High up in the fells above the lakeside village of Coniston, this beautiful cottage is the ideal hideaway for families or couples. The Old Man, looking down on Coniston Water, is just 2.5 miles away and is suitable for walkers of all abilities, so everyone can experience its far-reaching views. This cosy cottage sleeps four adults and two children and makes a fantastic escape for those looking for a fun-filled, exciting holiday in this picturesque part of the Lake District. Head to the boating centre just 1 mile away and hire paddleboards or kayaks for the day to experience Coniston Water up close.

As you step inside, you’re welcomed by a charming contemporary farmhouse-style kitchen/diner that is perfect for family meals, but the true heart of this home is the lounge. Calming cream and white tones and comfortable sofas beckon you to snuggle up in front of the wood burner in the evening, but during the day throw the patio doors open and flood the room with light. Sip your morning coffee on the terrace looking out towards fabulous unspoilt views. Head down the steps to another terrace and sizzle up a BBQ on warm evenings before heading to bed in one of the peaceful bedrooms, one of which is located in the eaves of the house with some reduced head height.

Take family strolls on one of the many trails in Grizedale Forest (7 miles) where children will be in their element with special walks tailored for little legs. If you’re without the kids, the cobbled streets of Cartmel (20 miles) are not to be missed; visit one of the two renowned restaurants before walking hand-in-hand along Grange-over-Sands promenade (22.5 miles) with views over Morecambe Bay. Framed by the Lakeland Hills, Holker Hall and Gardens (18 miles) is home to fallow deer and a curious labyrinth that everyone will enjoy exploring.

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

Absolutely stunning views! That is the best thing about staying in this cottage. It is also comfortable and well equipped. The village is lovely with plenty of places to eat and drink.

We enjoyed a truly wonderful break in Sun Cottage. The views from the property are stunning due to its elevated position - this does mean you have to experience the steep drive up from the village.

The view from the living room over Coniston is amazing, however the drive up to the cottage is not for the faint hearted and if you order a grocery delivery for your stay meet them at the bottom of the hill!

We had absolutely no complaints about the cottage. There were three adults in our party. We had plenty of room and the furniture and beds were very comfortable. We do not watch tv while on holiday so I cannot pass comment on that. The view is idyllic and it is very peaceful.

The situation of the cottage is perfect for people who enjoy walking on the fells. Hide

Cosy terraced cottage right at the top of the village of Coniston with fantastic views out to the lake and hills. Walk is VERY steep so wouldn't be appropriate for anyone with mobility issues but fine for fit and healthy walkers. Parking area is not suitable for anything other than 4x4s really and so you may end up parking right at the bottom of thRead moree hill. Hide

Beautiful cottage with stunning views from the lounge and bedrooms over Coniston and plenty of outside seating on either the balcony or garden terraces. Perfect for 4 people comfortably with good facilities and a short ( if steep ) walk into town. Not suitable for those with restricted mobility as there are steep stairs.

Beautifully appointed compact, cosy cottage, ideally situated for a base in the Lakes with stunning views and proximity to the village. Ideal for a couple, maybe 4 at a push.

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.
