This super cottage lies in the grounds of Townson Ground, a group of some six privately owned holiday homes. Set in the heart of the Lake District, the properties are near the north east shores of Coniston Water, offering easy access to the many areas of shoreline open to the public, along with excellent walks.

The village of Coniston lies about a mile and half around the lake, a mostly flat walk, offering shops, cafes and a number of good pubs serving locally brewed ale.

For me this is a perfect cottage for two, ideal for honeymoons, romantic breaks and summer holidays. Built in a traditional style but with all mod cons, including a Jacuzzi garden spa tub, the cottage is contemporary in its decor and designed for easy living and comfort.

Living Spaces

You step into a good sized open plan living space. To one end is a fully fitted kitchen area with quality German units and polished granite stone surfaces, offering all you need to rustle up your favourite recipes.

The sitting room area sits under a pitched ceiling, with a roaring log burner to add that extra cosy atmosphere in winter months. French doors open to the main garden area where you can enjoy and drink, enjoy the view and relax and unwind in the Jacuzzi Spa tub. For added ease the owner provides extra towels and robes for your comfort and spa experience.

Bedrooms & Bathrooms

The bedroom is very comfortable with a king sized double bed and pretty furnishings. The bathroom is a good size with bath, overhead shower, basin and WC.

Garden Spaces

Surrounded by its own large garden there are views of Swirl Howe, one of the craggy peaks that form the Coniston Mountain Range. The Jacuzzi Spa Tub is perfect to relax and sooth tired muscles.

All in all this is a fabulous cottage set in a perfect location at the heart of the Lake District, perfect for exploring the National Park or simply relaxing in and around the cottage.

Out & About

Coniston Water, the village and the Old Man are three icons of the Lake District. Set in the very heart of the National Park this area has been a long time favourite for walkers and climbers, along with those that prefer a gentler, more relaxed holiday.

The village offers shops, inns and cafes and down at the boating centre you can hire boats to take out onto the water or take a trip on the lake cruisers or the ridiculously beautiful steam yacht Gondola.

The mountain is climbable by any reasonably fit person. Well-marked tracks lead to the summit and if you only go part way, the memorable, the pint after in the Black Bull even more tasty.

East of the lake is the huge Grizedale Forest. A centre for all things woodland, there are trails that take you on a nine mile route, where on the way you can spot the many sculptures created by resident and visiting artists. At the visitor centre bikes can be hired for mountain biking, and at Go-Ape, the tree top assault course, you can find your inner Tarzan.

Please note there is a refundable £150 security deposit for this property payable closer to the start of your holiday.

Lovely cottage in a fantastic location, hot tub was a god send after a days walking, heating system isn't the best as it is slow to react, and can end up too hot/cold. The log fire was a welcome addition.

Somewhere cottage met all our expectations and more. We had a wonderful week exploring the Lake District, sampling the local cuisine and chilling out in the hot tub which helped to ease any aches and pains !

Absolutely fantastic. If you want a tranquil, relaxing and private 'home from home', this is the place. We loved that it was away from the main town, but close enough to walk to. The garden, the BBQ, the Hot Tub all added to this already superb cottage. It's also lovely to have somewhere to park your car knowing that nobody is going to damage it asRead more it has a private drive way too. For a couple without dogs, this could be the best cottage in the Lake District! Hide

As per the above. I liked the fireplace and the kitchen facilities, the heating system (even if it did not work in the bathroom for one day), the indoor lights, the bathroom. Not too bad, overall. Nice, warm and quite place, with a kind of romantic touch for a couple.

We had a wonderful week in this property. The hot tub was a bonus after a day outdoors in the hills. Beautiful, peaceful location which was an easy 1.5mile walk into Coniston. Only a mile in the other direction was Brantwood where there is a nice restaurant, and the property is also within easy reach of the lake and boating activities.

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.
