  • "We had a great stay at High Kiln Bank cottage."

    Fantastic views in a wonderful part of the country. Did some great walks including the old man of Coniston and Dow crag. Cottage is run by lovely people who went out of their way to make sure we had everything we needed. Very comfortable and spacious. Great to hear the chickens in the morning.

  • "An amazing cottage, beautifully kept and super comfortable."

    Fantastic views across the valley, quiet and peaceful. Some winding steep roads to get to the cottage which made for an exciting drive but so worth it! But really once there, you don't really need to travel at all as there are so many fabulous walks nearby.I would highly recommend this property and it's friendly host.

  • "This is a magical place - a lovely old cottage with so many opportunities to engage with the environment, climb hills, paddle in rivers, stepping stones, see lakes, hill forts etc."

    Cottage was homely, roomy, well equipped and spacious. Perfect for 4 adults and two young children. And a large dog! It took a while to adjust to the lack of wifi and phone coverage and limited TV coverage - be prepared!- we would have preferred to be able to access the garden from the house, but it was still a wonderful space (only a short walk) to go to and sit or play. Pets and children welcome everywhere - we had some lovely lunches in the local pubs.

    So quiet and away from the crowds, with wildlife all around. Cottage was well equipped with everything we needed. Very friendly and helpful owners. A joy to have no phone coverage or internet in the house - so good to unwind and get away from it all. Thank you!

  • "An idyllic location with beautiful views of the valley from the gardens."

    Our hosts were very welcoming, plentiful supply of logs, a warm and comfortable cottage. Lovely walks straight from the door and a very peaceful spot. We especially loved the large, mature trees such as the magnificent Copper Beech outside our front door. The picnic benches in the orchard, again great views and being surrounded by birdsong.

  • "Lovely apartment in Dorset overlooking the beach."

    Clean and tidy on arrival and useful that they supplied fresh tea towels, sponge, j-cloth, bin bag and washing up liquid as well as a few dishwasher tablets so you don’t have to buy during 7 day stay. Comfortable stay as plenty of space, quick access to west bay facilities all within walking distance so you can leave the car in secure underground car park until end of holiday if you didn’t want to explore the coast further afield. Get sun on balcony from about 2pm and sunset is lovely to watch whilst enjoying bottle of wine on comfy balcony furniture. Plenty to do including paddle boarding from the east beach, rib rides from harbour, river kayaking and rowing boats on River Brit behind the harbour (get to see Broadchurch Detective’s riverside chalet from boat) as well as coastal walks to east over the ‘Broadchurch’ cliffs to Chesil Beach or west over the cliffs to Eype and Golden Cap near Lyme Regis. Incidentally several external areas around the apartment block were used to represent the Broadchurch police station if you enjoyed the TV series. Nearest supermarket is Morrison’s 2 miles away in Bridport but can pick up bits in Spar if don’t want to use the car. Restaurants limited due to Covid with several closed or just doing takeaway but we knew that would be case and apartment had all equipment in kitchen to enable full meals to be prepared so we had best of both worlds as cooking was easy with those lovely sea views.

  • "This was a beautiful cottage in a beautiful hidden valley, but the remoteness may come as a surprise to some."

    The cottage was not that well equipped in the kitchen, especially as most visitors would have to spend time cooking, as there is not a lot of other eating establishments around. This cottage won't appeal to the casual Lakes visitor, as it is so remote, but that is part of the appeal to us

    Reviewed by Mark4.4Feb 2019

  • "This is a lovely, spacious farm house full of character and excellent facilities eg hot water, great showers, efficient heating system, log-burning stove."

    There is a separate "Orchard" a few yards from the cottage which has seats and table and wonderful views over the Duddon valley:- great place to sit and for children to play. We really appreciated being met by the owner who showed us around the property and clearly explained all of its systems. We would be very happy to stay there again. Suggestions to owner: NOT TO BE PUBLISHED Because the cottage is remote and shopping is some distance away we would suggest: Providing (a) some tablets for the dish washer (b) some washing powder (eg enough to do one wash) and (c) something (eg a dish cloth or pan scourer) to aid in washing the dishes. These would make life there easier. Again because of remoteness, the owner could consider supplying a loaf of bread, some butter/margarene, a bottle of milk and a few tea bags as a welcome pack-just to get started on the arrival day.

    Com and the listing was pretty much the same as Sykes. I felt Sykes was a bit more thorough than booking. Telephone conversations were seamless with Sykes. Payment transactions & any information we needed made the holiday booking a true joy. We will definitely use Sykes again, and would recommend them to anyone.

The property

Broughton-in-Furness 5 miles.

This charming cottage, attached to a Lakeland farmhouse, nestles on a fellside, 2 miles from the tiny village of Seathwaite, in the beautiful Duddon Valley in the Lake District National Park.

This cottage in Seathwaite is surrounded by spectacular countryside, with breathtaking mountain views in every direction.

Carefully appointed to provide spacious holiday accommodation, this Seathwaite cottage has been sympathetically restored to retain many original features including oak beams and stone flag floors.

The large sitting room has a cosy woodburning stove to snuggle next to after a day exploring this beautiful area, and is very spacious with lots of room to spread out.

The charming farmhouse-style kitchen has a stone flagged floor and exposed stonework, highlighting the character of this lovely old traditional Seathwaite cottage.

Outside is a small terraced garden, a perfect place to sit back and admire the valley below.

This Seathwaite cottage offers superb walking and mountain biking from the doorstep, with ever-changing scenery to invigorate and relax every guest.

Just 2 miles down the lane is the tiny village of Seathwaite together with an excellent pub.

Follow the lane as it weaves its way alongside the River Duddon, passing the picturesque Birks Bridge into the valley floor with Harter Fell and The Old Man of Coniston standing proudly at either side.

This Seathwaite cottage is a perfect place to escape to 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.
