  • “We had a lovely stay with our 1 year old dog.”

    The cottage is clean and homely. There are beautiful views of Old Man Coniston from the garden and it was a secure space for our young dog. Kitchen and bathroom are both high quality. Just a short walk to the village but be aware that it’s on the main road so you do get a bit of traffic noise in the cottage and need to walk on the road for a short distance. Coniston is very dog friendly and the cafes and pubs were very welcoming.

The property

An endearing, end-terrace cottage, offering panoramic views of the surrounding fells and a truly romantic base to spend your time exploring the Lake District National Park.

Offering a traditional, stone-front exterior and a contemporary style throughout, this eclectic is a wonderful gem at any time of the year.

The open-plan living space makes a wonderful spot to spend each evening when you're not out exploring; take a seat on the plush sofa in front of the woodburning stove roaring in the inglenook fireplace, and put on your favourite films with the assistance of the DVD player for a film night with snacks provided in the amply-equipped kitchen space.

Under the archway sits the stylish kitchen, with contemporary hues of cream and wooden worktops, this spot holds every essential for your self-catered stay with access out onto the lawned garden so your canine companion can play freely as you indulge in alfresco dining, or sit together around the dining table in the room as you toast to your terrific holiday moments so far.

Moving up onto the first floor you can find the bedroom accompanied by the impressive bathroom; climb out of the stunning king-size sleigh bed before preparing for your day in the bathroom, equipped with both a bath and a separate walk-in shower to give you the ultimate choice on your relaxing retreat.

Coniston is a wonderful base for those seeking outdoor adventure, with ample walking routes, cycling trails, watersports and fishing available all-year-round, there's so much to see and do no matter when you're visiting; venture up the Coniston Old Man for the most rewarding views of the village, or simply soak in your surroundings from one of the inviting pubs, accompanied by a delicious beverage in hand.

Take a stroll around the Grizedale Forest, sat at the heart of the Lake District World Heritage Site, it offers stunning scenery and even unique sculptures to explore, or why not test your bravery on a sky-high Go Ape course?

Explore the local history in the village's Ruskin Museum, with its exhibitions on Josh Ruskin, Donald Campbell and local heritage, before tearing yourself from this brilliant base to explore the excitement of Windermere, with ample watersporting opportunities on its beautiful lake, as well as a host of family-friendly attractions and historic delights, it's no wonder it's such as a popular day out with those exploring the Lake District.

Oak Tree Cottage is a beautiful holiday base for your escape to Cumbria with your loved one.

About the location

CONISTON

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.
