Wetherlam

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 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.

The properties lie about one and a half miles from the village, an mostly easy flat walk or cycle drive around the head of the lake.

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.

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

The corner cottage of the three, 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, overhead shower, hand basin and WC. There is also a small bunk bedroom which may be used at a small extra charge and on request.

 

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 mucking about on water, relaxing in beautiful surrounds or simply tucking up with a good book, Wetherlam will afford you that special setting 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

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.
