    • “This is the 2nd Christmas and New Year that my husband, I and our 10 year old son have stayed at Caroline's cottage. It is a lovely cottage in a fantastic location and I would highly recommend it. Cosy but modern, peaceful but in the heart of the village, relaxing but with amazing walks on the doorstep!”

    • “My girlfriend and I stayed at Caroline's cottage for a relaxing week in March. The cottage’s location is perfect if you’re planning to explore the Lake District and Broughton itself is a lovely village. It gets pretty cold in the evenings in March and we loved sitting in front of one of the log burners at night (there’s also central heating if you don’t fancy building a fire!) We went on a few great walks straight from the cottage but almost all major attractions are within a half hour drive. The views from Orrest Head are worth the walk up the hill, the Lakeland motor museum is definitely worth a visit and we went on a cruise on lake Windermere. The cottage itself is very well equipped. The kitchen has everything you need (oven, microwave, pots, pans, plates etc. ), there’s a TV with a DVD player, fast wi-fi, great collection of board games and A LOT of books to work your way through. Broughton-in-Furness has a post office, three great pubs (fab food at the Black Cock inn), loads of on- street parking and breakfast at the bakery is a must! We had a great week and will definitely be returning!”

    • “Excellent cottage - traditional but with modern touches. Great location in Broughton, close to three good shops (butchers, bakers, grocers) and close to pubs. There was a small problem with the heating but it was fixed on the day we raised it. We would go again”

    Mr Scott, Bakewell, October 2018

    • “The cottage was clean and airy and situated in the very middle of the village. A few steps away from the newsagents, the wonderful bakery and general store. Broughton in Furness is a superb point from which to access the South Lakes and the coast. Lovely drives and vistas. Thankyou. Clive 21/8/18”

Regional Information

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.
