Be inspired by spectacular views of tumbling hills, sparkling waters and clusters of ancient woodland from the vantage point of a gently bubbling hot tub, sipping from a tall glass of something fizzing and delicious. Elevated above the dramatic landscape surrounding Coniston, this impressive stone property is a luxurious setting for 12 guests seeking an escape in rural splendour. Wake up to the sound of birdsong and don your boots ready to explore, enjoying over 4 acres of woodland gardens including a secret seating area and fire pit encircled by ethereal woodland.

Originally a 17th-century cottage, this impressive masterpiece has been carefully crafted into a sumptuous palace for entertaining. Enter via the sublime timber beam and stone-framed entrance to discover immaculate interiors styled with lavish furniture. Throw open the sliding doors in the lounge for an al fresco vibe on summer afternoons, and on winter evenings, snuggle up by the fire with your glass of wine. Dinner is an extravagant affair in the kitchen/diner, providing everything you need to prepare a feast. Your sleeping quarters are scattered between the two floors, each one uniquely designed and featuring crisp bedding and their own private en-suite. Outside is simply mesmerising thanks to the breathtaking backdrop and vast expanse of garden at your disposal, whether you are relaxing on the glass-fronted terrace, or crossing the footbridge into the secret rear garden to find the hot tub and outside shower.

Venture down to Coniston Water to hop onboard a Victorian Paddle Steamer, or perhaps try your hand at sailing the tranquil waters yourself. Satisfy your inner adrenaline enthusiasts with a challenging hike to the peak of the ‘Old Man of Coniston’, rewarding the troops with a delicious feast in a friendly pub, one of which also houses its own on-site brewery.

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

The house and views were stunning, better than the photo's conveyed. However the house was situated at the top of a hill, with incredibly tight winding roads to get to it. This was advised when the house information was sent prior to our holiday, but as a not very confident driver it was quite scary driving too and from the property. Our friends acRead moretually pranged their van on one occasion. We may have taken two cars instead of a transit van had we realised in advance just how tight access is. Hide

A stunning property. The views are are magnificent. The property has been built to a superb standard. Very well appointed, and the house design maximises the setting. It is in a steep location, but only a 10 minute walk to town, maybe a little longer to get back! Coniston is a lovely compact town, with all facilities available. We were a family groRead moreup of 10, 4 under 12 and all really enjoyed our time. As a bonus, it is on the way to the Old Man of Coniston, which has breathtaking views. Hide

Beautiful house in a wonderful location. The steep hillside is not for the less mobile but the view makes it totally worthwhile. The property is very well equipped, with lovely bedrooms and a great woodland to explore.

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.
