About Roger Smith

Built in 1465, The estate lies on the eastern edge of the Lyth Valley, about five miles from Lake Windermere, where the house, barns and cottages sit within 17 acres of mature woodland, open pasture and beautiful formal gardens.

As the name would imply, the specimen oaks are a magnificent feature of the estate’s landscape, where they form the backdrop to the immaculate formal gardens, along with the tarns and lily ponds.

The approach is by the long private drive, bordered with white railings where to either side lie the grounds, the woodlands and the tarns. As you reach the house the drive divides - one way to the two cottages, Honey Pot Cottage and Nanny Goat Cottage - the other sweeps around to the main courtyard and the rear of the house. The main grounds spread out from this courtyard. There are beautiful manicured lawns, terraces with seats, a lavender walk, small woodlands and tarns with fish, and ponds with lilies, all in all too much to describe, where I hope the photographs do justice.

Slip through the gap between the house and barn and you come into the inner courtyard and the front of the house. Bordered by trees and shrubs, there is an ancient vine on a small terrace set against the bank built barn, where in summer it is a perfect suntrap. A ramp winds around to the upper terrace, with garden furniture and a barbecue set under a timber verandah. The view is quite beautiful looking across orchards and meadows, coming to rest on a line of low fells.

The two cottages, which lie adjacent to the main house, each have their own defined grounds and parking, and we ask that guests of any of the properties respect each other’s privacy, although making new friends is always a pleasing option.

Whether you relax around the inner courtyard, or explore the wider grounds for a spot to picnic or read, there is somewhere for everybody to enjoy a special kind of peace.

Roger Smith purchased this chateau / country house in 1990

Why Roger Smith chose Kendal & South Lakes

Superb, Broad Oak has origins stretching far back in history, as early as the 16th century, where the inscription above the main dining hall entrance indicates a date of 1565. Over a long period, Lynette has restored the house, where most of the original features have been preserved, enhanced by her own skills to give a true period interior, with all of those additions required for modern easy living.

Beautiful cottage in a stunning location

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous long weekend. The house is wonderful and had everything we could have needed. All the bedrooms having an ensuite was a huge bonus, and the hot tub was very much welcome after a long day walking. We had a wonderful stay and would highly recommend!

Lovely Old Property in a beautiful location

  • 4 of 5

A lovely old farmhouse. Nicely appointed and furnished. The décor is traditional and old and a little spooky which was great. We were a family of 7 and for the first 2 days the kids would only go around in pairs. Cue much hiding and making each other jump and scary stories at night. The various reception rooms were great and meant that adults could relax way from the kids. Kitchen was well appointed with a huge fridge and although we did not need it I can imagine the house would be lovely and cozy with the fires going on colder months.The grounds were well kept and very nice to stroll around or for the kids to runaround. The location is great-it feels isolated but with a good pub and good food less than 1/2 mile away. Kendal only being a short drive for provisions and easy access to the main tourist attractions.

The rooms were all very well appointed, the beds really comfortable and the modern refitted bathrooms were luxurious. We really liked the fact that the water pressure was so good that it took no time at all to draw a bath for a long hot soak after a days walking.

There are 3 reasons that we did not award it 5 stars.

1 Whilst the welcome bottle of wine was a nice touch, as you cannot gain access to the property until quite late in the day a welcome pack of basics like a pint of milk/coffee/tea/bread would have been better.

2 Towels provided are very small and not suitable to dry adults after a bath/shower/hot tub.

3 The hot tub (which was one of the key drivers for our initial booking) was over chlorinated so it was like going to a municipal pool in the 70's.

Lovely peaceful stay at Broadoak!

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at at Broadoak for a week in late July - wonderful weather. The house was magnificent, there was plenty to do in the surrounding area for two adults, three children and a Golden Retriever. We especially enjoyed our meal at the nearby Wheatsheaf pub in Brigsteer.

We would definitely recommend!

Beautiful cottage in superb surroundings

  • 5 of 5

WOW what a lovely short break we have recently returned from, a four day stay in this beautiful cottage really brightened up a cold February. Leanne and Tony were very welcoming and the lovely gift of Prosecco and chocolates was a lovely touch for the Valentine weekend. Thank you :)

We had 6 adults, 4 children and our chocolate labrador and we all felt very at home here without being under each others feet.

The decor was amazing in every room an we all felt really special in this beautiful home.

I was a great base for exploring the area as well, and we couldn't wait to return to base to have a lovely relax in the hot tub (which was a favourite all weekend).

Beautiful clear sky's in the evening made it a real treat for late night hot tub relaxation.

Cant wait to return in the future.
