Experience the dramatic scenery of the spectacular Lake District National Park from the comfort of your doorstep, waking up to appreciate the breathtaking views snuggled under a blanket and sipping your first coffee of the day. Overlooking the fells, the cottage features roaring fires and cosy resting spots, providing the perfect base for four guests. Coniston village has plenty to amuse guests of all interests, whether you are an aspiring foodie, a keen adventurer or someone who is rather partial to a drop of local ale.

Leave your shoes to dry by the welcoming AGA in the kitchen/diner and settle down to giant slabs of homemade cake, refuelling after a bracing walk. The open fire beckons in the lounge, where you can curl up with a good book or watch a film. Throw open the patio doors for an al fresco vibe, and step out to enjoy the split-level garden with summer drinks and a BBQ. At bedtime, you’ll have a choice of three elegant bedrooms, each one delightfully comfortable and thoughtfully accessorised. There’s a charming double room tucked within the eaves of the house, a quirky first-floor bunkroom for children, and an impressive double with an en-suite shower room. Completing the property is a family bathroom with a shower over the bath. There’s parking for two cars, but do take care as the road leading to the property is very steep!

Set against a backdrop of towering mountains and windswept countryside, Coniston village is a honeypot for visitors. Boasting a thriving pub/brewery, pretty shops and eateries, the village is an excellent place to spend the afternoon. Coniston Water offers pleasure cruises on Victorian paddle steamers, and there are myriad scenic trails throughout the local area. If you are feeling energetic, the iconic ‘Old Man of Coniston’ is a popular destination for walking.

We had a fantastic stay at The Rock cottage. The views were amazing and the cottage was a perfect size and space for our week away with 2 kids. The access road to the cottages is steep and narrow but you get used to it. Everything you need for a perfect holiday getaway can be found in the cottage. Highly recommended.

Great location and enjoyed great weather Cottage a little tight, particularly the beds but location was excellent despite the steep walk home each evening. You need to be fairly fit if walking into the village each day. Overall very good but not cheap for a weeks stay

Spent a week with my wife and another couple in this wonderful cottage with the most spectacular views of Coniston lake. Very well located to take advantage of all the local pubs and shops by foot, although you need to manage the steepish walk back up to the cottage! Also a good location for a number of local walks of varying degrees of difficult. Read moreThe cottage itself is spotlessly clean and very well appointed. Highly recommended. Hide

Cottage is lovely. Has an amazing view over the lake. Was a damp week while we were there so made use of the open fire in the cosy lounge. Were short of a couple of pillow cases and not all beds made up as although we were only 4 the kids did not want to share a room. Dont ignore the warnings about the drive is very steep and awkward but you get thRead moree hang of it. Hide

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.
