This delightful Grade II listed cottage is in a lovely peaceful location at the foot of the fell and only a few minutes walk from the village where there are shops and a good selection of pubs and other places to eat and drink.
The Black Bull is famed for its micro brewery, good food and award winning beers which are well worth sampling.
There is also an excellent cafe at the boating centre where cruises on the lake can be booked and motor or rowing boats hired and if you like swimming or just messing about by the water, which is always popular with children, there are plenty of lovely beaches round the lake.
The cottage is ideally situated for fell walkers. A public footpath by the side of the cottage gives access to the Coniston, Yewdale and Furness fells and is one of the starting points for some of the more demanding high level walks in the area which include the Old Man of Coniston, Swirl How and Wetherlam. The cottage looks out across a rural scene towards Grizedale Forest.
For the less energetic there are numerous low level walks and an abundance of visitor attractions within easy travelling distance. Tarn Hows, a classic beauty spot near Coniston, is within easy walking distance.
The cottage is centrally heated – by gas.
Sitting room / diner with open fire, comfortable seating, TV / DVD and Broadband / WiFi.
2 bedrooms each with a double bed.
2 small bedrooms each with a single bed.
Although the cottage sleeps 6 we feel it is only suitable for 5 adults as the sitting room / diner and kitchen are both small. If, however, you require accommodation for 6 you should be able to manage if there are children in your party.
Fitted kitchen (cooking by electricity) with microwave. There is a freezer compartment in the fridge.
There is a double length mixer shower in the bathroom. Hot water is on demand – not stored. The towel rail is heated by the central heating system but can be switched on electrically if needed.
Coniston, with its backdrop of the Old Man of Coniston and its proximity to the lake, is an ideal base for a holiday in the Lake District and if you decide to book we have every confidence that you will enjoy your stay.
There is a small paved sitting out area at the front of the cottage and a lockable outhouse for bicycles – or anything else.
We provide a permit to park one car in the parking area on the opposite side of the lane to the cottage. If you have a second car it would need to be parked on the road in front of the cottage.
