About the property

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. For such an intimate village, we are blessed to be serviced with such a range of good food choices. A little further afield (but not far) lies The Prince of Wales and The Blacksmiths Arms. Try one, or try them all!

Bank House is situated on Station Road in Broughton in Furness village. Bank House boasts award winning gardens. You really do get the complete package - a beautiful house, complimented by so much greenery, private gardens which provide an absolute oasis of calm and tranquility with all the convenience of a central village location.

Bank House is a great base from which to plan a cycling or walking holiday or special weekend with options right from the door. Scenic cycleways/walkways now exist in both directions along the disused Coniston railway track. You can cycle over to Coniston via Woodland. There are links from The High Cross to the Cumbria Coastal Way... possibilities are many, from well worn popular cycling and walking routes, to quieter, less well trodden paths.

Bank House has a large internal basement area for secure storage of biking and walking gear.

Bank House - come and sample the best of country living in the heart of the village.

Fantastic property in a charming village.

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful, well-equipped, character period property. We had a wonderful weekend stay. The place was perfectly prepared and more than big enough for our large party. Two lounges and a dining kitchen - all three rooms had TVs. The aga in the kitchen was a nice touch, perfect for keeping the pastries warm, which came from the bakery just two mins walk away. Three double beds and one twin room. Master bedroom has a fantastic en-suite. The family bathroom has a great power shower.

The village has a deli, post office, bakery and a couple of pubs and restaurants. We ate in The Black Cock Inn, where the food was fantastic (you'll need to book).

We loved it and can't wait to return.

I would highly recommend the Bank House and would stay again in a heartbeat!

  • 5 of 5

There were 3 adults, a teenager and 3 kids in our party and everyone had a brilliant time at the Bank House. The kids especially enjoyed exploring the cellar and the garden. The house was more than big enough for our party and was very well furnished. Many thanks for letting us stay and would definitively love to come back in the future.

Fantastic house in a great location

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay in this fantastic house. The house was well presented and spotless throughout.

The location is perfect in the quaint village with 4 really nice pubs all within a short walk. The main attractions of the Lake District are within easy reach with Coniston and Windermere particularly close.

Will definitively return!

Perfect weekend away

  • 5 of 5

I was highly impressed with the property itself as well as with pre-arrival communications, the village of Broughton and surrounding area.

The house was bigger than I gathered from the photos, with all the comforts and amenities, spotlessly clean and tastefully decorated, with many original features preserved. The garden was beautiful, peaceful and tranquil. The property felt very private, garden was well covered from the road or other houses. Within a couple of minutes walk, there are three pubs, a lovely bakery, butchers / deli and a café. There are walking and running routes that can be done directly from the house.

My friends and I had an absolutely perfect weekend and would definitely recommend this location.
