Cate is a very friendly and welcoming hostess and gave us very yummy homemade shortbread and brownies. The garden house was lovely and had everything we needed for our stay. It was in the perfect spot for our visit to Cartmel races.

The only downside to staying at Cate's place is having to leave. Such a lovely location and a great host.

Fabulous location and weather to match. Great welcome, spectacularly yummy brownies and an apartment which is both well appointed and comfortable - we were in the Garden House. Eggs from Cate's chickens were a bonus and a great addition to some breakfast essentials you need to bring with you. Quiet and secluded this is a great retreat, comfortable and well equipped. We would definitely return if we are in the locality. Many thanks to Cate for being a great host.

Great place to stay. Had everything you could need and was very clean. Cate left us eggs, milk, brownies and shortbread! Lovely walk (about 30mins) down into Cartmel. If you want a taxi back, make sure you book in advance. Would definitely recommend and stay again. Thanks!

The Garden House is perfect for a couple, with everything you need in a wonderfully peaceful location, perfect for exploring the south lakes. Great value and great attention to detail from Cate - including home baking!

What a great stay in a quaint and comfy cottage! From the fresh eggs to the robes in the closet, everything was perfect! Thanks so much Cate - hope to be able to return some day!

We had a brilliant time at Cate's! The place was very clean and tidy. The kitchen was a reasonable size and we weren't doing any major cooking so it was perfect for us. Cate left us some eggs from her hens which made a delicious scrambled eggs for breakfast. The house was warm and comfortable. Very comfy bed and the shower was fantastic! Cate had so many little touches that made our stay - I really appreciated the shower cap as you don't always get these even in nice hotels!! Field Broughton was an excellent base for exploring South Lakeland.

I have always lived in the Lake District, and - for many years - worked in Ambleside, alongside my late husband, who had one of the first outdoor shops in the UK. We chose to live in the Cartmel Valley, as it is quieter than the Central Lakes. I have been welcoming guests to Broughton House for the last four years, and really enjoy meeting people from all over the world. I love to travel, and especially enjoy getting off the beaten track. My son is opening a hostel in Colombia, this year, so that is my top destination for now, but cross country skiing, in the southern alps, is also something I enjoy. Closer to home when time allows - I am very happy walking the beautiful Lakeland fells, with Puffin, my border collie, for company
