The property

"This quirky Lakeland terrace cottage, on the edge of Coniston village with wonderful with glimpses of the lake through the trees is a real place to get away from it all.

In a clearing in the woods, close to the mill beck with lovely gardens front and rear it’s just a little bit of heaven.

You’ll find lots of charm and character with low ceilings, slate floors and the occasional squeaky floorboard!

Lovely and cosy with a woodburning stove in the living room and outdoor gardens with a chimenea.

Just right for a glass of wine to watch the sunset.

Whether you fancy a gentle stroll along the shores of Coniston Water, or up the high Coniston Fells, of Wetherlam, Dow Crag and the bridleway to Coniston Old Man, the busy village of Coniston a short walk away with local shops and traditional pubs serving great local produce.

Find out about the heritage here of Donald Campbell, or the magical setting for Swallows and Amazons, and on the water you’ll find the National Trust’s elegant Steam Yacht Gondola, or Coniston Launch to take you on a trip; or hire your own kayak or canoe at the boating centre.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £200.
