furnishings and design are wonderful. Everything needed was provided. Andrew and Vicky are very kind and are excellent hosts; they are just next door. The woodburning stove provided a lovely fire. There is a fireplace upstairs, as well. Keep an eye out for cars and bicyclists as the front door is very near the one lane road. This is a very special place and is within walking distance (5 mins) to the village.

August 2018
Have visited Hawthorne cottage twice before and we love it.. Vicky is a wonderful host and we get a lovely welcome. Tea , coffee , milk, biscuits and beautiful fresh flowers are provided. The cottage is so cosy and only 2 minutes from the main town centre. Ulverston is very dog friendly so the whole holiday was perfect for us. We will definitely be returning !

Parking permit allows use of space a few hundred metres away.. Door opens directly on to road and care needs to be taken existing, especially with dog
Mrs Nugent

We have been to Hawthorn cottage two years running now.. Such a lovely little bolt hole in a lovely town. We were so disappointed yesterday when we went to book and saw that someone else had beaten us to the dates we like. We will be back to this place however. So homely, lovely view from the back kitchen.
Mrs Boddy

Lovely cottage , equipped with all you might need .. Nice bathroom , comfy bed and well fitted kitchen . Near shops and restaurants. Lakes are easily accessible but also a good view from the kitchen !

A very well organised and cared for holiday home.. Good support from Vicki and family. We thoroughly enjoyed our time in Ulverston.
Mr Orrell

The cottage was well presented and extremely clean.. Everything needed was to hand, and ideal for two and a dog. Ulverston was surprisingly nice with good walks nearby, and of course the lakes on its doorstep.
Mrs Coburn

This is such a lovely place to stay as the cottage is very thoughtfully equipped and laid out.. It is near the town but relatively quiet. There is a small garden for the dog. Vicki next door to help if something goes wrong. Perfect!
July 2016
Hawthorn cottage is a delightful find in a great town for visiting the Lake District. Its location is amazing. Less than 500 yards from the market cross in the middle of town, yet the views and sense of peace from the garden are truly rural. The cottage is very well equipped, with all the mod cons you could want, including very good wifi. The bathroom has a fab shower and awesome bath. Its very nicely finished. The same applies to a really spacious bedroom with a comfortable bed and good quality linen. Vicky and family (who live next door) provide a really good welcome. They genuinely are nice folk who are interested in making sure your visit is a good one. ..... and the weather was great. 'nuff said? You'll have a wonderful time here.
Mrs Stonier

Beautiful cottage, great people and a beautiful area. Everywhere was so quiet and clean. Plenty to do and see and fabulous walks for the dog. The bathroom was something from a 5 star hotel and the whole place was so well equipped,clean and comfy.
Mr Purves

A comfortable home from home with everything that you could want as a base to explore the Lake District.
Miss Gough
April 2016
Hawthorn Cottage was in a perfect location for nearby walks for the dog, from the doorstep. It had a perfect sized garden for a medium sized dog. The cottage had exceptional facilities; a fabulous double bath and amazing power shower, constantly supplying hot water. The log burner in the front room was perfect and nothing was missed. My partner particularly liked the addition of a dishwasher, allowing him to 'relax' a little more on holiday! The host was very friendly, helpful and only next door if we had any queries.
Mr Flynn

Everything was great! Hawthorn Cottage was ideal and just perfect for a quiet, cozy, weekend getaway. It is near to some nice attractions but, to be honest, I didn't really want to go very far. I did venture to Coniston and to the nearby Conishead Priory meditation centre, both of which had some nice spots for walking the dog.Tastefully decorated with comfortable furnishings appropriate to the character of the house. There is a pleasant view across Ulverston from the back garden. Curling up with a book, with a fire in the wood burner, was just perfect. The cottage is right by the road but it is not busy so it was nice and quiet, with mostly just birdsong audible.
Mr Craven
March 2016
We used to live in this town, in a similar cottage, and this made us feel as if we had come home. It is just lovely, so warm and cosy and perfectly situated. A real gem. Attention to detail is spot on, cleanliness is immaculate, and the hosts are as thoughtful and caring as can be. We loved this place and will stay here next time we are in town.
Ms Nock

Hawthorn Cottage was excellent. It had everything you could want and more. The cottage was immaculate, had a very comfortable bed and was situated in a great location. The owners of the cottage couldn't have been more helpful. We will definitely be returning .

