This charming cottage is a warm and welcoming base from which to explore this stunning pocket of the Lake District.

Enjoying spectacular valley views and nestled below the Old Man of Coniston fell, this pretty cottage is an ideal choice for families and friends. It’s a particularly good base for those who love to explore on foot, with some wonderful walks and lakeside strolls on the doorstep. Two well-behaved dogs are invited to join up to five guests here, where a relaxing rural break awaits.

This delightful property is full of characterful touches and traditional features, which add to its home-from-home feel. Hang up coats and wipe off muddy paws in the welcoming hall, before heading into the stylish kitchen. This is a fresh and bright space for cooking up a tasty snack or meal, which everyone can enjoy together around the dining table. Retreat to the charming lounge which has comfortable sofas to curl up on as the wood burner warms you up on chillier evenings. Head upstairs when it’s time to rest, where you’ll find three cosy bedrooms, each with its own relaxing style and colourful decor. The contemporary bathroom is also on this level. Enjoy a glass of something tasty in the pretty garden, which has a patio area and steps leading to a separate terrace, while the children and dogs explore to their hearts’ content.

Stroll into Coniston village, less than half a mile away, where there are shops, pubs and cafes. Water enthusiasts will love trying one of the sports on offer at Coniston Water’s boating centre nearby. For a quieter pace, take in the scenery from the water with a pleasure cruise. Walkers heading for the summit of the Old Man of Coniston (1 mile) will be rewarded with memorable views, with different routes to get there, that cater to varying fitness levels.

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

A very clean and cosy cottage. With walking distance to village.

Excellent cosy property well equipped , need to be fit to walk down to the village. Steep hill. Lovely garden to sit out very relaxing.

Reviewed by Sven 2nd August 2019

Lovely cottage, very well equipped and well suited for a family of 4 with a dog. It is a steep and scary drive up to the car park, but once there everything is perfectly set up. The garden is lovely, and we even had a meal outside once (weather permitting). Nice and well fitted-out kitchen, small but cosy living room, and a master and two smaller bRead moreed rooms upstairs. Only one toilet/bathroom but we managed well. Town centre is a short walk with a fish-and-chips shop on the way. Hide

A great view of Coniston and a nice big lounge, but access road very narrow and steep- difficult for a large jeep. Could not fit two cars in the parking space. Garden was not fully fenced so dog could escape and was very steeply stepped so not good for small children.

Reviewed by Andria 12th April 2019

This cottage is set at a very steep access road with a sudden sharp turn but is well worth the journey. The views are amazing and the cottage is an ideallic retreat at the end of a day exploring. It is a short walk from the lake and local shops. Everything you need is provided, even a very welcomed tray of tea, coffee and biscuits on arrival! The cRead moreottage is beautifully decorated with local pictures and ornaments adding to the cosy environment. Hide

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.
