Halsteads is a “true” bungalow with all facilities on the same level inside the house, internal doorways are a standard 2ft 6″ width. There is a private driveway with ample parking for several cars and plenty of width for car doors to be fully opened and people assisted into or out of a vehicle.

From the driveway to the front door there is a series of nine steps with handrail on one side. However access from the driveway to the backdoor only involves three shallow steps at the front of the house and two (with handrail) by the back door as shown in the following photographs.

Kirkby-in-Furness is a quiet rural location away from the main tourist hotspots of the Lake District. Local businesses include two pubs and a cafe (open Sun-Tue).

It is an ideal location to explore the Furness Peninsular, Western Lakes & Duddon valley.

It is only 15 minutes away from the festival market town of Ulverston, 20 minutes from Coniston or Barrow and 45 minutes from the Central Lakes. Travel to Halsteads is easy even in peak holiday season; the majority of the route on trunk roads through lovely scenery after leaving the motorway.
