2 Bedrooms , 2 Bathrooms , Sleeps 5
Broughton-in-Furness, Duddon Valley, Lake District, Cumbria, England
Brock Cottage is an idyllic base from which to explore the Lake District. Nestled in the small ancient market town of Broughton-in-Furness, this romantic holiday cottage is perfectly situated for car-free evening dining after days out exploring this picturesque area. The Duddon Valley, honoured by Wordsworth, is on the doorstep, with Coniston, Ambleside and Windermere a short drive away. Broughton, with its Georgian square complete with stocks, has butcher, delicatessen and bakery all specialising in local produce. Mountain biking, walking, fishing, sailing and cruising the lakes are all eminently accessible. Dating back to the 1750s, the cottage is located in one of the best surviving examples of a cobbled courtyard, formerly named Sutney Square. The rear seating area has views over neighbouring gardens and to Broughton Tower parkland... Read more

A lovely cosy cottage which was very clean and lots of personal touches to make you feel at home. The local bakery is excellent and three pubs within a two minute walk. Highly recommend!
