High Wallabarrow Cottage, Ulpha, Broughton-in-Furness, Cumbria (Sleeps 1-5)

Set in the Duddon Valley, a hidden jewel of Lakeland, Wallabarrow holiday cottage lies in a remote unspoilt corner of the Lake District National Park in Cumbria.

The self catering holiday cottage is cosy all year round. Well behaved dogs are welcome and must always be under control as they are likely to encounter sheep, cows, horses, chickens, rabbits, working dogs and young children on a daily basis!

The self catering holiday cottage accommodation comprises a newly fitted cottage kitchen with views to the Dunnerdale Fells and 'Caw'; two bedrooms, a family room upstairs with a king-size bed and a single bed (stairgate available) and a single bedroom downstairs with a four-foot bed. In addition, there is a full-size futon in the living room downstairs, where there is a colour TV with Freesat and DVD player. A stable door looks out onto the shared garden and up to the fells. The bathroom is downstairs and has a shower over the bath.

High Wallabarrow is a traditional hill farm owned by the National Trust, situated at the end of a quiet no-through road with only footpaths and bridleways beyond. The cottage nestles below the impressive Wallabarrow Crag (1,000ft) there are wonderful walks straight from the door, ranging from low-level riverside and woodland walks to the higher fells, including Harter Fell and the Coniston range.

The 16th century Newfield Inn, open all day serving good food and real ales, is a delightful 15-minute walk through Wallabarrow Woods and across the River Duddon. Also, the Blacksmiths Arms at Broughton Mills (four miles) serves excellent food.
