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.

Previous visitors' comments about Gorse Bank:
The cottage was vey nice and very good location.
Mr Purcell, Bootle, December 2012
The house was very well equipped and close to some nice pubs and basic amenities which meant that despite New Year's weekend, we could easily get some bits and pieces we needed. Also the scenic beauties were only some 20 miles away from the cottage. The fireworks display at the town square was absolutely wonderful!
Dr Banerjee, Winchester, December 2011
Had a wonderful time. Cottage was excellent. Everything we needed was there and some things we did not expect. Owners very thoughtful people.
We hope to go back another time.
