This small but perfectly formed cottage is perfect for two but works equally well if you want to bring the children. From the garden, step into the cosy lounge, which offers a plump sofa and comfy armchair to sink into after a long day of exploring the local area. Traditional deep set windows let natural light spill into the room and offer views of the garden, lake and mountains.

We had a fabulous week in this small character cottage which was perfect for the two of us. It's tastefully furnished and has everything you need but it's the location that's the best bit. Stunning views from your private table over Coniston Water with Old Man of Coniston in the background. Owner is brilliant too - very chatty and helpful. We had aRead more fabulous week and there's lots to do in the area too. Recommend Coniston Museum, Hill Top, Tarn Hows, Gunners How, Bowness & Brantwood House. Hide

What a stunning place! A gorgeous little cottage situated on an elevated position overlooking Coniston water - whats not to love? The cottage was quaint but perfectly big enough for my other half and I for the week, and was very homely and comfortable. The addition of the private jetties/beach area was simply the icing on the cake. I have to say, tRead morehis was all really a little slice of paradise and is somewhere I definitely want to visit again! Hide

One of the best views in the Lake District! And you can see it from your bed (double room), the sitting room as well as the dedicated table on the lawn. Richard and Wendy (owners) very welcoming. We absolutely loved this cottage. Ideal for a couple or family with small children, not 2 couples.

Fabulous little place right on the water with amazing views, giving the isolation feeling we wanted. Richard and Wendy were very welcoming and attentive. The cottage had everything we needed and more, perfect for our 1 yr old and we could get cozy in front of the log burner in the evening

We stayed at Tent Lodge Cottage to celebrate our 40th wedding anniversary. It did not disappoint, we had a wonderful time and were sad to leave. Our hosts, Richard and Wendy were just lovely people and very welcoming. The position of this cottage is superb, views are amazing. Highly recommend a stay here and would definitely go back, thank you.
