    The kitchen cupboards had definitely not been wiped out for some time. The front door was filthy. Dishwasher was out of action, we were not informed we would have no dishwasher, something that is actually very important when you're on holiday. The TV did not work in the bedroom. We did mention this but it was never resolved. One morning we had no heating or hot water, the boiler had tripped. Obviously this can happen to anyone but no apology was made for the inconvenience. I imagine the cottage was quite beautiful when first decorated but it is now tired and in need of a freshen up. Good points - the hot tub. Lovely.

The property

A tasteful and stylish ground floor apartment, situated at the foot of The Old Man of Coniston and close to Coniston Water in the rural hamlet of Torver.

Saddlebeck offers idyllic holiday accommodation that is charming and contemporary.

The furnishings replicate the setting of the apartment, with character features such as slate floors and slabs used in the walk-in shower room, which reflect the contours of the surrounding hills.

There is also a Belfast sink in the kitchen and a woodburner in the sitting area, and the super king-size bedroom can be converted to offer twin beds for convenience.

The use of stunning velvet fabrics and woollen textiles in the soft furnishings all reflect the thought and quality involved in presenting this apartment.

The apartment is located next to the owner's well-known popular local inn, and is below a second holiday apartment, and is sure to please couples wishing to explore this outstanding area.

After a day exploring the area, return and enjoy the cosiness of the woodburner, or take a refreshing drink in the outdoor patio space, sit with a glass of wine or sink into the bubbles of the hot tub as the sun sets to reveal a romantic, star-filled sky, soaking up the tranquillity of the region.

Hikers will love the trails from the door, with the Walna Scar pass winding upwards towards the Old Man, Dow Crag and Swirl How.

Head out onto peaceful Coniston Water, with boating facilities available, or simply enjoy a waterside stroll.

Explore the beautiful country estate of Brantwood, home to the poet John Ruskin.

Or sample the gingerbread at Grasmere, delicious and unique, with the ancient recipe a closely-guarded secret locked away in the local bank!

At the end of a day of exploration and activity, enjoy the welcoming comfort of Saddleback - a stunning Lakeland holiday apartment.

About the location


Coniston 2 miles.

The small hamlet of Torver peacefully rests amidst some of the Lake District's most beautiful scenery and provides a welcoming 14th century inn and a 19th century church, built on the site of an ancient chapel. Torver has 2 fantastic pubs on offer, so you will be spoilt for choice for great food. Renowned as one of Wordsworth's favourite haunts, today it’s known locally as a starting point for exploring the local fells and the Duddon Valley and offers a superb base for exploring nearby Hawkshead, Ambleside and Windermere. Excellent walking, mountain biking, climbing and watersports opportunities are available locally on Coniston Old Man and Wetherlam and the lovely woodland trails at Grizedale Forest. Enjoy a leisurely cruise on the beautiful Gondola steam yacht, visit the award-winning village of Hawkshead with its fantastic Beatrix Potter Gallery, discover Tarn Hows, one of the most visited beauty spots in the country or indulge in a spot of serene fishing on Esthwaite Water. A first class holiday location at any time of the year.
