Campbell Apartment

Set in the heart of the Lake District, the Townson Ground Estate lies near the north east shores of Coniston Water, offering easy access to the many areas of shoreline open to the public, along with excellent walks and a nearby village.

Campbell apartment is one of a group of six adjoining, individually owned houses and cottages. The village of Coniston lies about a mile and half around the lake, offering shops, cafes and a number of good pubs serving locally brewed ale and pub food.

Campbell Apartment adjoins Townson Ground House to one side ,and Ruskin to the other. From a small private courtyard garden you step through French doors into a contemporary sitting - dining room, with leather sofa and arm chair drawn around a log burning stove. To the rear a door opens to the galley kitchen, well equipped and perfect to self cater.

There are two ground floor bedrooms, one a double, the second a twin with a door opening onto the garden area. Both are furnished well, with restful creams and beige colours. Finally there is a bathroom with bath, overhead shower, and basin, WC and under floor heating.

Campbell is an excellent apartment for couples or a small family, offering the perfect base to explore all of Central Lakeland and the National Park.

 

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 favorite, 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 favorite 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 vast 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 centre 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 favorite, 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.

 

Guest Reviews

This is the most beautiful holiday accommodation we have ever stayed in (and we have  visited many places) Well Done !
 
This lovely cottage helped towards a perfect holiday weekend.Thank you.

Thank you for your email - all is in order I'm sure. We had a lovely break and thoroughly enjoyed the remoteness and comfort of The Campbell Apartment. Hadn't realised the world could be so silent at night.
Regards - Hilary Brown
