Picture postcard Lakeland cottage at Broughton Bank, Cartmel, Cumbria. Easily accessible from outside the Lake District, it's ideal to reach most places in south Cumbria.

Completely renovated, very comfortable accommodation with its own drive and secluded raised garden, making it a really picturesque location all the year round as the area benefits from the mild climate generated by the Gulf Stream. The cottage is just a few yards from the owners' home, but still feels quite separate as it has its own garden and is not overlooked: you are assured a truly peaceful and relaxing setting for your holiday home.

The cottage has been designed on sustainable lines: there are solar panels on site and the underfloor heating comes from ground source. Even the materials used have been sourced sustainably: a dying pine tree was felled, cut into planks, stored and dried naturally over time and has been used to make all the doors, skirting boards and most of the stairs. Floors are made from rich walnut wood.

Broughton Bank Cottage sleeps 4, with one double and one twin bedded room. A cot and highchair are available on request. WiFi is available.

There are lots of walks nearby with all sorts of profiles, to suit all from very active to not so active. A riding school, quad bike rental, motor museum, historic churches and stately home are all nearby, and it's a great base for easy access to the Lakes, with so many and varied things to do.

Situated a mile north of Cartmel in the South Lakes Peninsulas of the Lake District in the Northwest of England, it is about 2 hours' drive from Manchester. 15 miles from the M6 motorway junction 36. The nearest railway stations are at Cark and Cartmel and Grange-over-Sands.

The Lake District

The Lake District, also commonly known as The Lakes or (particularly as an adjective) Lakeland, is a mountainous region in North West England. A popular holiday destination, it is famous not only for its lakes, forests and mountains (or fells), but also for its associations with the early 19th century poetry and writings of William Wordsworth and the other Lake Poets.

Historically shared by the counties of Cumberland, Westmorland and Lancashire, the Lake District now lies entirely within the modern county of Cumbria. All the land in England higher than three thousand feet above sea level lies within the National Park, including Scafell Pike, the highest mountain in England. It also contains the deepest and longest lakes in England, Wastwater and Windermere, respectively. (Thanks to Wikipedia)


Walks to Cartmel village (1 mile) and Holker Hall (3 miles), well known for its gardens, are set in lakeland scenery. Walking further up the valley one finds grandstand views of the Lakeland Fells. Cartmel, known for its old world appeal, is built around an ancient Priory. Although quite small, it boasts race course, pubs and restaurants including L'Enclume with its 2 Michelin stars, and many shops including the famous Sticky Toffee Pudding shop. There's even a speciality cheese shop and a bakery. The many attractions of this lovely area are within an easy drive. Golf and riding locally, as well as the well-known Motor Museum which now on the old Blue factory site at Backbarrow. Grange-over-Sands, a Victorian resort 3 miles to the south-east, has more facilities. To the North are the main Lakes within easy driving distance, with the Windermere Steamers leaving from Lakeside, which itself can be reached from nearby Haverthwaite using the Haverthwaite steam railway.
