My family stayed here for 3 nights and we all enjoyed our stay. We were asked if we would like the beds making up before arrival which we thought was a bit strange as this is something you would expect to be done for you anyway. The lady we had to contact for access details was a little abrupt on the phone, so we weren't sure what to expect. On arrival we were pleasantly surprised, however the driveway is quite steep so would recommend parking on the road, plus it is meant to be a shared drive. Not sure why though as the house next door is "a work in progress." A bit of an eyesore to be quite honest, a new build that has been squeezed in the corner and failed to be finished off for some reason. The property is in a quiet little village with a few little local amenities such as a post office, butchers, cafe, small petrol station and 3 pubs. The house is fairly large, however there is not enough seating in the living room for the amount people it sleeps. We found the information booklet provided by owner had quite a few rules in it. Some of which we thought were a little abrupt, as they were written in CAPITAL LETTERS. It also states that you must strip all of your beds on the day of departure which we have never had to do anywhere else we have stayed. Check out time is 10am which is a little unfair considering you can not check in until 3pm on the day of arrival. An extra hour would make all the difference, especially if you have young children and beds to strip before leaving The bathroom fan Is very noisy and hopfully with get fixed. A nice touch is the board games for children.

This holiday cottage was a total pleasure from the moment we contacted the owner about accessing keys, throughout the whole week we wanted for nothing and when it came time to leave we were all wanting to return in the future.. The house was very comfortable, was well equipped and located perfectly to access the beauty of Coniston and Windermere. We would recommend without reservation this lovely house for large families.

Considering the number of occupants in the cottage the seating arrangements could have been greater.. The cottage was very well equipped and central to the local amenities, good pub, bakery & butchers nearby. On the whole everyone enjoyed their stay here and would stay here again

We had a super week at this lovely property.. It was clean, spacious and comfortable and had one of the most well-provisioned kitchens I’ve come across in many years of renting holiday cottages. We loved the garden too and patio area which was super for an outside meal or drink although people with very young children will need to be aware of the steep and uneven stone steps up to the lawn. The cottage is well located. There were seven of us plus baby in the party (one of the seven was a two year old) and our one frustration was that there wasn’t quite enough ‘comfy’ seating to accommodate all of us in the living room of an evening. Parties of six/seven might want to be aware of that. (Luckily we didn’t want to all spend every evening in so most nights it wasn’t a problem)

Good property, but downstairs wet room didn't slope enough down to drain so most .... Good property, but downstairs wet room didn't slope enough down to drain so most of the floor got wet when using it, but shower itself was good

A lovely house in a very nice location. We were very comfortable and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We would definitely return.

A very well positioned cottage - only literally round the corner from the local pubs and shops. The perfect base for a long weekend exploring the Lake District.

Gorse Bank is a good centre for exploring the south west Lake District. It was close to the village and there were two very good pubs. We enjoyed exploring Walney Island and Millom - places we probably wouldn't have visited unless staying at Gorse Bank.

Accommodation was spacious (for 4) and comfortable. The house was warm and cosy. Broughton is a good location for visiting the Lakes, plenty of facilities but far enough away from the tourist hot-spots and with fairly good access to most areas.

The house was very well equipped and close to some nice pubs and basic amenities which meant that despite New Year's weekend, we could easily get some bits and pieces we needed. Also the scenic beauties were only some 20 miles away from the cottage. The fireworks display at the town square was absolutely wonderful!
