We booked Cate' s b&b after reading the brilliant reviews on here and we were not disappointed! We had a meal booked in Cartmel and were going to stay in the village but the reviews of Broughton House were so good we decided we couldn't miss the chance to meet Cate and stay here. We are so glad we did-...

Hello Lisa - and thank you so much for the lovely review. I'm really pleased that you enjoyed your stay at BH so much - and I'm just glad that I was only across the lane, when rescue was required - it was a chilly night, and sitting on a freezing front doorstep isn't the best end to a special...

Surely all the reviews cannot be wrong..they are not wrong..they are bang on! Its a lovely looking property in the quieter southern lakes, but only ten minutes from southern Windermere. The owner Cate is great, the rooms just as described only better, the breakfast is amazing, so much choice, and the pets are friendly. Book it now!

My partner and I stayed here in the summer holidays on our way back from visiting the lakes. We decided we wanted another night so instead of heading back down south to find somewhere closer to home we looked at places near the lakes to spend our final night. After a quick search we came across Broughton House, we had...
