Broughton in Furness is an unspoiled delightful area of the Lake District

April 2019
Cottage was very comfortable and large enough for all 9 of us and the dog.. There was a very nice welcome pack of milk, butter and cake. Tea, coffee and sugar also available. Owner very friendly and helpful. The garden was large and the children had fun with their egg hunt.

The accommodation was everything we expected and more.. A lovely family size house which was well equipped in respect of the kitchen, bedrooms, bathroom and living area. The hosts had provided a welcome pack and contact details. There were plenty of games and jigsaws to keep the children occupied. The hosts had also emailed prior to our arrival with handy information about the local area and facilities. All in all a very enjoyable break for all of the family.

Great house, excellent location with pubs and shops close by.. Easy access to other attractions.
August 2018
I stayed at Church View with my family for 4 nights. What a gorgeous house in a beautiful village. There is so much to do and see locally. The host was amazing too, very warm, friendly and accommodating. I would definitely recommend it!
August 2018
Cottage itself was okay and had everything needed for a weeks stay.. HOWEVER, the owners had failed to point out that the cottage is located on a very busy road (for a small village) which is used as a ‘rat run’ by local traffic. Due to a ‘stop/give way road marking for oncoming traffic from opposite direction’ there were vehicles constantly stopping and pulling away right outside the dining room/under a main bedroom. This traffic continued right through Saturday night /Sunday morning and commenced again on the Monday at 0345). Whilst traffic noise may not be an issue with some guests using the property we found it extremely intrusive and after just two nights and a total of 6 hours sleep we made the decision to leave and return home. Sitting outside ‘at the end of the day with a cool drink’ was not something we would recommend unless you enjoy watching/listening to the constant traffic pass by approx 6ft from the coolest area of the garden. We were informed by the owner on arrival that the road was used as “a rat run for the Sellafield workers” - some 10,000 are employed there and many come from the Barrow in Furness area which means they pass through the village. However the owner also said “get used to it, it is what it is”. This reference to the traffic and the problems it caused was the only mention, NO INFORMATION in respect of this is given in any of the advertising literature. When contacted on this matter (via Sykes) and a refund of 50% of the cost suggested the owners reply was “we should have shut the windows/slept in the back bedrooms/property is double glazed” - I would like to point out that the night temperature was in the 20s, closing the windows was not an option due to the heat and even if you closed the window the noise was still instrusive. As for sleeping in the back bedrooms this made no difference at all as this was tried (and we had not come on holiday to sleep in single beds in a back bedroom). According to newspaper articles the village has had concerns re traffic volume/noise for some time (most recent report in local paper Nov 2017); residents are concerned about the stress due to noise/volume etc it is causing them and other visitors to the village. ‘Homemade’ 20mph traffic signs have been made and put up at each end of the road. There is also an official warning sign on the busy A road approx 150yds from property stating ‘Ignore Sat Nav instructions’ urging vehicles not to turn into Church Street. As of today 15/07/2018 the owners have failed to respond to messages sent to them by Sykes regarding the 50% refund (which I consider fair under the circumstances) - I feel we have been totally misled with the location of the property and had there been mention of any possible disturbance to guests by traffic noise etc made on the web advert then we would certainly NOT have booked the property. Maybe Sykes need to rethink their ‘check list’ when visiting properties in the future. CHURCH VIEW COTTAGE details certainly need updating.
August 2018
Excellent accommodation in a beauty location worth every penny.. The owner of the house we stayed at was very helpful. Complimentary bread/butter and homemade cake on arrival plus a discount voucher for the local butcher. Wonderful would recommend highly
Mrs Angwin
August 2018
Fabulous home in lovely friendly village.. Ideal position for exploring the lake district with some lovely waljs and beaches close by. The owners are close by but not at all intrusive. Fabulous place for families or friends get together. Beautifully refurbished, give it a try

This cottage is perfect. Very well equipped and spacious. It is opposite a lovely field full of sheep. I have seen the review re the noise of the road. We simply didn't experience the level of noise described. It is in a village very near amenities. Three excellent pubs and village butchers and bakers. All only five mins away. So I suppose if you want to be near things you have to expect vehicles. If you want complete silence then something more remote may be more suitable for your needs. We had a fantastic time at this cottage with our two dogs who were welcome everywhere. Will be re booking

July 2018
Very enjoyable holiday.. Church view is very good value for money compared to other cottages of this size. As mentioned by other guests the road noise was a nuisance for two of our party. It was not possible to move rooms and due to the hot weather windows needed to be open. It did not, however spoil the holiday. It is comfortable and the important things: bathrooms, bedding ,towels were very clean and comfortable the kitchen was clean enough but a few areas eg freezer drawers, cutlery drawers etc had been missed. Again it did not affect the holiday. Ideal house for a large group with children and dogs. Lovely area and nice pubs in the village. Shops very good but pricey. Welcome pack a nice touch. Owner very pleasant and helpful.
Mrs Last

Great location ideal base for walking holiday.. It would be helpful to have grab rails for the shower over the bath!!

