  • “This was an extremely well ...”
    This was an extremely well positioned holiday home for the south west lake district giving access to sca fell pike and the old man of coniston being only ten or twelve miles. However with everything in the Lake District always set out early!

The property

Broughton-in-Furness 1.3 miles.

An immaculately presented semi-detached cottage at the tip of the Lake District National Park close to the market town of Broughton-in-Furness.

This glorious cottage is steeped in delightful period features, being situated in the beautiful area of the Lake District, making it a superb cottage to spend time with family and friends.

The modern kitchen still holds lots of period features such as, wooden beams and stone-flagged floor, as well as comfort from the old range fireplace.

The sitting room has window seats with a large stone fireplace, with a woodburner, and a wonderful old latch door leading to the other rooms in the cottage.

The staircase is truly majestic, being wider than average with a twist, as well as being framed by a large leaded window.

The bedrooms, one with TV, are all spacious and beautifully presented with period fireplaces adding to the character of the property.

Outside there are lawned areas surrounded by trees and woodland gardens to enjoy with plenty of birdsong, making you feel that you are at the edge of a forest.

An ideal place to enjoy an alfresco drink or barbecue.

Close by, Broughton-in-Furness with its market square and old stocks, has a wide array of shops, cafes and inns to frequent.

The village bakery sells speciality breads and cakes and has a cosy café serving delicious breakfasts.

This cottage is at the base of the Duddon Valley, which is one of the most beautiful and less travelled areas of the Lake District itself.

There are plenty of wonderful hiking paths in this area, which originate from ancient monk’s trails having been used for transporting wool in the past.

Just 20 minutes’ drive away is the village of Coniston which nestles under the Old Man of Coniston, part of the Furness Fells.

Here you can enjoy a day walking as well as enjoying plenty of music, beer and food.

A day trip to Ulverston is recommended, where you can visit the Laurel and Hardy Museum or even the South Lakes Safari Zoo.

To the north-west you can also visit Eskdale or take a trip to Wasdale, for some lovely scenery and beautiful views across the countryside.

This delightful cottage is an ideal base for exploring the diverse area of the Lake District National Park 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.
