If your idea of the perfect Lake District holiday is to have magnificent lake views, walks from your doorstep up onto mountain paths, a village within walking distance, and plenty of activities, both on and around the water, then this may well be for you. Here, footpaths lead to the summit of the Old Man of Coniston, giving walkers a panoramic view of the Lake District. A meadow path leads down to the village where there are shops, cafes, and inns, and down by the lake you can hire rowing, sailing, and little powered boats. Here you will also find an array of shops, cafes, and pubs in which to browse, pause for a cream tea or settle down for a long lunch. Take your group out on the water from here too – you can either hire a boat to skipper yourselves or take a tour on an old steamer.

Stepping through the door you will instantly see the amazing transformation of this former barn to a cosy cottage. You will enter the open-plan lounge/kitchen, a welcoming and homely space with wood beams and a wood burner, surrounded by a corner sofa and the Smart TV. On the other side is the kitchen with all you need to create a wonderful meal. You have an electric oven and hob, microwave, fridge/freezer, washer/dryer, coffee machine and dishwasher. Also, there is a separate WC tucked away in the hall. Head on through to the dining room where you can enjoy an evening meal and discuss the day's adventures or even play some games. Head on down the stairs to the lower ground floor where you have the king-size bedroom and two bunk bedrooms. Finally, completing this property is the bathroom with bath, separate shower, and WC.

The garden has a patio area and enough room for your four-legged friends to stretch their legs, and seating to relax and enjoy the amazing views across the valley and to Coniston Water below. There is parking for two cars and a lockable bike storage area. Please note the property is accessed via a steep single-track lane.

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

We were so lucky to find this cottage! It was perfect for our family of 5 - great space, facilities and location. We took lots of walks from the front door and it was an easy walk to Coniston. On top of all that the hosts were helpful, responsive and kind! 5 stars!

I cant say enough about Bracken Barn and Heathwaite Farm. The location is idyllic, a stones throw from the old man and a brisk walk to lovely Coniston village and lake. Also excellent proximity to Windermere/Ambleside/Keswick The property is 5 star. Great equipped kitchen, comfy lounge area with the welcoming wood burning stove. The outside patio iRead mores great for alfresco meals. This fab cottage made our stay in the Lakes just perfect. Keighley and Matt were so lovely and helpful. Hide

Bracken Barn was absolutely fantastic. So comfortable and attention to detail was spot on. I could happily live there ! Beds comfy, bed linen soft and elegant. Views beautiful, carpets cosy, kitchen working well with everything you need. Lovely touches like coffee and plenty of loo roll. Cannot fault it. Matt & Keighley have thought of everything. Read moreThey were welcoming, & available but also discreet. 10 out of 10. Wish I stayed longer. Charlotte Davies Hide

We have just returned from a two night stay here and couldnt recommend this place enough. The cottage was immaculate, everything had been thought of and the location was fantastic. If you enjoy a peaceful coffee outside in a morning with stunning views 2 minutes away , this place is definitely for you.

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.
