“Cross Yeat is a beautifully located property high on a hillside adjacent to the owners farm, looking across the Duddon valley.”
The Cottage is comfortable and well equipped, with all the usual bits and bobs, including a high chair and travel cot. There is a level lawn at the front with outside eating facilities. Ann, the owner, is attentive to detail, helpful when needed but otherwise is discrete and will give you peace and quiet, which is what Cross Yeat is all about. 5 minute drive to local post office with basic supplies (closed Tue), 10 minutes in 2 directions to good local pubs with good food (especially Blacksmiths Arms at Broughton Mills) and 20 minutes to more shops in Broughton in Furness. Lovely walking from the door or easy to access Coniston or Eskdale if need be. Ideal for a peaceful retreat.

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.
