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.

Please note there is a refundable £500 security deposit for this property payable closer to the start of your holiday.

There are walking, cycling and rowing opportunities on your doorstep, but should you want to go further afield, the rest of the Lake District is within easy reach. Hawkshead (3 miles), a delightful, car-free village with a labyrinth of cobbled streets, and Near Sawrey, once home to Beatrix Potter at Hill Top (owned by the National Trust) are both worth a visit. For a picturesque breakfast/coffee/lunch, head to the riverside café and shop at Skelwith Bridge (6.5 miles). For those with younger members in the party, Grizedale Forest with trails, tree-top adventures and Segways is 6 miles away. Alternatively, step back in time at Wray Castle (6 miles) and enjoy the many activities available, including boat rides from the jetty. Ambleside, Grasmere and Bowness-on-Windermere are also nearby.

This is the third time that we have used Tent Lodge for family get togethers. We have also used other properties on the estate some six times. Richard and Wendy Nelson are such wonderful hosts and nothing is too much trouble.

Private access to the lake is a bonus, and it's a pleasant, easy 20 min or so walk down to the lakeside in Coniston itself.

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.
