The Cumbria/Lake District
'Lakeland is exquisitely beautiful. The Southern fells in particular just happen to be a bit of heaven fallen upon the Earth' - A Wainwright.
Nature fashions the finest of architecture, with impressive mountains, majestic rock spires, steep passes, beautiful lakes, lonely tarns, gushing waterfalls, lush forests and breath-taking scenery, the southern fells of the Lake District await you.
Within 30 mins from J36 M6, you'll be transported to the heart of South Lakeland. Apart from the inspiring lakes and mountains, there are fantastic beaches within easy reach, and opportunities to spot wildlife and flora.
Coniston and the immediate area hosts a half marathon, traditional country fair, speed records week (Coniston Water), World rally car stages and Tour of Britain (Cumbria cycling stages) to mention but a few.
Ulverston hosts regular market town events, including a Dickensian Festival towards Christmas.
We hope that you decide to stay with us and find out more about what's on offer from this stunning part of England.
Torver, in the shadow of 'Coniston Old Man', nestles a pretty community based hamlet approx. 2 miles from Coniston.
With easy access to the southern fells of the Lake District, it is quiet enough to be away from the main tourist hub, yet a thriving vibrancy exists with stunning scenery and activities on your doorstep.
With two great pubs (including the famous Wilson Arms with weekly quiz) and a local village deli, you can dine with locals and tourists alike, enjoying award-winning real ales, open log-fires and banter with local characters and friendly, welcoming staff, you'll soon feel part of the Torver family.
A wealth of activities from gentle walks to rock-climbing, lake cruises to gorge scrambling can be enjoyed. Torver Country Fair is usually mid August annually, and with vintage motor cycle gatherings, charity tractor runs and other events popping up through the year, you may just enjoy something uniquely lakeland. There is horse-riding within 5 mins walk and in Coniston there are to shops, cafe's, museums, galleries, and boat hire from the boating centre .
Grizedale Forest hosts world rally stages, the north-face mountain bike trail, fantastic walks and tree-top adventures.
It is a 15 minute walk down to Coniston Water (Swallows and Amazons inspiration and Donald Campbell's speed record attempt), or 45 minute off-road walk down to Coniston. Alternatively, local bus stops within 150 metres can take you down to Coniston, home to the famous 'Bluebird' bitter from Coniston Brewing Company, or to Ulverston, a charming market town, home to the Laurel and Hardy museum, with plenty going on throughout the year.
With Ambleside/Windermere, Hawkshead, Ulverston and Sawrey (Beatrix Potter country) a mere 15 mins , and Bowness approx. 20 mins by car, there are plenty of reasons to explore the wider area too.
All in all, Torver is an ideal base for your self-catering lake district holiday and we look forward to welcoming you to stay.

"Amazing place... amazing stay...!!!"
Ash Gill Cottage is set in a beautiful, picturesque location. It is in close proximity to Coniston and Hawkshead and is in walking distance (100 yards) to the Wilson Arms (amazing food). The cottage… More
Thank you for taking the time to review your stay with us last Nov and for grading us with 5 stars - wow, we're delighted.
It is comforting to know that you found the house 'homely, relaxing and tastefully decorated' and we particularly wanted to install the log burner, making the house 'cosy'.
It is very handy having such a wonderfully popular hostelry on our doorstep too, eat-in or dine out, the choice is yours, and of course, we are looking forward to welcoming you back again in June.

"Fabulous cottage, fabulous location!"
Arrived late on a Friday night after a long journey with two young children, was fabulous to be able to just walk in to a home from home. Every detail in the house has been thought through and execute… More
Thank you so much for taking the time to write such a lovely, glowing first review for us, and of course we're honoured to be awarded 5 stars - a 'home from home' is exactly what we strive to achieve for our guests.
We are thrilled with your comments, particularly the 'executed beautifully' with regards to detail and we worked particularly hard to achieve the 'perfect kitchen', however, with a fab local pub only 2 mins walk away, and no need to drive or indeed cook, we completely understand why the 'perfect kitchen' didn't get used.
We're so pleased that you enjoyed your stay last June and we look forward to welcoming you back later this year.
Bev and Pete.
