Brigg House

Overview

This large detached house offers the perfect venue for families and friends to gather for holidays, celebration and reunion. Set close to Coniston water, one of our most beautiful lakes, it is a perfect base for striking out on hikes and walks.

Torver has always been popular as a base for both high and low level walking, with pathways to The Old Man for a big climb, tracks across Torver Common and paths that lead down to the lake where you can explore and swim in summer. The village offers two pubs, the Wilson Arms and Church House, a fine traditional inn, some 600 years old with flagged floors, low ceilings, roaring log fires, fine beers and excellent cuisine. Brigg House was built during the Victorian period and is an imposing large detached property set in private grounds.

 

The Living Spaces

From the main hall you enter into the sitting room with large bay windows, comfortable furnishings and an open fire to add warmth and atmosphere in winter.

The dining room, set with a fine table, leads into the conservatory. Off the dining room, via a small pool table room, is the galley kitchen with granite work surfaces and a range cooker.

 

Bedrooms & bathrooms

Upstairs are four bedrooms; three double and one a twin, all with en-suite shower rooms. There is also a further bathroom. The fifth bedroom is downstairs, off the sitting room, a double bed and bathroom with overhead shower.

 

Grounds & Gardens

Mature gardens and grounds surround the house with trees, shrubs and grassed areas, and with the added fun of a spa hot tub makes the perfect place to relax and play. In summation, Brigg House will offer guests a perfect venue for lazy holidays, family gatherings in splendid surrounds and an ideal base to explore Lakeland.


 


The Location

A few minutes walk brings you to Torver with its two pubs, the best of which is Church House offing fine cuisine.

Coniston village lies two miles north, set in the very heart of the Lake District at the northwest tip of Coniston Water and sheltered in the lea of the Coniston mountain range. Radiating from the stone bridge, spanning Church Beck, the four main streets are a bustling community with a fine church, shops, a post office, cafes, a local brewery and five good pubs.

Coniston Water is one the most people friendly lakes, with much of the shore and the whole lake open to the public. At the Boating Centre you can hire rowing boats, sailing dinghies, kayaks and canoes or my favourite, the small motorboats, perfect for a day out exploring the hidden bays and wooded coves.

Your Say

Thank you, we did enjoy our stay, it's a great location and the garden was lovely at this time of year. The young people enjoyed the hot tub and we got some great views form the top of the Old Man, the weather was very kind to us. 

Hi John, Just wanted to say a big big thank you for organising our stay at Brigg House. We had a wonderful week celebrating my mum's 60th birthday and my niece's 6th birthday.  
Thanks again. Joanne 

What a lovely house, well equiped with a home - from - home ambience. The hot tub was a real treat after coming down from a long day on the 'Old Man'

Hello Clare and John Serginson,
I booked Brigg House, Torver from 16th to 23rd March and would like to tell you that my husband, family and friends had a most wonderful time. Brigg House more than lived up to our expectations. My husband, for whom the whole holiday was a surprise birthday treat could not have been more delighted. We had 27 family and friends join us on the Sunday afternoon and they all had a great time and will be spreading the word about the lovely house and location.
Considering the amenities provided we certainly had value for money. As for the continual sunshine - that was the icing on the cake.
 
Had a terrific time. Great accommodation. Loved the Spa, Chess Board & Pool Table. I could even get up in the middle of the night without disturbing anyone.
