Description

Greety Gate House is a gorgeous character property less than a mile from the pretty village of Broughton in Furness with its shops and country pubs.

The ideal location for two families holidaying together, or for a group of friends celebrating a special occasion, Greety Gate House offers high-quality accommodation for eight people in this beautiful character property.

Refurbished to a high standard, this charming holiday home has plenty of character including original beams and a wood burning stove in the open plan living and dining room. The conservatory is the perfect place to take in the lovely views of the surrounding countryside and relax after a busy day sightseeing. The Shaker style kitchen is fully equipped and there's a separate utility room perfect for muddy boots. There's also a ground floor cloakroom with wash basin and WC. The accommodation is laid out over three floors with two boutique hotel style double bedrooms, both with en-suite bathrooms, on the first floor with views out to the Dutton estuary. At the top of the house, there's a large bedroom with 4 single beds - ideal for children - and a bathroom with bathtub, hand basin and WC.

The garden at Greety Gate House is particularly lovely with a lawn surrounded by mature shrubs and borders, a summerhouse and garden seating to take in the views towards the Duddon Estuary and nearby Black Combe Fell. There are plenty of different areas to explore including the feature pond, and the garden is fully enclosed making it perfect for children and pets. There's also off road parking for 3 cars.

With plenty of walks and open countryside on the doorstep, plus the lovely village of Broughton in Furness, you won't have to venture far from Greety Gate House to find something to do. Ideally situated between Lake Windermere and Coniston Water, both a 15-minute drive, the immediate area is filled with family-friendly attractions including Go Ape, the Lakeside and Haverthwaite Railway, South Lakes Wildlife Park and Aquarium of the Lakes.

The Lake District is Britain's most popular national park and no wonder - there really is something for everyone. From superb historical buildings like Muncaster Castle to award-winning food and drink, and of course the spellbinding scenery of cloud-topped mountains and shimmering lakes, the Lakes are an area of outstanding natural beauty tailor-made for a family holiday. Enjoy a lake cruise around Windermere on one of the famous steamers, or enjoy some of the finest walking country in the world.

Perfect for families or a large group of friends, Greety Gate House is the ideal starting point for an exploration of the Lake District at any time of year.
Dating back to the 11th century, Broughton-in-Furness is situated in the south western corner of the Lake District and is just six miles from Coniston Water. There is much to please the visitor such as a pretty, cobbled square complete with a splendid horse chestnut tree, enclosed by shops, pubs and homes, many of them Georgian in origin. The village provides an ideal base for a walking or climbing holiday, with ample opportunity to explore the rugged beauty of the Duddon Valley and the quieter Lake District fells. Norman Nicholson, one of Britain's finest 20th century poets and William Wordsworth, both immortalised this area in their writing and poetry.

‘This was a great base for us to visit the lakes and family in Barrow. The cottage had all we needed and the welcome flowers, chocolates, wine etc were very much enjoyed. Even the dog was left some treats! The location of the cottage is lovely with uninterrupted views of the Dudden estuary. Easy access to the Dudden valley anc further afield. We will be back and would recommend it.’

‘We were very impressed with this house, it's very spacious and eight people can stay very comfortably with lots of car parking space. Dog friendly. Appreciated the welcome pack on arrival with wine and chocolates, plus tea bags and milk! Kitchen provided everything we needed, bedrooms and bathrooms are beautifully decorated and the house throughout is very clean and well maintained. The gardens are delightful and the house feels very private and not overlooked. The owners are very welcoming without being intrusive and I would highly recommend staying in Greety Gate House.’

‘Really nice cottage, ideal for family getting together! Good size overall and little extras such as wine/biscuits were really nice. We stayed Friday-Monday and it rained most of the time, so we made the most of the wood burning stove!’

‘My husband and I stayed for 4 nights with three of our Grandchildren and their Great Granddad plus Alfie our dog and what a lovely time we had. The cottage is beautiful with amazing space inside and out for everyone to enjoy the children especially loved their bedroom in the attic and exploring the garden. The cottage had everything we needed and was spotless with no obvious signs of it being dog friendly (no smell) we hope to visit again.’

‘We booked last minute as we were planning to go up scarfell pike. We booked to stay for three nights. It was easy enough to find using Google maps on our phones. it is situated between foxfield and broughton with about 4/5 pubs in the area. Recommend bringing cash before you arrive as there is no cash machine at the local bank. The cottage is attached via a garage to the owners house next door. The cottage is very nice inside with wooden beamed ceilings and traditional furniture. We were greeted with a welcome card and a bottle of wine and milk in the fridge. Downstairs there is a nice log burner which adds to the character, The decor throughout the cottage is very nice and comfortable. We all agreed that the duvets were especially good. On our first morning we got up quite early around 6ish as its about an hour to the start point of our hike and there was no hot water or heating in the house which wasn't ideal, i know we could have rung the owners but i doubt they wanted a call so it was cold showers. When we got back the radiators were only on for set periods so drying our clothes after a soggy day up Scarfell took a little while, but a log fire made up for that. The kitchen was a good size and had everything you would need, oven, microwave, toaster etc and there is lots of fridge space. There were 4 toilets, 1 shower, 1 shower/bath and a bath. The garden we didn't venture into too much due to weather but it seems nice and there was a sizable conservatory. Local village is small and we ended up going to conniton as there was a little more going on there in terms of pub and food as the pubs in broughton close at a decent time. Overall we were all very happy with our say and would highly recommend staying here.’
