  • Charming character cottage in the heart of the Lake District
  • Situated in a peaceful countryside location close to Coniston Water
  • Beautifully furnished and decorated inside
Property code: LCC59

This period property is both charming and stylish, making it the perfect venue for a romantic getaway for two.

Located on the privately owned Atkinson Ground Estate, this property enjoys a peaceful and unspoilt setting. The northeast head of Coniston Water is within easy reach, offering wonderful walks and spectacular scenery. Rugged mountain ranges are ideal for adventurous walkers, though the local area offers plenty for all abilities. After a long day on foot, a visit to the nearby microbrewery and popular pubs are a must, while the local shops are ideal for stocking up on supplies for your stay.

 A charming oak front door opens into an open-plan kitchen/diner, which boasts a delightful blend of traditional exposed beams and contemporary appliances. From here, stairs lead up to the warm and welcoming sitting room with its wood burner, exposed beam, comfortable sofa and TV, perfect for those romantic evenings in. A further stairway takes you up to the king-size bedroom, which has been tastefully decorated in neutral tones and features a decorative fireplace, slanted ceiling and delightful window seat. The contemporary bathroom next door boasts a fabulous whirlpool bath for soothing those achy feet at the end of the day.

Outside a small patio area sits to the front of the cottage, providing a peaceful spot for a summer BBQ or al fresco drink.

Very cosy cottage. The weather was wet for most of the week so the wood-burning stove was a real bonus! There are walks from the cottage & plenty to explore in the surrounding area.

We were very pleased with with all aspects of the cottage and had a wonderful stay. However the television was problematical throughout our stay with constant loss of signal which was frustrating. Other than that we would highly recommend it. From previous reviews I was a little concerned about parking, but it was not a problem for our Yeti which iRead mores not a small car, I would recommend not parking to close to bin porch so that you are opposite the small pull in.

Perfect location, had everything you could need! Very lovely cottage with comfortable bed, good shower and such a peaceful location, would definitely come back! There isnt anywhere to let the dog off the lead safely outside of the cottage bar a very small concrete area due to the other properties being private but there are grassy verges on the roaRead mored. Can get quite warm due to the heating not turning off, so imagine its nice and cosy in the winter months. Will be returning :) Hide

This cottage is beautiful. Comfortable furniture and bed, very well equipped, and in a beautiful location above Coniston. There is a path, which leads down towards the village, through woodland and meadows and which is accessed through a gate about 300m up the road from the cottage, but there are some deep steps which some may find challenging. We Read moretook our smaller car because parking by the cottage is quite tight, but it was also a bonus on narrow, twisty lanes. The view is spectacular. Hide

The cottage is clean,warm and comfortable and well equipped. The welcome pack and cleaning pack were very useful. Parking is very tight even for a small or medium car and our dog had to be excercised off the property but There are plenty of walks in the vicinity and we had a lovely holiday and perfect autumnal weather.

Beautiful little cottage. The kitchen is well equipped, the bed is very comfy and there is a separate, cosy living room, which includes a larger than average TV and a lovely log burner (logs were included). Great location, with stunning views down to the lake (10 minute walk). We recommend a trip to nearby Brantwood House & gardens, which has a lovRead moreely tearoom with amazing views, and is an easy 20 minute stroll from the cottage. Perfect for Grizedale Forest and The Old Man. Hide

The Dairy is a lovely, well-situated and well-equipped cottage, and really spacious compared with other 1-bedroom options. We were glad we'd taken our small car though, given the car parking (half-) bay is so tight...

A beautiful cottage with a brilliant view of the mountains beside Coniston Lake. We really appreciated the welcome pack left for us and found the cottage to be very comfy and perfect for our stay.

The cottage is beautiful and it is based in a great location. Only 10 min walk to the lake. But there were a few things which I would have expected better for the price paid: - the allocated parking space is along the main road and most of the car will be on the road. Something to consider for larger vehicles. Also there is nowhere to reverse on thRead moree road so we had to drive a bit further to be able to park. - no small logs,lighter provided for the log burner so we couldnt use it - poor wifi Hide
