Cate was a fantastic host and made us feel at home straight away. She was always on hand if we had any questions but also gave us our privacy. We will definitely be recommending this place to family and friends. Thanks Cate!

What can I say apart from amazing. Stunning accommodation in stunning surroundings. Lots of additional details made the trip even better like having the most delicious biscuits and brownies there when we arrived. Friendly hostess with a lovely friendly dog (it's just a shame the dog we brought wasn't as well behaved) I would definitely return again (but we would leave Spud at home this time.

Beautiful stay in this place. The garden house was perfect. We really enjoy this moment. Cate welcomed us very well, we liked all the attentions. We walked around Coniston thanks to her recommandations and it was perfect.

Thanks Cate for sharing your brilliant home with us, everthing was wonderful. Especially the tuplips! Loved exploring the Lakes, we loved every minute. The cottage is so cosy and well equipped. We might join trusted house sitters to come back. Cheers Lyn and John

Peaceful location and comfy bed, excellent shower. This cottage is so relaxing with everything you need and lots of welcome extras you don't get anywhere else. We enjoyed our 2 night break, wished we'd booked for longer and will return again. Need I say more?

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
