Enjoy a peaceful escape in the Lake District with a loved one and four-legged friend in this beautifully modernised cottage just steps from Coniston Water.
Tucked away on a secluded private estate, this picturesque property is surrounded by peaceful grounds. The inspiration behind Arthur Ransome’s Swallows and Amazons, Coniston Water offers a range of pursuits from leisurely lakeside strolls to motorboating, paddleboarding and cruises on the Coniston Launch. Just 5 miles away, the village of Coniston is home to a Ruskin Museum and no less than four pubs, great for enjoying a hearty meal after a long day on the water. Meanwhile, more amenities can be found in the market town of Ulverston, 8.5 miles south, which is also home to the Laurel and Hardy Museum. Or, for more adventure, head for Grizedale Forest, 12 miles away, and its Tree Top Adventures, Segways and Go Ape high ropes course.
Inside, this modern apartment is open plan and inviting, with wooden flooring, cool neutral decor and industrial-style lighting, together with original shutters and panelling. Prepare romantic meals for two in the chic and contemporary kitchen area, which is equipped with an induction hob, fridge with ice compartment, combination oven, grill and microwave, washer/dryer, dishwasher and Nespresso machine. Dine at the beautifully lit table while admiring the ever-changing view towards Coniston Water through the French doors. With a wood burner, Freeview TV, DVD player and Bluetooth music system, the inviting lounge area offers plenty of entertainment for nights in. The elegant bedroom boasts a striking four-poster king-size bed and indulgent free-standing bath, and opens onto the patio. A stylish shower room completes the accommodation.
Step outside through the French doors onto the delightful private patio, which offers fell-top views and glimpses of Coniston Water. Meanwhile, to the front of the property are beautiful shared grounds, perfect for morning strolls with the dog. Unmarked parking bays are available outside the property.
