This property is located just outside the village of Coniston which provides a range of amenities such as a choice of eateries and pubs, as well as several shops and a boating centre from where guests can participate in a range of watersports including canoeing, sailing, and stand-up paddle-boarding. For those who want to enjoy a more idyllic view of the lake, there are a number of leisurely boat trips available, not least the trips offered by the beautifully restored Victorian steamer. The village is also known for its rich history and the interesting Ruskin Museum takes visitors on a journey through the village’s past, telling the stories of three well-known local figures: polymath John Ruskin, author Arthur Ransome, and sportsman Donald Campbell.

The house is simply stunning and has been rebuilt around the original seventeenth century cottage, which now forms part of the entrance hall to the property and includes hand cut beams, with some of the main beams originating from local sailing ships of the time. The hallway also features exposed stonework. The magnificent light and airy lounge benefits from an open fire, Smart TV and an array of sumptuous leather seating. This is the perfect place to come together and relax or simply soak up the sensational, seasonal views. Sliding glass doors allow the room to open out onto the huge wrap around slate terrace from which you can marvel at the astonishing views across Coniston Water. The stylish kitchen & dining room offers a unique space for get-togethers and celebrations. The kitchen benefits from locally quarried slate work tops from the Old Man of Coniston itself, top of the range appliances including a huge gas Range double oven, a separate combination oven, microwave oven, two dishwashers, full size fridge & freezer and there’s a Smart TV on the wall should you ever tire of the mesmerizing views. The impressive dining table, seating up to 14, takes pride of place in front of the fabulous, fully retractable glass sliding doors. Opening fully onto the slate terrace with its exceptional views, this is the perfect setting for wow factor dining experiences and evenings spent watching the boats floating on the lake. Leading from the kitchen, is the utility room equipped with washing machine, dryer and extra freezer. There is a spacious galleried inner-hall, with separate WC, one large king-size bedroom on the ground floor opening out onto a private terrace area and a second downstairs twin bedroom with zip-and-link beds (which can be made into a king-size on request). There are two further bedrooms on the first floor, one which has a glass fronted balcony with wonderful views over the lake and gardens. In addition, there are two more guest bedrooms in the original part of the house; the master bedroom with a floor to ceiling glass fronted gable end, emperor size bed, TV, and en-suite marble bathroom with stand-alone bath and lake views, also benefiting from glass sliding doors opening out onto a private balcony with incredible views of both the lake and down the Coniston valley; and finally a dual aspect room overlooking the lake and garden with twin singles beds and luxurious en-suite marble shower room featuring impressive waterfall shower.

The house is set in four acres of enclosed, secluded, secure terraced woodland gardens with parking for 10 cars. In addition, there is a specially created seating area in the house’s own magical woods, featuring a natural wooden and stone seating area for 12-14 around a large fire pit. To the front of the house is a vast glass fronted slate terrace wrapping way around the property. Complete with garden furniture and wood burning brazier, this superb suntrap provides glorious lake vistas, which must be seen to be believed. A sleek, glazed footbridge leads out to the secret and magical rear garden and the outside shower and hot tub.

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

A beautiful house in a beautiful location. It was wonderful waking up to spectacular views, making the steep climb to the house well worth it. We enjoyed exploring the grounds, sitting round the fire pit (drinking wine), and relaxing in the hot tub. No expense has been spared in furnishing this wonderful holiday cottage and we definitely return.

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.
