About Stokers at Heights View

Stokers at Heights View is a comfortable welcoming holiday home in a fantastic location. With space for up to eight people in three rooms (or ten with the use of the sofa bed) plus travel cot, it is the ideal base for a couple, family, or group visiting the Lake District National Park. Not only is it close to leading Lakes attractions, but it is also within easy reach of the beaches at Morecambe Bay and Grange-over-Sands. The Anglers Arms, a favourite pub with visitors and locals for its variety of ales and excellent menu, is just a short walk away, and the village has a post office/local store, so you do not have to use the car just to get some milk or the newspaper.

Haverthwaite is a small village that is best known as home to the famous Lakeland and Haverthwaite Steam Railway Museum - one of the Lake District’s most popular attractions. You do not have to be a train buff to appreciate the enduring style of a steam train, and a journey on one is a fantastic effortless way to sightsee. The station also has a tea room, picnic area and a fun children’s play area, and being just across the road from Stokers means you can pop over whenever you like while the Lakeland Motor Museum is a few minutes walk away. It is a short railway journey to the Lakeside station where you can find the award-winning Lakeside Aquarium which boasts the most extensive collection of freshwater fish in the UK. Also nearby by car are Sizergh Castle, Townend, and the World Peace Temple at the Manjushri Buddhist Centre which is housed in the impressive Victorian Gothic Conishead Priory.

Ulverston is a pretty market town around six miles from Stokers at Heights View. It offers a wide variety of shops, cafes, pubs and amenities. Stan Laurel, of the famous Laurel and Hardy film duo, was born there and there is a museum celebrating his work and life. Ulverston and the South Lakes area have several good museums showcasing life in the area over the centuries, like the old Bobbin Mill in Stott Park and Gleaston Water Mill. A walk to the top of Hoad Hill and, if it is open, up the Hoad Monument, will reward you with incredible views of the surrounding area that reach as far as Blackpool Tower on a clear day.

The Lake District National Park is a popular destination for visitors who enjoy being outdoors. While some larger villages and towns can be quite busy, particularly in summer, Haverthwaite is always relaxed and calm, and there are lots of lovely walks where you may not see another person at all! High Nibthwaite at the southern tip of Coniston Water is around eight miles from the house, while you can access Windermere - arguably the most magnificent of the lakes - less than four miles away in Lakeside.

The Lake District National Park is a spectacularly beautiful part of Britain and Stokers at Heights View is a lovely place to stay while you are visiting.

Location (The Lake District)

Accommodation Comprises:

Stokers at Heights View is a bungalow, so accommodation is all on one level and there are just three internal stairs to the utility room and third bedroom. The windows are triple glazed and the entire house has central heating so it remains toasty and warm even in winter.

  • A spacious living room has several comfortable couches and armchairs so there is ample seating even if you have a full house. One of the sofas opens out into a small double bed.
  • A dining area is attached to the kitchen and has lovely garden views.
  • The open plan kitchen/diner is as suitable for a lazy family breakfast as it is for dinner to celebrate a special occasion. The fitted kitchen is very well equipped with a full complement of utensils, crockery and cutlery, and has a dishwasher to make tidying up a breeze.
  • A separate utility room houses a washing machine, tumble drier, iron and ironing board, and is a handy place for storing muddy boots.
  • The largest bedroom is a family room that sleeps three people in a king-sized and a single bed. It has proper storage, bedside tables and reading lights.
  • The triple room has bunk beds and a single bed which can be folded away if not required. All mattresses in this room are good quality full size singles. This room is a walk through to the kitchen and utility room, so may not be suitable for very young children.
  • The master bedroom has a king-sized bed, and benefits from an en-suite shower room with shower, WC and handbasin.
  • The family bathroom has a generously sized bath with shower attachment, WC and handbasin.

Outside: The mature landscaped garden attracts a variety of birds. There is off street parking for up to four cars.
