The Cumbria/Lake District
The Lake District has some of England's best known scenery with stunning mountain views and glorious lakes. The central area, around Windermere and Ambleside, attracts the majority of tourists but those heading to the south-western pennisula are rewarded with equally beautiful and more tranquil vistas. Here the mountains meet the coast to create a dramatic landscape. Together with its wide range of tourist attractions, historical sites and leisure activities, this part of the Lakes certainly rewards more than one visit.
Broughton-in-Furness is handily situated to explore the less frequented parts of the Lake District. Coniston Water and Coniston Old Man are but a half hour's drive away with museums and historic houses aplenty. Low level walks can be enjoyed such as around Tarn Hows or one in Broughton itself along a disused railway track. Cycling is also popular with a full set of mountain bike trails in nearby Grizedale Forest. The coast is close by with miles of beaches and dunes to explore, together with owl and wildlife sanctuaries.
In the summer, many villages put on local shows (Broughton's one is at the end of August). Here you will get to see Cumberland wrestling, fell racing, stick making, sheep shearing and many other rural activities and skills.

"Well located and fully equipped for a relaxing visit to Broughton-in-Furness"
The property has everything you need and is well located for a walk into Broughton-in-Furness for the local shops and pubs, or as a base to explore the surrounding countryside.

"Great location, sufficient accomodations."
The house was clean and the kitchen was well furnished however there was mold in the shower. The furniture in the living room as not very comfortable, but the beds were. The weather was terrible so … More
8 Copper Rigg is a well equipped cottage in a lovely village with some great pubs and independent shops, as enjoyed by these visitors.
The "mould in the shower" presumably refers to some discoloration of the silicone sealant between the bath and the tiles and is a common problem in bathrooms even when there is automatic ventilation, as is the case here. We periodically renew the sealant and shall be doing so again when the entire cottage is re-decorated before the end of the year.
The leather sofa and easy chair in the living room area are in good condition and these are the first negative comments received concerning their comfort.
Unfortunately, we cannot control the weather for our guests - although we do believe that this part of the Lake District receives less rain in general than other areas!

"Fantastic stay in the South Lakes"
Stayed in May with my partner visiting family. The cottage is situated in the village of Broughton-in-Furness and is an excellent base for exploring the South Lakes. Good pubs and a great bakery and butchers! The cottage itself had everything we needed and is decorated to a high standard. We have booked with South Lakes Cottages before and on each occasion we have found booking easy and the cottages to be exactly as described and well appointed. Highly recommended!

"Clean, comfortable place to stay with good toy box for kids!"
We stayed at 8 Copper Rigg with a 3 year old and a 1 year old and found it to be clean and well-equipped. It is a short walk to the town's square with its good butchers, bakers and grocery store and a lovely local park if you don't want to take the kids far. Would definitely stay again.

"Super house, great village"
Stayed here in June with our young (under 2) son, and have to say #8 Copper Rigg was superb.
The house had everything we could look to have - without being cluttered - and the place when we arrived was absolutely spotless (like very very very clean spotless!).
Was a great touch too that there were some toys supplied for the wee one which we had trouble wrestling off him by the end of our stay!
The village is very picturesque with a Butcher (open until 5:30) the bakery which is just as good as everyone says it is - bacon rolls a must - and a small shop too.
The location was good for the south of the lakes - just about everything we wanted to do was within a 45 min drive or so ; Warwick and the north of the lakes may have been a tad longer but to be honest we were kept very much busy here.
Great location and super house which contributed greatly to a fabulous holiday. - booking was easy and quick too.

"An excellent cottage in a great location"
Part of a nice quiet mews, 8 Copper Rigg is a well equipped little house, perfect as a base for exploring the South Lakes area of Cumbria. Good size bedrooms and bathroom upstairs, handy second toilet downstairs, a very functional kitchen space with easily enough room to cater for parties of 5 (my group size), comfortable living space with dining table and fenced patio space at the back for enjoying the last of the evening air. All this in a picturesque town with character and charm, and a fantastic pub - the Black Cock Inn.

"Comfortable, well equipped holiday cottage in heart of southern lakes"
Clean, tidy holiday cottage -spacious bedrooms, well equipped bedroom and comfortable living room. And a bath! Nice touches like decent paintings on the wall and useful information on local attractions etc. Hot water and electricity all included - no messing about with meters etc. And a friendly person to deal with the booking as well.
Nice to be in a holiday cottage where there is clear evidence that the owner is as much interested in making your stay enjoyable and comfortable as they are in making a return on their investment.

"Cosy and Comfortable"
We booked this cottage at the last minute and we very pleased with the standard of accommodation. The house is modern, freshly decorated and pretty spacious. The kitchen is very well equipped with nearly everything one would require for a self-catering holiday. The house is extremely well heated and would therefore be ideal for a winter break (we had to turn down the radiator valves) and constant hot water is great, we especially appreciated the hot showers. There is a substantial amount of information literature available in the house including pre-printed tourist board type leaflets and more importantly specifically written guidance on things like local walks etc - these were particularly useful. There is also an OS map which came in handy. In terms of location we found it ideal. Broughton-in-Furness is a small market town but is very well served with pubs, cafes, general store, garage, baker, and butcher. These last two are really very good and the baker is way too tempting for your own good. We especially enjoyed a pint or two in the Manor Arms which has a large selection of real ales and ciders and all this with two real fires as well. The house is within a couple of minutes walk of these amenities. In terms of eating out we didn't try any of the pubs within the town but can recommend the Church House Inn at Torver www.churchhouseinntorver.com and the Blacksmiths Arms in Broughton Mills (NB no grub on a Monday) www.theblacksmithsarms.com. Broughton is great for getting to the coast and also into the fells - so best of both worlds. There is much to do around this area and I'm sure we will be back.

"Comfortable and clean accommodations"
We were quite satisfied with our stay at 8 Copper Rigg. The rental was well located - just a few steps to stores and the local pubs. The place was spotless and had what we needed (although we missed… More

"Our second visit to Copper Rigg - hope to go back again, lovely."
Our second visit to Copper Rigg and have to say we enjoyed it even more than the first time ....
Weather was great (always a bonus!), found even more places to visit (with a 3 year old) and the village was as friendly and welcoming as we remembered it. Local pubs still serving great food and the butcher, bakers and cafe all fabulous if you don't fancy "dining out".
The cottage is lovely and is more than adequately equiped for a young family - its like home from home. Local park, beaches, Pucky Ducks Farm (fab - spent the whole day there!) and The Zone play area all recommended for small children.
Have loved our little holidays here and would have no hesitation in recommending it to just about anybody.
