Overview

This large detached house offers the perfect venue for families and friends to gather for holidays, celebration and reunion. Set close to Coniston water, one of our most beautiful lakes, it is a perfect base for striking out on hikes and walks.

Torver has always been popular as a base for both high and low-level walking, with pathways to The Old Man for a big climb, tracks across Torver Common and paths that lead down to the lake where you can explore and swim in summer. The village offers two pubs, the Wilson Arms and Church House, a fine traditional inn, some 600 years old with flagged floors, low ceilings, roaring log fires, fine beers and excellent cuisine. Brigg House was built during the Victorian period and is an imposing large detached property set in private grounds.

The Living Spaces

From the main hall you enter into the sitting room with large bay windows, comfortable furnishings and an open fire to add warmth and atmosphere in winter.

The dining room, set with a fine table, leads into the conservatory. Off the dining room, is the galley kitchen with granite work surfaces and a range cooker.

Bedrooms & bathrooms

Upstairs are four bedrooms; three double and one a twin, all with en-suite shower rooms. There is also a further bathroom. The fifth bedroom is downstairs, off the sitting room, a double bed and bathroom with overhead shower.

Grounds & Gardens

Mature gardens and grounds surround the house with trees, shrubs and grassed areas, and with the added fun of a spa hot tub makes the perfect place to relax and play. In summation, Brigg House will offer guests a perfect venue for lazy holidays, family gatherings in splendid surrounds and an ideal base to explore Lakeland.

The Location

A few minutes' walk brings you to Torver with its two pubs, the best of which is Church House offing fine cuisine.

Coniston village lies two miles north, set in the very heart of the Lake District at the northwest tip of Coniston Water and 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.

Coniston Water is one the most people friendly lakes, with much of the shore and the whole lake open to the public. 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.

Dogs fees are charged per dog at £20.00 for up to 7 nights, £40.00 for up to 14 nights and an additional £20.00 for every week or part week thereafter.

Please note there is a refundable £250 security deposit for this property payable closer to the start of your holiday.

Thank you so much for a most memorable week at Brigg House. We are a very close family, and enjoy all being together for our holiday, each year at the lakes.

We all loved your beautiful cottage, the childreRead moren loved the freedom of the woodland and going into the hot tub after a full day of adventures, we loved the location and beautiful views. The children have renamed it as The Magic Cottage!!! Hopefully we will spend more memorable times there in the future, thanks again. Hide

We had a brilliant time at Brigg House. The 5 bedrooms, all en-suite, made our family gathering more comfortable and enjoyable. The house was very well equipped and the local pub had excellent food and a lovely atmosphere. we didn't have time to do much exploring, just a short wander back across the fields from the pub (wellies and a torch are needRead moreed for that expedition!) The hot tub and pool table entertained the adults and children. We did hide the cues just in case, but the wee ones spent hours rolling the balls into the pockets and waiting for them to emerge from underneath. All in all a really delightful long weekend, we will definitely be using your company again. Many thanks Hide

Had a terrific time. Great accommodation. Loved the Spa, Chess Board & Pool Table. I could even get up in the middle of the night without disturbing anyone.

Magical location, a rambler's paradise. Great asset to be able to walk from the doorstep.

Location

Note: As the postcode is used to identify the general area of the property, it may not always reflect its precise location, therefore please only use this map as a guide.

Adventure, memories and awe-inspiring natural beauty await you in the rugged, wild and unique Cumbrian Lake District where beautiful expanses of water merge with magical forests against a backdrop of dramatic mountains and fells.

This ancient land has been sculpted by time and nature and is the newest UNESCO World Heritage Site and the first UK National Park to be awarded this outstanding accolade. Poets, writers and artists throughout the ages have been instinctively drawn here; William Wordsworth, Beatrix Potter and John Ruskin, to name a few. The attractions and the diverse landscape will not fail to charm the young and the young at heart, whether that be thrill-seeking activities you seek, pure and cathartic inspiration or simply just some relaxation, you will find it here.

Cycling, walking, canoeing, white-water rafting, flying, parachuting and ballooning are just some of the offerings for any level of adrenalin junky. Experience the glory of nature in the wild or in a setting such as the Predator Experience where you can walk with wolves and learn about the importance of conservation. For a complete day of family, enjoy treetop capers at Go-Ape in the Grizedale Forest.

Vibrant towns and villages are there to be discovered, be it by land or water. You can step back in time and enjoy a steamboat cruise on a lake or leisurely unearth the dynamic scene of contemporary art, culture and some of the best dining in the UK by foot, bus or car.

The National Park is an area of breath-taking beauty that will leave you spoilt for choice, refuelled and inspired. So much so that you’ll want to come back time and time again.
