About the property

Cottage in Grizebeck, near Broughton in Furness, South Lakes, England - Small village location, surrounded by fells.

Spring Gardens is a cosy 18th Century Lakeland farm workers cottage that has been recently refurbished to a high standard. It sleeps 4 in 2 bedrooms. Conveniently situated in the village of Grizebeck on the picturesque Duddon estuary, an ideal location for enjoying the many activities the lake district has to offer. The cottage retains many original features such as exposed beams, original pitch pine doors with Suffolk latches and wooden floorboards. Furnished with the comfiest of beds and the best Egyptian cotton bedding for a good nights sleep. Comfy sofas with cushions and snugly blankets, rugs and a log burning stove with a good supply of logs make this a perfect cottage for a family or a romantic break at any time of year. The beck runs at the bottom of the sunny garden where you will find a picnic table, flowers and a herb garden. The cottage is surrounded by fells with many footpaths and open access areas, with the Lakeland mountains as a backdrop the views are just stunning, this is an ideal walkers retreat.

For your comfort, Spring Gardens is a smoke and pet free cottage.

The location has poor mobile phone and wifi signal, for this reason we do not have wifi in the cottage.

About Heather Rhodes

We bought the cottage in August 2014 and have fully renovated and refurbished it to create this lovely holiday home. We live only a few miles away but still love to stay at the cottage ourselves, we hope you will enjoy it as much as we do. Now the cottage is finished we can spend our weekends walking in the fells or canoeing on Coniston Water again.

Why Heather Rhodes chose England

This is the real Cumbria, becks and rivers winding down to the estuary and out to the open sea, Fells with open access and views of the stunning mountains behind.

On the edge of the national park, it is away from the busy tourist hot spots of the Lake District, yet just a short drive from them. This makes it an ideal base to explore the Cumbrian coastline and the south lakes. The west coast of Cumbria has been described as the ‘un spoiled’ area of the lake district and there are many walks with beautiful views right from the cottage. This area has been a favourite of ours for many years.

there are several road cycle and off road cycle routes in the area, I haven't tried them out myself but after doing this bit of research, I am inspired to dust down the bike, oil the chain and have a go myself.

Lovely cottage in Grizebeck near to everything

  • 5 of 5

Very comfortable cottage. Comfortable beds and lovely bath. It took us a bit to organize the fire, but after one night we were very accomplished at getting it to roar and making the home toasty.

Lovely cosy cottage in Grizebeck!

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was lovely and cosy with all amenities. It was in a beautiful location with easy access to the rest of the Lake district. The owner left us some delicious flapjacks and a bottle of wine which was much appreciated! The pub across the road was also handy for meals and drinks - the locals were very friendly. I would recommend the cottage to friends and family.
