Cosy period cottage offering comfortable accommodation for four guests, situated on the owner’s farm enjoying views to Lake Coniston, which lies just 0.5 miles from the property’s front door.
The perfect choice for a romantic break or family holiday, this charming period cottage enjoys a tranquil location with views over Lake Coniston. It’s on the lower slopes of the Old Man of Coniston fell, making it perfect for those looking to hike with their four-legged family member. With the lake just half a mile away and local pubs and shops within walking distance, you don’t need to stray far from your doorstep.
Situated on the owner’s farm alongside two other holiday properties, this attractive two-bedroom home has many original features, which add to its cosiness and character. The open-plan living space is welcoming and homely, with a large stone fireplace and dark wooden beams. The bright, cottage-style kitchen is perfect for rustling up a tasty snack or meal, if you fancy dining in for the evening. After a busy day of exploring, curl up on the comfortable sofas in the snuggly lounge area and watch the open fire crackle away. The shower room is also on this level, while upstairs you’ll find the two peaceful bedrooms, which are tastefully understated to provide a restful space. Take in the peaceful atmosphere outside in the seating area to the front of the cottage, before enjoying some eggs for breakfast, courtesy of the resident hens.
Try paddleboarding or canoeing on Coniston Water by hiring equipment at the nearby boating centre. Those looking for a challenging day will love the climb to the summit of the Old Man of Coniston (1 mile) while a more leisurely pace is promised on one of the footpaths which surround the property.
