Rural barn conversion sleeping four guests, situated on the edge of Coniston Water, on the lower slopes of the Old Man of Coniston, and within walking distance of Coniston village centre.

This gorgeous barn conversion for four people is a fantastic rural retreat overlooking picturesque Coniston Water. It’s situated on the lower slopes of the Old Man of Coniston fell, and boasts miles of scenic walks and footpaths direct from the front door. It’s within walking distance of local pubs and shops, and one canine is also welcome, making it a true family break.

Located on the owner’s small farm, this delightful property offers comfortable and homely accommodation. The open-plan kitchen/lounge is on the first floor as you enter, with everything you and your guests will need to prepare snacks and meals. Exposed beams add extra character to this space, with the flame effect gas fire in the lounge throwing out some extra warmth as you all settle down to watch a film or play a board game on the comfortable sofas. Enjoy a leisurely breakfast or a family dinner in the separate dining room. Heading back downstairs and then down another flight to the lower ground floor, you’ll arrive in the two cosy bedrooms. Decorated in neutral tones, each has a restful and calming ambience, ensuring a great night’s sleep ahead. Enjoy your morning coffee in the small seating area to the front of the property.

Join one of the paths on the edge of the farm’s grounds, which go on for miles and will keep the dog and children entertained. Enjoy a boat ride on Coniston Water or try a range of water sports which are on offer at the nearby boating centre. For woodland walks and sculpture trails, Grizedale Forest (7.5 miles) makes for a great day out. Wander around the shops in the village of Coniston, less than half a mile away, and enjoy a bite to eat in one of its many pubs and restaurants.

Beautiful barn conversion. The photos do not do the place justice. It is lovely and spacious, very well decorated and extremely comfortable. We really enjoyed our stay and did not want to go home. The large kitchen is very well equipped and has a stunning view of the lake. The beds are very comfortable with high quality bedding and extra blankets pRead morerovided. The bathroom is lovely with a good shower. Just be warned, the drive up to the cottage is very steep and narrow but totally worth it Hide

Perfect location if you're visiting for a walking holiday as there are footpaths right on your doorstep. Views of Coniston Water out of one window and Old Man of Coniston from another, perfect!

Absolutely wonderful home from home. I especially loved eating my dinner with a great view of lake Coniston, and being able to walk straight out from the house onto footpaths. The cottage was cosy, and had everything we needed for the week (plus one of the nicest bathrooms ever!)

Great view from dining room window of Coniston Water. Accommodation very spacious

A lovely cottage. Perfect for what we needed for our stay with everything provided. It is not a walk into the village. We drove every time! But there is free parking on the road at the bottom of the hill and you can easily walk to all the amenities once there. We went to all pubs in the centre of the village. Black Bull is old style, perfect for a Read morepint of locally brewed ale. Food is lovely in the yewtree but our favourite was by far and away the Crown Inn. With parking too for that drive down!

A very comfortable and well-equipped cottage in a lovely, peaceful setting. Due to the location (set into a hill), walking up to the property from the village and walking in the fields around the cottage could be quite challenging for some guests; access to a car to get into the village was essential, especially for grocery shopping. However, we haRead mored a fantastic week and would happily stay there again. Hide

Beautiful location, bit of a climb to get there in the car but well worth it . Property was much better than the pictures showed. Would recommend it to anyone with pets or without

Me and my partner had a great stay here , stunning location . The cottage was very relaxing worth the money the bathroom was lovely aswell though the hot water ran out quickly.

Situation for us was ideal but you DO need a car to get down to car in evening and most definitely need a torch. The access to the property is VERY steep from the town centre. Views and away from it all feeling all brilliant, and lovely with the cows and sheep around you !!

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.
