  • "Excellent stay close to the mountains."

    Can’t thank the owner enough to help recover my car due to burst tyre after waiting over a day for RAC to help. Thank you

    Glad we could help, that is one of the positives of having owners on site. Problems can usually be solved quickly if it is possible. Thanks for your feedback Lynda. Property Owner

  • "Lovely house and stunning views, everything we needed but the pool table is in need of repair and could not be used."

    Internet is not as bad as some previous reviews if you use it in the living area and not the other rooms. It is a bit slow but that is to be expected in that kind of terrain. It is nice not to have it on 24/7 with the children and adults managed to do bookings for days out.

  • "We had another fabulous time in Valley View and the new outdoor seating area and bbq was a fabulous surprise!"

    Mrs Turner is only too happy to help, sorts anything out straight away and though respectful of the fact you are there on holiday is also interested in what you are doing and whether or not you are enjoying yourselves! The house is homely and welcoming and very spacious. Even with four adults and two children, you never felt you were on top of each other. It's actually a pleasure that wifi is not available throughout the house - it's good to have a break!! The views are wonderful and you would never get tired of the vista from the lounge / dining room or garden! Can't thank Mrs Turner enough! I hope we'll be back.

  • "Our stay was almost perfect."

    The real disappointment was the extremely poor WiFi. Often the message from the modem would be 'connected without internet'. The pool table was almost unplayable. The equipment in the kitchen was extremely well appointed. Views were stunning. The barbecue area was a real plus, with shading from the sun (or rain) All in all, a good holiday - except internet access.

  • "We were very disappointed with the cleanliness of this house."

    When we entered the property there was fusty smell which was attempting to be overpowered by plug in air fresheners. The kitchen cupboards and drawers were all dirty greasy with bits of food in them.The baking sheets and jugs and cooking dishes were so old and a hand held mixer was covered in some sort of tomato sauce. The microwave was left with smears of food and the cutlery tray was dusty with food in it. The freezer was on a high work surface which was not easy to use. Every draw was cracked and broken and you could not pull them out safely without the risk of cutting your fingers. We had to clean the kitchen and pots we were going to use during the holiday and place them in a clean place and leave the other stuff in the cupboards. This all really put me off this cottage and I would say would not go back again. Which is a shame as this place could be amazing. It has amazing views is very quiet and lots of space.The kitchen and all its electric appliances need updating and certainly needs a really good clean. There is no excuse for not being clean and kitchen cupboards and contents need checking and cleaning as needed between clients. We have booked past holidays with Sykes and have future holidays booked with you but can I ask do you check the accommodations for cleanliness and safety or do you rely on customer feedback.

  • "We had a fabulous time at Valley View, which is entirely appropriately named!"

    The house was warm, spacious and comfortable and we felt completely at home there. The owner was really helpful and made us feel welcome. She respected our privacy but we knew that if we had any problems we could speak to her at any time. The huge thunderstorm we had took out the Internet - not that our world stopped turning as a result as we weren't glued to screens - but Mrs. Turner called early the next morning to make sure we were ok and to tell us that BT were going to get to us as soon as they could. We'd read all the information prior to going and so took games / dvds etc with us but they stayed in the bag - we sat out in the garden soaking up the fabulous uninterrupted view and the children (not to mention their Mum and Dad ) loved the Pool table!! The holiday at Valley View provided us with the perfect setting and opportunity to forget, for a while, the craziness of the last few months and gave us the chance to be a "normal" family having conversations during which Covid 19 wasn't even mentioned and for that we are extremely grateful! A great place to go if you want to relax and recharge the batteries. Hoping to return.

  • "Nice house but needs a few more homely touches, like having a few DVDs."

    There was a DVD player but nothing to play. A WiFi booster, there was hardly any internet, 1mbs, and as soon as you left the room you couldn't get the wifi. Not being charged to use the washing machine, 1000 plus a week and still have to pay to use a washing machine. The house could of done with cleaning better, we found dirty socks under the sofa. And a fence for the garden would be brilliant, sheep kept getting in meaning you can never let your dogs out. Maybe a few leaflets or instructions on what's in the area, like walks or attractions and how to use the heating. Lovely view though, very peaceful.

    Thank you for staying at Valley View and providing feedback on your stay. DVD's have been removed due to COVID-19 and the safety of everyone to attend the property, we advise all customers before attending what may be removed. Due to the location of the property, WiFi may be weaker than other parts of the country. We apologise for the cleanliness this has been taken on board.

    The beds were comfortable! The views were incredible! We stay at many places in the Lakes, and this was one of our favorites. The house has unobstructed views that are unparalleled. It sits on the edge of a working farm, off a winding road about ten minutes away from Broughton-on-Furness. The town is great-- excellent pubs, a butcher with a small market and a bakery-- so the house is well situated. It's close to the coast and great walks. The house has comfy couches and even a pool table. All around, an excellent find!

    Together with being seriously long term ill I was very nervous about this trip. Basically everything went to plan - payment, finding the cottage, the cottage itself having the best view and facilities. We all would definitely go again - all children agreed (aged 7 to 14 years)

    We really felt like we were getting away from it all, but in the luxury of a nice house. The only downside was - hot water could be temperamental, which is shame because it has the most amazing bath which I couldn't use because it ran cold. Could also benefit from a hairdryer. Can't fault anything else! We'd definitely stay again.

    The views however are absolutely stunning! You need to be organised with provisions as there are no grocery shops nearby. The small town of Broughton in Furness has limited shops and these do not open on Sundays. There are pubs one of which serves good food. We really enjoyed our stay. The cottage is really spacious and comfortable. We thought a fire would be nice focal point. The owner made us a lovely cake which was delicious!

    The cottage is beautiful and located on a working farm, we had the joy of seeing the lambs. The walks nearby the cottage are beautiful but it is hilly, very good for burning calories :0) This place is perfect place to get away from everything. The mobile signal isn't great and also the Internet is slow at best, but this was great as you don't need the Internet with spectacular views that surround you. I would highly recommend this cottage as it is close to Coniston lake and Wast Water. We are hoping to be back later this year :0)

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.
