Overview

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 bedroom with a single bed. 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 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.

Wonderful location with plenty of walks directly accessible without needing to use your car. Despite what an earlier reviewer said there is ample room for two cars and you soon get used to the narrow windy access road. Highly recommended, will be back. Tip, the old railway line just above the property is a more pleasant walk to the village or the SRead morehip Inn as it avoids the main road. Hide

Weve had a fabulous week in this cottage. It feels homely, is well equipped (although no tumble drier may be an issue in wetter weather), is comfortable and in an excellent location - amazing walks on the doorstep, views of coniston lake and a short (steep) stroll to Coniston village.

This lovely cottage is in a lovely location, only 5 mins walk to the village centre, or the Ship Inn in the other direction. It's very well equipped, and has an attractive garden on 2 levels. The village was never overrun, unlike Ambleside say. The tarmac access road off the main road is very short, only 30m, but it is steep, narrow and twisty, so Read moreprobably not suitable for the largest of cars. However, we only drove once all week, because all the best walks are right on the doorstep. Hide

It was a bit tricky driving up to the cottage in our large van with steep inclines & sharp bends but once we were up there we found a beautiful cottage with fantastic views of the lake.

Lovely cottage, very well equipped and well suited for a family of 4 with a dog. It is a steep and scary drive up to the car park, but once there everything is perfectly set up. The garden is lovely, and we even had a meal outside once (weather permitting). Nice and well fitted-out kitchen, small but cosy living room, and a master and two smaller bRead moreed rooms upstairs. Only one toilet/bathroom but we managed well. Town centre is a short walk with a fish-and-chips shop on the way. Hide

A great view of Coniston and a nice big lounge, but access road very narrow and steep- difficult for a large jeep. Could not fit two cars in the parking space. Garden was not fully fenced so dog could escape and was very steeply stepped so not good for small children.

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.
