Set back from the gently lapping shores of Coniston Water and elevated above the sweeping countryside, this former coach house is a romantic haven for couples. Return from your adventures to an al fresco supper of BBQ delights, lighting the candles and marvelling at the breathtaking skyline as it fades into night. The owners have even provided a welcome hamper brimming with goodies.

Follow the tree-lined drive and step down to reach the entrance, pausing to admire the spectacular views from your private patio. Once inside, a set of stairs lead to a gorgeous living space that’s a masterpiece of design, filled with natural light, lavish accessories and a delightful wood burner. Wake up to a delicious breakfast on the decked balcony, sipping your coffee against a backdrop of rolling hills. A cheerful kitchen provides enthusiastic cooks with everything you need to prepare a feast, or simply a place to chill the wine before heading out to eat – the Lake District is a fantastic destination for foodies! Weary and sated, treat yourself to some well-deserved pampering in the shower room before curling up for a restful night’s sleep in the elegant bedroom. There’s a BBQ in the garden for al fresco suppers, and you’ll have access to shared gym facilities on the ground floor should you wish to exert some energy.

Discover an array of adventures from your doorstep, taking to the water on a traditional paddle steamer, or scaling the heights of the quirkily named ‘Old Man of Coniston’. A honeypot for hikers and climbers, Coniston is a quintessential village with a popular pub, independent shops and eateries. Explore the Coniston Fells, trekking across the craggy wilderness and refuelling with a pit stop for a picnic and flask of hot chocolate with plenty of marshmallows.

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.
