  • Comfortably furnished split-level accommodation

Property code: LCC28

Gather friends and family together for a holiday amidst the charming villages and mountains of the South Lakes in this stylish stone property. Accommodating a group of eight across five bedrooms, the living areas are large enough for you to all comfortably spend time together. You’ll never be bored here, as there are walks straight from the doorstep, and the house boasts a self-contained games room for leisurely days spent indoors. Enjoy a lunch or special sit-down dinner in Coniston (1.5 miles), find out more about the area at tourist information, and shop for gifts and food supplies.

 

Inside, features including exposed beams, elegantly designed wooden furniture, and a stone surround for the lounge’s wood burner give this property a feeling of traditional country grandeur. There are several sets of internal steps, from the dining room down to the lounge, as well as down to the lower-ground floor bedrooms. Mud-splashed clothes damp from a lakeside stroll can go straight into the laundry room, where the handy washing machine and tumble dryer will take care of them. At the heart of the house is the dining room. Cook a tasty dinner through in the kitchen, with space for extra hands to help you prepare ingredients on the long worktop. After eating, and toasting the chef, cross over to the games room for a fun evening together. It’s just opposite the main house, and everyone can happily settle down. Hold a pool tournament, and while it’s someone else’s turn you can be curled up on the sofa chatting, grabbing a drink from the fridge, or competing over a board game in front of the wood burner. Unwind with a film night in the house lounge, then head to one of the property’s bedrooms, each uniquely decorated with their own colour scheme. Breakfast alfresco on the patio in front of the games room and admire the sweeping landscape over cups of tea and warmed-up croissants.

Lovely property in good location. Amazing master bedroom! Garden space mostly on a slope. Plenty of room for running around, but not so good for ball games.

What a fantastic place to stay. The property itself-superb. The views-fantastic. The location-perfect. This was everything we wanted and more from our choice of holiday home, we had a mixed party of adults/children/couples/singles and the property was able to accommodate all of us. The property is well equipped with any utensils you might need for Read morea self catering dinner in, or the village of Coniston with many dinner choices is just a short walk away. Would definitely look to stay here again. Hide
