    The cottage is on the road used as a "rat run" by people going to and from work. The house is double glazed, but the two front bedrooms are rather noisy. The village of Broughton has sufficient shops, including a very good butchers which also has vegetables and general groceries, and a good bakery and Post Office and Newsagent, so we didn't need to travel to shop. When we arrived, we were supplied with local bread and milk, butter, eggs and delicious home made marmelade. There was also a nice herb garden at the back.

The property

A beautiful 400-year old, Grade II listed, stone-built semi-detached cottage, set on the edge of the lovely Lakeland village of Broughton-in-Furness, the gateway to the beautiful Duddon Valley.

Fully extended and modernised, this Broughton-in-Furness cottage is full of character and style, and benefits from three years of restoration work by the current owners.

This Broughton-in-Furness cottage is a real delight, lovingly renovated and individually styled to create a wonderful holiday home of considerable merit.

Featuring a light and airy sitting room with woodburning stove, and an adjoining summer room, this Broughton-in-Furness cottage also offers a modern well-equipped kitchen, three lovely bedrooms and a first-class bathroom.

Outside, this Broughton-in-Furness cottage benefits from a lovely patio area accessed from the summer room, and a raised garden area with lawn and an apple tree.

A short walk from your cottage in Broughton-in-Furness is the charming village itself, with its beautiful square lined with Georgian houses, information centre, Broughton Village Bakery & Cafe, finalists in ITV's Britain's Best Bakery, an award-winning butcher with deli counter, a greengrocer, a Post Office, two petrol stations, four pubs, three of which serve food, and the award-winning Beswicks Restaurant.

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 along the coastline for sandy beaches at Haverigg and Silecroft or to Ennerdale and the magnificent Scafell Pike, the tallest point in England and probably the most beautiful area in Lakeland.

A wonderful Broughton-in-Furness 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.