July 2018
Cottage adequate for weeks stay. HOWEVER, BE WARNED the traffic volume/noise from the road located approx 10ft from windows is constant and noisy. Traffic did not really cease Sat/Sun morning, built up during the day and was constant until almost midnight. It commenced again at 0345 on Monday morning. This road is used as a ‘rat run’ by locals and those heading to Sellafield just down the road. Villagers and residents have been concerned for some time, home made speed signs posted st each end of Church St. ‘Give Way for oncoming traffic’ is right outside property. Sat Nav on main road advises drivers not to turn off main road located approx 150yds from property but this is ignored. If you want peace and quiet in the evening/night and early morning then maybe you should reconsider.

This property is seriously underated..
Mrs Harris
April 2018
The house was very roomy, so that, even with eight adults there, we were able to find space without crowding.. It was also warm and cosy. The two dogs had space for their beds without being in the way. We had not visited Broughton before, but found it to be an excellent base for exploring the south Lakes, and also the coastline with its bird reserves at Millom and South Walney. There were endless possibilities for walks, from the village itself or further afield on the fells. We noted how friendly the local folk were and the village shops are superb, with butcher, grocer, greengrocer, bakery and post office providing everything one might need for a week's stay. We would go there again, and book the same property if we had the numbers to warrant it.
Mr Kay
March 2018
Very good cottage, excellent location, had everything we needed..
Mrs Blake
March 2018
Well what a lovely cottage, everything we needed and more.. We felt at home straight away and loved the village of Broughton, its bakery, and and friendly people. We took a roll of temporary fencing to secure an area in the garden for our dogs because as previous reviews stated, for dogs smaller than a labrador type there are wide railings to escape through. There is however a safe stoned area just outside the kitchen so we could have managed without fencing the garden but for our young Springer Spaniel and Boarder terrier it was an added bonus. The area was perfect, close to the Fells and also only 7 miles to the beautiful beach at Silecroft.
Mr Beesley
December 2017
The cottage is extremely well located walking distance to locality amenities.. It is very well equipped and very comfortable, I would recommend this property for anyone wishing to explore the Southern area of the lake district.
Mr Wallbank
November 2017
Comfy and cosy house yet spacious enough for are party of eight adults, situated within five minutes walk from all village amenities.. Excellent situation for exploring South and West Lakeland.
September 2017
Had a lovely week at Church View (5 adults and 2 dogs.) The cottage had everything you could possibly need in the kitchen so we cooked quite a few evenings. Rooms are all very large and spacious, beds comfortable and lovely shower downstairs. Our dogs are quite big so we didn't have a problem with the slightly large gaps in railings outside (although we did keep an eye on them in case) but i wouldn't say it was suitable for a small dog as they could easily get through. Had a delicious Sunday lunch at High Cross just up the hill from the house with great views, also a lovely dinner at one of the pubs. Bakery, butchers and green grocers 5 min walk- lovely quality too! If you have dogs definately go to Silecroft beach at low tide, our dogs absolutly loved it and the views are stunning rain or shine. Took a trip to Muncaster castle too, worth it for the bird of prey shows! All in all Church view was the perfect house and situation to go off and explore. Would definitely go again!
September 2017
This was the first time I had used Sykes Cottages and I found the whole process very easy.. I appreciate the email communications I still receive informing me of new properties and offers available as I know I will be using them again. Regarding our holiday, the property "Church View" in Broughton-in-furness was perfect. The welcome we received from the owners was lovely and included fresh bread, butter, milk and a cake which after a long drive was very much appreciated.
Mr Trigg
July 2017
The property was exactly as described, it perfectly met the needs of our group of 3 couples, it was well equipped and furnished to a good standard.. We very much liked the village of Broughton with 3 Pubs, a Post Office, excellent Butchers & Bakers and convenience store. There were lovely walks from the village and the Southern Lake District area had plenty for us to do over the week. A very enjoyable holiday.

Mrs Sargent

The welcome pack provided was unexpected and excellent.. The house has everything you could need and is comfortable and to a high standard. The owner was friendly and very helpful and a very small issue we had was dealt with immediately with no fuss. The discount voucher for the local shop was an added bonus. The views from the property are amazing .

