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 a our most beautiful lakes, a rugged mountain range, plenty of activities on, in and around the water, along with pubs, cafes, shops and a micro brewery.


The Living Spaces

Park in the front cortyard 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 and shower room.


Bedrooms & Bathrooms

Upstairs are the four bedrooms, each decorated and furnished with thought to comfort. There are two doubles, one twin and one bunk bedroom, also the bathroom with bath, overhead shower, hand basin and WC.


Garden Spaces

The long balcony spans the whole of the back elevation and can be accessed from both the dinning and sittroom 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.
