  • “This is a lovely place to stay, with care taken to ensure it is as comfortable as possible.”

    We had two dogs with us so we made sure we had covers for the floors when they came in from walks and the garden. An outside tap would be really useful for wet and muddy clothes, boots and dogs.

The property

Enjoying an incredible position surrounded by the breath-taking scenery of the Lake District, Holme Fell is a one-storey detached cottage located in the pretty Lakes village of Coniston.

Suited to two couples or a family of four, Holme Fell boasts a lovely interior and an enclosed garden offering lots of privacy.

At the front of the house is the sitting room where a large window seat in the bay window looks out to the outstanding views of the surrounding peaks, and a sofa and armchair are positioned around the Smart TV and the woodburning stove, setting you up for a relaxing evening.

Head down the hall to find the fully fitted kitchen, home to a large electric cooker with a 6-ring gas hob, leading to the beautiful dining room within the conservatory, so you can enjoy your meal with a view.

Step onto the decking and toast to a great holiday as you sit at the outdoor seating, with a good-sized lawn perfect for letting your four-legged friend stretch their legs.

From the dining area discover the first of two super-king-size bedrooms which you can keep as the large indulgent super-king or change into a twin room to suit your party.

This bedroom benefits from a wonderful en-suite bathroom with a bath and a shower over, whilst the second bedroom at the front of the property is served by the shared bathroom.

The centre of the pretty village of Coniston is just a stroll away, where you can find traditional inns, local cafés and independent shops scattered against the mountainous backdrop.

Enjoy spending time on Coniston Water, whether you are trying a new activity like kayaking or canoeing, or simply relaxing as you sail along the waters on the Steam Yacht Gondola run by the National Trust, taking in the sights and sounds of the Lakes.

Walkers can embark on a route leading to Old Man of Coniston, a sizeable peak, right from the front door starting off in the village and climbing through old quarry workings, past Low Water, before reaching the summit, and then coming back down through the much loved walking area of Walna Scar and back to the village.

Spend some time venturing further out into different towns in the Lakes such as Ambleside, a town which marks the head of Lake Windermere, you can visit the Ambleside Roman Fort, see the Stock Hill Force waterfall, or from here take a Windermere Lake Cruise across down to Windermere itself where you can find The World of Beatrix Potter.

For a picturesque break in the Lakes enjoy the tranquil setting at Holme Fell.
