    “First off. We really enjoyed our time at Millwood Manor.”

    It was the first time in 4 years that my 84 year old mother had seen our children and the reunion was special. The entire group was excited for the stay, and I had shared the listing with them all before we arrived. Overall, the property did not live up to the hype. But again, we all really enjoyed our stay and the house gave us plenty to talk about. Here’s how it could be improved: 1) We arrived in the dark and the house looked grim and forbidding from the outside. A simple photosensitive ...

    It was the first time in 4 years that my 84 year old mother had seen our children and the reunion was special. The entire group was excited for the stay, and I had shared the listing with them all before we arrived. Overall, the property did not live up to the hype. But again, we all really enjoyed our stay and the house gave us plenty to talk about. Here’s how it could be improved: 1) We arrived in the dark and the house looked grim and forbidding from the outside. A simple photosensitive outside light would have made the first impression so much warmer. 2) The front door has seen many better days and sticks as you try and open it. It requires a big shove and makes a squeal like a banshee. 3) The house was chilly upon arrival. The thermostats were all set to 17C, so the first impression was of cold and damp. 4) Nice touches like the bread, milk, juice and biscuits, plus fire materials won some goodwill back. If the fires had been laid and the ‘welcome’ basket presented as a ‘welcome’ all could have been forgiven. 5) as per the pictures, the house is arresting and quirky. The hall and the main bathroom are the highlights. Having the dead light bulbs replaced in the ceiling lights would have really shown the hall off in all it’s glory. 6) The bedrooms were from a different time - damp patches, on the walls, musty smellsand saggy beds. 7) Location is great, lovely walks through the woods and the wild garlic carpets and bluebells were delightful. 8) Of the three vacuum cleaners in the property only one worked (one made everything dirtier). 9) The house had pretty much everything we needed, save some cleaning clothes. 10) Broadband speeds were in the single digits, but stable. If you need to jump on a Teams call, you might want to bring a Starlink or OneWeb. Basically, this is a lovely, quirky property that could be amazing. It just needs some TLC and and it’s windows cleaned.

The property

Settled on the outskirts of the town of Dalton-in-Furness, Cumbria is the Grade II listed Millwood Manor. This impressive, dog-friendly, historic holiday home benefits from extensive grounds with lawn, multi-level patio and furniture, ample off-road parking, a spectacular location near the coast and the adventure-filled Lake District National Park and four well-appointed bedrooms sleeping up to twelve guests; perfect for families or friends gathering in Cumbria. Cross the threshold and unwind in either of the sitting rooms which boast a soothing woodburning stove or crackling open fire, idyllic places to warm your feet in front of the TV after a day full of exploration. Allow the designated chef of the group to whip up a storm in the fully-equipped kitchen fitted with an electric range cooker and sample their culinary creations in the formal dining room with seating for the whole group. Reminisce on the cherished memories you have created so far before stepping outside to soak up the last of the sun on the patio where you can raise a glass of your favourite tipple to your holiday. When the sky darkens, head up to the first floor to wash off the day in either the bathroom or shower room ahead of catching your rest in one of four bedrooms; choose from a double, or three family rooms with super-king-size, doubles, and singles. Find local amenities in the heart of Dalton-in-Furness home to a variety of stores and pubs as well as a quaint castle. Alternatively immerse yourself in history at the 12th-century ruins of Furness Abbey or The Dock Museum in Barrow-in-Furness, which is also home to Biggar Bank, Sandy Gap and Walney Island Beach with views across the sea. Follow the coast north to find the National Trust’s Haws National Nature Reserve where you can take scenic coastal walks with your beloved canine companion through the dunes on Roanhead Beach with views across to Millom. Take a short drive into the Lake District National Park to explore the famed lake town of Windermere, where you can take to the water on kayaks, paddle boards or simply admire the views by boat, and Coniston where the brave can try to summit The Old Man of Coniston for breath-taking views. Experience the wonders of the Lake District and Cumbria at Millwood Manor.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £500.

About the location

DALTON-IN-FURNESS

Ulverston 5 miles.

The ancient town of Dalton-in-Furness lies in a narrow valley on that part of the Furness Peninsula which extends deep into Morecambe Bay. Once the leading town of Furness, Dalton has a good selection of shops, restaurants and pubs. The architecture of the town includes some interesting buildings in and around the market place, as well as an elegant Victorian drinking fountain, the market cross and slabs of stone used for fish drying in the 19th century. The 14th century pele tower, known as Dalton Castle, was originally a place of refuge for the monks of nearby Furness Abbey, an impressive sandstone ruin nestling in a peaceful wooded valley. Within easy reach of the town are the South Lakes Wild Animal Park, the world's only Laurel and Hardy museum at Ulverston and the Haventhwaite Steam Railway which runs to Lakeside, where you can board a steam train for Bowness or Ambleside. Just north of Dalton-in-Furness is the stunning Duddon Estuary and Duddon Valley, with Cartmel, Holker Hall and Grizedale Forest within easy reach. Situated on the edge of the Lake District National Park, and surrounded by mountains and beaches, this area is ideal for walkers, cyclists and nature lovers.
