Little Broughton is a traditional Cumbrian village, surrounded by lovely countryside with views of the fells across the valley through which flows the River Derwent. The village is well served with a local shop, bakers and two pubs - handy for popping out for a pint of milk or fresh baked loaf in the morning and of course for a pint in the evening! The attractive market town of Cockermouth is close by offering a variety of cafes, pubs and restaurants, tours around the Jennings brewery, Wordsworth House, plus a range of independent shops to browse.
This area provides good access to the quiet and beautiful northern and western fells, whilst the bustling lakeside town of Keswick is still only half an hour’s drive. Explore Ennerdale, Buttermere and Loweswater with an excellent range of walking options high level and low. The whole of the Solway Coast is yours to explore from the numerous bird reserves in the north to picturesque Allonby in the south or go a little further south to Whitehaven and the sandstone cliffs at St Bees. If you want to be in a cottage in a peaceful location away from, yet within reach of, the main tourist hotspots then give 1 Archway Cottages a try.
