Situated in stunning grounds in the hamlet of Nibthwaite, this charming property is ideal for families or groups of friends looking for an idyllic Lake District holiday. Head through woodland and moorland straight from the cottage to take trails leading to Grizedale Forest (8.5 miles on foot, 10.5 by road) and finish off your day with a bite to eat at the pub just 1 mile from the property. The beautifully maintained gardens are perfect for a peaceful afternoon picnic, while the superb timber floors and panelled walls make the cottage a cosy and welcoming place to return to after a long day out.

You’ll feel the charm of this holiday let as soon as you step through the door into the open-plan living area. The kitchen is fresh and bright with a wonderful farmhouse-style table to eat delicious meals at, while rustic furnishings and a roaring open fire in the lounge beckon you to sink into the sofas and curl up in front of the TV. Spend sunny afternoons in the conservatory or the adjoining reading room, or find a bench and read your book among spectacular fell and woodland views. At bedtime snuggle into bed in the tastefully-decorated bedrooms.

Located at the southern tip of Coniston Water, the property is just 9.5 miles from the boating centre where you can hire paddleboards, kayaks and canoes; if you’d prefer a more leisurely view of the lake, go for a ride on the National Trust’s Steam Yacht Gondola. Take a walk to the top of the Old Man of Coniston (10 miles) where you’ll find trails suitable for all abilities. You must visit Lake Windermere (16.5 miles) for magnificent views, boat rides and quaint villages, while the National Trust’s Hill Top (10.5 miles) is the perfect attraction for Beatrix Potter fans.

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

A lovely cottage set in a quiet area of the Southern lakes but with easy access to various places with a short drive. The sound of the stream that ran through the garden was pleasant and relaxing when sat in the front room with the side garden door open. Situated near a great Pub called the Red Lion if you want to be extra lazy and eat out.

Lovely place in a beautiful setting. Very traditional style and without shops or pubs close by (1 hour walk / 10 minutes drive), so it may not be for everybody, but we wanted a quiet holiday and we could not be happier with our choice.

Really happy with our stay, the cosy cottage being exactly what we wanted. Emma and Dicken were very kind and nothing was too much trouble. I can thoroughly recommend staying at Peat House.

Location

Map
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.
