  • “The window in the master bedroom wouldn't open and the duvets were quite thick for summer.”

    Otherwise as expected - a basic but comfortable house with all the necessities. We enjoyed the use of a log fire on the rainy days. Lovely, quiet, rural location. Excellent for walks.

The property

A charming and extremely comfortable cottage in a dream setting.

This former quarryman’s cottage is surrounded by stunning scenery and the tranquil location makes it a perfect spot to enjoy the local birdlife, red squirrels, inquisitive sheep, deer and rabbits.

Families can enjoy walking, watching and pond dipping during the day, and visit some of the area’s best pubs and eateries in the evenings.

However, the cottage is just so cosy you might prefer to stay snuggled up in front of the fire.

It comes with private parking for 2 cars, and don’t forget the welcome tray with everything needed to revive yourselves with a hot brew or glass of wine. Hodge Close and its row of traditional cottages is just 3 miles from the village of Coniston.

The cottage is entered through the dining room and well-equipped kitchen with slate floor.

Through to the charming sitting room with welcoming fire and picture-perfect sofa and chairs.

The patio outside is a real suntrap and gives way to nature and the countryside. Upstairs to the first floor and its two bedrooms; a double with king size bed, and twin room with adult size bunk beds.

This floor is also home to the house bathroom with bath and shower over.

On the top floor is a second double bedroom with its beams, sloping ceiling and stunning view.

Holme Ground Cottage is the perfect home from home for nature lovers, animal lovers, walkers, explorers, foodies and those who simply want to chill.
