    “Stylish cosy cottage in a REAL Lake District village”

    This was our third visit to Caroline's Cottage which says it all! We love the comfort and convenience of this stylishly converted cottage in a part of the Lake District which escapes the blight of mass tourism and has a genuinely local atmosphere. Well-equipped and well-located - Broughton offers a great butcher and delicatessen, a tempting bakery and a good assortment of pubs, two of which serve decent food (not to mention the Lamb Henry in the Blacksmith's Arms just out of the village which is ...

    This was our third visit to Caroline's Cottage which says it all! We love the comfort and convenience of this stylishly converted cottage in a part of the Lake District which escapes the blight of mass tourism and has a genuinely local atmosphere. Well-equipped and well-located - Broughton offers a great butcher and delicatessen, a tempting bakery and a good assortment of pubs, two of which serve decent food (not to mention the Lamb Henry in the Blacksmith's Arms just out of the village which is recommended in the Good Food Guide). The cosy cottage has two wood-burning stoves - it was a real treat to enjoy breakfast by a log fire. We enjoyed walking nearby in the unspoilt Duddon Valley and on the Old Man of Coniston, and also explored the coast and the Duddon Mosses National Nature Reserve.

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.

Note: This property will only accept babes in arms and children over the age of 5 years old.
