  • "Lovely property with a home from home experience."

    Lovely big garden. Neighbours were wonderful and told us all the best places around the area and also the little walk 50 yards from the property. Only drawer back was there was no pathway on the roadside so had to walk through fields which was great for us but maybe not for someone less able. Beautiful village of Broughton only 5 minutes drive which has a lovely bakery and butchers and some nice pubs.

  • "A spacious clean cottage with lovely gardens for the dog."

    You are greeted with a welcome pack of goodies for both humans and canines. The conservatory is ideal for relaxing in and the fire makes the colder nights more cosy. Some of the low beams can be tricky when most of you are over 6 foot tall but still an enjoyable stay. We would definitely come here again.

  • "We had a great week away in this property."

    It was clean, spacious & well stocked [with cooking utensils/ towels etc]. The owners were welcoming and friendly; the book of local walks we borrowed were brilliant. Most of all, we enjoyed the large garden / patio furniture. Lots of space for our group to sit out and chill. I would happily go back!

    Lovely house. Plenty of space for a family. Good base for exploring the area. If I have to say anything negative it is the pluming. A few things need attention but apart from that we had the best time

The accommodation is laid out over three floors with two boutique hotel style double bedrooms, both with en-suite bathrooms, on the first floor with views out to the Dutton estuary.

At the top of the house, there's a large bedroom with 4 single beds - ideal for children - and a bathroom with bathtub, hand basin and WC.

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.
