The Property

Lowick Green 0.7 miles. A spacious, semi-detached cottage located in a beautiful rural setting, within walking distance of the hamlet of Lowick Green, three miles from Coniston Water, on the edge of the Lake District National Park. With stunning views across to the Coniston Fells, this Lake District cottage has been lovingly restored from an original farm barn to provide ideal accommodation for a couple or small family. The light and airy first floor sitting room with warming open fire at this cottage near Lowick Green has excellent views out of each window down to the Vale of Coniston with the Old Man on the horizon. Also at this Coniston holiday home is a lovely farmhouse style kitchen with dining area, two bedrooms and a family bathroom, whilst outside the small lawned garden is the perfect place to sit and enjoy a cold drink or evening meal. Ramblers will be delighted with the two public footpaths running past this Coniston cottage, plus there are a number of cycle routes in the area, in particular those found in the Grizedale Forest, and a friendly country pub is just a ten-minute walk away. Coniston Water is the famous location for the children's classic 'Swallow and Amazons', and the lake offers steam boat rides upon the Gondala, giving visitors a tranquil cruise past Brantwood, the majestic former home of John Ruskin.
