The well-presented kitchen has been finished to a high standard and fitted with wooden cabinets that are home to a selection of appliances, including a washer/dryer and dishwasher.

As the day comes to an end, head upstairs to discover the bedrooms, the first one being a delightful double room with ample storage and a super-king-size, zip/linked for your arrangements, with exposed beams and views over the rolling hills of the Coniston range.

The bedrooms benefit from a nearby bathroom where you can soak up in its bath as you reminisce about the delightful time you're having.

Enjoy a steaming cup of coffee or spot of alfresco dining at the garden's dining spaces whilst the kids and your furry friend play on the spacious lawn.

The property is adjoined to the friendly Newfield Inn where you can savour local ales and tasty dishes, before venturing out to hike through Walna Scar, traverse the Old Man of Coniston and explore the Hardknott Roman Fort.

The market town of Broughton-in-Furness rests in the unspoilt scenery of the Duddon valley and is home to your amenities in one setting, with The Black Cock Inn and a well-equipped shop within a filling station.

Venture south to Ulverston and go picnicking in its pretty parks, enjoy a spot of retail therapy in its selection of independent shops, before savouring a drink at the Shed 1 Gin Distillery.

There is so much more to see in the Lake District National Park, from its picturesque towns to its vast waters; why not venture out of the park to the Cumbrian coast for a day at the beach in Seascale?

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.

Please Note: The staircase is quite steep and narrows at the top so may be unsuitable for those with mobility issues.
Bikes can be stored in the garden on the patio which is accessible but not visible from the road but will not be in a covered area so not protected from elements”.
