Information on Cottage Holidays in Broughton in Furness


This small market town in the Furness area of Cumbria has good independent shops and is a good base to explore Coniston and other destinations in the scenic Lake District. The nearest railway station is at Foxfield, which is around two miles away. Broughton is situated on the estuary of the River Duddon and the Duddon valley is a popular place for hill walkers, including those wanting to ascend The Old Man of Coniston and Harter Fell. For families wanting a more leisurely walk, there are plenty of opportunities, including Beacon Fell and Beacon Tarn. Several woodland and riverside walks will provide everyone with fresh air and exercise. Cyclists and mountain bikers also have several routes around the fells to follow and canoeists cite the River Duddon as an exciting and challenging place to indulge their sport.

If you want to get out on the water for a family outing, there are various boat cruises available on Lake Coniston. This can be combined with a walk round the shore of the lake. A regular service, taking about 50 minutes, goes to Brantwood, an excellent country house with gardens that was the former home of the art critic and philanthropist, John Ruskin. Many people enjoy cruising on a timber boat on the water in the traditional way.

Broughton’s Georgian market square is of historic interest, with its obelisk erected to commemorate the Golden Jubilee of King George III in 1810. It has been a market town since Elizabethan times and two old fish slabs made from slate from which fish used to be sold are still in evidence. On the first day of August each year, the townspeople witness an old tradition when a proclamation is read out on the steps of the obelisk, stating that no one should short change their customers and everyone must keep the Queen’s peace. The old stocks in the square are a reminder of the consequences of not following these rules! St. Mary’s Church, constructed in Saxon times, is thought to be the town’s oldest building.

Iron ore mining was an important industry in the local area and visitors can learn all about it at the nearby Duddon Ironworks, a blast furnace fired by charcoal. Closed since 1866, it’s now a fascinating visitor attraction.

Broughton in Furness is an ideal location, whether your interests run to outdoor pursuits, history or simply relaxing in your comfortable Cumbrian country cottage holiday home with a good supper and a cheery fire.