Wonderful little cottage that provided a perfect base for our holiday! The local village was lovely and the village bakery and butcher were excellent!
Mr Clubb
April 2016
This was a great base for touring around within easy reach of the local village with excellent pubs and shops. It was very friendly and welcoming to both humans and dogs, a spacious and warm accommodation with everything you could ask for. the owner was helpful and attentive in discreet way. We much preferred this part of the Lakes to the more touristy bit further North and East.
Mrs Hodge
March 2016
Had a very comfortable stay. There was plenty of room and very comfortable beds. The owner was very pleasant and informative. It was in a lovely location, there was nothing to fault.
Mrs Chadwick

We love staying at Church View! This was our 3rd time here! Church View is everything you want in a holiday home! It was well equipped with lovely big rooms and we always enjoy the log burner! We will definitely be booking again in the future!

The cottage was a good size well thought out. Heating was very good, didn't need to light the wood burner. The location was excellent. Local pubs shops were close by had everything you needed, very good!

We booked the cottage as the base for my Aunt's 60th birthday celebrations. The property exceeded all expectations. Lots of space, great wood burning stove, large kitchen, 2 minute walk to the village (with its fantastic pubs) and Dog friendly. We were met and checked in with ease and found ourselves at home very quickly. The bedrooms are good sizes and all everything you need. Lush fluffy towels were also nice. Great value get away in a great village in a perfect spot for exploring the rest of the lake district. Fun bumping into the Paul (the postman and also husband of Ann the owner) in the pub as well as Phoebe (the owners daughter) working behind the bar in the Black Cock pub in the village. We can highly recommend the above mentioned pub as well as the Village Butchers.
Mr Fortune
May 2015
In a good location on the edge of the village. The cottage was comfortable and homely, and was very suitable for the whole family (including two dogs). There were nice walks around area and the village of Broughton was very pleasant with local shops, cafe's and pubs. The owners were friendly and helpful.
Mr Stinton
April 2015
Everything was great, it was the best value cottage we have stayed at ever. We had everything we wanted..except the weather! Even the bad weather was catered for with the roaring fire and extensive board games. We loved it and the owner was helpful and relaxed about everything.
Mr Watson
February 2015
Church View is a fabulous place to explore the Lake District. The house itself is a cosy and warm base for any holiday. The owners are very friendly and informative. Broughton-in-Furness village is very quaint with the bakers and butcher's serving high quality food. There are also a number of great walks that start at the square. I would definitely stay here again.
Mr Healey
February 2015
Large detached building with nice sized bedrooms and living room, plenty of parking space, lovely views of the Church estuary and a large secure grassed garden for my dog. Everything we needed was provided and the owners are very friendly and helpful. The village with plentiful pubs is lovely, the locals are friendly and there are a lot of picturesque walks from the village where a car is not required, especially the nearby parks to the east. The WiFi was a bonus also.
Mrs Stephens

Had another amazing week at this house. The house was always lovely and warm even in the colder days and is big enough that nobody is on top of each other.
September 2014
We had a fantastic holiday, lovely house which has been restored to a very high standard. Garden is lovely, our dogs loved lazing in the sun! Lovely house, very cosy, comfortable and relaxing.
Miss Ward
August 2014
We were a party of 8 adults, a baby and two dogs and this property was large enough to accommodate us all. We were greeted with a warm welcome. The bedrooms were all large and the kitchen, living and dining room were all of a decent size that we could all be in one room at the same time and not feel overcrowded. The garden was also great and had a large BBQ which we took advantage of. This property was exactly what we were looking for in terms of location, plenty of walking and set in a lovely little quaint village with the main tourist attractions not too far away. The pubs in the village were very welcoming, served amazing food and allowed dogs. I would definitely recommend!
August 2014
This lovingly restored and high specification rental house was spacious enough for three of us to almost live independently of each other but come together for meals and the evenings. Three doctors stayed here in June 2014 - we rarely meet except for occasional annual holidays together and this property was a perfect solution to our need for space and comfort. The railed garden is safe for dogs (and children) and given the south aspect the garden which has terrific lawns was perfect for warm al fresco breakfasts and then lying out in the sun for a while. The views towards the sea across fields of sheep and the church to the left are delightful and the proximity to the village itself made for easy and classy food shopping. The bakers and butchers as well as the post office are all you need, but the gifts of bread, cake and milk upon arrival were a nice touch c/o Paul. The owners are very proximate and they both called by to say hello and chatted amiably wanting us to be as comfortable as possible. The fact that the sea and vast expanse of beach at Silecroft is but 8 miles away made for both sunny and at times bracing long walks with the dogs. The inland lakes are also easy to get to with both Hartknot and Kirkstone passes well worth a day out. The kitchen and main bathroom are spacious and there is one downstairs loo and shower in case of a mad rush for the main bathroom i the morning? There is a multi fuel stove which we did not test drive, but that would come into its own in the winter and the living space naturally divides into two spaces depending upon how you arrange the sofas. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will return, we think next year? In the meantime I am planning a winter trip to stay again since I am my two Dalmatians love it - and the beach...and the....We give this property an unreserved 5*.

