Property code: LCC59

This period property is both charming and stylish, making it the perfect venue for a romantic getaway for two.

A warm welcome awaits you in this gorgeous character cottage for two, which is situated on the private Atkinson Ground Estate, close to Coniston Water. Keen walkers will particularly love this area as there are some spectacular mountain and lakeside walks on the doorstep. One dog is welcome too, so they don’t need to miss out on any of the fun.

Oozing old-world charm, this delightful home combines original features with some tasteful contemporary updates. An oak front door opens into an open-plan kitchen/diner, with traditional exposed beams. Rustle up a romantic meal in here, before pouring yourselves a glass of wine and taking a seat at the dining table. Stairs lead up to a warm and welcoming lounge, with a cosy wood burner throwing out some heat on chillier evenings, as you snuggle up to watch a film. When it’s time to rest, retreat to the stylish bedroom, which is reached via a further set of stairs. Tastefully decorated in neutral tones, it features a slanted ceiling and decorative fireplace, while the bathroom is located next door and boasts a fabulous whirlpool bath for soothing tired muscles after a day of hiking. Fire up the BBQ in the small patio area to the front of the cottage, which is a peaceful spot to unwind.

Get a bite to eat at the local pub, 1.5 miles away. Explore the shores of Coniston Water on foot or hop on one of the many boat trips that operate. Varying fitness levels are catered for at the Old Man of Coniston (3 miles), which has different routes you can follow to the summit. For a more sedate pace, pop into Hawkshead (2.5 miles) and wander around its cobbled streets and shops. The Beatrix Potter Gallery is also popular with visitors.

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

The cottage was very warm and cosy which was perfect when returning from our walks on the fells. The kitchen was very well equipped and had everything we needed. The nearest pub was around 1 mile away and Coniston was slightly further which was sufficiently remote without feeling isolated.

This property is in a lovely location and is cosy for 2. Great walks directly from the door - easy hikes to beautiful Tarn Hows or more challenging Coniston Old Man.

The Dairy is a beautiful cottage to stay at. It is in a great location not far from Coniston Lake and other locations. The cottage itself is all done out to a high spec and was extremely welcoming and well presented. We were sad to leave! When we return to the Lake District we would love to return to The Dairy as it met all our expectations.

We had a fantastic holiday. The cottage was warm, comfortable and well equipped. Its location meant that access to the lake was only a 15 minute walk.

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.
