Windrush lies in a quiet cul-de-sac a few hundred yards from the village centre. Very well furnished, as recognised by the Visit England 4 Star Gold award, the cottage offers guests comfortable accommodation, along with all the benefits of the village amenities and a fantastic landscape to explore.

From your door step you have one of our most beautiful lakes, a rugged mountain range, plenty of activities on, in and around the water, along with pubs, cafes, shops and a microbrewery.

The Living Spaces

Park in the front courtyard where the entrance opens into a hall off which is the bright airy sitting room, with deep sofas and French doors opening out onto the raised deck.

The kitchen is very spacious and well equipped, perfect for preparing meals to serve in the adjoining dining room, with its table and sofa and again opening out to the deck area. Off this room is a utility - laundry room.

Bedrooms & Bathrooms

Upstairs are the four bedrooms, each decorated and furnished with thought to comfort. There is one twin/double bedroom, one double bed, one twin and one bunk bedroom, the first room being convertible from twin to double by pushing the divan single beds together which must be requested at the time of booking. There is a super king sized duvet available for when the beds are configured as a double. Also the bathroom with bath, overhead shower, hand basin and WC. There is another shower room downstairs.

Garden Spaces

The long balcony spans the whole of the back elevation and can be accessed from both the dinning and sitting room and overlooks the garden. Backing onto the little village primary school, the garden area is a mix of grass and decking and is perfect for children to play and adults to wine and dine on a summer evening.

For me, Windrush offers just the right combination of space and comfort, a village location and a superb landscape all combining to make it ideal for family holidays and gatherings of friends for celebration and relaxation.

Out & About

Set the heart of The Lake District, Coniston is popular with walkers, climbers and those that enjoy getting on the water.

The village has plenty of shops, cafes, pubs and inns, the oldest being the Black Bull serving up its own micro brewed ales.

Down at the Coniston Boating Centre you can hire all sorts of craft including canoes, rowing boats, small sailing craft, along with the little motor boats, great for exploring the lake and coves in relaxed style.

Of the mountain range the one is Coniston Old Man. Well marked paths snake to the summit where the view is reward itself.

The Grizedale Forest runs down the east shore. This huge managed woodland, has well laid out tracks that take you on a wonderful nine mile trek, passing the many sculptures that have been created along the trail.

Please note there is a refundable £200 security deposit for this property payable closer to the start of your holiday.

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.
