A lovely Lakeland stone cottage in a glorious location by the shores of Coniston Water. Grizedale is a wonderful holiday home for both relaxation and exploring the magnificent Lake District National Park.

Enjoying an idyllic location on the north-eastern shore of Coniston Water, this traditional stone cottage is a fantastic rural retreat for couples, small families or friends. It’s situated on a small country estate and guests benefit from direct access to a private lake shoreline. It’s a great choice for those looking for an adventurous holiday with plenty of exploring, as well as the opportunity to step back from the bustle of daily life.

This pretty two-bedroom property shares a courtyard with four other holiday homes. It is full of character and careful design touches which create a warm and welcoming home for up to five people. The lounge is a pleasant and restful space, where you can put your feet up and unwind with a film, in front of the warming wood burner. The kitchen/diner is a lovely social space for everyone to congregate and prepare good food together, with all the modern equipment you’ll need - whether you’re rustling up a snack or prepping a sit-down meal. On the first floor, you’ll discover two cosy bedrooms which are light and airy. The king-size room benefits from an additional bed, making it ideal for small families. Outside in the large shared garden, take in those magnificent views of the lake and mountains as you enjoy a drink at sunset.

Pack a picnic and wander down to the private lakeshore area where the kids can enjoy a paddle. Hop on a pleasure boat across Coniston Water to see the area from a different perspective, before heading for a bite to eat at the local pub, 1.5 miles away. Keen climbers looking for a challenge will enjoy the Old Man of Coniston fell (2.5 miles), while those looking for a gentler ramble will love Grizedale Forest’s woodland trails, 6 miles away.

We had a wonderful week in Grizedale cottage. Very well equipped and comfortable. Really enjoyed a real fire every evening. The view down by the lake is breathtaking, we managed to see a couple of sunsets down there. It was a great bonus to have direct access to the lake. Despite being attached to two other cottages we didnt hear a peep from our neRead moreighbours. Everything was so peaceful! Thoroughly recommend Steam Bistro in the village but book before you arrive or you wont get in. Hide

Grizedale is perfect, couldn't have asked for anything more. Perfect location and Richard very welcoming. Didn't want to leave and already planning our next stay which will hopefully be for 2 weeks next time.

If you're looking for lake frontage to bring your own dinghy / canoe to then this is the place for you. Well maintained cottages and outdoor space in a beautiful spot. Walking distance of Coniston village for provisions and pubs (just over one mile).

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.
