The Lake District is a great all-year round destination. There is a vast amount of walking and mountaineering in Lakeland, the south-west Cumbria coast and Furness peninsula. Information in the cottage includes maps, route sheets and guide books to borrow during your stay. 


Our prices are competitive and we give good deals out of season. Broughton and the south-west Lakes are unspoilt by tourism, great for a peaceful and relaxing stay


Walks from the cottage include Wilson Park in the village (200m), with lovely children’s play park, disused railway line (180m) from Broughton to Torver (6 ½ miles), and Broughton Tower parkland, all great for dogs.


Some suggestions:

Coniston range

Sca Fell

Scafell Pike

Langdale Pikes

The nearest lake is Coniston, 10-15 minutes drive (6 ½ miles) to Torver; alternatively cycle or walk along the old railway line starting at the bottom of the hill past the garage
