Thank you for the lovely comments, your hosts Steve & Linda.
Situated near Coniston Water, a charming 17thC oak-beamed cottage, log fires, lots of original features, superb decor, warm, friendly welcome and relaxed atmosphere. Within easy reach of central, southern and western fells. Dating back to the early 1600's, Pomona nestles in the picturesque Crake valley just a short drive from the market town of Ulverston, birth place of Stan Laurel. Surrounded by unspoilt countryside in an area of outstanding beauty with panoramic views across the valley towards Grizedale forest.
The house boasts many original features and is furnished to an exceptional standard with each room having its own theme. There is an additional sumptuous TV lounge for our guests to relax and unwind. Excellent breakfast freshly cooked to order, packed lunch can be provided upon request. We are walker and biker friendly with secure bike storage and drying facilities and have a selection of walking books and maps for guests to use.
Your room will be available from 16.00 and we can accommodate arrivals up to 22.00. There are several country inns within the area, two within walking distance, all serving excellent food.
Children welcome from age 12.
