Beautiful location but you have to be fit to make it to the village and back up 2 very steep hills. Lovely cottage that Matt and his wife are going to make even better.

Gorgeous cottage. Atmosphere was cosy and welcoming. Views of the lake and mountain. We lit the fire one eve which was lovely. New owners were lovely. Only just taken over so I suspect they'll be checking reviews to make improvements where needed. Don't get me wrong. It wasn't dirty just needs a spring clean to freshen it up.

Good location overlooking lake Coniston however the 15 min walk is up a very steep hill. Car access is a pain by anything bigger than a fiat 500. Our Volvo estate car was a challenge to get in and out. Property in real need of maintenance, renovation and a good clean. Wi-fi hotspot is very weak so pretty useless down stairs. Overall the property waRead mores acceptable but we didnt feel good value for money given the other properties available in the Lake District. Hide

This was a lovely cottage in a wonderful, secluded location, with direct access up onto the Coniston Old Man footpaths. Although it was simply furnished, it was cosy, comfortable and clean and had everything we needed. The access road is narrow and steep, but this didnt present any difficulties, and we liked being away from the village.

perfect location for great walks right on the doorstep, beautiful scenery. very peaceful location. the driveway to property is very steep, it would be very hard (impossible?) to get there in icy/snowy conditions - we were lucky with the weather so no problems. lovely cosy evenings with the log fire, kitchen had everything we needed. 20 min walk intRead moreo the village of Coniston, nice place with quite a few good pubs, ideal after a long walk, and not too busy which was nice. we had a great stay!

We had a lovely week at heathwaite farm. Despite the cold weather we were kept warm and comfortable. Some of the equipment was a little basic for self catering for a week. Stairs were a little tricky for my elderly mother. But great location, lovely views, would recommend.

You can see the cottage has not had any investment lately, it needs a big deep clean as cobwebs everywhere, new bathroom suite, oven gloves to be supplied, internet needs to be better, beds need a new mattress, TV did not get a signal. The heating was excellent and location was brilliant.

A lovely comfy farmhouse cottage, we really enjoyed our stay there. Access via narrow twisty lanes, through 2 gates via sheep, makes for a very rural & peaceful time! Logs provided - a lovely bonus. View of lake Coniston limited from this particular cottage but fabulous views around the area. If arriving late, best to take any food & drink you may Read moreneed. Hide

Beautiful cottage in ideal location. Bit of a steep narrow road to farm but worth the effort! We had lovely weather so walked each day without having to use the car. About 20 mins walk into Coniston & a number of good pubs. Even our nearly teenager had a great time!
