About the property

3 bedroom, Bungalow accommodation with Mountain Views and private parking

Halsteads is situated in a quiet village in the South Lake District close to the coast as well as the fells. It is only 15 minutes away from the festival market town of Ulverston, 20 minutes from Coniston or Barrow and 45 minutes from the Central Lakes. Travel to Halsteads is easy even in peak holiday season; the majority of the route on trunk roads through lovely scenery after leaving the motorway.

There are three bedrooms - one king size, one double and one twin. In addition there is a quality sprung mattress sofa bed which can accommodate a further 2 guests (please supply your own double linen if using this).

There is a family bathroom with bath, washbasin, toilet and large shower. In addition there is a separate cloakroom toilet.

The kitchen is a large, country style fully equiped with all appliances, utensils and cookware.

There are two lounges - the largest with wood burning stove. The smaller day lounge with views of the fells has the sofabed which accommodate a further 2 visitors.

From the house there are spectacular views over Kirby Pool, the Duddon Estuary and Mosses and on a very clear day to the Isle of Man. Over thirty tops are visible including Coniston Old Man, Stickle Pike, Black Coombe and Scafell. It has a pastoral setting with sheep in the meadows behind.

Village amenities include two pubs, a railway station, Post Office and well stocked village shop, sports facilities and a children’s play park, churches and health centre. It is an excellent area for walking, cycling and wildlife as well as sightseeing and historical interest; the Cumbria Coastal path runs five minutes from the door. Banks and more extensive shopping and leisure facilities can be found in Ulverston or Barrow-in-Furness. Halsteads lies within the Tesco home delivery area for the convenience of internet shopping ordered from home to be delivered on your arrival.

Halsteads is particularly suitable for families or mixed age parties with elderly relatives or friends.

Best washing-up view in England!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at Halsteads many times over the last 11 years, often with friends and relatives coming along to join us for part of the week. It's the perfect chill-out venue with glorious views over the Duddon estuary and towards the Lakeland fells. The bungalow is incredibly well-equipped (better than our own home in some respects!) and there are plenty of games, jigsaws and books should the rain set in. But we've always been quite lucky with the weather and enjoy sitting outside drinking in the sun and the views. There are many wonderful walks nearby or further afield - with plenty of maps and leaflets as guides. Most people who stay at Halsteads make repeat visits.

Lovely, well equipped house with a superb view perfectly located on the edge of the Lake District

  • 5 of 5

Halsteads has superb views across the Duddon estuary. The kitchen is very well equipped. Kirkby is an excellent base with easy access into the heart of the Lake District and the coast but is located away from the crowds. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would definitely recommend it to others.
