    “Although it was called Bluebird ...”
    Although it was called Bluebird Loft and we should have realised, but it was a but of a struggle initially with luggage up the 29 stairs. Possibly this should be included in description for people with poor mobility or health issues

The property

This perfect second floor apartment is centrally located in the popular village of Coniston in the Lake District.

Ideally located, this wonderful apartment boasts spectacular views from the cosy open plan living area to the stunning Coniston fells – a view that is constantly changing with the passing clouds.

There are numerous paths and bridleways to wander up and down with lots of excellent cafes and pubs to enjoy at the end of the day.

This contemporary Lake District apartment has an open plan living area and a spacious king-size double bedroom with an en-suite bathroom.

Being surrounded by spectacular scenery, this apartment makes a perfect base for a relaxing holiday with the quaint villages of Hawkshead, Ambleside and Grasmere all within a 25-minute drive.

This lovely property is situated next door to a popular Bistro which is well worth a visit, but early booking is recommended.

Whilst the beautiful Coniston Water is just a 10-minute walk away, which is of course, where Donald Campbell fatally crashed Bluebird back in 1967.

The fascinating Ruskin Museum in the village has a wing dedicated to Bluebird which contains extensive displays and is a great place to visit.
