    “Lovely house in a friendly village.”
    Lovely house in a friendly village. The wilson pub was cosy and well decorated with lovely staff. Within a short drive to great walks and activities. You can also walk from the house. Great place to stay.

The property

Braeside is an attractive, detached and thoughtfully-presented modern property situated in the peaceful hamlet of Torver in the Lake District National Park.

This property is in a superb location as the generous gardens and a small paddock to the rear back onto countryside, which is framed by the dramatic Old Man of Coniston giving glorious views.

On the ground floor, accessed from the double height hallway, are two contemporary bathrooms and two bedrooms, one of which has French doors onto the delightful garden.

There are stairs taking you up to the open plan sitting room with comfortable leather settees, ample seating and a woodburner to enjoy on winter evenings after a busy day.

The dining area is towards the back of the property and has French doors into the garden and five steps take you to the well-equipped kitchen and utility room.

On the second floor there are two large bedrooms which provide flexible sleeping arrangements as both have a double and a single bed.

Torver is well served by a small bakery and two pubs serving real ales and good food, one of which is a mere 50 metres away.

Coniston is just two miles away with its busy hub at the centre and from here you can view Coniston Lake by enjoying a trip on the Steam Yacht Gondola or if feeling active try sailing or hire a canoe.

This area is a joy for cyclists with numerous routes available including the local Grizedale Forest.

For walking and hiking you are spoilt for choice, whatever your ability, with trails leading from the door up Walna Scar and from the Old Man of Coniston to the nearby fells of Dow Cragg, Yewdale and Brin which all have breathtaking scenery.

You also have the attractive villages of Hawkshead, Ambleside and the Landale Valley all within easy reach.

Return at the end of the day to this ideally located cottage and take in the bird song, evening sun and have an alfresco drink on the superb patio before wandering in the lovely and peaceful landscaped garden.

This is an ideal tranquil spot that is convenient for local amenities making it an ideal choice for your Lake District holiday year round.

About the location

TORVER

Coniston 2 miles.

The small hamlet of Torver peacefully rests amidst some of the Lake District's most beautiful scenery and provides a welcoming 14th century inn and a 19th century church, built on the site of an ancient chapel. Renowned as one of Wordsworth's favourite haunts, today it’s known locally as a starting point for exploring the local fells and the Duddon Valley and offers a superb base for exploring nearby Hawkshead, Ambleside and Windermere. Excellent walking, mountain biking, climbing and watersports opportunities are available locally on Coniston Old Man and Wetherlam and the lovely woodland trails at Grizedale Forest. Enjoy a leisurely cruise on the beautiful Gondola steam yacht, visit the award-winning village of Hawkshead with its fantastic Beatrix Potter Gallery, discover Tarn Hows, one of the most visited beauty spots in the country or indulge in a spot of serene fishing on Esthwaite Water. A first class holiday location at any time of the year.
