in the centre of our picturesque, SW Lakes market town.. Perfect for walking, cycling, exploring & relaxing. Ideal base for touring main Lakes attractions (ideally with own transport as public transport links are poor), lovely to return to calm after day trips out and about. Pubs, restaurant, cafes short walking distances.

The space

3 guest bedrooms in our 6 bedroom home, in the heart of our historic market town, comprises of cozy rooms downstairs. The 3 guest bedrooms, all on the first floor, are 2 double bedrooms and a king-size +single +extra Zbed or cot). Both sitting rooms have real fires. Our dining room can seat 8-10. This means we can comfortably accommodate a group booking of 7/8 (at a specially reduced rate. (Up to 9 if the cot is in room 2).We are ideally suited to family groups with children, we are a very child friendly household! But also great for couples too, or a smaller group. Hairdryers are in 2 rooms, but a third can be made available! All bedrooms have Freeview TV & DVD and also tea/coffee facilities. Free parking in The Square.

Guest access

The shared bathroom is generously sized with separate shower cubicle/bath, next to the bedrooms. There is also our bathroom, on the 2nd floor, for limited use (by arrangement), when larger groups are booked.
Cereals, fruit, toastable goods, fruit juice, tea & coffee are provided daily for breakfast.
Full access to cooking in our superbly equipped kitchen for self-catering (by arrangement). Our lounge may be used during the day or join us in the evening (while we chill after work during cooler evenings), and there is also the cosy family room, with TV, next to the kitchen, leading to our outdoor, decked, dining area at the rear, with a large charcoal bbq available, (by arrangement).

Interaction with guests

We warmly welcome our guests and are happy to impart our wealth of local knowledge and help/advise when wanted. We are friendly folk, happy to chat (over a tea, coffee or something stronger!) or to leave our guests to privacy and quiet. We will generally be in and around in the mornings and evenings. And can usually be found in our main lounge, kitchen or, on warm summers evenings, almost certainly outside at the rear!

Other things to note

We have award winning shops minutes away, Bakery, butcher, grocer, P.O, & more for you to browse, cafes, pubs & restaurant too, all just minutes away on foot. Barrow in Furness (13 miles) is our major shopping town and has everything you would expect of a large town/city. Ulverston is a traditional market town, very quaint, also where a bus to Windermere for those visitors without own transport. The nearest small supermarkets are in Millom (7 miles) and of course, at most of the central lakes tourist areas! There are so many, with Coniston & Windermere just a short drive away. The beautiful Duddon Valley is also well worth exploring. The fells all around us are magnificent. In order to take full advantage of all the main Lakes tourist areas , it would be best to have your own vehicle.

We had a great stay at Sheila's place. She is an excellent host. She was very helpful in everything.

We are so glad that we chose to stay with Sheila for our long weekend to the lake district - it really made all the difference to our trip to the lakes. Broughton-in-furness was a good location for us to access the beautiful fells of the lake district, and Sheila was able to give us suggestions and guidance on how to get the most out of our walks, lend us maps and guides, and even supply some aftersun when we got horribly sunburnt! The room was great and our hosts made us feel comfortable and relaxed throughout our stay. I would have no hesitations in staying again with Sheila in Broughton.

‘What a fantastic time I had staying at Sheila’s place. On a beautiful square in a beautiful town, the house is so homely and comfortable - the room I took was quiet, clean and ideal. Sheila is the absolute perfect host - she knows everything about the Lake District and made my time there richer for it. Thanks so much again for everything - hope to see you again soon!’

Shelia was very welcoming and made you feel at home. Sheila suggested some things to do whilst I was there and leant me the maps and planned my day with me which was brilliant and she got it spot on! Overall really enjoyed my stay and would definitely stay again! Thankyou :)

Broughton-in-Furness is a gem - still small enough that it feels like real people live there, and big enough to have cafes, pubs and an excellent bakery. Easy drive in to hikes in the west and central part of the Lakes. The home was very comfortable, and we appreciated starting out with breakfast and having access the kitchen on a few nights. Thank you!

Response from Sheila:
Thanks Sarah. It was lovely to meet you both and our pleasure to host you. So glad you enjoyed the location... Broughton is just far away enough from the Lakes crowds to get away but near enough for good touring access! Happy that you enjoyed your stay! Best wishes, Sheila and Dave

Sheila & John were very friendly, but also left you to it if you wanted to do your own thing. Had an enjoyable stay & will do my best to visit again if I am in the area. :)

We stayed for two nights during the Broughton Festival of Beer. Sheila and Dave were wonderfully friendly hosts who we happy for us to come and go as we pleased between vising the local pubs! The property is in an ideal location in the centre of Broughton and ideal for visiting the lovely Duddon valley. The bedroom with the king size bed was spacious and comfy. We had a fabulous time.

I've loved living at Laurel Bank since 1996. I used to do B&B here early on. During those few years I had people from all over staying here. It will be good fun to rekindle those days!
I work as a T.A. at a local primary school (since 2000)
My husband, Dave, has lived here since 2003. He has his own business in joinery & carpentry. We love our village life.
Our home is at it's best with more people around. Our children (6 in all) have grown and left the nest (most still near to home), leaving us with 5 spare bedrooms! Our larger families (& friends) are from Liverpool, Nottingham & New Zealand, and they all love visiting us for good company, food, walks and real ale.
We love our local walks, short strolls and lengthier, more challenging, right from our doorstep. We also love our touring caravan, and often choose sites very close to home as our area is so gorgeous.
Travelling the world was a huge part of my life before children, and since Dave and I have hooked up we've enjoyed trips to Bulgaria, Spain, Singapore and best of all, New Zealand, touring in a camper van, north to South, visiting family.
When not working, walking or touring, we relax with good home cooked meals, movies, music, TV, reading, wine, ale........different sorts of all of them.......variety is the spice of life!
We have grand children now, and love their visits and the calm when they've gone home. Our home is very 'child friendly'.
We enjoy meeting new visitors at our friendly home
