Broughton-in-furness

Broughton-in-Furness is situated in a picture perfect location at the north of the Duddon Valley. Parts of the village date back as far as the 11th century, and much of the architecture is Georgian. At the heart of the village is a charming cobbled square, with an ancient horse chestnut tree rising at the centre, and a good selection of shops and cosy pubs grouped around it.

Broughton is the perfect base for walkers of all levels, with the windswept beauty of the Lake District fells, the tranquil Duddon Valley and the wild coastline right on its doorstep. Intrepid visitors will find that there are excellent local facilities for canoeing, sky diving, climbing, mountain biking and horse-riding. The town has an impressive literary heritage; William Wordsworth was inspired by the natural beauty of the surrounding area, and Branwell Bronte called the town home for a short period.

There is plenty on offer within easy reach of the village for families. Nearby Ford Park has a variety of fun indoor and outdoor activities, including a fantastically fast zip wire and an instructive nature walk. The South Lakes Wild Animal Park is packed with some amazing wildlife, including big cats, giraffes and friendly penguins. Or walk the Coniston Treasure Trail, solving the intriguing clues as you go.

    Millers Cottage is an 18th-century, stone-built, Lakeland detached house with a lot of character and a host of original features, such as slate flagged floors, oak beams and traditional doors. The cottage is very welcoming, warm and cosy, with a charming atmosphere. This holiday cottage makes the perfect ’home from home’ and a great place from which to explore this side of the South Lakes. It nestles at the end of a private narrow lane on the edge of the old village, surrounded by woodland. There is a children’s loft den (unheated), which is great for the family with lots of toys and games. On the doorstep is the Duddon Valley to the west of Coniston, arguably one of the ’undiscovered hidden gems’ of the Lake District National Park. There are great family walks from the door in many directions including those taking in the wonderful fells, waterfalls, crags & streams. Just a short drive from Coniston, Hawkshead, Ambleside, Grasmere, Windermere, Bowness, Tarn Hows and the Grizedale Forest. Beach 10 miles. Shop, pub and restaurant ½ mile.
