  • "Lovely character cottage perfect for our visit, parking wasn’t a problem we always found a space for our two cars."

    Highly recommend the crown inn for food . Good bus route for when you don’t want to take the car!

    Thank-you for your positive feedback and we are glad to hear you enjoyed your stay. Property Owner

  • "Positives Location to Coniston centre."

    Very convenient and parking fairly close to accommodation. Comfy and warm. Facilities are sufficient. Enough plates, glasses etc. TV and internet connection all worked fine. Negatives It's quite damp and the short stay was okay. I think a longer stay would have been a challenge for our breathing. The cleanliness could be much better.

    Thank-you for your feedback, I am glad you were warm and everything was working. I am sorry about the cleanliness and I will feed this back to our cleaners. We hope you enjoyed your time in Cumbria. Property Owner

  • "Not the best cottage we have booked through Sykes, then you get what you pay for."

    Furnishing a bit dated. Could not access the Wi-Fi, rear bedroom windows were locked with no key available.

    We are sorry that you could not unlock the windows, the key should have been available. We will look into this, thank-you for highlighting this. The furnishing is as shown in the photographs. We are sorry about the problems with the wi-fi, this was beyond our control and the first time there has been any issues with it. Property Owner

  • "What a lovely cottage."

    We were there when it was snowing outside and we were toasty warm. Didn’t even need the hot water bottles we had brought. Coniston is such a beautiful location. We had a fantastic time cuddling the herdwick sheep at Yew Tree Farm! The host Jo was so informative about the history of farming in this part of the world and how Beatrix Potter was such an important part of history. It was an unforgettable experience. Also, I can’t recommend enough the cafe in the village called Herdwicks. The food was amazing. In addition, I left a really important bag in the cottage and the owners posted it back to me very quickly. If you are thinking of booking this cottage or any of these experiences, you won’t be disappointed.

    Thank-you for you lovely feedback. I am so pleased your property got back to you quickly and safely, and that you enjoyed you stay. Property Owner

  • "We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in the cottage."

    Overall the cottage is very nice and comfortable. A beautiful location. There are a couple of things that need attention. A coffee table in the lounge and shelves in the bathroom. This is not a criticism as we did enjoy our stay

    We are so pleased you enjoyed your stay. Thank you for your suggestions. We have installed a coffee table and are looking a at shelves. Property Owner

The property

Situated in the heart of the Lake District in the quaint yet bustling lakeside village of Coniston is 2 Gateside Cottages, a historic, mid-terrace cottage.

Perfect for a couple, a family, or even friends sharing, this cottage offers amazing views of varying Cumbrian terrains, while providing all the home comforts you need for a memorable self-catering holiday.

Inside, the well-equipped kitchen is home to all your cooking appliances along with dining seating, meaning you can catch up with your designated chef while you discuss plans for your next day out before tucking in to dinner.

From here, the sitting room welcomes you in to snuggle up to watch TV with your loved ones after a busy day of exploring.

Upstairs, choose from a double or a twin bedroom, offering flexibility for friends or the perfect set up for a family.

Outside, the sun-trap courtyard is the ideal place to sit and enjoy your morning coffee, or you can even dine al fresco in the warmer evenings.

Located in the heart of the Lake District, Coniston is a popular tourist destination with plenty of attractions to keep visitors busy.

The Grizedale Forest is a great place for hikers and mountain bikers, while Go Ape Grizedale offers a more adventurous experience with its tree-top ropes course, perfect if you’re travelling with youngsters too!

The National Trust - Tarn Hows is a must-see, especially in the fall when the leaves change colour, and the highlight of a visit to Coniston is undoubtedly the Coniston Old Man, a stunning mountain trail to walk in the area.

Ambleside is a charming town nearby and is the perfect base for exploring the picture-perfect scenery and plethora of outdoor activities that the area has to offer.

Attractions in the town itself include the 16th century Wray Castle, the beautiful Stock Ghyll Force waterfall, and Rydal Cave.

The Roman fort at Ambleside is also well worth a visit if you like to immerse yourself into local history, as is Holehird Gardens, for the horticulture enthusiasts which is home to a variety of plants and trees from around the world.

Explore the Lake District National Park with a stay at 2 Gateside Cottages.
