Tent Lodge Cottage

Overview - The Estate & Lake

Tent Lodge Cottage is one of three adjoining holiday cottages located on the North East head 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 surrounds 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 moor their own boats or those hired from the Coniston Boating Centre. With eight hundred yards of shore to explore and the whole lake to muck about on, in and by, you have the ideal recipe for the perfect Lakeland holiday.

Tent Lodge Cottage is one of the three adjoining cottages, created from an old 18th century stable set around the central courtyard. From the kitchen door there is a little private walled patio garden space for you to relax. The short walk down the track brings you to the lake shore and the private jetties.

 

The Living Spaces

From the little walled patio you step into an open plan sitting room and kitchen/dinning area. To one end is the well equipped kitchen, making for easy catering and pleasant dining. To the other the sitting room area has soft lighting, two sofas and is comfortable to relax around the log burning stove after a day on the lake or in the fells and forest.

 

Bedrooms & Bathrooms

Upstairs are two bedrooms; the master double is bright and airy with views of the lake, the twin overlooks the main courtyard to Tinkler Beck Farm and Cottage.

The bathroom is well appointed with bath, overhead shower, hand basin and WC.

 

Gardens, Grounds & The Lake Shore

Outside there is a little private walled garden area for you to relax. Beyond this are the grounds and the lake shore where you can swim, picnic or simply while away some time gazing out on one of the finest lake views.

All in all Tent Lodge Cottage offers the perfect holiday, offering guests that rare element of fine accommodation, views of our magnificent mountains, private lake access and all set in the heart of Cumbria's Lake District.

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

One of our favourite lakes, much of the shore line is accessible to explore and, at the boating centre in the village you can hire all manner of boats from canoes to little motorboats.

The village offers shops, cafes and inns, the oldest the Black Bull, serving good pub grub and its own local brewed ales.

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 track take you on a 9-mile route under the canopy of ancient and new woodland, passing the many sculptures that have been created along the trail.
