This is a traditional semi-detached barn conversion situated on the north-east tip of Coniston Water – a spectacular location. Stylish and comfortable, it's perfect for a wonderful holiday relaxing or enjoying the great outdoors.

Located on a small country estate, just above the shores of Coniston Water and at the heart of the Lake District, this semi-detached converted barn shares a courtyard with four other delightful holiday homes. With extensive shared gardens and grounds as well as direct access to the estate's private lake shore, this property makes an ideal base from which to enjoy a wonderful Lakeland 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. A short distance from the Western edge of Grizedale Forest, miles of walking and cycling trails are yours to explore. Enjoy your favourite water sports on magical Coniston Water where Donald Campbell made his water speed record attempts in the famous ‘Bluebird’. 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.

This holiday retreat offers a combination of style and comfort, coupled with an enviable position close to the lake and is equally suited to both those who want to relax and those looking for adventures. With its wooden beams, deep set windows and slate tiled downstairs flooring, this house has a taste of the traditional but is balanced with more contemporary styling, creating a very special home-from-home. From the courtyard the house opens, through the original arched barn entrance, into the stylish, spacious lounge - a room full of character with a TV and DVD player and an inglenook fireplace with wood burner; this is the perfect place to gather and relax especially after a long day exploring. Through glazed French windows to the left is the kitchen/diner which is roomy and well-equipped with electric cooker, ceramic hob, microwave, dishwasher, fridge, freezer and washing machine and makes a great sociable space for a relaxed cooking and dining experience. From the hallway there is a compact, tasteful ground floor shower room with walk-in shower WC and hand basin. The staircase leads to the first floor where there are two light, restful king-size bedrooms and one lovely twin room as well as a contemporary bathroom with over-bath shower, WC and washbasin.

Outside there is a sunny patio area, a great spot for al fresco dining and across the track from the property a lovely grassy paddock, ideal for family games. Beyond the courtyard, 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. If you want to bring your own sailing boat, there are also jetties for you to tie up to. Perfect!

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

A spacious, clean, comfortable and well located property in a quiet area of Coniston, ideally located to explore the surrounding area, whether that be walks from the property or driving out to other amazing areas in the Lake District. Would definitely stay here again.

Reviewed by Peter, 10th May 2019

We have been visiting Tent Lodge and the various other cottages on the complex for over 20 years. They are always equipped to a high standard, comfortable and of course in a perfect location. There is nowhere quite like the lake district and these cottages are the ideal base for exploring and/or relaxing - we will continue to keep coming back.
