  • “Great location if you're going to do lots of walking, especially Coniston Old Man.”

    Very clean and ideal for 2 couples as you've got 2 bathrooms, both of good size. ...

    Very clean and ideal for 2 couples as you've got 2 bathrooms, both of good size. Lovely view from back bedroom. If looking for romantic and quaint cottage it may not be the one for you. Failed to find BBQ and only 1 log left for fire. Didn't expect lots of fuel but enough for first night. Could also benefit from small table outside so you don't have to eat off your knee if eating outside. Hats off to the cleaners. Exceptional job during covid. Bin bags left weren't advised ones for the independent collection so problematic for refuse collection. Would recommend for walkers keen on exploring the local area. .

The property

Mountain Ash cottage is a bright and spacious family-friendly cottage located in Coniston.

With breathtaking views of the Coniston fells this property is just a few minutes’ walk from the centre of the village and Coniston Water.

Enter through the traditional porch, with space for walking boots and head through to the homely lounge with open fire.

The well-equipped kitchen has everything you need for a comfortable stay and boasts a breakfast table for the family to dine.

Upstairs are two lovely bedrooms, one double with superb views and one twin with en-suite shower room.

Outside the patio garden has a BBQ to enjoy in the summer months, the perfect addition to any summer holiday!

A holiday in Coniston takes you to the wilder landscapes.

For keen walkers take a hike up the Coniston Old Man and for those looking for a gentler walk, head down to Conistion Water where the famous Donald Campbell attempted the water speed record in ‘Bluebird’.

Here you can also enjoy a variety of activities on the water, take a trip on the Steam Yacht Gondola or a spot of wild swimming.

The village itself has a number of Lakeland pubs including The Black Bull Inn that also has its own award-winning Brewery – The Coniston Brewing Co.

Further afield, Skelwith Bridge and the Langdales are just a 5 mile drive away and the village of Elterwater with its famous pub, The Britannia Inn.

About the location


Hawkshead 4 miles; Ambleside 8 miles.

Nestling at the head of Coniston Water, the pretty village of Coniston is surrounded by some of the most beautiful scenery in the Lake District National Park, making it a superb base for touring, with Hawkshead, Ambleside, Windermere and Grasmere just a short drive away. Superb walking, mountain biking and climbing are available locally on Coniston Old Man and Wetherlam, and the lovely woodland trails at Grizedale Forest. For watersports enthusiasts, the quiet lake is ideal for dinghy sailing and canoeing, whilst the less active can enjoy a leisure cruise on the beautiful steam yacht 'Gondola’, or visit Brantwood, the former home of John Ruskin. Nearby attractions include the award-winning village of Hawkshead, home of the Beatrix Potter Gallery, Tarn Hows, one of the most visited beauty spots in the country and Esthwaite Water, famous for its fishing. A first class holiday location at any time of the year.
