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.

Garden Spaces

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.

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.

Lovely cosy cottage within a 25 minute walk of coniston village. Arrived late in cold wet weather so it was lovely when we opened the door into a warm and inviting kitchen with a lovely hamper of local handmade fudge and biscuits to welcome us. The cottage has everything you need and is very tastefully decorated. The temperature of all the rooms isRead more perfect and the bed is super comfy! What more could you want! Hide

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!)

Reviewed by Robert 13th September 2019

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.

Very pretty, well appointed one bedroom cottage on the quieter side of Lake Coniston. Beautifully decorated and very cosy . Easy drive into Coniston village with plenty of coffee houses and pubs to sample. Highly recommended.

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.
