    No complaints suited our needs. We apologise as we think we forgot to empty the dish washer just before we left.

  • "Thanks for a lovely stay."

    Just a couple of details to bring to your attention. The path leading round to the entrance was quite slippy and the porch light under the french doors was not working (bulb). We will be back next year to stay, it was the perfect bolt hole for us and met all our expectations.

  • "Just spent a lovely week in Low Dow Crag cottage ."

    Extremely clean very comfortable well equipped accommodation in a beautiful setting. Two very minor niggles the bedroom needs blackout curtains and the toilet flush is a little temperamental. Would definitely stay again. Coniston is a great location for exploring the Lakes. Great pubs for eating out after a long day walking.

  • "A lovely warm, quiet apartment in a good location for walking from the door."

    The TV is a bit old fashioned with limited channels, work space in the kitchen area was also limited. The extractor fan in the bathroom needs attention.

    Dear Ann We are glad you found the apartment warm and well-located. Thank you for the feedback on the extractor fan. We are pleased to say this has been replaced with a new unit. We have added extra shelving in the kitchen too. We hope the TV offers enough variety for those rainy days when one cannot enjoy the fabulous surrounding outdoors, however we will look at options to enrich the DVD collection.

  • "Very clean & comfortable."

    Ideal for walking - 20 minutes to Coniston village on old railway line. Follow advice and take a torch as the lane is unlit. Access at the rear of the property.

    Dear Bryan We are glad you found the apartment comfortable and well located. Thank you for the feedback on lane lighting. There is a torch in the apartment however we have now furnished additional ones. Property Owner

The property

This immaculately-presented apartment, Low Dow Crag, is situated on the ground-floor of a semi-detached property in an outstanding location, close to Coniston in Cumbria.

Boasting breath-taking views of the fells and open countryside, including that of the Old Man of Coniston, this delightful property is an ideal base for a couple or solo traveller wishing to visit and explore all that this area has to offer.

Inside this lovely apartment there’s a spacious open-plan living area with a well-equipped kitchen, dining area and sitting area with a gas coal-effect stove, as well as French windows that open out to the patio, from where you will be able to admire glorious views and birdlife, including woodpeckers.

The patio is a perfect spot for a morning coffee with a newspaper or local map as you decide on the day’s activities, or for unwinding with a glass of wine in the evening, after which a place to rest can be had in the double bedroom.

Coniston has a number of pubs, cafes and shops, as well as its own brewery producing Bluebird Bitter, which is named after the boat that broke the water speed record by Donald Campbell in 1950.

You may wish to decide to take a water cruise on one of the steamers, relax and enjoy the stunning scenery of the fells, or visit Brantwood, the home of John Ruskin, which is on the other side of Coniston Water.

Local hiking and walking are in abundance from the Old Man of Coniston to the surrounding fells of Dow Crag and Yewdale, plus the famous beauty spot of Tarn Hows is close by.

A short drive away from the apartment is Hawkshead, Ambleside, Windermere and Grasmere making Low Dow Crag the ideal touring base for exploring the Lake District National Park and beyond.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £150.
