  • "We had a wonderful stay at the Anvil."

    Beds were really comfy and facilities all great. Only comment would be kitchen flooring needs replacing. Very bumpy and difficult to move bar stools on.

  • "Absolutely wonderful."

    The pictures do not begin to do it justice. It's far bigger than you think. Brilliantly located, in the little town / village with a great grocery shop, butchers and bakery as well as post office / newsagent - all less than 4 minute walk. Great for heading out to the coast or into the lakes proper. Couple of great walks from the back door, as well as too many to name a short or medium drive away. Would happily stay again. Host / Manager dealt with any queries etc with real speed and willingness to help but not at all intrusive etc. Brilliant.

Literally right on the doorstep there are a number of delightful amenities including a well-stocked Post Office and a pub, making this the ideal base for exploring the local area.

Step into the elegantly-presented cottage and the visitor is greeted by a warm and welcoming sitting room complete with comfy-looking sofas, an attractive gas woodburning-effect stove and a TV, a wonderful spot for chilling out in the cooler months and either catching up on each other’s news or enjoying some telly time watching your favourite programmes.

Step into the gorgeous kitchen/diner which is fully equipped with everything needed for a delicious family meal and when it’s time to serve up, take a seat at the informal breakfast bar or make a meal of it by sitting down at the stylish dining table, where you can look forward to long, leisurely meals together.

If the weather allows, then you can take the party outside into the enclosed courtyard where you can relax in comfort and enjoy some time alfresco.

A family bathroom with bath and separate walk-in shower gives you the choice of a relaxing soak in the bath or a quick dip in the shower.

In the morning, you can step outside and you’re within a short walk of the delights of Broughton-in-Furness which has some great shops and eateries and serves as a fantastic base for walking and hiking in the picturesque Lake District.

Head out for the day to places such as the Lake District Aquarium, South Lakes Zoo, Grizedale Forest and the World of Beatrix Potter, or why not enjoy a cruise on beautiful Lake Windermere?

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.
