  • "My son and I enjoyed our short stay at 1 Lake View, it is a cozy clean cottage in a beautiful location, everything you would need has been provided."

    As a result we would definitely plan to return some day in the future. A previous reviewer had made a comment about the kitchen radiator (rusty) and I would agree this does need attention, it is the only item that lets the decor down!!

  • "The sofa is dated and extremely uncomfortable."

    Missing basic utensils such as potatoes peeler and masher. A must for the Christmas Dinner!!!!!!! Lampshades especially ceiling ones extremely dusty. Other cottages stayed at over the Christmas period left mince pies crackers bottle of Prosecco. Nothing left at this cottage! Small wooden Christmas tree left which was neither good or required but the lights on it were faded because the batteries were running out. Generally needs freshening up with a kick of paint especially the radiator in the kitchen.

  • "We had a fabulous time."

    Cottage contains everything you need, kitchen is well equipped, bed is comfortable. Not a far walk from the village.

    Thankyou for your kind comments - we appreciate the feedback. Property Owner

  • "This is a very small cottage but the owners have made a very nice job of the shower room."

    The Kitchen/Diner was also well done and contained all the necessary appliances. However, it was a little under equipped. A decent set of matching cutlery, a couple of larger cook's knives and a new frying pan would be a good start. The bedrooms had no wardrobes or clothes hangers - just hooks on walls/doors. There was no Visitors book or guidance about refuse collection etc. In terms of books/ornaments etc it was the barest cottage I have ever stayed in. Out of the 4 cottages that we have rented this year (3 through Sykes) this ranked 3rd in terms of amenity, and, at £800 pw in mid September was easily 4th in terms of VFM.

  • "Lovely little compact cottage with great views looking over Coniston lake."

    It is right on the main road so in the slate driveway you do have to keep your dog on a lead. The patio is small with only a bench for seating (picture shows chairs as well - but there was none there). So if there is more than 2 of you, you'll have to sit on the floor. No welcome note at all (never had this before). Very near the Ship Inn. Lots of walks from the door. We still had a great week away.

    Hi there, thankyou for your comments-the missing chairs are a slight mystery-I will investigate! And your comment about the absence of a welcome note is also very helpful-I agree that should be there and would be very useful for visitors-it will be sorted! glad you had a good stay overall.

  • "This was nice cottage with lovely views especially from the bedroom."

    The shower was really good for a holiday let. The radiator in the kitchen probably needs replacing and it would be good if there could be a way to secure the seating area so dogs could be off the lead. Overall though, we were very happy with this cottage.

    Clean and beautifully decorated, with everything you need for your stay. Local to pubs, shops, petrol station, lake, The old man, Coppermines etc Nothing negative to say other than we are sad to be leaving and going home, and would definitely come back again. Thank you for having us

  • "Great cottage, quite a lot of space inside."

    Well kitted out with some nice touches. Directly onto the busy road was a concern with dogs (and anyone with small children). Parking for 1 car was ok, but we had two- luckily next door at number 2 let us use one of theirs. Would recommend staying here but awareness of the road needs to be considered.

    Well equipped and comfortable. A ten minute walk into Coniston with its pubs and shops and across the road the Ship Inn, a lovely old country pub.

  • "It is no use having the information pack related with tel."

    Nos. Etc to the previous cottage owner prior to Sykes take over. Nor is it much use in the depths of winter to have a log burner “starter pack” if you do not indicate where further supplies of logs can be bought from. The situation was compounded by a completely disinterested customer “service” operator at Sykes who refused to help and was abrupt to the point of rudeness when in frustration I asked to speak to a supervisor and she refused to put me through. I will NOT be using Sykes again.

  • "The property was freezing cold when we arrived, we put the heating on but nothing was happening."

    We couldn’t get through to anybody at 10pm at night so had to sort it ourselves. Turns outer the boiler is losing pressure and constantly needs topping up to 1.5 bar. Not a problem in the end but just a note to the owner, we didn’t follow this up any further whist away as we were trying to enjoy the holiday. Good job I knew a few simple things about combi boilers otherwise it would have been a cold few days. Thanks Craig

The property

Settled on the outskirts of Coniston overlooking the lake is this traditional, end-terrace cottage, 1 Lake View.

This cottage makes a lovely bolthole for families, couples, and friends looking to explore the Lake District by foot, bike or car, with The Ship Inn pub a stone's throw away, private parking, a woodburning stove, and a Smart TV for entertainment.

Inside, you'll find space to leave muddy boots and outdoor gear, before making yourself at home in the kitchen/diner; it has everything you need for a self-catering stay including an electric oven and hob, washing machine, and dishwasher.

Prepare a home-cooked dinner to be served at the farmhouse dining table for four, then make your way to the sitting room.

Two armchairs and a sofa are set in front of the woodburning stove where you can watch the Smart TV or admire the views from the patio doors of the rolling hills, Grizedale and Lake Coniston.

Why not take a glass of wine out to your private patio to make the most of the incredible views?

As night falls, head upstairs to find two bedrooms, a double with lake views and a twin, along with a contemporary shower room with a spacious walk-in shower.

Coniston is a great base for outdoor enthusiasts with climbing, walking, watersports, fishing and cycling to be enjoyed all year-round.

Grizedale is a national forest with a variety of hiking or cycling trails, whilst the Lakeland Trail and the Coniston 14 are two popular annual events for runners.

Coniston Water hosts a variety of waterspots and boating activities including the National Trust's Steam Yacht Gondola, a luxury yacht, but if you prefer staying on land, the mountains of The Old Man of Coniston, Scafell Pike, and Helvellyn are all within easy reach.

The village of Coniston has a convenience store, The Ruskin Museum to discover local heritage, and walks from your doorstep through idyllic countryside to the likes of Coniston Copper Mines.

For more attractions and amenities, head further afield to Hawkshead, Ambleside with its Roman Fort, and the bustling Lake Windermere where you can discover the history of Beatrix Potter, cruise along the lake, and wander the National Trust's Wray Castle.

There's something for everyone on your next Lake District adventure at 1 Lake View.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £250.
