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.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

Please note there is a refundable £100 security deposit for this property payable closer to the start of your holiday.

I rarely use 5stars as I usually think it has to be perfect for that. So to use 5 stars shows how much we thought of our cottage. Every bit of kitchen equipment you need. Clean and comfy downstairs and upstairs. We had dreadful weather but perfect to come back to log burner, comfy sofas and clothes dryer by the fire too!! Being able to walk to, swiRead morem in and play by the lake was great too. The owners were lovely. Very friendly and helpful. Perfect stay! 5 Stars indeed! Hide

This cottage can only be described as 5*. My husband and I have stayed in dog friendly cottages all over the UK but by far this was My favourite. We arrived in the dark which was disappointing but then waking up the next morning to the stunning views was a real treat! The kitchen was very thoughtfully stocked. The cottage clean and cozy with real aRead morettention to detail. The log burner was great for the evenings and the bed also very comfortable. The location is fantastic for exploring!! Hide

Excellent location, nice and quiet as long as the guests in the other cottages are not rowdy! Lake at the bottom of the field behind the property. The cottage had everything we needed including weighing scales and a garlic crusher. The owner came in and plunged the plugholes very soon after we reported slow drainage.

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.
