    “Review.”

    My friend and I and our 2 dogs have just spent a lovely weekend at Greenbeck Cottage. I have a heart condition which decided to flare up the day before departure. The cleaner was very kind and allowed us to go into the cottage early as we had been in Coniston since 9.30 as Kay was paddleboarding. We had a wonderful relaxing two days and although I was unable to walk very far we had trips out in the car whilst she walked the dogs and I watched.

    My friend and I and our 2 dogs have just spent a lovely weekend at Greenbeck Cottage. I have a heart condition which decided to flare up the day before departure. The cleaner was very kind and allowed us to go into the cottage early as we had been in Coniston since 9.30 as Kay was paddleboarding. We had a wonderful relaxing two days and although I was unable to walk very far we had trips out in the car whilst she walked the dogs and I watched. She really enjoyed the paddleboarding so if you are into water sports give it a go. We lit the lovely fire on our last night even though it wasn't cold just because it made it so cosy. Comfy beds and everything you could need in the kitchen. We took all we needed with us but a small welcome basket with perhaps local biscuits, a small coffe and tea and sugar supply and a bottle of milk in the fridge for those who forget. Although supplies are only a few steps away. We struggled to get a take away meal on Sunday but the Black Bull - where we had lunch on Saturday - were so helpful and Kay took two plates which they loaded up for us with veggie burger, chips and a huge salad. The dogs loved the little garden at the back with the stream which my dog was sad he couldn't get into. We are already planning a return for a longer stay in the summer.

The property

Set within the pretty village of Coniston, fronted by a small courtyard, and with access to walks right from the doorstep, is Greenbeck Cottage.

Ideal for a family of five, two couples and friends, this attached cottage offers a cosy interior with an open fireplace, dining area for enjoying home cooked meals and plenty of storage space.

With private off-road parking for one car, and some additional guest spaces available, arrive safely into this homely accommodation.

To the left is the sitting room.

Gather together after a day of exploring and get snug and warm in front of the bright orange flames as you enjoy a film on TV.

Across the hallway is the kitchen, with a seating area for 5 to join around a farmhouse table.

The fitted units and sleek worktops assist with cooking preparations throughout your stay, while the slimline dishwasher helps with the cleaning up.

Upstairs are a set of nicely presented bedrooms, served by a white bathroom.

Views over the patio to the rear of the property stretch across the green fields and over to the Coniston Fells.

The garden backs onto a fenced babbling beck and occupies a barbecue enjoying alfresco lunches on a sunny afternoon.

Bring your four-legged friends along and let them enjoy the long walks and fun-filled activities as well.

Some of the most beautiful scenery engulfs this property, making it a splendid base for touring the area.

Pay a visit to Hawkshead, Ambleside, Windermere and Grasmere, with shops, pubs, woodland trails, cycling routes, boat trips and so much more!

For those looking for something more energetic on the water, the lake is ideal for dinghy sailing and canoeing.

Climb Scaffel Pike, visit Tarn Hows and try delicious local ales at the many watering holes scattered all over this wonderful region.

The perfect escape to Cumbria!
