This pretty cottage, on a small country estate with its own shoreline, is the perfect Lakeland retreat. Amble around the extensive shared grounds, enjoy a paddle and picnic on the shores of Coniston Water or hire a boat from the boating centre, on the opposite shore, and glide majestically from jetty to jetty, stopping off for a gentle stroll along the beautiful path that hugs the water’s edge.

The traditional stone property benefits from exceptional views over the water and towards the mountain ranges beyond. The homely accommodation is warm and inviting, thanks to thoughtful touches and stylish decor. After a day out on the water, come home to the cosy cottage and snuggle up in front of the roaring wood burner. To the front of the property is a large, shared garden, with fantastic views. On a warm summer’s evening, pour yourself a glass of wine and bask in the tranquillity or enjoy a spot of al fresco dining under the stars. If you’d like to bring your own sailing boat, there are jetties available along the private stretch of shoreline.

As well as the spectacular lake, Coniston village (2 miles away) is also well worth exploring. Full of independent cafes, shops and bistros, it’s the perfect place to get an authentic feel for the area and sample some of the delicious local produce. You may also like to visit The Ruskin Museum, where you can learn about Donald Campbell’s ill-fated speed record attempt on the lake and the village’s fascinating industrial past. This is Beatrix Potter country, and fans will be pleased to learn that her 17th-century farmhouse, Hill Top, is just 5 miles away. The National Trust property has been preserved just as Beatrix left it and the cottage gardens are a true delight to explore.

We had a fantastic stay at Grizedale Cottage. The cottage was immaculately clean upon arrival, and the kitchen extremely well equipped. We enjoyed sitting at the private outdoor table and taking in the beautiful views. We felt very safe and comfortable throughout the holiday, and thoroughly enjoyed talking to Richard and other members of his familyRead more. Great hosts..definitely going to return! Hide

We had a fabulous weeks stay at Grizedale. The location and views across the lake and to the Old Man are amazing and are part of the whole relaxing atmosphere. Nothing was too much trouble for our hosts which again helped make the holiday. Will definitely be looking at booking a revisit Janine & John

Have been coming to stay at this place for several years now, and still cannot fault anything. The cottages are beautiful, and well equipped. The owners Wendy & Richard are brilliant. Very welcoming and always on hand to help. Access to the lake is moments away and there are brilliant views from the cottage. Thank you for another great stay.

Second time we have stayed at Grizedale, great holiday as before. Extra Covid-19 precautions/cleaning was evident so felt very "safe". Cottage is very well equipped and access/location excellent. Would definitely recommend.

It was spotlessly clean and the location was perfect. The cottage was beautiful inside and out, we made full use of the lakeside access and the owners were very helpful.

We have stayed in Grizedale cottage on the Tent Lodge Estates many times over the past 15 years plus. We choose to stay here because of the beautiful lakeshore and the opportunity it provides to launch our boat and keep our kayaks by the lake ready for daily use.

We always bring an additional clothes airer to dry clothes in the kitchen, wet from lake or rain! Hide

We had a wonderful week in Grizedale cottage. Very well equipped and comfortable. Really enjoyed a real fire every evening. The view down by the lake is breathtaking, we managed to see a couple of sunsets down there. It was a great bonus to have direct access to the lake.

Thoroughly recommend Steam Bistro in the village but book before you arrive or you wont get in. Hide

Location

Map
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.
