From a touch of luxury to characterful heritage, experience one of our truly inspiring holiday properties.


This attractive barn conversion stands in a pretty, walled, south-facing patio garden, in the heart of the historical Broughton-in-Furness.

This holiday property is situated in the heart of the historic, 11th-century village of Broughton-in-Furness, which is full of old world charm and is the gateway to the beautiful Duddon Valley. The Little Griffin is an attractive, detached barn conversion which stands in a pretty, walled, south-facing garden. Cosy and equipped to a good standard, the cottage has a quirky layout, with a kitchen, dining area, bathroom and bedroom on the ground floor, and the living room, twin bedroom and bathroom on the first floor. It is neatly tucked away off the road, 20 yards down a private path under an ancient arch. 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, including 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. Close to the sea, this attractive town makes an inspiring choice from which to further explore a magical heartland of the western lakes. Take a trip to the lovely Langdales, Dunnerdale and Ulpha, which offer some challenging high level treks, along with many low level paths and trails over moorland. In just 8 miles, enjoy a pleasant drive west, which takes visitors past the Coniston Mountain Range to Coniston Water. Here, explore the lake shore, or from the village hire a boat. Finally, for a great day out, head north towards Ravenglass and Muncaster Castle. This property is perfectly placed for activities such as watersports, horse riding, fishing and cycling. Ulverston is just 10 miles, with Laurel and Hardy Museum. Village shops, pubs and restaurant within 100 yards.

    A lovely cottage in a charming quiet English village. Cottage equipped to a high-standard. Loved the local bakery but anyone looking to eat in good local pubs must book in advance (though this may only be a problem in high season). I would suggest taking plenty of cash, the local bank only opens three times a week and doesn't have a cash-point machine (in fact nearest cashpoint we found was about 15miles away!). Cash is available from Post Office but that is about to close down in autumn 2015. Also townies used to popping out to local convenience store to get some milk in the evening will be in for a shock as there aren't any nearby, but that just adds to the charm of the holiday. Broughton is a bit off the beaten track in terms of the main Lake District attractions but most places within a 30 min drive, and the local area and coastal region is as beautiful as the 'must see' spots. I'm sure anyone staying at The Little Griffin will have a great short-break or holiday. PS Loved the collection of 1920s Encyclopedias - amazing to read. I longed to take them home.

    Cottage advertised as having WiFi. There was no WiFi, which was obviously dissapointing.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the Owner; Thank you for your comments. Please note this cottage does have full Wi-Fi but there was a problem with the line that particular week. We allowed the use of the Wi-Fi from the Griffin with an extension.

    Main problem shower far too powerful so couldn't use it and had to bath. Owner knows about this problem but hasn't solved it. Otherwise cottage on cramped site and not much privacy.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the owner; I am so sorry if the shower was not to your liking, most clients like a powerful shower. However I am planning to update this bathroom to a walk in shower and refurbish it for next season. However I was really surprised that you thought there was no privacy, as this cottage is snugly tucked away off the road and the garden is totally private and quiet and quite a sun trap, and although there are other properties very close by on the walk through to arrive at the cottage there are no rooms overlooked directly from any other property in fact I consider it to be much more private than many others in Broughton in Furness.
