Bank House.... a sumptious property in perfect decorative order, full of historic character and with award winning gardens, situated centrally within the village, and conservation area of Broughton in Furness. An excellent base from which to explore Coniston and the central lakes. It is quieter over the western side of Cumbria, and yet Windermere and Ambleside are very easily accessible.
Architecturally interesting, Bank House is a late 19th century residence of note. Built around 1880, this home was originally constructed for a bachelor bank manager. Bank House still comprises all of this original house, which did at one time envelop the whole of the bank.
Bank House is situated very conveniently in the heart of Broughton in Furness village. Handy for the local newsagents and post office, there's also a first class greengrocer with a vast array of produce and a good local bakery.
Right next door to the greengrocer is a renowned butcher, who not only sells top class meat, but boasts a very tempting array of fresh daily pies, home made cook in sauces, jams, pickles, biscuits and cakes.
So really, Broughton in Furness is a quintessentially old fashioned English village in the Lakes, but with just enough of all the modern touches to give perfect balance.
Fancy eating out? There are several pubs within easy walking distance - The Black Cock Inn, The Kings Head, The Manor (no food here but great beer and ales), The High Cross Inn, and Beswicks Restaurant.

Try one, or try them all!
