  • Mr Mcmurtrie

    “Lovely, clean and comfortable accommodation.”

    We liked that it was in a pleasant and quiet location but the main hotspots of the Lake District were easily accessed.

The property

A semi-detached, three-storey cottage, located in a quiet corner of Broughton-in-Furness on the quiet south west corner of the Lake District.

This cottage has been lovingly restored by the current owners to provide spacious, well-equipped accommodation which is ideal for a family or a group of friends wishing to get together and enjoy this largely undiscovered area.

This cottage features an open plan living area with a warm and cosy woodburning stove, a delightful summer room, a modern kitchen and four well laid out bedrooms.

Just a two-minute walk from the cottage is the charming town centre with its beautiful square lined with Georgian houses and the local pubs and restaurants.

Just six miles away is Coniston Water and for the more energetic there are the challenging fells of The Old Man of Coniston and Wetherlam, which offer a stiff challenge.

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 and probably the most beautiful area in Lakeland.

A wonderful cottage, to be enjoyed at any time of the year.

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.
