Stylishly converted former-coach house, offering an idyllic romantic retreat for two guests located in the beautiful surroundings of the Lake District National Park, just 1.5 miles from Coniston Water.

Energetic guests can also enjoy shared use of the owner’s on-site gym, before strolling to the local pub to refuel, 1.5 miles away.

The cottage is in a small hamlet in the grounds of the owner’s home and has a modern, fresh feel throughout. Several steps lead down to the entrance, where an internal staircase takes you up and into the living area on the first floor. This is a stylish space, which is flooded with light thanks to the large patio door which leads out onto your private decked balcony. Cosy up together in front of the wood burner and enjoy a film with a glass of wine. If you’ve decided to dine in, then you’ll find everything you need in the cottage-style kitchen to whip up a meal for two. The utility room is also a handy space for storing bikes and muddy boots. The inviting and restful bedroom is on this level, finished in muted colours and enjoying far-reaching countryside views, which are a joy to wake up to. In addition to the balcony, there’s also a private patio area where you can get the BBQ going and enjoy some al fresco dining. The internet is super-fast fibre broadband so great for connectivity.

What a superb week away from the city! The interior of the cottage is as described; the location is perfect for walking but spectacular views from the cottage itself make for a serene day in if you want to relax! The facilities (including gym & utility room) more than catered for our needs. The decor is modern and cosy. The welcome hamper in the kiRead moretchen was such a lovely touch and made sure we were well stocked for the week ahead. We can't rate this cottage and its lovely owners enough! 5* stay! Hide

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.
