    About this property

    This very attractive 1672 coaching inn, is in the heart of Broughton-in-Furness, and is perfectly placed for outdoor pursuits.
    This holiday property is situated in the heart of the historic, 11th-century village of Broughton-in-Furness, which is full of old world charm and is the gateway to the beautiful Duddon Valley. The Griffin is a beautiful, 400-year-old, Grade II listed, 1672 coaching inn which features a light and airy sitting room with open fire, a well-equipped kitchen, three lovely bedrooms, one en-suite, and a spacious bathroom. Outside, it benefits from a small garden area accessed from the back door. 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, including 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.

    Close to the sea, this attractive town makes an inspiring choice from which to further explore a magical heartland of the western lakes. Take a trip to the lovely Langdales, Dunnerdale and Ulpha, which offer some challenging high level treks, along with many low level paths and trails over moorland. In just 8 miles, enjoy a pleasant drive west, which takes visitors past the Coniston Mountain Range to Coniston Water. Here, explore the lake shore, or from the village hire a boat. Finally, for a great day out, head north towards Ravenglass and Muncaster Castle. This property is perfectly placed for activities such as watersports, horse riding, fishing and cycling. Ulverston is just 10 miles, with Laurel and Hardy Museum. Village shops, pubs and restaurant within 100 yards.

    The Griffin (LP8) is directly in front of The Little Griffin (LUW) and can be booked together to accommodate up to 10 guests.

    "Love the village of Broughton in Furness, it has everything you need, great local bakers, butchers, grocers, PO and 3 super pubs. Cottage is conveniently located right in the centre of the village, is lovely and warm and cosy with plenty of space and character."

    "This was a return visit, which indicates our very positive experience in this cottage. Facilities are well above average. It is spacious, comfortable and very tastefully furnished with antiques. The central location in Broughton means that there are excellent pubs and shops within 200 yards. On the edge of the Lakes National Park but close to beautiful Dunnerdale and within easy driving distance of Coniston, Eskdale and Wasdale. The price was much higher than last year but we felt it was well worth it."

    "Fabulous old cottage steeped in history with period furnishing, tons of character and with lots of room to relax. A great location to explore the lakes and West Cumbria.Only a couple of minor issues; Mobile signal is non existent within the thick cottage walls, although we were able to make calls from the upstairs front window seat, however the BT WiFi was great for messenger calls. The log fire in the lounge, although lovely & warming emits some smoke into the lounge, even with doors/windows open to create draft. The grate does not sit fully into the redesigned fireplace which is most likely the cause.These did not spoil our enjoyment and the family had a wonderful time in this lovely cottage."

    "Fantastic stay. Lovely cottage in a nice little village. There's very little in the village, but the pubs are great and it's a good location to get to supermarkets or into the heart of the lakes if you want. Equipment in the cottage was all spot on. Would definitely stay again!"
    Rachel ‐ 14 Apr 2018
    "Lovely home from home in a central village location which retains its country charm and privacy. Quirky and historic yet all the modern amenities you need it is comfortable and welcoming. Try the Old Kings Head and the Black Cock Inn for meals but you’ll need to book. Shop at Melville Tyson’s butcher and grocers and the Village Bakery. All within a stone’s throw of the Griffin. We will be back!"