Mrs Rogers

This is probably one of the nicest cottages we've ever stayed at. Everything, from the welcome phone call and emailed directions with useful information about the village, to the cottage itself was above and beyond anything we expected. A beautiful, spacious, well decorated and equipped cottage in a delightful setting. I can't recommend Church View highly enough, we had a wonderful time.
Mrs Johnson

Spacious property for 7 adults and 2 active kids. Big garden, well equipped kitchen, Location excellent in the centre of Broughton village with a great local butcher, green grocer and cafe/ bakery stocking almost everything you could need.

The property was absolutely first class! The owners were very friendly and a pleasure to deal with. The provisions left at the property for us on arrival were a really nice welcoming gesture and were much appreciated..we had everything we needed and more!
Mrs Sibson
April 2014
The cottage was spacious and easily accommodated 6 adults and 3 children. The owners were friendly and helpful. Homely atmosphere and well equipped kitchen, the large dining room table was great for family meals. Broughton has a good childrens play area and a fantastic bakery, good butchers and the locals were nice and friendly. We had a lovely week and would recommend the cottage to friends.
April 2014
This is one of the best properties I have rented for some time, a group of nine adults stayed here for a long weekend. We had loads of room without intruding on somebody else's space. All the facilities are first class from the large kitchen, huge living room, amazing dining room, superb shower room and family bathroom which could have been another bedroom. All said a great rental property with no negatives that come to mind!!

Mr Meyrick
October 2013
The location was very good. The village just a two minute walk away had pubs, restaurants, bakery and a butchers with a grocery/off licence. The cottage was well equipped with all modern conveniences, the rooms were very spacious, linen and towels plus electric were all included. The bathroom was lovely, along with kitchen. Off road parking for four cars was a bonus.
Mr McAteer

A very comfortable house, everyone felt very relaxed as soon as we arrived. We would recommend Broughton-in-furness as a good base to explore the Southern Lake District.
August 2013
I have rented cottages, barns & houses in the lakes for many years too many to mention; This is the most spacious fully equipped property I have rented over the years, we had nine adults stay here for a long weekend with space for everybody to relax I could not praise this place highly enough. The owners are nearby and ready and willing to help if you need them, booking was simple, directions perfect; The pubs in the area were a little disappointing with the exception of the ever brilliant Manor Arms the beer here is as always perfect the other bars need to up their game the beer in one was shocking! About 1/2 mile away is the Blacksmith Arms with good beer and great food catering for a large group with ease highly recommended: The property is clean fresh and on the ball;

Friendly, helpful owners. Good for parking. Spacious, recently refurbished and well-equipped house. Friendly people of Broughton. Excellent pub(s) and first-class local shops. Nice location for exploring South Lakes.
Mr Brown
April 2013
Broughton in Furness is perfect for walkers. It's not too far to the sea or to any of the south peaks. There are two excellent pubs but the bakery in town was a hidden gem, would move to Broughton in Furness for this shop alone. Church view cottage was also a home-from-home, will be coming back.
Mr Casey

The house was wonderful and the owners were on hand if we needed anything. Even gave our granddaughter a Christmas present. They had put up a Christmas tree, left a bottle of mulled wine, bread, milk etc. Also they provided ample amount of towels which was of great benefit. It was perfect in every detail. Would recommend to everyone, weather was awful but the house was so warm and comfortable we enjoyed staying in and relaxing in front of the log fire.
Mrs Read
December 2012
The property was fantastic and so well appointed. The owners of the property were helpful and provided us with a lots of information about the surrounding area. It was dog friendly and everything we could have asked for in a great holiday break.

We found the cottage wonderful! It was home-from-home and we all had a great week together with plenty of space for us all.
November 2012
We stayed over the half term week in October, a family of six. The photos really don't do this cottage justice. It has been tastefully modernised and renovated with everything you could possibly require to make your stay comfortable. The owners are extremely helpful without being intrusive and we received excellent communications from them regarding our holiday. The cottage was very clean, warm and cosy. It's location is superb, close enough to the lakes and the tourist spots but gets you away from the crowds at the end of the day. It is located in the beautiful village of Broughton in Furness with it's fantastic shops, pubs and restaurants, everything you could possibly want in a holiday.
November 2012
We stayed for 10 days in October and didn't want to leave, the house is excellent and has everything you need for a cosy stay. Fab kitchen, lovely bedrooms, beautiful garden and huge living room. The owners we also very lovely and extremely helpful! Great pubs and lots to do in and around the area too. Try horse riding on the beach at Silecroft.
