“A lovely stay on every level”
Reviewed 16 July 2012

This B&B is located about 7 minutes drive from Carmel (which is a lovely place to visit - do go to the Village Shop!) and less than 30 minutes from Windermere (where we stayed two nights before our final night here). Cate has converted her large family home into a little haven in the countryside. We went for walk down to the little church in the afternoon and my husband went for a run in the morning; both thoroughly enjoyable! The house itself is two stories with two bedrooms - the South room has a separate but very impressive bathroom with bath; and the East room, where we stayed, has a private ensuite bathroom with shower that is actually upstairs from/above the bedroom itself. This room had an impressive window that looked out into the fields and caught the morning rays of sunlight (probably not best if you're a light sleeper - maybe ask for the South room). In addition, there are 3 separate living areas - a formal lounge, a relaxed sitting area and the bright and cheerful conservatory; not to forget the large garden with multiple tables and grassed areas. It feels like a home that you instantly feel welcome into. Cate herself is super lovely and very helpful. Plus, she cooks an impressive breakfast. We had the bircher museli, fruit & yoghurt, and scrambled eggs with smoked salmon, and it was fresh and of the highest quality ingredients. If I had one niggle it was that I wish the bed in the room was a (UK) King rather than a Double, but we slept brilliantly anyway. Oh, and did I mention that Cate had left us freshly cooked brownies and bowl of fresh fruit in our rooms on arrival? Just another little touch of hospitality that seems to be her signature.

Room Tip: Go the South room if you want a bath and the East room if you want a private ensuite shower. You'...

We stayed just one night, but would have loved to stay longer. Broughton House is lovely and Cate could not have been more welcoming. The room was so comfortable and the home made brownies were a delicious and lovely touch. A hearty and delicious breakfast which included Cate's Chicken's eggs scrambled with smoked salmon and home made bread - perfect!

Thank you so much for your review - I'm glad you enjoyed your stay at Broughton House. It was a pleasure to meet you, and "chapeau" to the boys for their fantastic cycling effort. I'm reading their tweets with great interest.

By far this was one of the best B&B's I have stayed in for some time. Staying in Ben's yurt it was comfortable and welcoming after a long day, very clean throughout with a wonderful shower to
wake you up in the morning.

In the morning you are greeted by the friendly host and shown to the conservatory for what i can only describe as truly the best breakfast I have had in a very very long time. Everything was packed full of flavour, especially the tomatoes cooked with a special pepper taking them to another level! and the eggs from the hen's in the garden!, the array of condiments was extensive, and the coffee ....... .WOW!!

You really do get made to feel welcome, top tip book early as this newly opened b&b will surely become fully booked as soon as the word gets out.

My wife and I came up here for a weekend at the beginning of April and had a fantastic stay. Our room was magnificent with a very comfy bed and great en-suite shower and loo. It's nice and close to Cartmel which has plenty to offer in terms of food and drink and our hostess was very helpful. She also made a cracking breakfast! We will definitely be going back.
