Overlooking Coniston Water, this traditional former stablehand’s cottage has been imaginatively updated to provide cosy and romantic accommodation for two. Ideal for a couple exploring the Lake District, the cottage also has plenty of space for two children, and is set in a stunning location on a beautiful country estate. One of a group of four holiday cottages, the property has access to shared gardens and a lovely private stretch of lakeside shore. There’s also access to a jetty, making it a great location for visitors wanting to bring their own boat onto the lake.

With a cosy, friendly lounge and a delightful country-style kitchen/diner, the cottage provides a fantastic space to relax in at the end of a wonderful day, complete with a traditional wood burner, slate flagstone flooring and beautiful lakeside views. There are also two comfortable bedrooms: a king-size room and a small bunk bedroom. Stepping outside, the large, shared garden is perfect for sitting back with a glass of wine in the evening. You will also have access through the grounds to the estate’s private shore on the lake – an ideal spot for picnics, paddling, fishing and keeping your boat.

A wonderful spot for boating, Coniston Water has inspired writers and artists including Beatrix Potter, Tennyson, Turner and Arthur Ransome of ‘Swallows and Amazons’ fame. With the mountains of the Old Man of Coniston in the distance, this is a fabulous area for walkers, hikers, cyclists and nature lovers. Nearby attractions include Grizedale Forest (5.5 miles) with its miles of walks, sculpture trail and Go Ape centre. Also nearby are Coniston (1.5 miles) and Hawkshead (3 miles) where you will find welcoming pubs and restaurants. A fantastic area for water sports enthusiasts, Windermere, Grasmere, Rydal Water and Esthwaite Water are all within 10 miles.

We had a fabulous week in this small character cottage which was perfect for the two of us. It's tastefully furnished and has everything you need but it's the location that's the best bit. Stunning views from your private table over Coniston Water with Old Man of Coniston in the background. Owner is brilliant too - very chatty and helpful. We had aRead more fabulous week and there's lots to do in the area too. Recommend Coniston Museum, Hill Top, Tarn Hows, Gunners How, Bowness & Brantwood House. Hide

What a stunning place! A gorgeous little cottage situated on an elevated position overlooking Coniston water - whats not to love? The cottage was quaint but perfectly big enough for my other half and I for the week, and was very homely and comfortable. The addition of the private jetties/beach area was simply the icing on the cake. I have to say, tRead morehis was all really a little slice of paradise and is somewhere I definitely want to visit again! Hide

One of the best views in the Lake District! And you can see it from your bed (double room), the sitting room as well as the dedicated table on the lawn. Richard and Wendy (owners) very welcoming. We absolutely loved this cottage. Ideal for a couple or family with small children, not 2 couples.

Fabulous little place right on the water with amazing views, giving the isolation feeling we wanted. Richard and Wendy were very welcoming and attentive. The cottage had everything we needed and more, perfect for our 1 yr old and we could get cozy in front of the log burner in the evening

We stayed at Tent Lodge Cottage to celebrate our 40th wedding anniversary. It did not disappoint, we had a wonderful time and were sad to leave. Our hosts, Richard and Wendy were just lovely people and very welcoming. The position of this cottage is superb, views are amazing. Highly recommend a stay here and would definitely go back, thank you.

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.
