We were so lucky to find this cottage! It was perfect for our family of 5 - great space, facilities and location. We took lots of walks from the front door and it was an easy walk to Coniston. On top of all that the hosts were helpful, responsive and kind! 5 stars!

I cant say enough about Bracken Barn and Heathwaite Farm. The location is idyllic, a stones throw from the old man and a brisk walk to lovely Coniston village and lake. Also excellent proximity to Windermere/Ambleside/Keswick The property is 5 star. Great equipped kitchen, comfy lounge area with the welcoming wood burning stove. The outside patio iRead mores great for alfresco meals. This fab cottage made our stay in the Lakes just perfect. Keighley and Matt were so lovely and helpful. Hide

Bracken Barn was absolutely fantastic. So comfortable and attention to detail was spot on. I could happily live there ! Beds comfy, bed linen soft and elegant. Views beautiful, carpets cosy, kitchen working well with everything you need. Lovely touches like coffee and plenty of loo roll. Cannot fault it. Matt & Keighley have thought of everything.

We have just returned from a two night stay here and couldnt recommend this place enough. The cottage was immaculate, everything had been thought of and the location was fantastic. If you enjoy a peaceful coffee outside in a morning with stunning views 2 minutes away , this place is definitely for 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.
