    Bank End cottage was once my fathers family home (in the 30’s) and I visited it many times as a child, the cottage has been beautify renovated and contains everything a family or couple could want. We were visiting from Australia where we have lived for over 33 years, the cottage is in our view perfectly placed for visiting the Lakes and has plenty of walks close by. Broughton in Furness a mile away is a beautiful country village with shops, cafes and pubs. The Blacksmiths Arms at Broughton Mills is a must to visit and the food and beer is excellent, was not impressed with the Cider though.

About the location

BROUGHTON-IN-FURNESS

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.
