Location description from owner

The Duddon Valley region

Coniston is situated in the southern area of the lake district and is an area of outstanding natural beauty with stunning mountain scenery and fresh lakes and rivers. While the central area, around Windermere and Ambleside attract most of the visitors, the south- western peninsula remains more quiet but equally beautiful.

From the cottage, a private footpath takes you down a private beach (shared with two other cottages) great for swimming, bbq's, picnics and boating. Peel Island, aka Wild Cat Island, where Arthur Ransome's Swallow's and Amazon's was filmed can be seen from the shore and makes a great boating destination! A footpath hugs the shore-line and can be followed all the way to Coniston village where the Blue-bird Cafe makes a tempting refreshment and ice-cream stop.

Coniston village and the surrounding area of Torver and Water Yeat offer a great choice of pubs serving real ales and home-cooked food as well as numerous cafes offering Wifi. There are ample places to hire mountain bikes, rowing/sailing boats, canoes or to try your hand at pony treking.

The stunning, historic house and gardens at Brantwood overlooking Coniston water is home to the famous poet and artist, John Ruskin and both Brantwood and the John Ruskin museum in Coniston are well worth a visit. The Victorian steam Yacht gondola is a fantastic way to see the lake and can be caught or alighted from Conston, Brantwood or Monk Coniston.

Grizedale forest with cycling trails, sculpture walks, adventure play ground, 'Go Ape' tree top trail, orienteering routes and fabulous cafe is only 9 miles (15 km) away and great for cyclists and families. Similarly, the picturesque, quaint village of Hawshead and the beautiful and serene Tarn Hows are both under 10 miles (15km) from the cottage and Beatrix Potter's farmhouse home at Far Sawrey, only a few miles further. Ambleside (12 miles/20km), Grasmere (13 miles/21km) and Bowness (18 miles/29km) are all an approximate half hour's drive.

Larger supermarkets, cinemas, swimming pools and train station can all be found in Ulverston another picturesque market town, 15 minutes drive away (9 miles /15km).

Coniston

The Lake District National Park is England's largest National park, home to Scafell Pike, it's highest mountain, deep cut, glacial lakes, awe inspiring landscapes and picture postcard villages. Not to mention, great traditional pubs, historic houses and castles, lush, green valleys, fells and forests all within an area of 885 square miles. With many areas easily accessible by road, Coniston offers a superb base for touring and experiencing all that The Lake District has to offer.

“Cosy and comfortable”

Reviewed 12 Oct 2016

I've stayed in the cottage before but this time it was less enjoyable. It's still comfortable and cosy and well equipped, as well as nicely situated out of the way. When we arrived, however, there was no firewood (as stated in the particulars). Obviously, we therefore didn't replace it as there was nothing to replace. There was also no hairdryer. We had a problem with sheep in the garden which meant we couldn't go in it or down to the water with our dog, which was disappointing as it was one of the main reasons for choosing the cottage. Obviously, that's outside the owner's control but there was no way of knowing who we should contact to come and collect them and they remained in situ for the whole of our stay. Apart from that, it was very clean, comfortable and well equipped and we would probably stay again. Although I think the sheep issue would make me think twice now.
