  • "Only one toilet in the cottage, it was difficult when 5 people in the morning, skyescottaged."

    Co. Uk didn’t detail about there was a washing machine out in the garage , we pack a lot of clothes for this trips.

    Thank you for your review, the property is listed correctly as having one bathroom, I appreciate this may have been difficult for your party, but the information provided is correct. The washing machine is not mentioned on the listing, some owners prefer not to list some appliances in case they need to be removed or repaired, this would mean guests are let down or wish to cancel, having the washing machine available to guests is a bonus.

    The distances listed are based on Broughton in Furness town. This cottage is not located in Broughton-In-Furness town, it is located on the opposite side of Duddon Valley which is a reasonable distance (10 to 15 mins) from Broughton. As a result the distances are greater than listed. The hills, single track roads, locals who expect you to get out of the way and livestock also mean travel times are longer. We loved the location which is remote and you will get used to using the same narrow (in places) single track road to get to and from the farm. The property is listed as pet friendly. I think it’s fair to say the owners would rather pets did not attend. The lists relating to does and don’t particularly relating to dogs, while partly understandable mean your dog is really only welcome in the conservatory. Don’t let dogs upstairs, don’t let dogs in the bedrooms, don’t let dogs on the furniture, don’t let dogs in the garden off a lead, don’t let dogs foul on the grass in the garden, don’t let dogs scratch the polished wooden floor, don’t let dogs on carpeted areas. The garden is not inclosed so the dog has to be kept indoors or on a lead because of the livestock. I think it’s absolutely right that dogs are not allowed on the furniture, and asking that they are kept on a lead because of livestock is also completely understandable. However closing off the garden and being a little more understanding of pets would be a welcome addition to what is a lovely comfortable cottage in a stunning part of Cumbria.

  • "The cottage was clean, comfortable and very spacious, situated in a lovely valley with beautiful views."

    Being slightly away from the main area of the lake district (on a single track road, but eadily accessable) it was lovey and peaceful and although it was on a working farm, the animals were not too noisy in the morning. Would recommend this cottage as a good base for exploring the beautiful lake district.

    I can understand why others might have issues with the shower - power shower it isn't - but we'd read up and are used to country living, so this met our expectations. We were given plenty of firewood and were warm and comfortable on a long wet weekend of walking and biking. We were well looked after.

  • "The house was cosy and provided everything we needed."

    The photos of the view didn't do it justice, the location was so much more beautiful in person. The house is in a very rural location so wouldn't be for everybody but was exactly what we wanted. We arrived to fresh cake in the fridge and where also pleased to find that the TV was connected to the wifi which meant we could watch Netflix in the evenings. A couple of things to note is that the shower water pressure wasn't very good & the smoke alarm in the kitchen got set off a couple of times when we where cooking even though we had the extractor fan switched on - other than this i'd highly recommend!

    Many thanks for your feedback. I am pleased to hear that you had a good stay. If you have a power shower at home this shower is gravity fed so will not have the same power but is more than functional. The heat detector in the kitchen has been checked by an electrician and is working fine. Property Owner

  • "The general comfort of the cottage was great beds really good sofas good but the things I would like to point out is the shower was absolutely terrible no pressure also it was disappointing that the woodburner glass was broken on one of the doors which then made the whole cottage smokey and made it unusable and we booked it to enable us to have this."

    The other negative was that dogs are not allowed on the garden which means you have to walk up the road each time which isn't ideal first and last thing, I wouldn't have booked it had i realised. The views are truly stunning from the cottage tho and although quite remote a lovely setting. Being welcomed with a gorgeous cake and milk on arrival. Will definately be returning to the Lakes as only touched the surface with gorgeous walks.

    Many thanks for your feedback. I can confirm that the wood-burner has now been replaced. As we state on the website - Cottage is on a working farm, dogs to be kept on a lead when outside but dogs 'are allowed' on the garden but we ask that you clean up after your dog. I am glad you enjoyed the cake and the views. Property Owner

  • "The Granary is a lovely cottage with open plan living area and all rooms are really big."

    The views are incredible from the patio and gravelled area beyond. On arrival there was a homemade Victoria sponge cake and jug of milk which was lovely! The kitchen has everything you need and a large fridge freezer, and we had Asda deliver shopping to the cottage soon after we arrived - very worthwhile! There were only 2 slight negatives to this property - the beds are really firm and we all found that our backs ached after a few nights. Although this property is advertised as dog friendly, our host told us not to let them use the garden as a loo and to take them for a walk. Everywhere else I’ve stayed, we’ve only been asked to pick up after our dogs which we would do anyway. When you’re on holiday, the last thing you feel like doing is taking a walk along the road with 2 lively dogs several times a day! Despite the loveliness of the property and location, had we known about this rule, we wouldn’t have stayed here. There is livestock everywhere and walking in the area was almost impossible unless dogs were on leads. In the Duddon valley below, we found lovely riverside spots to chill next to. Also, Silecroft beach is great for dogs or a beach horse ride!

  • "The Granary was a great place to stay."

    Cottage is equipped in everything a family with children may need - the kitchen especially. Rooms in the cottage are very spacious and bed/bedding is of a good quality. This together with the place being kept lovely and warm made out early April stay very pleasant. Log burner adds another lovely aspect to a relaxing stay. The views are breath taking! Please be prepared for a digital detox once in Lake District in general as the phone reception is not great however The Granary does have Wi-Fi so you can catch up on your daily fix in the evenings if needs be! Overall, we have had a great stay with 3 children and a dog. Highly recommend The Granary for your Lake District base.

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.
