Owners' Comments

“I have lived in Broughton for just over 6 years and can honestly say it's the most friendly and welcoming village I have ever known. From the moment I moved in, neighbours introduced themselves, people stopped to say hello and I was invited to a welcome meeting where I met other new people and learnt about all the village has on offer. And it certainly does have a lot to offer, a shop, a doctor's surgery, café, pre-school, school, post office, 2 pubs, drama, art and, fitness groups, thriving sports and social club to name just a few of the village activities. My favourite part of living in Broughton has to be the variety and number of beautiful walks right from my doorstep and the enjoyment that watching deer, birds of prey and owls from my bedroom window. I will be very sad to leave the village and hope to return someday but for me it's time to move on. But I'm looking forward to one last New Year's Eve torch light parade to the village centre where people will gather to hear the bells ring in the New Year and sing Auld Lang syne. If village life is for you, then your find no better place than Broughton.”
