Town: Resting on the estuary of Carmel Sands within the Crake Valley is the small village of Greenodd. Set on the borders of the Lake District National Park, this 18th Century town was once a thriving shipbuilding centre and a significant commercial port, exporting locally quarried limestone, gunpowder and copper. Today, Greenodd is a quiet residential town that maintains much of its charm and contains a good selection of shops and a local pub, The Ship, which provides a visible link to the village's history. Just three miles away is the ancient market town of Ulverston, which is famous for its street markets and festivals as well as boasting a wide range of shops, pubs and leisure facilities. It is also home to the only Laurel and Hardy museum in the world and is the birthplace of Stan Laurel. The stunning National Park is within easy reach, as are the towns of Coniston, Windermere and the beautiful Furness Coast with its golden beaches and good birdwatching opportunities.
Additional amenities include: high chair, cooker.Read more

Good area to stay- just outside the National Park but very easy to reach within 10 mins (car). Lakes are stunning. Property is quite small and over 3 floors with steep stairs. Parking on the road. However, it has everything we needed and the owners (who live next door) are very friendly and helpful but not obtrusive. Good value for money

We had a warm welcome, to the well thought out cottage. The owners had given a lot of care to the needs of the people staying. The surrounding countryside was beautiful, and we thoroughly enjoyed exploring. It was very nice that our dog was perfectly welcome too !

We arrived to be greeted by the owners of the cottage who had very kindly left fresh cream cakes and tea for us. The cottage was cleaned to a very high standard and fully equipped with all essentials for a comfy stay. The cottage is situated in a perfect location for exploring the southern and western lakes and coastal areas. Local amenities are good and Ulverston is only a short drive away for the bigger shopping experience.
We would recommend this cottage very highly and can't wait to return for another perfect holiday.

The service was really good. It was the first time that I'd booked with Sykes but I would recommend them. 1 Mount Pleasant Cottages was cosy and from the top floor had wonderful view of the river estuary. I would recommend the local fish and chip bar and Sizergh Low Barn. I like the fact it was within easy distance of a number of interesting place. What I like least was there was no resident's parking space although it wasn't a real problem during our stay.
Close to everything

Close to the lakes, various hiking and walking trails, as well as supermarkets and pubs. Perfect for a base in the lakes.

All three generations had a fabulous time staying in this cottage. We arrived to find a tea tray and cakes had been left for us, a lovely touch. The cottage was comfy and welcoming and in a great location for exploring the lakes. We loved the wood burner and the travel cot was in excellent condition. We would definately book here again! Thank you!

Ideal for two people - sleeps four in two bedrooms but that might be a bit cramped in the entrance/kitchen/diner (steep, narrow stairs).
Very friendly local pub doing good meals in village a minute's walk away; quiet backwater but with easy access to main road; on street parking sometimes a bit difficult.
Pleasant local walks and lots to see in the area.
Excellent value for money.
Driest week in the lakes!!

We had a great time in Greenodd and it made it even better with having no rain at all for the whole week we were there!! Not one day without a walk done, Greenodd is a perfect base when visiting the Lake district. And coming back to a comfy house with all home amenities you need was lovely.
