During your stay at Broughton House, we want you to feel completely at home. Relax downstairs, by the fire, and read a book, or borrow a map and a guidebook, and make plans to explore the local lanes and fells. In the summer, make the most of the garden - there are plenty of corners to sit and enjoy the peace and quiet, with a glass of something cold, or a pot of tea and some home-made biscuits. If you are celebrating a wedding anniversary, or a birthday, we can make you a cake, and if you would like a bottle of champagne in your room, or flowers, or chocolates, then we will be delighted to put these in place for your arrival. Our aim is simply for you to feel at home, and have a lovely, relaxing time.
There are two bedrooms at Broughton House: East, and South. Both have small fridges stocked with fresh milk, and chilled water. On your welcome tray, in your room, you will find home-made brownies, and home-baked shortbread, and – on the landing – is the famous Tea Cupboard, from which you can help yourself to around thirty varieties of Teapigs tea, freshly ground Colombian coffee, and even a selection of “things you might have forgotten to bring with you.”
The bathrooms are stocked with luxurious Molton Brown toiletries, White Company towels, and bathrobes.
Situated in a separate wing of the house, East is an en-suite, private, and very comfortable bedroom. The shower room is on a mezzanine floor, above the bedroom. The super-king-sized bed, can convert into twin beds if required. Equipped with a fridge, tea and coffee making facilities, a DAB radio, a television, and furnished with a mixture of contemporary and antique furniture, East has beautiful views over the surrounding countryside, and is the perfect place to relax and recharge your batteries.
South is a more traditional room, situated in the older part of the house. A super-comfortable (according to many well-rested guests) king-sized bed, ensures a good night’s sleep. The traditional en-suite shower room is just off the bedroom. You will find everything necessary for a comfortable stay: a fridge, tea and coffee making facilities, a television, and a DAB radio. The room faces south, and looks out over the garden, with views to Hampsfell. Tucked up in South, nothing should disturb your sleep except the owls.
