The Dairy lies on The Atkinson Ground Estate set in the heart of the Lake District. Located not far from the northeast head of Coniston Water, Atkinson Ground is a group of individually and privately owned houses and barns for both residential and holiday letting.
Very well furnished, as recognised by the Visit England 5 Star award, the cottage offers guests comfortable accommodation, along with all the benefits of the nearby village amenities and a fantastic landscape to explore. Nearby you have one of a our most beautiful lakes, a rugged mountain range, plenty of activities on, in and around the water, along with pubs, cafes, shops and a microbrewery - perfect.
The Living Spaces
From the oak front door you step into the kitchen - dining room with dining table and chairs set on a fine flagged floor. To one end is a super hand painted bespoke kitchen, topped off with granite work surfaces, this along with all the mod cons you would need to create light lunches and sumptuous dinners.
Stairs lead up to the sitting room, cosy and welcoming. With its log burning stove, comfortable sofa, arm chair and occasional lighting, all is perfect for curling up with a good book or for a bit of real chilling out, break out the pop-corn and take in the latest blockbuster on the flat screen TV.
Bedrooms & Bathrooms
From the first floor a further stairway takes you up to the bedroom. Comfortably furnished with a king sized bed, there are nice extra touches such as bathrobes and complimentary toiletries.
The bathroom has a super whirlpool bath for you to relax in and unwind after a day's walking and exploration. There is also an overhead shower, basin and WC.
To the front of the cottage is a small patio area where you barbecue, relax and simply enjoy a warm sunny day.
In Summary - This is a delightful cottage, furnished for the owner by local interior designer, Sarah Jane Nielsen, offering a comfort and style recognised by Visit England with the Gold Award, where it will make the perfect romantic retreat for two.
Out & About
Set in the heart of The Lake District, Coniston is popular with walkers and those that enjoy getting on the water.
The village offers plenty of shops, cafes, pubs and inns, the oldest being the Black Bull serving up its own micro brewed ales.
At the boating centre you can hire all manner of craft including canoes, rowing boats, small sailing craft, along with my favourite, the little motor boats, perfect to explore the lake and coves in relaxed style.
The big mountain is Coniston Old Man. Well marked paths lead to the summit where the view is reward itself.
The Grizedale Forest runs down the east shore. This huge managed woodland, has well laid out tracks that take you on a wonderful nine mile trek, passing the many sculptures that have been created along the trail.
