The Property

Coniston 2.5 miles. This quirky, semi-detached cottage was the former railway station for the hamlet of Torver. This superbly-presented Coniston cottage has a cosy sitting room, benefiting from spectacular views of the Coniston Fells, including The Old Man of Coniston, and the original ticket office window is still in place, a little reminder of its former use. This charming cottage is less than a mile from Coniston Water in the beautiful Lake District and even has an excellent pub that is just a short walk away. At the front of this Torver cottage are extensive grounds leading from the former platform which overlook adjoining fields. The garden is a haven for wildlife and provides a perfect place to simply admire this lovely location. This Torver cottage is ideal for couples who wish to enjoy the numerous footpaths and bridleways right on the doorstep or to explore the pretty villages of Hawkshead and Coniston. A perfect way to explore Coniston Water is on a cruise on board the Victorian Steam Gondola, with departure points around the lake, meaning there is a variety of cruise options available, including a picnic cruise, Ruskin experience and, for the enthusiast, Engineer for a Day! This cosy Torver cottage is perfect any time of the year, surrounded by stunning scenery and fascinating wildlife. Note: This property is adjacent to Ref. 906561, together they sleep 7.
