4 Low House Cottages

The cottage lies a short walk from the village centre on the Coniston - Torver road, the end terrace property of a group of four.

Well furnished, as recognised by the Visit England 4 Star award, the cottage offers guests comfortable accommodation, along with all the benefits of village amenities and a fantastic landscape to explore. From your door step you have one of a our most beautiful lakes, a rugged mountain range, plenty of activities on, in and around the water, along with pubs, cafes, shops and a micro brewery.

From the front entrance you step into a small hall and stairway, off which lies the sitting room with plump sofas drawn around a roaring open fire, perfect to relax after your days walking and exploring, where you can tuck up with a good book or simply sit back and watch a good movie on the wide screen TV.

The kitchen - dining room is well equipped for self catering, offering many mod-cons. From the kitchen a door opens onto steps that lead down to the shared parking area.

Upstairs are the three bedrooms along with the bathroom. There is the master double, a twin and a small single, perhaps best suited as a child’s room. The bathroom is simple but well appointed with bath, overhead shower, basin and WC.

With walks from the cottage along with lake activities and a good selection of local inns and cafes, 4 Low House Cottages will make the perfect Lakeland holiday home for couples or families.
 


The Location

Coniston village sits in the very heart of the Lake District at the northwest tip of Coniston Water, sheltered in the lea of the Coniston mountain range. Radiating from the stone bridge, spanning Church Beck, the four main streets are a bustling community with a fine church, shops, a post office, cafes, a local brewery and five good pubs.

This is a village with much to do, the location perfect for outdoor pursuits; climbing, walking, cycling and water sport holidays. On all points of the compass there are trails, leafy forest paths, tracks and lake shores to explore, and you need travel very little to find a new and exciting landscape.

Coniston Water is one the most people friendly lakes, with much of the shore and the whole lake open to the public. Famous as the backdrop and inspiration for Arthur Ransome's Swallows and Amazons and Sir Malcolm and Donald Campbell's world speed attempts, its wooded and grassy banks, along with the craggy coves and the deep clear water offer a habitat to a rich variety of flora and fauna. Here pike, trout, perch and ancient char thrive along with swans, heron, ducks, woodpeckers and owls to name a few and recently there has been a re-introduction of red kites. Red squirrels are abundant as are wild red deer and badger, and, perhaps best of all, is the return of otters to Coniston.

At the Boating Centre you can hire rowing boats, sailing dinghies, kayaks and canoes or my favourite, the small motorboats, perfect for a day out exploring the hidden bays and wooded coves. The Centre also hires mountain bikes and electric bikes to help get you around the lanes and up onto the fells.

Still at the Boating Centre, you can hop aboard one of the Coniston Launches with regular trips down the lake, stopping at various landing points including Brantwood, home of John Ruskin where, along with the Jumping Jenny restaurant, it makes for a good day out discovering the culture and work of the Pre Raphaelites and the Art and Crafts Movement.

For a romantic trip on the water you can board the famous Steam yacht ‘Gondola’. A beautiful rebuilt steam powered craft that will transport you back to an era of greater peace and tranquility. The yacht can be hired for large private parties, or maybe splash out for just the two of you as a grand gesture. Finally, the lake offers more simple pursuits: fishing, swimming or simply finding a nice spot for a picnic and enjoying a magnificent view.

For walking, climbing and mountain biking the choice is huge, with the whole of the mountain range to explore. The Old Man of Coniston stands at 2635 feet and is very popular, offering various well-marked paths to the summit. If you only go part way the view will be spectacular, the pint in the pub on your return all the more delicious.

From the village one of my favourite paths takes you deep into the old Coppermine’s Valley, with its beck and waterfalls. At the head of the valley you carry on to discover the hidden tarns set on the lower slopes of the mountain.

There are plenty of low level walks and cycle trails. On the east side of Coniston water lies the Grizedale Forest. A massive working woodland, it is crisscrossed with paths and tracks for walking and mountain biking. The Forest is big into arts, commissioning fabulous statues and installations throughout. It is well worth driving via Hawkshead, around to the visitor center for a forest map and information to get the best from your day out.

After all that exploring drink and sustenance will be in order. The village has five pubs and a number of cafes. The Black Bull on the bridge is the oldest and an old favourite, but to ring the changes you can try the Ship Inn, the Sun Hotel, the Crown and the Yewdale or maybe a dainty cocktail at Harrys Bar.
