    “The cottage is lovely and we had a great holiday - lakeside jetty fantastic for early morning canoeing & the meadow was great for the dogs to run and play (although be aware this is across a quiet road from the cottage).”

    Plenty of good walks on the doorstep by the lakeside and on Torver common. Pleasant outdoor dining space helped us make the most of the amazing weather we got. Cottage was well equipped and rooms especially bathrooms were very luxurious. Only negative for us was that this was advertised as a pet friendly property, however on arrival the rear lawn is no longer there - all stone now and there was a notice saying dogs not allowed in lounge - bedrooms I expect to be a no-go, but the lounge is the ...

    Plenty of good walks on the doorstep by the lakeside and on Torver common. Pleasant outdoor dining space helped us make the most of the amazing weather we got. Cottage was well equipped and rooms especially bathrooms were very luxurious. Only negative for us was that this was advertised as a pet friendly property, however on arrival the rear lawn is no longer there - all stone now and there was a notice saying dogs not allowed in lounge - bedrooms I expect to be a no-go, but the lounge is the only place to relax in the evening and no one wants to be separated from their pets so only alternative is to stay in the kitchen or be outside. Do think this should have appeared on the property description. Also an outside hose pipe for washing down dogs, muddy boots and canoes would have been useful - there were some outside taps but limited to what you can reach from them. This didn’t spoil our holiday but think worth pointing out for other potential dog owners.

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.
