With extensive shared gardens and grounds and direct access to the estates private lake shore Tent Lodge Cottage makes an ideal base from which to enjoy a wonderful holiday. This spectacular area has welcomed and inspired many renowned guests including Beatrix Potter and Arthur Ransome (author of ‘Swallows and Amazons’), Tennyson, the Victorian Poet Laureate and the painter William Turner. The awe-inspiring scenery of idyllic Coniston Water with its backdrop of the rugged Coniston Old Man mountain range will make any stay extra special. A real treat for the adventurous, this superb holiday home is ideally placed for all the attractions and outdoor activities on offer in this glorious corner of the UK but is equally perfect for those who just want to soak up the peace and quiet and relax.

Coniston village is just over a mile away and offers a range of outdoor activity providers, shops, pubs, cafes and a highly rated Bistro. The Boating Centre is a great place from which to hire boats, take boat trips on the famous Gondola (a Victorian steam yacht) and Launches or just simply feed the ducks and enjoy an ice cream.

Historically an 18th century stable, this cottage has been sympathetically modernised to offer a unique retreat. Through the stable door from the courtyard you step into the open-plan lounge, kitchen and dining area. Contemporary, stylish and airy yet also benefitting from being able to curl up, this space is the ultimate for sociable and practical living. The sleek kitchen area offers an electric oven and ceramic hob, fridge/freezer, microwave and dishwasher. The living area boasts comfy sofas a TV, DVD player and a woodburning stove. This wonderful property makes a great holiday home from home perfect for spending time together and relaxing after a long day exploring.

Outside, Tent Lodge Cottage enjoys its own sunny, enclosed shared small walled garden, a great spot for alfresco dining or a refreshing drink. Beyond the garden idyllic Coniston Water will tempt you through the grounds and down to the estate’s private lake shore area which is shared with other properties on the estate - this is the place for picnics, paddling and fishing for tiddlers and if you want to bring your own sailing boat, there are jetties to tie up to.

I rarely use 5stars as I usually think it has to be perfect for that. So to use 5 stars shows how much we thought of our cottage. Every bit of kitchen equipment you need. Clean and comfy downstairs and upstairs. We had dreadful weather but perfect to come back to log burner, comfy sofas and clothes dryer by the fire too!! Being able to walk to, swiRead morem in and play by the lake was great too. The owners were lovely. Very friendly and helpful. Perfect stay! 5 Stars indeed! Hide

Excellent location, nice and quiet as long as the guests in the other cottages are not rowdy! Lake at the bottom of the field behind the property. The cottage had everything we needed including weighing scales and a garlic crusher. The owner came in and plunged the plugholes very soon after we reported slow drainage.
