This romantic property, benefitting from a peaceful location on the edge of the Lakeside village of Coniston, sleeps four guests – perfect for a couples’ retreat. The cottage boasts spectacular views out over the water, and there are a whole host of beautiful walks directly from the front door. The pretty village has many independent boutiques and eateries, showcasing an exceptional range of local goods and produce.

 

Creepers adorn the walls of this pretty stone cottage, which is located up a steep narrow hill. The period property is full of character, with elegant, exposed beams and fabulous original features. The spacious lounge/kitchen/diner is a wonderful social space. The large stone fireplace and open fire create a fabulously cosy atmosphere; it’s the perfect place to snuggle up in front of the Smart TV after an action-packed day of exploring. From here, one step leads down to the cottage-style kitchen, which is equipped with everything you need to rustle up a tasty meal. Outside, there’s an enclosed garden where you can fully unwind in the peaceful surroundings.

 

Coniston Water is one of the Lake District’s largest ribbon lakes, totalling 5 miles in length. A delightful lakeside trail hugs the water’s edge, and you can combine a gentle stroll with a ride on the luxurious Victorian steam yacht gondola, to get a different perspective of the lake. Beatrix Potter enthusiasts will be thrilled to learn that Hill Top, her famous writing retreat, is just 6.5 miles away. The 17th-century farmhouse has been preserved just how she left it and there’s also a beautiful cottage garden to wander around. For something more high-octane, head to Grizedale Forest (9.5 miles away). As well as numerous walking trails and bike tracks, you’ll also find high ropes and zip wires, thanks to Go Ape.

Such a beautiful and relaxing location, surrounded by wildlife with views from your front door. On arrival and to our surprise we found that meditation and reiki are also offered. We did a family guided meditation for 30 minutes which was really centring and relaxing. Also tried Reiki for the first time. I can't think of a better place to either trRead morey meditation for the first time or continue it. It was a wonderful stay with very friendly, relaxed but attentive owners. Hide

A very cosy, comfortable cottage. Perfect if peace and quiet are what you are after - fabulous walks from the doorstep. A relatively short walk down to the village, or a few minutes drive.

Beautiful location but you have to be fit to make it to the village and back up 2 very steep hills. Lovely cottage that Matt and his wife are going to make even better.

Gorgeous cottage. Atmosphere was cosy and welcoming. Views of the lake and mountain. We lit the fire one eve which was lovely. New owners were lovely. Only just taken over so I suspect they'll be checking reviews to make improvements where needed. Don't get me wrong. It wasn't dirty just needs a spring clean to freshen it up.

Good location overlooking lake Coniston however the 15 min walk is up a very steep hill. Car access is a pain by anything bigger than a fiat 500. Our Volvo estate car was a challenge to get in and out. Property in real need of maintenance, renovation and a good clean. Wi-fi hotspot is very weak so pretty useless down stairs. Overall the property waRead mores acceptable but we didnt feel good value for money given the other properties available in the Lake District. Hide

This was a lovely cottage in a wonderful, secluded location, with direct access up onto the Coniston Old Man footpaths. Although it was simply furnished, it was cosy, comfortable and clean and had everything we needed. The access road is narrow and steep, but this didnt present any difficulties, and we liked being away from the village.

We had a lovely week at heathwaite farm. Despite the cold weather we were kept warm and comfortable. Some of the equipment was a little basic for self catering for a week. Stairs were a little tricky for my elderly mother. But great location, lovely views, would recommend.

You can see the cottage has not had any investment lately, it needs a big deep clean as cobwebs everywhere, new bathroom suite, oven gloves to be supplied, internet needs to be better, beds need a new mattress, TV did not get a signal. The heating was excellent and location was brilliant.

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.
