    “The location is just fantastic, the photos do not do it justice.”

    Waking up to that view and seeing the sheep right outside the window is heavenly. There is a lovely off road short walk to the village.

    Waking up to that view and seeing the sheep right outside the window is heavenly. There is a lovely off road short walk to the village. The cottage is cosy and has everything you need, it is very clean and comfortable. We enjoyed playing in the garden and going on walks around the lakes.

The property

A short stroll from the shores of Coniston water, and a country pub, this traditional gamekeeper's cottage is full Lakeland character: stone-flagged floors, old oak beams, real fires and cottage windows -all wrapped up with tasteful decor and furnishings.

Private parking for 2 cars outside the cottage, and further parking close by.

Entrance porch with space for walking clobber.

Dining room with local slate floor, pine furniture and working range/wood burning stove.

Cosy separate living room with warming open fire, and original beams.

The modern fitted kitchen looks out onto National Trust land.

Upstairs to 2 pretty bedrooms, 1 double and 1 twin, both with fell views.

The bathroom overlooks Coniston water and features a roll top bath.

Outside, you'll find a private enclosed garden with stunning fell views, patio area for dining and a secure bike store with racks for four bikes.

A Coniston holiday cottage takes you slightly away from the hustle and bustle of Bowness and Lake Windermere, to a wilder landscape full of adventure. Coniston Water takes you to a quieter area, still with a busy village, but more about walking and being on the water.

It featured in Arthur Ransome's Swallows and Amazons, and was of course where Donald Campbell met his untimely end during his water speed record attempt in 'Bluebird'. If you’re looking for breathtaking surroundings; dramatic fells including Coniston Old Man, wild woodlands and wonderful Lake District walks, Coniston is a great place to be.

The village centre is well equipped for stocking up the kitchen with traditional butcher and supermarket, lovely tea rooms, cafes and traditional Lakeland pubs - the Black Bull Inn is well worth a visit for its award-winning brewery the Coniston Brewing Co. For a cultured day out, head to Brantwood historic house - an impressive residence overlooking the lake, once home to John Ruskin, where you’ll find a range of events such as talks, concerts, craft workshops and even outdoor theatre, as well as lovely grounds to wander in.

About the location


Hawkshead 4 miles; Ambleside 8 miles.

Nestling at the head of Coniston Water, the pretty village of Coniston is surrounded by some of the most beautiful scenery in the Lake District National Park, making it a superb base for touring, with Hawkshead, Ambleside, Windermere and Grasmere just a short drive away. Superb walking, mountain biking and climbing are available locally on Coniston Old Man and Wetherlam, and the lovely woodland trails at Grizedale Forest. For watersports enthusiasts, the quiet lake is ideal for dinghy sailing and canoeing, whilst the less active can enjoy a leisure cruise on the beautiful steam yacht 'Gondola’, or visit Brantwood, the former home of John Ruskin. Nearby attractions include the award-winning village of Hawkshead, home of the Beatrix Potter Gallery, Tarn Hows, one of the most visited beauty spots in the country and Esthwaite Water, famous for its fishing. A first class holiday location at any time of the year.
