    “Well what a lovely cottage, ...”

    Well what a lovely cottage, everything we needed and more. We felt at home straight away and loved the village of Broughton, its bakery, and and friendly people. We took a roll of temporary fencing to secure an area in the garden for our dogs because as previous reviews stated, for dogs smaller than a labrador type there are wide railings to escape through. There is however a safe stoned area just outside the kitchen so we could have managed without fencing the garden but for our young Springer ...

    Well what a lovely cottage, everything we needed and more. We felt at home straight away and loved the village of Broughton, its bakery, and and friendly people. We took a roll of temporary fencing to secure an area in the garden for our dogs because as previous reviews stated, for dogs smaller than a labrador type there are wide railings to escape through. There is however a safe stoned area just outside the kitchen so we could have managed without fencing the garden but for our young Springer Spaniel and Boarder terrier it was an added bonus. The area was perfect, close to the Fells and also only 7 miles to the beautiful beach at Silecroft.

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.