We actually stayed at this cottage THREE separate times in 2015 as we are conducting extensive research prior to moving to the Furness area. Having previously stayed in other self catering properties and most of the hotels in Ulverston we know quite a lot about the competition. Hawthorn Cottage met and exceeded our expectations. It is close to the town centre but without the parking and noise issues. Vicki who manages the property and lives nearby has been very helpful and showed a genuine interest in our property search.
Mr Smith
January 2016
The cottage was perfect! It was extremely comfortable and a perfect walking distance to the town centre. The owner was wonderful; a good representative of the warm and kind people of Ulverston, she made sure we were well taken care of.
Mrs Clarke
January 2016
It was tastefully furnished and deceptively spacious, very cosy and spotlessly clean. The location was ideal - a couple of minutes walk into Ulverston town with pubs, tea shops, shops, and yet the cottage was quiet with minimal traffic on the road, and there was a pleasant outlook from the rear of the property.
Mrs Lafferty

This is one of the best I have stayed in.
Miss Brookes
December 2015
This cottage was stunning! Couldn't fault anything! Had a gorgeous log burner, and a quaint, cosy feel to the cottage! It was close to the town centre with all essentials on your doorstep and had easy access to South Lakes for long walks. Couldn't have asked for a better place to stay. We will definitely be returning. Thanks.
November 2015
An absolute delight! Fantastic spacious cottage with a lovely little garden. Lots of unexpected extras like fresh flowers, milk, coffee, sugar, tea etc upon arrival. Really welcoming. The cottage was very well equipped too. There was also a really helpful box of tourist information which provided some great ideas for walks and trips around the area. We had a dog with us so really good walk suggestions for guests. The town itself with shops and pubs literally a minutes walk away so great location. Would definitely recommend this cottage.
Mrs Webster

A very comfortable and charming cottage perfectly sited just outside of Ulverston town centre. It was very clean and tidy with a very welcoming owner too. There was a big comfortable bed and huge bath in the bathroom. Ulverston is a great town with lots to do, see and enjoy within walking distance of this super cottage.
Mr Murphy

An excellent location, exceptional owners and it was very quiet. It was spotlessly clean with everything you could need for your stay, just turn up with your clothes everything else is there.

Really loved this special little cottage. The owner and neighbour were really helpful - nothing was too much trouble. It was a great place from which to explore the Lake District.

Beautiful old cottage with traditional latched doors and a wood burning stove. Kitchen is modern and well-equipped - this is not one of those "self-catering" places where you discover too late that there's no corkscrew or egg cups. Dogs are welcome in downstairs area. There is an enclosed rear garden with views over the slate roofs of the little town to the hills beyond. A minute up the road and you are in open country with footpaths for dog-walking. Five minutes down the road is the market square with shops, pubs and restaurants.
Ms Goodhind

This is a lovely cottage, perfect for a couple, with everything provided that you could possibly need or want. The lady who looks after the cottage was wonderful and did everything she could to ensure we had a great stay.

Hawthorn cottage is described as a romantic retreat and on first impressions it appears to be the case that the description is pretty accurate. A clean and comfortable cottage in the town of Ulverston is potentially a great base from which to explore the Lakes without having the crowded feel of the National Park. We had planned to stay for a week but after 3 days the continual use of a JCB by the neighbours proved intolerable. Furthermore, the building site across the road which had closed when we arrived on Good Friday was poised to burst into action on Tuesday. We tried to contact the owner but did not get a reply and it transpired that the troublesome neighbours were her family anyway, so we cut our losses and left after 3 days. Sykes were helpful and this may be a good place to stay when all the building is completed but at the moment we could not recommend.
Ms Woodman

The cottage was welcoming, warm and furnished to a high standard. It was very comfortable, would love to go again very soon. Highly recommended.
March 2015
We loved Hawthorn Cottage. It was a characterful place with excellent furnishings and décor, as well as a wood burning stove. Ideal place for a short stroll into the fascinating town of Ulverston. The owner was friendly and helpful. There's a small garden and views from some windows too.

We had a very comfortable stay at Hawthorn Cottage. A friendly welcome, lots of visitor ideas/walking guides and a comfortable base for our holiday.
Miss Woodhead
November 2014
We loved our stay at Hawthorn Cottage. The location was perfect; only a 2 minute walk from the marketplace and convenience stores, and 7 minutes from the train station from where you can explore Barrow, the Cumbrian Coast, and further afield as far as Lancaster, Preston and Carlisle. The cottage was newly renovated and the perfect size for a romantic and peaceful break away. It was small enough to feel cosy while big enough for you both to escape each other for a couple of hours! The cottage had all the essentials you'd need. The log fire simply topped it off as well as the friendly neighbours and the garden wildlife! We were very happy with our rural retreat!
Mr Leitch
