    “The cottage is lovely with long green garden to walk down to lake, perfect for my little Westies.”

    The cottage had a nice feel and very clean comfortable beds. Very spacious for cottage for 6 adults. Only complains we would have is the towels in bathrooms were a bit worn out (one had holes in it) and no toilet roll holders. There were not enough plug sockets in twin middle bedroom and it would have been nice to have hand soap in all bathrooms not just at kitchen sink. Our 70 & 80 year old parents said that hand rails in shower en-suite would have been good when coming out of shower. ...

Our 70 & 80 year old parents said that hand rails in shower en-suite would have been good when coming out of shower. Water was lovely and hot and whole house set at perfect temperature.Outside space around property is good and nice seating areas with comfortable garden chairs, draw back is the road behind can be a bit noisy especially from motorbikes. I would still highly recommend the cottage.

The property

Beautifully appointed, Riverside Cottage is a rare gem set in breathtaking surroundings overlooking Torver Beck, with its own pedestrian bridge leading to a private jetty and beach.

The detached house, gardens and surroundings are an absolute delight and provide a heady mix of luxury and beauty.

All three bedrooms have super king-size beds, two of which can be cleverly converted into two single beds on request, and with two en-suites and a house bathroom, queues are a thing of the past!

Outside there is a choice of peaceful patios, including a charming covered seating area adorned with fairy lights.

What is really magical about Riverside Cottage is it has its very own pedestrian bridge which crosses Torver Beck to an enormous expanse of green leading to Coniston Water.

You can while away the hours in the summer house, or dangle your feet over the water on the private jetty.

In such stunning surroundings, it is very easy to see how our Lakeland poets were so inspired!

Just over a mile away is a footpath leading to The Old Man of Coniston which at 2635 feet is not quite a Munro, but deserves its place in the great Cumbrian fells.

On a fine day the views from the top are so intoxicating they should be experienced by everyone.

Arthur Ransome based his book ‘Swallows and Amazons’ on Coniston Water, and it is fun trying to discover the locations featured in the book.

There is boat hire available, as well as sailing courses and the steam yacht Gondola, which offers an opulent sail with a difference.

Riverside Cottage is addictive and one visit will not be enough.

About the location

TORVER

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.
