Set among stunning scenery with a backdrop of the rugged Old Man of Coniston, this stunning property promises an extra special stay to guests. Sleeping four over two sumptuous bedrooms, it won’t be long before you’re off down to the estate’s private lakeshore area to have a picnic or even sailing your own boat off the jetty. The Coniston Boating Centre is only 2 miles away and you can hire kayaks and paddleboards or go for a gentle boat trip on the National Trust’s Steam Yacht Gondola. And when you’re worn out, you’ll have a gorgeous cottage to return to.

Step into this former 18th-century stable to be greeted with a beautiful open-plan living area where calming neutral decor paired with blue hues in the lounge create a cosy atmosphere for snuggling up in front of the wood burner. Cook up a storm in the kitchen among glossy white units and sleek appliances before sitting down to eat at the contemporary dining table, or heading out to the shared walled garden to dine alfresco. After a long day out walking, take an indulgent soak in the bath where grey and white tones make it feel like a spa, before slipping between the sheets in the opulent bedrooms among peaceful pastel colours.

When you can drag yourself away, take long walks through Grizedale Forest (5.5 miles) where there are trails to suit little legs as well as grown-up ones. If you’re feeling adventurous, take on a treetop challenge at Treetop Trek Windermere (8.5 miles), but if you’d prefer to keep your feet firmly on the ground go on the self-guided Bowness-on-Windermere Treasure Trail (start point 12 miles) and solve clues to find the fictional treasure. For romantic walks and independent cafes and shops, head to Kendal (19 miles) for the day.

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

The cottage is in a great position. Coniston town is just a short drive where there are a number of pubs and shops. The building is old and characterful but it has been modernised to a good standard. There is no TV in the bedrooms though despite there being a socket near the ceiling obviously put there for a TV. Not everyone would find this a negatRead moreive though! Hide

I rarely use 5stars as I usually think it has to be perfect for that. So to use 5 stars shows how much we thought of our cottage. Every bit of kitchen equipment you need. Clean and comfy downstairs and upstairs. We had dreadful weather but perfect to come back to log burner, comfy sofas and clothes dryer by the fire too!! Being able to walk to, swiRead morem in and play by the lake was great too. The owners were lovely. Very friendly and helpful. Perfect stay! 5 Stars indeed! Hide

This cottage can only be described as 5*. My husband and I have stayed in dog friendly cottages all over the UK but by far this was My favourite. We arrived in the dark which was disappointing but then waking up the next morning to the stunning views was a real treat! The kitchen was very thoughtfully stocked. The cottage clean and cozy with real aRead morettention to detail. The log burner was great for the evenings and the bed also very comfortable. The location is fantastic for exploring!! Hide

Excellent location, nice and quiet as long as the guests in the other cottages are not rowdy! Lake at the bottom of the field behind the property. The cottage had everything we needed including weighing scales and a garlic crusher. The owner came in and plunged the plugholes very soon after we reported slow drainage.

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.
