A lovely cottage on a beautiful location! The landlords was very friendly and helpful. We had a perfect day. The cottage is well equipped. The entire family can sink away in the comfortable family couch, the lighting provides for both a good atmosphere and the possibility to read your book. Some nice hikes can be made from the property, amongst whiRead morech the climbing off the Old Man of Coniston, but also the Tarn Hows and, a little further away, Harter Fell from the Hardknot side are recommended!

Absolutely amazing cottage, we'll definitely be booking again. Perfectly situated up on the hill with picturesque views all around, we really couldn't have asked for anything more. Mathew was a perfect host and certainly made a good impression on our little whippet Pickle who was always excited to see him when we were out and about.

Lovely, comfortable accommodation in a great, secluded location with wonderful views and delicious fudge and biscuits on arrival! We walked out of the front door straight on to the footpath to the Copper mines valley and up on to Coniston Old Man. Would definitely stay again.

The Heathwaite Cottage and Bracken Barn was beautiful, very clean and comfortable! It was good value for money and the facilities were great.

Beautiful cottage in an idyllic setting. The location is stunning and the cottage itself was comfortable and welcoming. We had constant rain when we visited but we still managed lots of walks and to come home to the log burner was bliss! A very enjoyable relaxing few days.

Fantastic stay at Heathwaite farm. Bracken barn was clean, comfortable and well equipped. Great location that felt very private and remote, but easily accessible for Coniston village down the hill.

A great stay at Bracken Barn. The kitchen is really well kitted out and the lounge is a relaxing place to spend time. We were remote working from home and the internet was very good and reliable, which was great. The location is ideal for walking in the Coniston area with direct access on to the fells from the house. Would definitely recommend.

This is a lovely, well equipped cottage. It was a little more remote than I realised, not suitable for people with disabilities. The drive up to the cottage is a little challenging, but great once you get there. The owners were really helpful and pleasant. Amazing views. Loved it.

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.
