This pretty cottage lies on the fell about a quarter mile from the village and lake and is a firm favourite with our guests. Approached by a steep winding lane, the view is across the valley, coming to rest at Grizedale over on the east shore. Very well presented, the cottage offers guests comfortable accommodation, along with all the benefits of the nearby village amenities, with a fantastic landscape to explore, where you have one of a our most beautiful lakes, a rugged mountain range, plenty of activities on, in and around the water, and a good selection of pubs, cafes, shops and a microbrewery - perfect.

The Living Spaces

Park at the front of the cottage and walk through the little garden to the front door which enters into a hall and stairway. The hand painted kitchen is simple but has everything you need to prepare a good meal and is a pleasing place to dine.

The sitting room is light and airy, furnished with plump comfortable sofas and chairs, along with many personal touches to add ornament and at the heart of the room is a cheery log burning stove. From the window you have views and the whole makes a delightful room to gather and relax.

Bedrooms & Bathrooms

Upstairs are three bedrooms. To the front of the cottage is the master double with a king size bed and there is a further smaller double bedroom and a bunk bedded room. The bathroom has bath, overhead shower, hand basin and WC.

Garden Spaces

The garden is made for relaxing, with a patio area for barbecues and up some stone steps a terrace to explore and all with the most wonderful view as a backdrop.

With walks on your doorstep along with lake activities and a good selection of local inns and cafes, Three Springs will make the perfect Lakeland holiday home for couples or families.

The Location

Set 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.

The big mountain is The Coniston Old Man, rising up over the village and lake. Climbable by any reasonably fit person, there are well-marked tracks to the summit. Even if you only go part way the view will be memorable.

East of the lake is the huge Grizedale Forest. A centre for all things woodland, there are trails that take you on a nine mile route, where on the way you can spot the many sculptures created by resident and visiting artists. At the visitor centre bikes can be hired for mountain biking, and at Go-Ape, the tree top assault course, you can find your inner Tarzan.

Dogs fees are charged per dog at £20.00 for up to 7 nights, £40.00 for up to 14 nights and an additional £20.00 for every week or part week thereafter.

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

We thoroughly enjoyed our week in Three Springs and for our first visit to Coniston the cottage was ideally located for exploring the village, the lake and the fells on foot and a great location for a base to explore the wider area of South Lakes in the car. The cottage was undoubtably one of the best we have stayed in. It was absolutely immaculateRead more, well maintained and very warm and cosy...we couldnt have asked for more to be honest. Hide

Thank you for such a lovely stay at Three Springs. We had a wonderful time! The house was so welcoming and very well equipped. Everything was clean and accessible. The accommodation was comfortable and having the wood burner on in the evening after a day walking was wonderful. The house was very child and dog friendly which was very handy for uRead mores. The location is perfect, close to the centre of Coniston and near a number of places to eat and drink. The garage is close and has a shop with all of the basics needed. The local shop is very well stocked too. Although the approach road was tricky being very short yet steep, narrow and winding we did not find it an issue. Some of our party decided it was best to park in the town and walk up to the house to avoid the drive up. The house is definitely a hidden gem! Hide

We had a wonderful few days staying at Three Springs. The location and the cottage were perfect for us and the two dogs, so warm and cosy with the lovely wood burner fire and comfy sofas!

We have been to Three Springs for a number of years and our reasons for returning regularly have not changed-it remains a welcoming and very well located venue which somehow perfectly matches what's wanted for a Lakes holiday, where walking and uncertain weather are key.We do plan to return.

This was our first dog friendly cottage holiday and we were really impressed with the whole process from initial booking to our stay. Three Springs felt home from home with everything you would need for a relaxing stay . Good size, clean and well maintained, plenty of hot water and fabulous location. Lovely welcome tray on arrival. We have a large Read moredog and there was ample room in hall for a large dog crate/bed and he loved the slate/tiled floors in hall and kitchen. Secure garden, although not large, was a big plus for letting dog out.The view from cottage was superb. A quieter location just out of main town which suited us with easy walking distance to centre. Off road parking a bonus particularly in high season. Plenty of dog friendly pubs/cafes but we didn't get to try them all so we will have to come back again and sample the rest!We will definitely book again and would recommend both Lakeland Cottage Company and Three Springs.

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.
