Stunning Georgian property in a unique setting by the shores of Coniston Water offering guests shorter and weekend breaks, where possible, tailor made with flexible arrival days and durations
In a unique setting by the shores of Coniston Water, this stunning Georgian property is perfect for larger groups of friends and family celebrating special occasions or holidaying together. Accommodating 12 people across six bedrooms, and with two dogs welcome too, this spacious home is in a superb location for walking, cycling and water sports. Sailing enthusiasts can even moor their own boats on the estate’s private jetty.
This beautiful home is impressive in both its grandeur and position, having previously welcomed famous guests including Beatrix Potter and the Victorian Poet Laureate, Tennyson. The elegant and expansive sitting room is a wonderful and social space for your guests to gather, with an open fire and plenty of seating for cosy evenings. Enjoy family dinners in the grand dining room, which also boasts an open fire, or for more informal snacks or meals, the breakfast table in the kitchen is a nice spot. This spacious and contemporary area is equipped with everything you’ll need, with a traditional oil-fired AGA at its heart. Heading upstairs, a restful night awaits, for guests retiring to the beautiful and stylish bedrooms. Four are on this level, accessed by two different staircases, while narrow stairs lead to a further two pretty rooms in the attic, both with sloping ceilings. Outside, the children and dogs will love exploring the surrounding sloping gardens, while you take a seat on the large terrace.
Pack a picnic and wander down to the estate’s shared lakeshore area, which is perfect for paddling. Try one of the water sports on offer or stay on dry land to follow one of the many woodland trails or cycle routes at Grizedale Forest (6 miles). Wander around the shops in Coniston village (1.5 miles) before stopping off at one of the local pubs.
