    "The house is blessed with a fantastic venue being right on the Square and handy for all the village amenities, including but not exclusively the Post Office, butchers, bakers, green grocers, the Square cafe, tourist information, art & craft centre, petrol station(s), AND the selection of pubs, with our favourite right on the Square, The Manor. We have stayed in lots of different accommodation in Broughton but Hillside definitely rates as one of the best, so warm and welcoming and well resourced. It was a first eating home cooked curry in the dining room in front of an open fire! Having stayed previously we appreciated the extra double bed in the family room and would love to come in summer to make the most of the new garden arrangements. Definitely self catering accommodation with much to recommend it, but could be tempted to keep it quiet so we can come again!

About the location


Millom 7.5 miles; Coniston 9 miles; Ulverston 9.5 miles.

Dating back to the 11th century, Broughton-in-Furness is situated in the south western corner of the Lake District and is just six miles from Coniston Water. There is much to please the visitor such as a pretty, cobbled square complete with a splendid horse chestnut tree, enclosed by shops, pubs and homes, many of them Georgian in origin. The village provides an ideal base for a walking or climbing holiday, with ample opportunity to explore the rugged beauty of the Duddon Valley and the quieter Lake District fells. Norman Nicholson, one of Britain's finest 20th century poets and William Wordsworth, both immortalised this area in their writing and poetry. The village was home to Branwell Bronte, brother of the Bronte sisters, for a short time. The Furness railway line runs from nearby Foxfield and makes for an ideal day out, travelling the west coast of Cumbria. Set amidst the charm of the Lake District and close to the sea, this attractive town makes an inspiring choice from which to further explore a magical heartland of silver lakes, lofty towering peaks and lonely heather clad moors.
