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.

On arrival we had a major problem with the lack of cleanliness of the house, which we as a family corrected! After that we were able to enjoy, Carr Cottage, which is a really beautiful, warm, comfortable and cosy cottage, with spectacular views, somewhere I would definitely want to revisit!

Lovely cottage in great location. The facilities were good just needs bit more attention to garden and for dog owners to not allow their dogs on sofas/ more in depth cleaning between rentals. Some great walks available from the cottage which include some nice cafes and pubs on route.

Excellent location for many of the attractions of the Lakes. Quiet and secluded, but less than 10 mins from very well stocked store. Lovely views from the front of house and master bedroom, we saw deer and a red squirrel in the garden.

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.
