Rural barn conversion sleeping four guests, situated on the edge of Coniston Water, on the lower slopes of the Old Man of Coniston, and within walking distance of Coniston village centre.

This property is located on the owner’s small far, up a steep narrow hill in the picturesque Lake District National Park. It enjoys a fantastic location close to two of the area’s best-loved features: Coniston Water and The Old Man of Coniston, providing plenty of opportunity to enjoy scenic walks, challenging hikes, and a range of watersports, for which equipment can be hired from the nearby Coniston Boating Centre. For a more leisurely perspective of the lake, the beautifully restored steam yacht gondolas which depart from the town jetty are a fantastic way to spend a relaxing day on the water. Other attractions in or near to the village include The Ruskin Museum, the Go-Ape high ropes centre in Grizedale Forest, and Wray Castle.


This handsome stone barn is situated alongside several other properties on the owner’s farm and offers comfortable accommodation for four guests. On entering the cottage, guests will find a hallway, off from which there are two flights of stairs, one going up to the living area and the other going down to the bedrooms. Taking the stairs to the first floor, guests will come to the open-plan living space comprising a lounge/kitchen. The lounge area has a selection of seating enabling guests to sit back and enjoy the warmth of the flame-effect gas fire and perhaps watch a film on the TV/DVD. The kitchen area is located just behind the lounge and is equipped with an oven, hob, microwave, fridge, and dishwasher, whilst there are shared on-site laundry facilities for those who need them. The separate dining room, meanwhile, is a great place to enjoying leisurely breakfasts and family dinners. On the way back to the stairs, there is a cloakroom with WC. The bedrooms and bathroom with shower over bath and WC, are located on the lower-ground floor. The first bedroom is a restful double room with a low-level, cottage-style window, whilst the second is a tastefully decorated twin room.


Outside, there is a small seating area with a bench to the front of the property, providing a pleasant place to sit and enjoy the tranquil atmosphere. Heading through the courtyard, past the resident chickens, and on towards the meadows, guests will come to the edge of the farm, from where they can enjoy miles of scenic walks. There is parking provided for two cars.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

Perfect location if you're visiting for a walking holiday as there are footpaths right on your doorstep. Views of Coniston Water out of one window and Old Man of Coniston from another, perfect! The photos of the cottage don't do it justice, it is bigger than it looks! Note the road/drive up is very narrow and steep in places, we drove as little as Read morepossible. Hide

Absolutely wonderful home from home. I especially loved eating my dinner with a great view of lake Coniston, and being able to walk straight out from the house onto footpaths. The cottage was cosy, and had everything we needed for the week (plus one of the nicest bathrooms ever!)

Great view from dining room window of Coniston Water. Accommodation very spacious

A lovely cottage. Perfect for what we needed for our stay with everything provided. It is not a walk into the village. We drove every time! But there is free parking on the road at the bottom of the hill and you can easily walk to all the amenities once there. We went to all pubs in the centre of the village. Black Bull is old style, perfect for a Read morepint of locally brewed ale. Food is lovely in the yewtree but our favourite was by far and away the Crown Inn. With parking too for that drive down!

A very comfortable and well-equipped cottage in a lovely, peaceful setting. Due to the location (set into a hill), walking up to the property from the village and walking in the fields around the cottage could be quite challenging for some guests; access to a car to get into the village was essential, especially for grocery shopping. However, we haRead mored a fantastic week and would happily stay there again. Hide

Thank you so much we have had a super week. Amazing weather, great walks and some very nice meals top tips for pub meals Drunken Duck Inn & Blacksmiths Arms. Loved our cottage, very comfortably and the views are stunning. Going home with a happy, tired dog! Thank you.
