Nestling between the villages of Coniston and Ambleside, this stunning cottage enjoys a fantastic setting overlooking the Great Langdale Valley and its spectacular mountain range.

Boasting spectacular mountain views, this impressive three-bedroom cottage is nestled between the villages of Coniston and Ambleside. Enjoying a tranquil and beautiful location, it can sleep up to six people along with two of their loving canines. With some spectacular walks on the doorstep and the local pub 1 mile away, this home is a fabulous base for exploring the beautiful Lake District.

With traditional features throughout, combined with contemporary decor and design, a warm welcome awaits at this inviting home. The fresh and stylish open-plan lounge/diner is both cosy and relaxing, with a sumptuous sofa to curl up on while the wood burner gently heats the room. Tasteful furnishings and exposed beams add to the character of this social space while, in the kitchen, even the busiest of cooks will find all they need to rustle up a delicious meal for everyone. Come rain or shine, the large conservatory is a nice spot to curl up with a book or simply sit and enjoy the stunning views. Three comfortable and restful bedrooms are to be found upstairs, where guests will wake up feeling recharged and ready for the day. Step out from the conservatory onto the raised decking area and enjoy some al fresco dining as the sun sets. The kids and dogs will enjoy exploring the extensive grounds which surround the property.

The property is in Skelwith Bridge, which is set around an attractive stone bridge spanning the River Brathay. The track along the river offers an enjoyable stroll which leads you to the fantastic Skelwith Force waterfall. Wander around the many shops in popular Ambleside (3 miles) before stopping off to eat in one of its many pubs and restaurants. From here, hop on a ferry at the terminal, which will take you out across Lake Windermere.

We really enjoyed our stay at Carr Crag Cottage, the location is phenomenal!! There are a few recommendations we have sent to the owners that would need to be fixed before we considered staying again but overall we enjoyed the house, its layout is family friendly and the kitchen is well kitted out. There are lots of walks from the house itself and Read morethe pub down the road is dog friendly with good food. Hide

The situation of the cottage is amazing. The cleanliness of the property was an issue.

We did have a lovely stay its a beautiful place and the views are stunning, although the property wasnt very clean unfortunately, the garden was lovely but I do think it needs to be clearer on the details that, although the garden is enclosed it is NOT dog secure, and that there is a footpath around the edge of the garden with a minimal fence. TherRead moree are several hazards for dogs running free in the garden, e.g. old tangled chicken wire etc around trees and a rusty gate sticking out of a hedge. Hide

A lovely cottage in a stunning location. Numerous walks straight from the door, both river and tarn walks. Well stocked kitchen. Very powerful showers, comfy beds, decent sized bath towels, all the important things that make your holiday perfect are done right. Ideal location for our family to meet up for a few days and perfect for our 2 whippets.

What an incredible find. We were unlucky with the weather but didnt even mind as the cottage made such a beautiful, cosy base for just sitting and looking out at the glorious mountains. You can really tell that it is a second home and not just an anonymous holiday rental. It is well furnished, light and comfortable and the kitchen was well equippedRead more. The location is simply outstanding with beautiful walks from the doorstep. Our 2 year old loved it but its best for slightly older children. Hide

The Lake District National Park is a superb choice for a holiday. If you love nature and the great outdoors, the Lake District is one of the UK’s most beautiful holiday destinations. Taking up the lion’s share of the north-western county of Cumbria, the region has been popular with visitors since Victorian times, and it’s the only place to find mountains in England. Peace and tranquillity characterise the wonderful Lake District, with 16 lakes, including England’s longest and deepest, there is much to see and do. Visit Coniston Water, Ullswater, Wast Water and Windermere for just a taste of what you can see in the Lake District National Park.

Small towns like Ambleside, Windermere, Hawkshead, Bowness-on-Windermere and Glenridding all make for great bases from which to relax and unwind between sojourns into the fantastic natural landscapes of the Lake District National Park. Wildlife and bird lovers can spot all kinds of lesser spotted species in situ, and walking trails reveal some of the very best vistas within English borders. To embellish the experience, you can enjoy some of the country’s cosiest pubs and restaurants, many found in picture-perfect locations.
