  • "Rose Cottage has everything you need for a comfortable stay."

    Situated on a country lane with amazing views & was so relaxing not having to hear any traffic. Loved the wood burner which we used every night & has great WiFi connection. Had a meal at the Blacksmiths Arms after reading previous reviews & wasn’t disappointed, the food was excellent. Will definitely return.

  • "Rose Cottage was perfect no complaints from me or my family, we had a very relaxing break and in spite of the mixed weather and fuel (petrol & diesel situation) we still got around and a lovely cottage to return home too in the evenings, couldn't ask for more."

    Neighbours was very friendly too. The farmers next door sell very tasty eggs too a good way to start the day.

  • "Great spot , nice quiet picturesque valley, an easy reach to the central areas of the Lake District if that's what you fancy 20-45 minutes away."

    Pleasant small town 5-10 minutes drive away (great 45 minute walk through the local countryside) and a great little pub 5 minutes walk down the hill. Interesting fells in walking distance with a couple of summits to climb. I could have spent the whole week just investigating the local area. Very relaxing. Friendly hosts working the small hill side farm next door. Hope to come back one day. Thanks

    Immaculately clean, stunning views, really well stocked kitchen for cooking. The photos don’t do it justice. We loved our evening dips in the hot tub watching the sunset, can’t wait to come back.

  • "We had a superb time in this beautiful cottage."

    We were cosy and it was quite for a good rest. Great local walking and pub which has several open fires and great beer. The only problem was we needed another bathroom really or at least a loo. A manual would have been good about how to get the heating on and how to start the fire as we were useless. Recommend this charming place!

  • "The cottage is in a gorgeous secluded valley - the Lickle valley, in the SW Lakes - Far less visited than the rest of the Lakes but just as majestic - Close enough to drive to many of the sites of the southern and western Lake District, the fells, the southern lakes and the Cumbrian coast for a bracing walk - try St Bees Head or Ravenglass."

    The cottage is bigger inside than it looks with plenty of room for four or five people - plus we had two large dogs. The owners recently adapted the adjacent field into a communal garden and the dogs are welcome. This is accessed via an amazing new set of slate fronted steps beside the cottage - which the owners built themselves.The cottage is nestled amongst the old buildings of a working farm (c. 1746) - the owners live next door in the farm house and the adjacent cottage and sell fresh eggs and logs and kindling for the cottage's log burner. The cottage was renovated and upgraded by the family in the 1990s with traditional features restored. There's a photo album in the cottage cataloguing the restoration which is an interesting read and shows the care and effort involved. The cottage is really well equipped with a tumble drier and washer included - great for those who like to go out walking, rain or shine. There's a big kitchen table with 6 chairs - for family meals together. The shower is excellent as it has its own pump and although there is only one bathroom, as a group of four we had no problems with this. Rose cottage is located a couple of miles outside Broughton in Furness - one of a cluster of old country towns in the Furness peninsula - about 1/2 mile from the hamlet of Broughton Mills - When approaching the cottage on the road from Broughton in Furness look out for a 'logs and kindling for sale' sign on the left just as you come over the brow of the valley. On the map the location is called 'Lane End' and there is a sharp left hand turn off the road directly into the cottage's parking spot on the immediate left. You should recognise the view of the cottage straight away. The pub in Broughton Mills 10 mins walk further along the road is great - rustic and homely with four cosy rooms each with an open fire. The daughter of the cottage's owners works there amongst her many jobs and all of the staff are very friendly and attentive. The food is excellent and we would all recommend the lamb rump and the lamb Henry. The chef recently appeared on 'Master-chef Professionals' and it showed in the quality and presentation. We would recommend that you bring supplies for the first few days - particularly if you plan to prepare evening meals as the local opportunities for food shopping are few and far between and all closed on Sundays - though we would highly recommend the bakery/café, grocers and butcher shops - all side by side on the main street in Broughton in Furness - 2 mls away. The nearest biggish shops are in Dalton in Furness (7 mls) and superstores in Barrow (12 mls away). The only issue we had with the cottage was that the beds were a bit on the soft side for us - obviously a personal preference - but the fresh air and the peace and quiet helped sleeping. The sofas in the living room were also too low and too soft and we all found them hard to get up from once seated. They could do with a refresh in our opinion. Overall, we really loved the cottage and location and would highly recommend it to those looking for a good base for outdoor activities - there are excellent walks straight from the door - or for a tranquil, 'get away from it all' experience. We hope to re visit sometime very soon. Thanks to the owners for helping us to have a great break away. All the best from Nic, Val, Geraldine and Steve from the Peak District.

    Fantastic location, very well appointed, and lovely biscuits on arrival (and milk too!). The owners were great and got the high chair, stairgate, and cot out for us, so we had a stress free first family holiday. Lots of fluffy towels, tea towels, dishcloths, so we didn't need to pack those either. Bonus tumble dryer too.

The property

This charming cottage is situated in the hamlet Broughton Mills, 2 miles from the market town of Broughton-In-Furness.

Set on a working farm with stunning views of the Lickle Valley, Rose Cottage is a true home away from home, bringing you comfort and relaxation all-year-round.

Inside you will discover a characterful lounge with a woodburning stove, tucked away into a stone fireplace, and cream-coloured sofas which complement the traditional feel.

The kitchen/diner has a country cottage feel and makes a cosy place to join your loved ones, morning or night time, to discuss those up and coming adventures over a home-cooked meal.

Three bedrooms are decorated to a standard of quality, with well-coordinated furnishings and tiny traditional windows, so you can snuggle up in style after an adventure-filled day.

There is also a family bathroom complete with classic features, and a shower which is located over the bath, so all guests can get ready at ease.

Make the most of the small patio garden to the front and the use of a large grassy shared raised garden behind the house, a nice spot to rest on the furniture or gather for a barbecue with your loved ones.

Rose Cottage is within walking distance to local Blacksmith Arms pub, which serves lovely food, and only 2 miles from Broughton-In-Furness which has an array of shops, restaurants and a bakery.

The local area offers plenty of pleasant walks and opportunities to see local birds and wildlife.

A getaway not to be missed.

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.
