Situated in the heart of the Lake District National Park, perched high above Coniston and commanding magnificent views over Coniston Water & the fells beyond, Fairsnape is an exceptional Lakeland home offering the ultimate in both luxury and privacy.

Fantastically located for days by Coniston Water, this exquisite, luxurious home offers a superb escape from the everyday. Impeccable design and decor create sublime spaces in which to enjoy moments of peace and quiet, and the fabulous outdoor areas welcome lively evenings. Sleeping 12 across six bedrooms, this bolthole welcomes a four-legged friend too, inviting you to spend quality time with friends and family and to embark on picturesque adventures.

Built around a 17th-century cottage, traditional features are beautifully complemented by contemporary design and the brilliant, wraparound slate terrace which encompasses the home. Step up and inside and sink into zesty sofas in the lounge where floor-to-ceiling windows and sliding doors offer far-reaching views. The open fire is the perfect welcome home after days outside, as is the bubbling hot. Slate from The Old Man of Coniston lines the kitchen worktops, adding bags of character to this fabulous space where you can cook up a storm and dine with mesmerising views through the glass, sliding doors. Between them, the bedrooms boast a private terrace, balconies, en-suites and spectacular views, and sit over the ground and first floors and the original cottage. Outside, get some fresh air in the 4 acres of woodland and garden where you can gather around the fire pit, sit on the terrace or walk the footbridge to the rear garden in search of the hot tub and outside shower. There is off-road parking for ten cars.

Sitting less than half a mile from the local village of Coniston, enjoy your secluded location whilst having all the amenities you need close by. Not only can you enjoy a night off from the kitchen and enjoy dining out, but you can visit the boating centre and make a splash sailing, canoeing or paddleboarding to name a few activities. The quaint village of Hawkshead makes for a lovely day out and is just 4.5 miles away. Head here for tales of Beatrix Potter and a handful of National Trust attractions.

Beautiful house in a wonderful location. The steep hillside is not for the less mobile but the view makes it totally worthwhile. The property is very well equipped, with lovely bedrooms and a great woodland to explore.

A beautiful house in a beautiful location. It was wonderful waking up to spectacular views, making the steep climb to the house well worth it. We enjoyed exploring the grounds, sitting round the fire pit (drinking wine), and relaxing in the hot tub. No expense has been spared in furnishing this wonderful holiday cottage and we definitely return.

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.
