The property

This superb, ground floor apartment is centrally located in the village of Coniston, in the beautiful Lake District National Park, and nestles in the shadows of the Old Man of Coniston.

The cottage has a king-size double bedroom with an en-suite bathroom, a cosy sitting room with a woodburning stove and a perfectly-equipped kitchen.

Outside, sit back on the garden bench and admire views to the Coniston Fells, whilst you pull on your walking boots.

From the cottage, a 10-minute walk takes you down to Lake Coniston, or you can enjoy a longer jaunt to pretty Tarn Hows.

The village of Coniston itself has its own brewery and a good selection of restaurants to enjoy.

This lovely property is situated next door to a popular Bistro which is well worth a visit but early booking is recommended.

Grizedale Forest joins Coniston Water at the east side, with a host of trails and paths to explore, whilst Brantwood, the majestic home of John Ruskin, has stunning gardens and a lovely tea shop.

This Coniston cottage is a great base for exploring this beautiful area, with excellent amenities just around the corner.
