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 Griffin is a beautiful, 400-year-old, Grade II listed, 1672 coaching inn which features a light and airy sitting room with open fire, a well-equipped kitchen, three lovely bedrooms, one en-suite, and a spacious bathroom. Outside, it benefits from a small garden area accessed from the back door. 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.

The Griffin (LP8) is directly in front of The Little Griffin (LUW) and can be booked together to accommodate up to 10 guests.

The Griffin Cottage is absolutely magical and is like a treasure chest that keeps giving. Spacious, beautiful, comfortable and with very well equipped kitchen. Gorgeous location as well, with an easy access to walks, mountains, the beach, and the lakes. We fell in love with the cottage and the village and had a very special Christmas! We look forward to coming back. Thank you!
