This is a lovely cottage inside and out set in a beautiful location. We had a fabulous week and amazing weather. The cottage had everything we needed although we thought the outdoor furniture was disappointing - no parasol and the table and chairs didnt match so not comfortable to eat at. However this was a small thing and overall would recommend.

Beautifully furnished cottage, well equipped, with plenty of parking and rural setting, 5 minutes walk from Monk Coniston, the head of the lake. In general a good standard but for the price would have expected better outdoor furniture and a more attractive garden. The shower over the bath was poor.

This is a lovely cottage, its set near lake coniston which is gorgeous. The cottage is well equipped and is really comfortable. However on the website it looks really remote- its not, there are several other properties next to it and behind it. The hot tub is amazing, especially after spending hours paddle boarding on the lake.

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.
