If your perfect holiday is to be by water then Tinkler Beck Farm may be for you. With its lake shores and views of the mountain, this is possibly the finest location in the Lake District.

One of five holiday homes overlooking Coniston Water, guests can enjoy the private lake shore and jetties, swim, fish or simply picnic and paddle - perfection...  

Tinkler Beck Farm


The Estate & Lake

Tinkler Beck Farm is one of two adjoining holiday cottages located on the North East tip of Coniston Water, about 1.5 miles walk to village. Along with three 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.

The 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.

There are three jetties, which for a small fee guests may moor their own boats or hire rowing, sailing or powered boats from the Coniston Boating Centre. With eight hundred yards of shoreline to explore and the whole lake to muck about on, in and by, you have the ideal recipe for the perfect Lakeland holiday.



Tinkler Beck Farm, the property to the left in the main picture, and the adjoining Tinkler Beck Cottage, are both situated on the west side of the lane above the lake. Set around a central courtyard opposite a row of three other cottages, each is much envied for a fabulous position so close to the lake. For me it is the combination of style and comfort, coupled with magnificent surroundings in which to both relax and play, that makes this a very special holiday home and as such has been recognised by Visit England with a Five Star award.


The Living Spaces

The ambience is modern with light streaming through the arched courtyard doorway, which opens into the sitting room. Very well furnished with large contemporary sofas drawn around a log-burning stove giving a glow in winter.

From the sitting room double doors open into the kitchen - dining room fully equipped and furnished to make a fine dining place.


Bedrooms & Bathrooms

Stairs lead up to a long hall off which are three bedrooms, each very comfortable, offering two king size doubles and one twin.

The bathroom has bath, overhead shower, hand basin and WC. Finally there is a second shower room downstairs.


Gardens Grounds & The Lake Shore

The grounds are fantastic. To the front, guests have a private paddock, solely for use by Tinkler Becks Farm guests. The courtyard is shared by the other cottages, however there is a patio area just for Tinkler Beck Farm set out with garden table and chairs. The vista opens to a magnificent view of the lake and mountain. Down at the lakeshore you can picnic and swim in the gentle water, and there are three jetties to moor your own or hired boats.

All in all the cottages of the Tent Lodge Estate offer 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 shoreline 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 is welcoming with 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.
