A warm welcome supplement by tea and a log fire in the library (filled with a fascinating collection of books). Tasty homemade cookies replenished in your bedroom on a daily basis. Variety of breakfast options including fruit from the garden. Cate was a professional, pleasant and attentive host with good knowledge of the local area.

Bed and breakfasts have generally much higher standards than they used to, and Broughton House is definitely one of the best. The room was beautifully furnished and the White Company towels and bed linen much appreciated. It's the extra touches that make it a place to return to and there are plenty, with teas and coffees to help yourself to,... More

Broughton house is a perfect base for exploring the Lake District. In addition to lovely rooms in a wonderful house and grounds, with delicious breakfast; there is also a wide range of quality teas available as required, plus thoughtful little extras such as safety razors, dental accessories and bottled water (things we sometimes forget to bring).

This B&B is a gem.Stayed here with the family to celebrate my husband's birthday. Cate was so welcoming , even made a delicious cake for him! The rooms were all pleasant and comfortable and the supply of shortbread and brownies replenished daily a great treat.

Apologies for the late review Cate, but just recovering from a broken wrist! Rob and I stayed here for 2 fantastic nights in July. From start to finish we were looked after by Cate and felt relaxed and comfortable. The location is perfect for accessing the lakes but we stayed local to Cartmel and indulged in fine dining and shopping!... More
