A lovely house in a very nice location. We were very comfortable and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We would definitely return.
Mrs Greatrex

A very well positioned cottage - only literally round the corner from the local pubs and shops. The perfect base for a long weekend exploring the Lake District.
Mr Roberts

Gorse Bank is a good centre for exploring the south west Lake District. It was close to the village and there were two very good pubs. We enjoyed exploring Walney Island and Millom - places we probably wouldn't have visited unless staying at Gorse Bank.
Mr Clare

Accommodation was spacious (for 4) and comfortable. The house was warm and cosy. Broughton is a good location for visiting the Lakes, plenty of facilities but far enough away from the tourist hot-spots and with fairly good access to most areas.
Mr Wooltorton

We stayed here the first week in June, when the sun shone all week!!!Gorse bank is a lovely house,spacious and well equipped,and very clean.The only downside is that towels aren't provided which we didn't realise,so we bought some.It's a 2min walk to the village,with a butcher[lovely sausages]baker a bit pricey[?1-60 for 1 bun]greengrocer,P O and garage.Our favourite pub/restaurant was the Biacksmiths Arms,the food was great.Sitting on the square on an evening at the local Manor Arms enjoying a pint or two was lovely and relaxing.The house s well positioned for getting about,we went to Ulveston,Coniston,Haverigg,Keswick,and Hawshead.We would definately recommend Gorse Bank.
