Overview - The Estate & Lake

Wetherlam is one of three adjoining holiday cottages located on the North East tip of Coniston Water. Along with two other adjacent holiday properties and a row of traditional stone outbuildings, the cottages are set around a triangular courtyard on a small country estate and enjoy access to the estates private lake shore and jetties. All about 1.5 miles easy walk into Coniston village for shops, restaurants and cafes.

This area was much favoured by such literary lights as Tennyson, Turner and later Arthur Ransome, author of the much loved children's series of novels The Swallows & Amazons. Each drew inspiration from the surroundings where the views give a deep sense of the power and beauty of the Lake District landscape.

Today each cottage offers guests the perfect destination set in one of the finest locations in the central Lake District, where the view is filled by the high peaks of Coniston's mountain range, reflected in deep waters.

Surrounding the cottages are beautiful gardens and Lakeland countryside and although the grounds are mainly open and shared there is plenty of space to find a private, quiet spot. A meadow sweeps down to the lake shore where there are three jetties, and for a small fee guests may use them for their own boats. With eight hundred yards of shore to explore and the whole lake to play on, in and by, you have the ideal recipe for the perfect Lakeland holiday.

Wetherlam is one of the three adjoining cottages, created from an old 18th century stable set around the central courtyard. Shared with Grizedale, you have a large, peaceful and shady garden area in which to relax, and enjoy the spectacular view. The short walk down the track brings you to the lake shore and the private jetties.

The Living Spaces

 

A cosy, compact cottage Wetherlam offers the perfect romantic, snug retreat for two. From the porch you step into the sitting room. Plump sofa and arm chairs face a cheering open fire. Light streams through the windows, which give views to the garden, lake and mountains.

The well-equipped kitchen has flag floors and oak beams, and all you need is to add a little candlelight for the perfect romantic supper.

Bedrooms & Bathrooms

Upstairs is the double bedroom and bathroom with bath, overbath shower, hand basin and WC. There is also a small bunk bedroom ideal if you want to bring the kids.

Gardens, Grounds & The Lake Shore

Outside you can relax in the large shared garden or wander down to the lake shore for a picnic or swim. Whether you like playing on water, relaxing in a beautiful setting or simply tucking up with a good book, Wetherlam will afford you that special place for a memorable Lakeland holiday.

Out & About

Coniston village sits at the northwest tip of Coniston Water, sheltered in the lea of the Coniston mountain range and in the very heart of the Lake District. The village is welcoming with shops, cafes, pubs, a couple of restaurants, petrol station and a church.

One of our favourite lakes, much of the shore line is accessible to explore and, at Coniston’s Boating Centre you can hire all manner of boats from canoes to little motorboats.

The big walk is to tackle Coniston Old Man. A true mountain it has easily defined tracks to the summit, where the reward is a spectacular view.

Running down the east shore of the lake is the Grizedale Forest. A day out in itself, the many paths and tracks take you on scenic walks and cycle rides under the canopy of ancient and new woodland, passing the many sculptures that have been created along the trails.

To ensure exclusivity and uninterrupted enjoyment for all resident guests, occasional non-resident visitors are allowed for short visits to the properties only by prior arrangement with the owners. Thank-you

Location

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.
