Nestled amongst sweeping countryside just 1 mile from the quintessential village of Coniston, this traditional cottage is an idyllic base for outdoor enthusiasts. Brimming with character and sleeping four guests across two pretty bedrooms, the property is bursting with home comforts such as exposed beams and a welcoming open fire. Discover your surroundings on foot, by bike, or even by boat – taking to the tranquil waters to enjoy a gentle cruise on Coniston Water.

Step back in time from the moment you descend the stone stairs and head inside, noting the beamed ceiling and flagstone floors. The open-plan living space is kept toasty thanks to the open fire, and it has everything you need to unwind in style. Pop on a film, grab the snacks and settle down for a cosy film evening, rounding off with a sumptuous supper around the table. Prepare family feasts in the cheerful kitchen area; in the summer, the garden is a great spot for al fresco dining with a view. Upstairs, the main bathroom has a gorgeous corner bath perfect for long soaks, and you’ll have a choice of two bedrooms – a comfortable first-floor king-size, and a quirky second-floor twin in the eaves of the house. There is parking for one car, but additional space is available nearby, subject to availability.

Satisfy your inner explorer and set off to investigate the scenic trails leading from your doorstep, perhaps venturing to the summit of the ‘Old Man of Coniston’, or staying firmly at sea level with a stroll around the lake. You may recognise Coniston Water for being the site of the ill-fated ‘Bluebird’, but it is also known for its popular village. The village features pretty shops, tearooms and even a fantastic pub/brewery, which attracts beer enthusiasts from all over the UK.

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

The cottage is in a lovely situation, great for both walks on the fells and less than a mile along a disused railway to Coniston. The accommodation is comfortable and importantly after long walks both the bath and shower are good. It is just worth noting that the stairs to the first floor are very steep but not really a problem if you have gone to Read morewalk up mountains! We will be back again! Hide

Beautiful cottage in a great location. Only two small downsides were the enclosed garden was not secure with delivery people using it as a cut through to deliver parcels to the cottage next door. This meant that we could not leave the front door open in fear that our dog would escape. The other was the hedge in the garden was so high it blocked outRead more all of the stunning views that the cottage had to offer. The cottage is well kept, clean and recommended. Hide

Lovely little cottage within decent walking distance of Coniston to allow you to have a pub meal and walk home safely (as long as you have a good torch). Good walks straight from the cottage including the Old Man itself. Cosy for 2, but might be a little tight on the sofas if there were 4 of you - but probably not so much of a problem in the summerRead more when you can use the garden. Fantastic dark skies too be viewed on clear nights from that garden. Hide

Pleasant cottage to stay in, nice and comfortable. A really good location close to Coniston but quiet. Easy to walk to Coniston and Torver along the old railway track. Good walking for all levels from the door. We had a very enjoyable stay, a really nice week.

We loved our stay and spent the week walking all over the local area and cycling in Grizedale forest - what an amazing place overall! Our kids enjoyed swimming in the lake and we hired a canoe too. Great location to explore and lovely to be able to have shops close by for the essentials and pubs you can drive or walk to.

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.
