  • “The website does not mention that the cottage fronts on to the main road through the village.”

    Not only is the road quite well used and therefore noisy, but there is a give way sign directly outside the cottage instructing traffic to give way to oncoming traffic. This means that vehicles stop directly in view of the windows limiting privacy and that they stop directly opposite the entrance to the parking area beside the house. The entrance is extremely narrow (my car's sensors beeped every time we drove in and out) and tight especially when turning left off the road. This is not such a ...

    Not only is the road quite well used and therefore noisy, but there is a give way sign directly outside the cottage instructing traffic to give way to oncoming traffic. This means that vehicles stop directly in view of the windows limiting privacy and that they stop directly opposite the entrance to the parking area beside the house. The entrance is extremely narrow (my car's sensors beeped every time we drove in and out) and tight especially when turning left off the road. This is not such a problem if no traffic coming from the village has stopped to give way to oncoming cars (as you are then able to swing wide to turn left) but, when they have, it really limits the turning circle into the driveway, so much so that I scraped the lower part of the passenger door on the left side of my car on a stone that juts out from the bottom of the stone wall (that was not visible in the mirrors etc). It was not clear where the on-road parking that is mentioned on the website is. It was a narrow busy road and we would not have risked parking our car there. I would warn any drivers of SUVs or estate cars to think twice before booking the house for this reason.

The property

An outstanding, detached, 18th century farmhouse located in its own grounds on the edge of the lovely Lakeland village of Broughton-in-Furness, the gateway to the beautiful Duddon Valley.

This Broughton-in-Furness cottage has been fully renovated and benefits from two years of restoration work by the current owners.

Full of character, the accommodation at this Broughton-in-Furness cottage includes a delightful sitting room with a warm and cosy woodburning stove, a separate dining room, a spacious, well-equipped kitchen, a main bathroom with lovely corner bath and four comfortable bedrooms, all of which combine to provide a quality holiday home of real merit.

Outside, this Broughton-in-Furness cottage has two garden areas, which are perfect for relaxing in with a cold drink.

A short walk from this Broughton-in-Furness cottage is a charming village, with a square lined with Georgian houses, pubs and restaurants.

Just six miles away is Coniston Water, and nearby for the more energetic there are the challenging fells of The Old Man of Coniston and Wetherlam.

Visit the market town of Ulverston, or explore a little further on the coastline to Ennerdale and the magnificent Scafell Pike, the tallest point in England.

A wonderful Broughton-in-Furness cottage, to be enjoyed at any time of the year.

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.
