The property

Broughton-in-Furness 6.7 miles.

Enjoying the countryside on its doorstep in the hamlet of Seathwaite near Broughton-in-Furness in the beautiful Duddon Valley is the delightful end-terrace house, Beckfold Cottage. In a perfect location to experience the Lake District National Park's outdoor wonders and with spectacular surrounding views, this is the ideal spot for an idyllic country getaway.

Upon arrival, you will be greeted by ample off-road parking before entering this welcoming little home-from-home.

The living/dining room is a cosy area where you can relax in the comfy seating, throw some logs into the woodburning stove and settle down to enjoy your favourite Netflix show on the TV.

Rustle up a tasty meal in the well-stocked kitchen, which benefits from a washer/dryer for any laundry needs and a dishwasher - no washing up!

After dinner, climb the stairs to the two restful bedrooms, a double room with superb views towards Harter Fell and a twin room (with beds that can be zip/linked to a super-king-size on request) enjoying stunning views towards the Coniston range and onto the garden.

Both bedrooms share a tiled family bathroom with a bath with shower over.

The secluded enclosed garden is perfect on a sunny afternoon for alfresco dining at one of the two dining areas while your furry friend runs free on the lawn; or simply relax and watch the visiting birdlife and view the fells beyond.

Enjoy one of the pretty scenic walks from the doorstep, or venture further afield and spend the day exploring Walna Scar, or the Coniston Range and the renowned Old Man of Coniston peak, and visit the nearby historic Hardknott Roman Fort, before ending the day with a delicious home-cooked meal at the nearby Newfield Inn. Travel to Broughton-in-Furness, a small picturesque market town nestled in the Duddon Valley, where you can find all your amenities in one place, including a selection of pubs and a petrol station with a well-stocked shop.

Venture to Coniston and discover the local history at The Ruskin Museum, board the Steam Yacht Gondola and sail across Coniston Water, or venture across the lake to spend the afternoon exploring the enchanting Brantwood.

Ulverston is a superb day out with the unique Laurel and Hardy Museum, green spaces of Ford Park and Yacht Park, and the fabulous Shed 1 Gin Distillery where you can enjoy a well-deserved drink in the evening.

Make the most of the wider region and visit the picture-postcard towns of Ambleside, Windermere and Bowness-on-Windermere, or venture further into the National Park and climb its peaks, including Scafell Pike or travel to the Cumbrian coast for an outing in Seascale and St. Bees.

However you decide to spend your time, a rural escape awaits you at Beckfold Cottage.

About the location

BROUGHTON-IN-FURNESS

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.
