The Experience

Through stone pillars is a lovely Georgian house with stunning views to the sea. Vivid blue hydrangeas make a startling contrast to its white façade and smooth green lawns. Guests have gorgeous flowery bedrooms with high, comfortable beds and pretty furniture. There’s a little sitting room and Diana is an accomplished cook who treats you to home-produced vegetables and fruits. The garden is classic Cumbrian country house with stone balustrade, box garden, fragrant roses, venerable trees and lashings of rhododendron and azalea. With the spring come wave upon wave of snowdrops and merry daffodils. A walled garden, engagingly faded in its woodland setting, tells of gardeners and summers long ago. High stone walls, covered with climbers and old roses, enclose wide herbaceous beds and an old glasshouse. This is a garden in the most wonderful setting and which Diana constantly adds to for year-round interest; its bones are good and there are lots of paths to follow, places to sit and dream, and wildlife to watch. In winter there are ponies in the field, and birdlife, too, including flycatchers and green woodpeckers.

We had the most wonderful stay together with other family members, at Broadgate House to celebrate our 10th wedding anniversary. It was the most lovely setting for a formal black tie dinner, and Di cooked a superb meal. She really made the occasion very special, and made us all feel very welcome.

Many thanks for the most wonderful stay, a most beautifully preserved Georgian house with a fantastic view of the coast yet in reach of the Central Lakes. Dinner was excellent. We hope to visit again.

  • Stunning Stately homes to visit - Muncaster Castle which is 600 years old and still owed by the same family. Holker Hall the home of the Cavendish family. Levens with its world renowned Topiary, Brantwood House home of Ruskin and Beatrix Potter's house.
  • Walk from the house to the Swinside Stone Circle, it is older than Stonehenge and steeped in mystery. Climb Black Coombe for stunning views over Cumbria and the sea. For the more adventurous, Scafell, Coniston Old Man and the Langdales are nearby.
  • For sport lovers, there is riding on the Beach with the Cumbrian Heavy Horses, a nine hole golf course at Silecroft, sailing on Coniston and swimming in the sea. Horse Racing at Cartmel most Bank Holiday weekends and some evening meetings in the Summer.
  • Food lovers are well looked after be it Michelin starred restaurants such as L'Enculme at Cartmel with its Bistro Pub - Rogans. The local Pubs serve excellent and locally sourced food. One of the top 20 Bakeries in England is at Broughton in Furness.
  • Visit the charming market town of Ulverston - home to Laurel and Hardy, with its market on Thursdays. Little restaurants and boutique shops add to its' attraction.
