  • "Great stay in a lovely house."

    Everything maintained to a high standard. Good location in a quiet street, near the centre of Coniston.

  • "The space, layout and facilities were all very well thought out."

    This is an extremely comfortable and attractive holiday let which will obviously appeal to groups of friends or extended families wanting to get together in this popular location. It worked very well for our arranged break (6 adults comprising 2 couples and 2 singles) allowing us to enjoy memorable times together but with the benefits of spacious en suite bedrooms to retire to.

  • "Holme Fell is a lovely comfortable and very well equipped house, furnished to a high standard."

    There are great views from the 3 upstairs bedroom, all of which have en-suite facilities. We loved sitting in the conservatory and enjoying the surroundings. There is also nice seating areas outside. The house is convenient for Coniston Village, a few minutes walk away and its amenities. You can also walk to the lake in 15 minutes. Coniston is a great place to explore the beauty of the Lake District and all it has to offer. All in all would thoroughly recommend Holme Fell for a lovely comfortable stay. It will not disappoint.

  • "What a lovely little gem in the heart of Lake District, we were pleasantly surprised by this bright, spacious and well managed property!"

    You can enjoy the views of high rise mountains at the front side and the back garden is sufficient for kids to play around. The local shops and a lovely cafe (Herdwicks) are just few mins walk away. Highly recommended.

The property

Fabulously-located in the pretty village of Coniston, Cumbria is this superb four-bedroom dwelling, Holme Fell.

Benefitting from pet-friendly accommodation, a woodburning stove and stunning views of the Lake District National Park, Holme Fell welcomes up to eight guests to bask in the ultimate escape to Cumbria.

Upon entering your new home-from-home, take the weight off your feet in the open-plan living space, ideal for hosting family mealtimes and spending quality time altogether; kick back on the sofa as your other half gets to grips with the well-equipped kitchen to rustle up a tasty home-cooked meal, either to be enjoyed at the breakfast bar or outside in the enclosed garden.

Soak up your surroundings and pop open a bottle of fizz as you debrief on the day’s events so far or plan for the one’s ahead.

If the evening grows cooler, retreat to a homely living/dining and cosy up in front of the roaring woodburning stove, ready to relish a movie marathon or catch up on your favourite shows on the Smart TV.

If it’s some much-needed rest and recovery you’re seeking, why not take advantage of three splendid en-suite bathrooms or a ground-floor shower room, treating yourself to a warm shower or indulgent soak in the tub prior to catching some rest.

Choose from a super-king-size, king-size or double on the first floor, or a super-king-size (zip/link) on the ground floor to snooze the evening away, all neatly-presented with plenty of storage to house your belongings in.

If you can tear yourself away, kickstart your itinerary with a stroll into Coniston where you’ll find The Ruskin Museum, in addition to a lovely selection of shops and pubs which are ideal for stocking up on the essentials or treating your family to a hearty lunch.

Heading towards Coniston Water, be sure to stop off at the National Trust owned Steam Yacht Gondola, Hougan Manor Estate and Brantwood, before taking a dip or trying your hand at a range of watersports upon the third-largest lake in the Lake District.

For plenty more to see and do, head to Bowness-on-Windermere, home to The World of Beatrix Potter Attraction, in addition to the much-loved author’s former home at Hill Top, Orrest Head Viewpoint and Holehird Gardens, with Wray Castle and Fell Foot, also residing only a short distance away in Ambleside.

Well-positioned to also visit Rydal, Grasmere and Kendal, all with a plethora of amenities and attractions to experience, Holme Fell is the perfect base from which to explore all that the Lake District has to offer.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £450.
