  • "The cottage was lovely but quite cold downstairs."

    Then too hot if you lit the fire. A little bit out of the way you needed to drive for over an hour to get anywhere. Well equipped but if like me you need fresh coffee then take a cafeteria with you.

  • "The cottage is charming and full of character, in a quiet location and well stocked with everything you need."

    Some of it is a little tired, but the owner is having the cottage updated, including a whole new bathroom, after our stay which will make it even better. I would have given it a 5* rating but the WiFi lets it down. The signal is so weak that it's not much better than dial up. I did test it several times and the best strength I managed was 0.48 mbps although it was normally 0.29 mbps at best. Apart from that, I would thoroughly recommend it as a place to stay. The owner is very nice and extremely helpful and always available should you need him. We hope to return one day soon.

  • "Had a lovely stay at Hall Dunnnerdale cottage."

    The house is very cosy and warm with very comfortable sofas. Just what you need after long wet walks. The kitchen had all necessities. Newfield inn about 15 minute walk away provides good food and drink. Very dog friendly cottage with enough space downstairs for 2 large dogs and the hoover was great at removing any fur from the rug. There isn't a garden as such but the car park area is enclosed if you check the gates are shut (its a public footpath). The property has mould which isn't a problem but the blinds could do with being replaced. It would have been nice to have a welcome pack to explain things like recycling, closest shop, where to leave the key etc. Overall we had a great time and would stay again.

  • "The cottage is in a lovely location at the heart of the Lake District and great for local walks through the valley and over nearby fells."

    It was very clean and had everything we needed for a relaxing week including a nice wood burner and comfortable furniture. Despite arriving after dark, the directions made it easy to find. The lady at Sykes Cottages with whom I spoke when I made the booking was very friendly and helpful. Very happy all round.

  • "This cottage is in a remote area, far from shops and normal tourist areas."

    One cannot walk down the road for more milk or the daily paper! This suited us well, being in a wonderful valley away from crowds. Have walked a whole day without seeing a soul. It is near a very friendly pub and the owners are happy to assist in any way. The staircase is difficult if you are not fully able.

  • "Most welcoming; both by the owner and the cottage."

    Very well equipped kitchen. The location is perfect for visiting the quieter Lake District, since Wasdale head, Walney Island, Grasmere are less than an hour away. Although those with strong legs need only to wander the beautiful Duddon Valley. Unfortunately although from first impressions the cottage seemed very clean, dog hairs smothered the rug and most corners were very dusty. A vacuum cleaner or dust-buster in the cottage would have been handy, if only to remove the evidence of some owners allowing their dogs to roam upstairs.

    Beautiful setting streams and lots of farm animals. Steep access roads. Ideal get away from it all with a dog. No WiFi or phone signal. Owners very helpful.

  • "Pictures of the property show a detatched property with a pic-nic table and off road area, in reality the property is joined at a right angle to 2 other cottages that over look the front of this cottage resulting in you being over looked."

    There is no boundary fencing between this cottage and the adjacent properties so we were fortunate to be left with little presents by a dog staying in the adjacent property. There is a pay phone in the property and whilst I was not expecting Wi-Fi, it would have been nice to be made aware that there is no mobile phone signal on 'Vodafone, EE or O2'. The property is in need of a little TLC, shaver point in bathroom painted over, pendant light fitting in bedroom not wired correctly so you could see the blue and brown wires, you are warned that the stairs are steep, but they deserve a hand rail that is more sturdy than just a rope, especially as the stairs themselves vary in both height and depth. Property would benefit from a deep clean. Beds are over due to have the matresses replaced, each has a large indent from use. Booked the property Saturday to Saturday, but only managed to stay until breakfast on the Wednesday.

    Very comfortable and peaceful. Gary the owner was very welcoming. As this is a dog friendly cottage it would have been helpful if a hoover had been supplied.

    It could’ve done with being a little bit cleaner, there were a lot of cobwebs and dust bunnies under the sofa. However it was quiet and in a beautiful spot. There was a brilliant pack that had a selection of 15 walls that we made great use of.

  • "Warm cosy cottage with a lovely wood burning fire in the very picturesque Duddon Valley."

    Plenty of local walks on your doorstep along with the welcoming Newfield Inn just a 10 minute walk away. Please note there are two Seathwaites - this cottage is the lower Seathwaite on the ordnance survey map, not in walking distance to Scarfell Pike as many think!

  • "Such a sweet, cosy, warm cottage in the middle of the valley, perfect place to escape from all the drama of modern day life due to no internet or phone signal, but still in prime location of all attractions of the Lake District, stunning scenery surrounded by hills and mountains and the tranquil sounds from the river passing by at the bottom of the garden made it that extra special experience, dog friendly cottage which which made it even better for us as they come everywhere we go and especially appreciated the log fire after the long walks in the hills and climbing Scaffol Pike!"

    Will definitely be coming back again and are looking forward to it already!

A cosy cottage situated within the tasteful village of Seathwaite.

This welcoming and cosy property makes a delightful place for friends and family to enjoy the calming atmosphere.

The exterior is complete with stunning greenery, stone features and echoes character throughout.

Step inside and you will be greeted by a warm open plan sitting room knitted together by a woodburning stove, leather seating and overhead ceiling beams.

The dining and kitchen area are fully equipped, holding a traditional theme that projects a sense of the country with wooden furnishings and a quality finish.

Take the winding staircase which is an almost historic addition to the property, leading up to a sandy coloured bathroom, neatly arranged for a unique touch.

Two single bedrooms almost mirror each other, both holding signature beams, and storage space blended together to create an enchanting hideaway.

A third bedroom showcases a double bed, which continues an identical theme, enhanced by a lovely dressing table and extra space to meet your desires.

Wander out into the charming garden, surrounded by natural views and a delicate landscape that breathes serenity and calmness.

If you are looking to explore the village and town, Broughton-in-Furness has a lot to offer with a selection of shops and pubs, and makes an excellent holiday for walking and climbing.

Set amidst the charm of the Lake District and close to the sea, this property is resting in a refreshing location.

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.
