The property

Coniston 0.4 miles.

This charming, terraced Cumbrian cottage, formerly a miner’s cottage, is located just under half a mile from Coniston, in the beautiful Lake District National Park.

This delightful Lake District holiday home provides an ideal base for touring around this part of England or for simply exploring the famous Old Man of Coniston.

Guests at this lovely Lake District cottage will be delighted with the elevated views across the village and Coniston Fells, and just a short walk away there are many excellent pubs, with some serving local ales.

In this Lake District holiday home there are two bedrooms, along with a kitchen/diner and a sitting room with gas fire, perfect for snuggling up to with a glass of locally brewed Coniston Bluebird.

Outside, just across the lane at the front of this Coniston cottage is a sunny terraced patio with furniture to relax and enjoy the wonderful views.

This quaint cottage near Hawkshead nestles under the Coniston Fells and guests can easily walk out from the door to journey on some of the spectacular routes up the Old Man of Coniston through the Coppermines Valley.

Also, Coniston is a fantastic centre for walkers and climbers, and those wanting to investigate the Tilberthwaite Slate quarries.

From this charming Cumbrian cottage, the delightful village of Hawkshead is just 4 miles away and the bustling town of Ambleside is a 20 minute drive away, with perhaps a detour through Elterwater and possibly Chesters at Skelwith Bridge, which is named after a very naughty white English Bull Terrier, and from where you can sample superb cakes.

For an ideal picnic spot, travel around to the east of the lake, and find a secluded cove on the shores of Coniston Water and sit back and embrace this beautiful landscape.

There are also lots of opportunities to enjoy activities on the water with kayaking and sailing available locally, together with lots of cycling routes and footpaths to explore, or venture further afield to Brantwood and Grizedale Forest.

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