The property

This superb, end-terrace Cumbrian cottage is located alongside Church Beck in the heart of the village of Coniston, in the beautiful Lake District National Park.

This excellent Lake District holiday home provides an ideal base for touring around this national park with Coniston Water being less than a 15 minutes’ walk away.

Guests at this extremely comfortable Lake District cottage will be thrilled with the riverside location and the backdrop of the Coniston Fells, plus it is just a stone’s throw from several local pubs and the village shops.

In this Lake District holiday home are three bedrooms, along with a kitchen/diner with French windows opening out on to a riverside decked patio, and a sitting room with a cosy open fire and soft comfy sofas, perfect for nestling down into at the end of the day with a glass of locally-brewed Blue Bird Bitter or locally-produced damson gin.

This stylish cottage is located in the heart of the village and guests can easily walk out of the door to explore some of the spectacular routes up the Old Man of Coniston or Wetherlam, which will delight walkers and climbers at any time of the year.

From this spectacular Cumbrian cottage, the quaint village of Elterwater is just four miles away and Ambleside, sitting on the northerly tip of Lake Windermere, is just a 20 minute drive away.

For a day full of adventure, why not head out to the Grizedale Forest Visitor Centre and participate in the treetop adventure course, or explore the beautiful forest on your bicycles with the chance to catch a glimpse of the local deer and red squirrels?

Coniston Water has a watersport centre where you can hire kayaks and row boats and even embark on a sailing course, whilst those wishing for a more relaxing break can sit back and enjoy the beautiful lakeside scenery in the Bluebird Cafe.

This superb Coniston cottage makes an ideal base at any time of the year.
