This unique, detached farmhouse near Ulverston, Cumbria, sleeps 12 people in six bedrooms.

Groffa Crag Farm is a delightful, detached farmhouse set less than 4 miles from the beautiful market town of Ulverston in Cumbria. With its unique accommodation across three floors, it offers six bedrooms, two with en-suites, and two family bathroom, providing accommodation for up to twelve people. There's also a ground floor cloakroom, two kitchens, one with a dining area, dual-aspect windows and excellent views, and two sitting rooms, both with cosy woodburners.

In addition to this, you'll also find a snug, seating 5 people, with a woodburner, meaning there's plenty of space here for the whole family. Outside is ample off road parking, bike storage, a lawned garden with terrace and furniture and even a small woodland area to the side and rear. Set under a mile from the borders of the Lake District National Park, and with exceptional views to the fells, Coniston Water and the coast, Groffa Crag Farm offers extended groups an excellent retreat.


I wish we could award 10 stars. This is a gorgeous, really clean, well equipped spacious holiday house. With a four generational family visit , this property was outstanding. An age range from two to 90 is not an easy remit . Groffa crag fits the bill for every one ! Quiet spaces, happy community spaces?.this place has it all. The views are outstanding, totally breathtaking and it's proximity to ulverston and other interesting places to visit, all contribute to making an unforgettable family holiday. Thank you

Beautiful stays here over the years. Many happy Memories in the making. We Absolutely love it and will be back.

Filthy house on arrival, steer clear of this one!
The house was disgustingly filthy on arrival! We had just had a 7 hour car journey with a toddler and then had to try and find a hotel with a room available at 8pm on a Friday evening, with a tired and hungry child. And the owner and the booking company Sykes Cottages had the nerve to refuse me a refund until I threatened legal action! Steer clear of this one!
