Converted from a 16th century Bobbin Mill, the cottage is located in a quiet area close to the southern tip of Lake Windermere
Sparks Bridge is within 3 miles of Newby Bridge and is 5 miles from the southern tip of Windermere and 2 miles from Coniston Water. It is an ideal location to visit the South Lakes and the nearby Morecambe Bay and enjoy the peaceful country lanes away from the honey pots of Windermere. Close by there is the South Lakeland Animal Park and Aquarium to keep the children entertained and the village of Windermere is only a 20 minute drive.

Had a great holiday, based here, convenient for lakes and coast. Very pretty village with two pubs, both with food service and dog friendly.
Cottage itself, was clean and well equipped, even toilet rolls and cleaning stuff supplied. The lounge and kitchen are upstairs, with bedrooms below and worked fine for us.

difficult to find fault with the cottage and facilities. met all our expectations.
Great value in a good location

The cottage has everything you need and the kitchen is well equipped, only small downsides are that there is a slight smell of damp on the lower level, a minimal amount of storage in the bedrooms and the red carpet is a nightmare to keep clean. On the upside it is warm, comfortable and a plentiful supply of hot water and the location is good for Coniston and Windermere. The cottage also has small rear and front secure gardens which was great for letting out our dog. There is also a small set of garden chairs and table stored in the utility. We really enjoyed our time at Laurel Cottage and hope to go back again next year.
June in the Lakes

Not only did the description of the accommodation on line meet of expectations, it exceeded them. This is a fabulously well appointed and charming little cottage, set in an equally charming village. Our reason for picking this place was principally that it was dog friendly, but also that it was close enough to the main attractions of the South Lakes, without being right in them. Clean, comfortable and well laid out, it ticked all the right boxes. It was also serviced by a very helpful lady who had the fore thought to turn the heating up a notch prior to our arrival, as it was a little on the cool side back then.

Excellent cottage, very well decorated and lovely location
Left on 09/27/2012 for a stay in September 2012 | Ian and Susan Welton
This is a lovely cottage with ample room for a family of four. It has been furnished and decorated to a very high standard. It is a little way from the house to the lakes and a car is essential. There is a reserved parking space to the rear, but roadside parking is allowed. Easy access to the south lakes and good road links for exploring. A dog is allowed in the property at an extra charge. All in all a thoroughly enjoyable holiday and would not hesitate to book there again.

Comfortable and relaxing home for a week!

Initially we were a little worried by the arrival procedure for the cottage, it seemed very vague and made us slightly wary, but, it was actually a very smooth and efficient way. The cottage was (as advertised) very easy to find and the instructions we were given were very easy to follow.
We were extremely pleased with the presentation of the cottage, the decor is simple yet homely and we were provided with everything we could have possibly needed. The welcome pack was in an easy to see place and included helpful advice on the nearest amenities etc...
The cottage itself was kept immaculately, both the bathrooms and the kitchen were hygienic and ready for our arrival. We had requested a travel cot for our newborn baby and this was provided with brand new, unused bedding. Our only issue with this was there was not much space for the cot and it had to be erected under a window, which was a little drafty.
We visited the pub just on the road twice during our stay, for a lunch and dinner and the food was delicious, reasonably priced and quick - we would recommend at least one visit here. The nearby town of Ulverston (10/15 mins drive) is also delightful and has a range of quaint shops alongside more conventional convenience stores (Co-op and Tesco). The people of both Spark Bridge and Ulverston made us feel very welcome, and everyone we came across were both polite and friendly.
The only negative aspects of our break would be, that from the cottage there is not really much of a view, but you only have to step out of the front door and cross the road to be on the river edge. And the ghastly hum of the water system, but after a couple of days we had acquainted ourselves with that also. The bed in the master bedroom is also very very soft! These were minor issues in what was a really lovely week.

Stayed as part of a short break. Located 20 minutes from Windermere and other attractions. Friendly people and very comfortable surroundings. Highly recommended.

A fantastic find, great location and excellent value!

A really very pleasant cottage in a quiet village with a great pub. Only a few miles away from the the lakes attractions, but away from the main tourist routes.
Cottage is immaculate and totally equipped, even towels and tea towels.
