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.
