Welcoming cottage sleeping four guests, located in a stunning elevated location overlooking the lakeside village of Coniston and offering panoramic views of Coniston Water.

Located in an elevated position above the lakeside village of Coniston, this beautiful property enjoys panoramic views of the lake and surrounding mountainous landscape. Sleeping four people, with a bunk bedroom accommodating two extra children, this welcoming home is also within walking distance of local pubs and shops. With many walks, climbs and water sports on the doorstep, there’s something to keep everyone entertained.

Neutral decor, comfortable furnishings and some traditional touches make this a welcoming home for your special break. The bright kitchen/diner is a sociable space for the family to gather to dine on meals and snacks, which the cooks of the family will enjoy rustling up on the traditional AGA. Retreat to the lounge after a busy day on your feet, where the open fire will keep everyone warm as you settle down to enjoy a film or board game. Stairs lead to the first floor, where you’ll find two inviting and restful bedrooms, while a second flight of stairs brings you to the double attic bedroom which is set in the eaves of the house. Patio doors in the lounge open out onto the split-level terraced garden, which is a lovely space for everyone to enjoy some al fresco dining and some drinks as the sun goes down.

Meander around the shops in Coniston village, which is within walking distance, before stopping off at one of its pubs or cafes. The Old Man of Coniston fell offers a range of walks to the summit, some hardier than others, depending on your mood. On the lakeside, there’s a boating centre where you can hire canoes, paddleboards or sailing boats. For a more leisurely day, enjoy a ride on a restored Victorian steamer.

We had a fantastic stay at The Rock cottage. The views were amazing and the cottage was a perfect size and space for our week away with 2 kids. The access road to the cottages is steep and narrow but you get used to it. Everything you need for a perfect holiday getaway can be found in the cottage. Highly recommended.

Great location and enjoyed great weather Cottage a little tight, particularly the beds but location was excellent despite the steep walk home each evening. You need to be fairly fit if walking into the village each day. Overall very good but not cheap for a weeks stay

Spent a week with my wife and another couple in this wonderful cottage with the most spectacular views of Coniston lake. Very well located to take advantage of all the local pubs and shops by foot, although you need to manage the steepish walk back up to the cottage! Also a good location for a number of local walks of varying degrees of difficult. Read moreThe cottage itself is spotlessly clean and very well appointed. Highly recommended. Hide

Cottage is lovely. Has an amazing view over the lake. Was a damp week while we were there so made use of the open fire in the cosy lounge. Were short of a couple of pillow cases and not all beds made up as although we were only 4 the kids did not want to share a room. Dont ignore the warnings about the drive is very steep and awkward but you get thRead moree hang of it. 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.
