Situated in a peaceful location at the north-east head of Coniston Water, this gorgeous cottage promises an idyllic stay for couples. Spend the day walking around the trails to the peak of the Old Man of Coniston (3 miles) before stopping in one of the local pubs up to 2 miles from the cottage for a drink and a bite to eat. With beautiful original features and complementary decor, this property is perfect for returning to after a long day exploring this stunning part of the Lake District.

As soon as you step in through the oak front door, you’ll feel the warm welcome of this pretty cottage. Exposed beams and peaceful neutral tones make the perfect blend of the traditional and the contemporary; sleek appliances and a stunning dark tiled floor in the kitchen diner match seamlessly with the rustic dining table and chairs. Upstairs, comfortable sofas and soft lighting in the lounge beckon you to curl up in front of the wood burner in the evening with a good book. But if it’s warm enough, spend nights out on the front patio, sizzling up a BBQ and dining alfresco.

Make sure you take a romantic trip on the National Trust’s Steam Yacht Gondola on Coniston Water (2.5 miles) before you take a stroll around the many footpaths to experience nature up close. England’s largest lake, Windermere (10 miles), is one of the most popular places to visit in the Lake District but is worth it for the breathtaking views. The charming village of Kendal is a haven for foodies with lots of cafes and restaurants – make sure you taste some Kendal mint cake while you’re there! If gingerbread is more your thing, there’s a famous shop in Grasmere (10 miles) that must not be missed.

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

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

We had a fantastic holiday. The cottage was warm, comfortable and well equipped. Its location meant that access to the lake was only a 15 minute walk.

On arrival of the cottage was quite impressed with the location. On entering the cottage we was disappointed with not having a welcome pack after been driving for 7 hours.

I would say that in the description of off road parking is misleading your vehicle is left half on a road ? Hide

It was a comfortable cottage though there is no mobile phone signal inside. The outside space is very restricted - this was OK for an autum holiday but would have been annoying in the summer especially with a dog. The bed was very comfortable.

Beautifully appointed, cosy cottage on the edge of Coniston Village. Kitchen has all amenities you could need. Plenty of pubs and grub in the village too, and nicely situated for walks in the surrounding area. Parking space is best described as off-road parking. (Couldnt find a hairdryer so perhaps bring one as I had to do without!)

Very comfortable and warm cottage, in the perfect location for our walking and swimming plans. Low beams are characterful so beware if you are tall. Parking space very limited, only half the width of a car fits onto the kerb, the rest sticks out into a narrow lane. Not suitable for anyone with a large car or van.

The cottage in in an amazing location and the initial booking and forwarding of the required information was superb.

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.
