Spacious Holiday Rental, Broughton in Furness

What a setting for this 17th century detached traditional farmhouse found in an enviable secluded position surrounded by 25 acres of glorious Lake District countryside.

Close by to the southern tip of Coniston Water alongside a working Lakeland farm, blissfully picturesque in every sense. This substantial farmhouse is the perfect setting for family holidays and sociable gatherings surrounded by quintessential Lakeland life and with breathtaking views in every direction including super view towards Coniston Old Man. A network of walks are available straight from your doorstep in every direction and if searching for a peaceful spot to escape the everyday, you have found it here at Raisthwaite Farm.

Accommodation in detail
A private drive leads over a cattle grid to Raisthwaite Farm with ample parking outside; bring your bikes as there is plenty of space to keep them here. At the front of the farmhouse is a traditional entrance porch leading into the entrance hall but we prefer to access the property directly into the breakfast farmhouse kitchen which has everything you may need. There is a dining room being ideal for formal gatherings complete with original working range incorporating a hearty open fire. There are two separate living rooms, each with relaxing furnishings and woodburning stoves, perfect for cosy evenings. On this level is a shower room and useful utility room. Staircase to first floor with two king size bedrooms, one double and one twin bedroom, each enjoying the dreamy countryside views and on this level is the modern house bathroom with shower over the bath. Upstairs to the magnificent loft suite with sumptuous super king sleigh bed. This is a romantic space with star gazing roof lights, a dressing area and all open plan complete with roll top slipper bath, what a great place for a good soak after a day on the fells! There is WC and wash basin for this room too and we think there will be a fight to get this bedroom first...
Outside the garden is a delight with orchard and direct access to the 25 acres of land and with patio and garden furniture being a must for al-fresco living on sunny days.

LocationCumbria & The Lake District

The rural county of Cumbria is one of the most attractive in England. It contains the whole of the area known as the Lake District, as well as the northern part of the Pennines mountain range and, somewhat counter-intuitively, a part of the Yorkshire Dales.

The county is replete with attractions for the visitor, its historic heritage ranging from houses and gardens to stone circles and activities ranging from walking and climbing to watersports and fishing. Cumbria's lakes, valleys and fells can loosely be broken down into eight areas.

The North Lakes are the most popular with the serious outdoor enthusiast and the South Lakes draw most of the holidaymakers. The Western Lakes are less busy but still hold some varied attractions and appeal to the walkers as well as families and groups. They are home to England's tallest mountain, known as Scafell Pike.

East Lakes has its quota of mountains too, including the well-known Helvellyn, and is a fairly quiet area. Visit the Eden Valley and North Pennine area for wilderness, castles and rural villages, or perhaps consider North and South Cumbria. In the former we find Hadrian's Wall and the city of Carlisle. In the latter, coastal resorts and the biggest town, Kendal. Finally, the edge of the Yorkshire Dales is a beautiful part of Cumbria with country pubs, easy walking, and a thriving arts scene.
