About Rosalind Simon
I have lived in the Furness area all my life and it's been a great place to raise our two boys. I love travelling, reading, cooking, theatre trips and spending time with family and friends. I am a bit of a perfectionist and believe that if something is worth doing it's worth doing properly and this is reflected in the standard of our apartments and the service we provide. It's been lovely to welcome guests from all corners of the globe and introduce them to this beautiful area.

NIce, well appointed apartment in Lake District with very considerate hosts.
We stayed in this apartment for two nights recently and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The apartment is in central location of the town where you can walk to almost everything. We drove to nearby lakes and took a day long trip using "Freedom Pass" that allows you to hop on and hop off at different places on the lake. Ros and Tom are very attentive hosts and they have thought of all things a guest would need. I plan to come back again. -Atul
Thanks for the lovely review, Atul. We are delighted you were happy with everything and enjoyed your time in the Lake District.
We look forward to welcoming you again at a future date.
Best wishes to you and your family, Ros and Tom.
Immaculate apartment on the edge of the Lake District
Three of us stayed here for one night on the occasion of a local family wedding. From the very first email enquiry, Ros replied promptly, helpfully and fully. Information provided in advance was plentiful and accurate. On arrival, Ros met us, helped us unload the car and ensured we were happy with the security arrangements etc.
The apartment was even better than the photos suggested. From the smooth cotton bedding to the Denby crockery, coffee maker to bathroom toiletries, everything was of the best quality and finish, as well as being spotlessly clean. The welcome pack was extremely welcome after our 3 hour drive and was generous enough to provide a lunchtime snack and breakfast the following morning.
Ulverston on a Saturday night is always going to be noisy and we did hear passing traffic and the occasional rowdy pedestrians but the quality and level of comfort provided by the apartment outweighed these negative points.
If there's no parking on the street, there are alternative free options not far away.
Overall, highly recommended for a short or long stay in Ulverston. Thank you Ros.
Thank you for taking the time to submit this glowing review. We are delighted you were so happy with everything - we pride ourselves on the quality of our apartments and it's lovely when this is appreciated by our guests.
Thank you, also, for leaving everything so clean and tidy!
We would love to welcome you again should you be visiting the area.
The photographs do not do it justice ....
Simply "fantastic" ....wish I had booked for longer! ......perhaps next time !!!!
Thank you for submitting this wonderful review.
We would love to welcome you again for a longer stay - hopefully next time you will be luckier with the weather!
Ulverston's location close to the beautiful Lake District and Morecambe Bay means there is something to interest everyone of all ages, either in the town itself, or within easy travelling distance.
Some of the attractions around the town itself include the following:
Laurel and Hardy Museum
Ulverston is perhaps best known as the birthplace of Stan Laurel and you can see the statue of Laurel and Hardy outside the Coronation Hall.
Conishead Priory is home to one of the largest Buddhist communities in Europe. The Buddhist temple and historic mansion are set in 70 acres of beautiful woodland and parkland adjacent to Morecambe Bay. Guided tours are available and there is a café with indoor and outdoor seating.
One of Ulverston's iconic landmarks is the lighthouse shaped monument standing over the town on the top of Hoad Hill. Modelled on an early version of the Eddyson Lighthouse this was erected to commemorate the life of Sir John Barrow who was born at Dragley Beck, Ulverston in 1764. From humble beginnings, Sir John Barrow, naval administrator and traveller, went on to become the Second Secretary to the Admiralty charged with the running the British Navy.
A lovely walk takes you to the top of Hoad Hill where you can enjoy spectacular views over Ulverston and Morecambe Bay. It is possible to enter the monument and climb to the top; a flag indicates the days the monument is open.
Cumbria Crystal is one of the last remaining producers of hand-blown and hand-cut full lead English crystal. At the factory, located opposite Booths Supermarket, you can see the craftsman at work and also have the opportunity to buy the crystal at the factory shop.
Ulverston Leisure Centre
Located on Priory Road, Ulverston Leisure Centre boasts a 25m indoor swimming pool, new fitness gym, and Cumbria’s largest tennis centre. Visit: www.northcountryleisure.org.uk for more information.
Ulverston Canal and Canal Foot
No longer navigable, Ulverston Canal is said to be the deepest, widest and straightest canal in England. A walk along the canal towpath (approximately 1¼ miles) from Ulverston will bring you to Canal Foot and the Levens Estuary where you can enjoy the beautiful views across Morecambe bay.
Renowned as the birthplace of the Quaker movement, Swarthmoor Hall is a 16th century country house set in beautiful gardens and grounds. In the mid 17th century Judge Thomas Fell and his wife Margaret provided protection and hospitality for early Quakers, notably George Fox, its founding father, and allowed the Hall to be a headquarters for the movement.
Here you can enjoy a guided tour of the hall, a walk around the gardens or perhaps a snack or drink in the café.
Ulverston is a thriving market town with an array of restaurants and eateries catering for all tastes and budgets. A pleasant afternoon can be spent browsing Ulverston's small independent shops and stopping for coffee at one of the many coffee shops in the town.
The many festivals held in Ulverston throughout the year have given rise to the town being named the Festival Capital of Furness.
Of particular note is The Lantern Festival, held in September each year, which involves hundreds of local residents parading willow lanterns through the streets and culminates in a spectacular firework display, and the Dickensian Festival, usually held on the last week of November, during which the streets are lined with stalls selling all manner of goods and entertainment is provided by bands, singers and street performers dressed in Victorian costume.
