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.

Guest Reviews


    • “Fantastic month in Lake District”
    • tripadvisor rating
    • “We have had a marvellous month at “The Barn”. The views from the lounge were superb. To watch the sun going down over the Coniston Range is a lasting memory. We travelled up and down the lakes over during the month and it always felt great to come back to “The Barn”. Even on the days when it was just too bad to go out, the days just flew by. The owners are just wonderful. “The Barn” makes a great base, close enough to all of the Lake District landmarks, but far enough away from the hordes of tourists at places like Ambleside. It is also close enough to pop across the border into Yorkshire Dales. It even has two pubs within walking distance at Sparks Bridge.”

    • “We stayed the week before Christmas. The accommodation is lovely and warm with stunning views. It was great value for money and the owner was really good to us. You can see the coniston fells from the master bedroom and nice undulating hills from the front room. All the lakes attractions easily accessible from the barn but far away enough from busy spots. Situated up a lane of the main road so no through traffic. Woods and hills all around too. A few pubs just down the road too. Would recommend.”

    • tripadvisor rating
    • “WOW, very warm greeting from the owner and the place has EVERYTHING you need. If you forget it, don’t worry this place will have it there. The location is great for visiting all that must be seen in The Lakes. Fantastic views from the living room. Very clean and warm even when we stayed (the coldest Easter on record). Great walks around the Barn and the dog loved it. If you go into the fields around dusk you will see dear. Open fire was very cosy. Inside all the walls are painted white and floors wooden, this may put some off as it could look cold and clinical, but we welcomed it. We looked at other rental cottages and they looked dated and grotty, this does not. It does have old beams that do give it a nice feel though. Only problem we had been sleep. Boiler is very noisy and we ended switching it off overnight, so was a bit cold. Double bed was noisy and felt like it was going to collapse, I checked it on the fourth day and every bolt was loose. Alan keys soon fixed it. Main problem was the pillows. We usually take our own, but forgot. They are very flat. Soft and within the first night we all had neck pain. This got worse within the 7 nights and we suffered for a few days after we arrived home. Small moans and the place is fantastic. We will go again, even more so for the food at The Farmers Arms. Owners are fab, place is fab, location is fab… just book!! Wi-fi would be great IN the Barn, pub has it free, but would have been great to access it in the cottage.”

    • “Stayed here for a week in September. Lovely cottage and great base for the South Lakes area. The cottage has a large kitchen/diner which is incredibly well equipped, the owners really have thought of everything, cozy bedroom and first floor living room with the most amazing views. Great info folder too with details of local walks. Only negative point is the small fridge, we like to cook and it was a struggle fitting everything in though there is a pantry. We would definitely book again.”

    • “We hadn't stayed in the southern lakes before and we weren't disappointed. The cottage was easy to find by car, tucked up a little lane near the village of Lowick Green. The cottage offered wonderful views and if you make the short walk up the bridle way to Lowick Beacon you are rewarded with a wonderful panorama showing 'Coniston Old Man' to the north and the coast to the south. The location was ideal, surrounded by countryside and a wooded area to the rear. The cottage was warm and cosy with a real fire in the upstairs living room. The beds were comfortable and we had a good nights sleep. There is a large kitchen and dining area to make use of and the neighbours next door were welcoming and chatty. We didn't come to the lakes to 'stay in' and browse the internet so didn't mind the lack of wifi. Although we did find that the 3G signal was good enough for mobile browsing on our phones. All in all I would recommend this cottage for a quick relaxing getaway or a family holiday”

    • “The Barn was a lovely base to explore the area from. The cottage was very comfortable with lots of nice touches to make you feel at home. The views were stunning. This was our first holiday with our dog. The owners had thought of everything including lots of information about local walks and amenities.”

    Ms Hamilton, Sutton, August 2014

    • “As it was, it was perfect - the location was isolated enough for peace and quiet, The Barn is well equipped and the owner superb at receiving us. Wouldn't ae asked for anything more!”

    Mrs Butler, Maldon, August 2014

    Mrs Wilcox, Exeter, June 2014

    • “The Barn was in a great location with great views from the windows. The standard of cleanliness was second to none. The owner could not have been more helpful and we would recommend it to anyone. The area itself was wonderful and luckily we had great weather.”

    Mrs Etheridge, Dereham, June 2014

    • “Loved staying at The Barn, it is a little piece of heaven. The views from the living room and the bedrooms are stunning, overlooking Lowick, and in the distance Coniston and the Old Man. The owners were lovely to us and brought some basic supplies and helped us with car rental information. The walks around the property are beautiful, especially Lowick Beacon. We ended up walking over 20km from The Barn on Easter Sunday! We would definitely come back.”

    Mr Sanyal, London, April 2014

    • “The position of the property. It has great views from the lounge and is conveniently located for several areas of the Lake District.”
