We stayed for 10 days in October and didn't want to leave, the house is excellent and has everything you need for a cosy stay. Fab kitchen, lovely bedrooms, beautiful garden and huge living room. The owners we also very lovely and extremely helpful! Great pubs and lots to do in and around the area too. Try horse riding on the beach at Silecroft.
We stayed over the half term week in October, a family of six. The photos really don't do this cottage justice. It has been tastefully modernised and renovated with everything you could possibly require to make your stay comfortable. The owners are extremely helpful without being intrusive and we received excellent communications from them regarding our holiday. The cottage was very clean, warm and cosy. It's location is superb, close enough to the lakes and the tourist spots but gets you away from the crowds at the end of the day. It is located in the beautiful village of Broughton in Furness with it's fantastic shops, pubs and restaurants, everything you could possibly want in a holiday.
I have rented cottages, barns & houses in the lakes for many years too many to mention; This is the most spacious fully equipped property I have rented over the years, we had nine adults stay here for a long weekend with space for everybody to relax I could not praise this place highly enough. The owners are nearby and ready and willing to help if you need them, booking was simple, directions perfect; The pubs in the area were a little disappointing with the exception of the ever brilliant Manor arms the beer here is as always perfect the other bars need to up their game the beer in one was shocking! About 1/2 mile away is the Blacksmith arms with good beer and great food catering for a large group with ease highly recommended: The property is clean fresh and on the ball;
This is one of the best properties I have rented for some time, a group of nine adults stayed here for a long weekend. We had loads of room without intruding on somebody else's space. All the facilities are first class from the large kitchen, huge living room, amazing dining room, superb shower room and family bathroom which could have been another bedroom. All said a great rental property with no negatives that come to mind!!
This lovingly restored and high specification rental house was spacious enough for three of us to almost live independently of each other but come together for meals and the evenings. Three doctors stayed here in June 2014 - we rarely meet except for occasional annual holidays together and this property was a perfect solution to our need for space and comfort. The railed garden is safe for dogs (and children) and given the south aspect the garden which has terrific lawns was perfect for warm al fresco breakfasts and then lying out in the sun for a while. The views towards the sea across fields of sheep and the church to the left are delightful and the proximity to the village itself made for easy and classy food shopping. The bakers and butchers as well as the post office are all you need, but the gifts of bread, cake and milk upon arrival were a nice touch c/o Paul. The owners are very proximate and they both called by to say hello and chatted amiably wanting us to be as comfortable as possible. The fact that the sea and vast expanse of beach at Silecroft is but 8 miles away made for both sunny and at times bracing long walks with the dogs. The inland lakes are also easy to get to with both Hartknot and Kirkstone passes well worth a day out. The kitchen and main bathroom are spacious and there is one downstairs loo and shower in case of a mad rush for the main bathroom i the morning? There is a multi fuel stove which we did not test drive, but that would come into its own in the winter and the living space naturally divides into two spaces depending upon how you arrange the sofas. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will return, we think next year? In the meantime I am planning a winter trip to stay again since I am my two Dalmatians love it - and the beach...and the....We give this property an unreserved 5*.

We had a fantastic holiday, lovely house which has been restored to a very high standard. Garden is lovely, our dogs loved lazing in the sun! Lovely house, very cosy, comfortable and relaxing.
