Oakbank Cottage is a beautifully-furnished and spacious Lakeland cottage, set in the Lake District's stunning Duddon Valley. There's a fabulous big kitchen-breakfast room with big glass patio doors onto a walled garden, where you can sit and listen to the rushing mountain stream and waterfall nearby. In addition to two double bedrooms (one en-suite) and two twins upstairs - with stunning brass beds - there is a single bedroom downstairs with shower/toilet next to it - so perfect for less mobile members of the family. A big, oak-beamed sitting room with loads of comfy sofas, books and games has a TV with the full Sky TV package. With its welcoming log-burning stove it's a terrific place to stay whatever the season - and there's free wifi for you as well as a house phone.

(Please note that from April to end of October, Oakbank Cottage has a Saturday changeover and a 7 night minimum booking or price.) This lovely and very well equipped cottage offers the best of both worlds - set back from the road and wonderfully peaceful, there are loads of things to see and do nearby. You've got fantastic walks from the door - including a 10 minute stroll through stunning scenery to the little old Post Office and Stores in Ulpha. From day trips to sandy beaches to a little steam train ride to the coast, from riding beautiful Cumbrian heavy horses to taking a boat trip on nearby Coniston Water, it's a brilliant holiday base for the whole family. Lake District favourites like Beatrix Potter's Hilltop Farm and Ambleside are within easy reach, yet this part of the Lakes is a lot less crowded, and dramatically beautiful. Our guests love coming home to Oakbank from a great day out in the Lakes. Nearby Broughton-in-Furness is a lovely little market town with terrific food shops selling the best local produce, and there are some excellent local inns where you and the family can enjoy great meals together. For essentials there's the little Post Office & Stores a stroll away, but Tesco delivers to the cottage too.More

About the neighbourhood
The Duddon Valley is one of the least crowded and most beautiful areas in Lake District. The Duddon River rushes through it, wide and shallow, with lovely old stone bridges across it and wide grassy areas that are perfect for picnics. The Lake District;s little Herdwick sheep graze in the valley and wander along the road. You are surrounded by dramatic mountain scenery with Lakeland farmhouses dotting the hillsides. It makes a brilliant base for a Lake District holiday as it feels remote and peaceful, yet there;s a little shop in the valley, the ancient little market town of Broughton-in-Furness a few miles away and plenty of atmospheric inns serving great food. The area is within easy reach of favourite Lake District attractions like Coniston, Beatrix Potte;s Hilltop Farm and the dramati...
