Built around 1810, the charming Broughton House is located in 2 acres of gardens, south of the Lake District National Park. It has hearty Aga breakfasts and spacious bedrooms. Produce used in the breakfast is locally sourced and includes eggs from the hens in the garden. The bread is homemade and lighter options such as scrambled eggs and Cartmel Valley smoked salmon are also available. Individually decorated, the bedrooms have wooden floors and a large, luxurious bathroom with free toiletries. They also feature tea/coffee making facilities and garden views. The village of Cartmel, with its 12th-century priory is just 2 miles from the Broughton and junction 36 of the M6 motorway is a 20-minute drive away. There is free parking at the property.
