Stylish Lakeland cottage situated amongst spectacular scenery by the shores of Coniston Water. A special retreat for both relaxing and exploring the magnificent Lake District National Park.
Situated on a small country estate on the north-eastern shore of Coniston Water, this delightful stone cottage enjoys a wonderful location ideal for walking, biking and water sports. It sleeps up to four people and one dog, making it perfect for couples or small families looking for a relaxing break. Guests also benefit from access to the estate’s private lake shoreline and extensive shared grounds, while local pubs and shops are 1.5 miles away.
This charming property shares a courtyard with four other holiday homes and was once an 18th-century stable. It’s been sympathetically modernised and is contemporary yet homely. The open-plan living space has a stylish feel, with comfortable sofas centred around a cosy wood burner, which are perfect for curling up on. The sleek kitchen area has been designed to meet all your culinary needs, while the dining table can seat all your guests for sociable meals and snacks. Stairs lead from the kitchen to a charming double bedroom which takes in wonderful views of the lake, while the twin is equally welcoming at the end of the day. The bathroom is also to be found on this level. Relax outside in your small walled garden while you prepare for some al fresco dining as the kids and dog play.
Walk through the grounds and down to the estate’s lakeshore area, which is great for picnics and paddling. Jetties are available too, if you’re bringing your own boat. Coniston Water is ideal for water sports enthusiasts with equipment for hire at the nearby boating centre. For a family day out with sculpture trails, Segway riding and woodland walks, Grizedale Forest (6 miles) is a must. Head to Hawkshead (3 miles) for a wander around the shops and a visit to the Beatrix Potter Gallery.
