a lovely, self-contained building, overlooking the garden at Broughton House. Well equipped kitchen, sitting room, sunny verandah, double bedroom, shower room - do your own cooking, or dine out in Cartmel. Dogs are welcome so long as they don't sleep on the bed

The space
The Garden House is the perfect base for two to spend a few days exploring this quieter part of the southern Lake District. There is an open plan living area, featuring a compact kitchen equipped with a fan oven, and hob, a fridge, a microwave, a Dualit toaster, and a kettle. Emma Bridgewater crockery, adds a homely touch, and you should find everything you need to prepare and cook food in the kitchen. I provide some milk, eggs from my hens, tea, coffee, sugar, and home-made brownies and shortbread. A small dining area to the rear gives views north up the Cartmel valley, and a sunny verandah, with a gas BBQ., at the front looks over the garden. Throw open the double doors and let the sun in in the summer, or cosy up by the electric log fire, and watch TV in the winter. The bedroom has a standard double bed, and the en-suite shower room has a 2m shower. There is room for a travel cot, if required, and dogs are welcome so long as they don't sleep on the bed

Where you’ll be

Field Broughton, United Kingdom

Field Broughton is a little hamlet, two miles north of Cartmel. There is no shop, pub, or public transport. The lanes are quiet, and great for cycling, and there are good walks that take you to Cartmel, or up to High Newton which is eagerly anticipating the opening of a gastro pub, which has been taken over by an ex l'enclume chef. The Crown will be opening in the autumn of 2020 and is a twenty minute walk from Broughton House

I have always lived in the Lake District, and - for many years - worked in Ambleside, alongside my late husband, who opened 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 nine 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 has a hostel in Colombia, so that amazing country is my top destination for now. I also enjoy a spot of light globe-trotting in my Citroen 2cv., Modestine. Closer to home when time allows - I am very happy walking the beautiful Lakeland fells, with Puffin, my Border Collie

During your stay

I am usually around to greet you, on arrival, but if I am out I simply leave the key in the door so that you can walk in and make yourselves at home. I always enjoy meeting my guests, so do say hi if you see me. Anything extra you need, just give me a shout as I only live next door
