Absolutely stunning little cottage, ideal for a couple, lovely space and attractive views!! Gorgeous top floor bedroom with a great view of Coniston waters. Lovely seating room fire, with local garage at the bottom of the hill selling extra wood. Walking distance to the village centre with plenty of pubs and lovely food. Also great walks from the cRead moreottage to the copper mines, Old man Coniston and short drive to lake Windermere. All said, would highly recommend this place to stay. Hide

Pretty terrace, with seating . Stunning walks starting from and very close by. Five minute walk to two pubs who both serve food. Coniston village a ten miRead morenute walk. The family bathroom very small. The cottage is ideal for two couples. Hide

We loved our stay at Rock Cottage. We enjoyed evenings eating on the back patio. The view makes this cottage perfect. The second bathroom is tight, so it's best for children but did work for two adults on this holiday. We thought Coniston was a great home base for our travels throughout the Lake District.

Driving up to and parking at the cottage is extremely challenging. This may not be suitable for all! Beautiful location and stunning views. Ideal for those who want to park the car and go and explore the wonderful landscape. Wifi good and reliable.

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.
