    “We've stayed here on a number of occasions in the past few years, which rather confirms our satisfaction with the property.”

    It is situated in a particularly attractive and quiet part of the Lakes with the additional benefit of little traffic on the roads. However, perfectly possible to spend a week here without resorting to any further car travel.

The property

Positioned at the head of the stunning Duddon Valley close by to Seathwaite, this quaint detached cottage rests atop a hill.

This Grade II listed building dates back to 1714 and still retains many of the original features such as the exposed beams.

Perfect for families or couples, this authentic cottage provides a warm accommodation for those wishing to discover the Lake District and surrounding regions.

Retire next to the alluring fireplace in the comfortable sitting room with the TV on and tomorrow's adventures in mind.

The kitchen and diner are well equipped, whilst the three bedrooms are all well-presented - choose between the two singles, one with an en-suite bathroom, or the double bedroom.

This cottage also is pet friendly your pooches are welcome to join too.

Right from your doorstep, enjoy acres of golden countryside through Duddon Valley and the quieter Lake District Fells.

Coniston can be reached in a short drive, offering several water activities such as sailing and cruises on the lake, while those wanting a good hike can tackle the spectacular Coniston Fells walk to the Old Man of Coniston with its superb outlook over the lakes.

For a true challenge, embrace a hike up Stickle Pike or a little further north west you can discover Wast Water Lake, often described as one of the most beautiful sights in the UK.

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.
