    “We loved the cottage at Undercragg.”

    Plenty of room for the four of us, (and two dogs) lovely furnishings, bedding and character with stunning scenery from every window and door. The home was well equipped with plenty of towels, toilet roll and cleaning products, soap and hand wash, with some essentials in the cupboards such as tea, coffee, sugar, salt, pepper, etc. Lovely open fire, which was not really needed as we had gorgeous weather but we just had to light a fire when we were there. Quite a long, single track road in ...

    Plenty of room for the four of us, (and two dogs) lovely furnishings, bedding and character with stunning scenery from every window and door. The home was well equipped with plenty of towels, toilet roll and cleaning products, soap and hand wash, with some essentials in the cupboards such as tea, coffee, sugar, salt, pepper, etc. Lovely open fire, which was not really needed as we had gorgeous weather but we just had to light a fire when we were there. Quite a long, single track road in some parts to get to the cottage, but good fun. Lots of additional touches such as a bottle of wine and sponge cake on arrival to towels for the dogs. There is no phone signal or WiFi but that added to the relaxing holiday and not constantly checking emails etc. But there is a basic sky tv and DVD’s availability, along with CD player and radio. The gardens were stunning with plenty of tables and chairs. We would really love to come back to Undercragg in the future and would definitely recommend this beautiful cottage.

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.

With an impressive selection of well-known landmarks in this tranquil location, a break to Undercragg promises an excellent outdoor holiday.

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.
