  • Comfortably furnished split-level accommodation
  • A separate games room with pool table and indoor and outdoor seating area
Property code: LCC28

Thoughtfully furnished 16th century barn conversion property sleeping eight guests, offering breath-taking views to Coniston Water from the terraced garden and the cottage itself.

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 terrace in front of the games room and admire the sweeping landscape over cups of tea and warmed-up croissants.

Amazing location and cottage overall. We had 4 people in our group and this worked well as its a big place. Lots of great walking options from the cottage. Games room is a nice touch too. We cooked each night and found the kitchen equipment a bit lacking and a bit tired in places but overall it was very good. For larger groups note there is only 1 Read moretv in the living room and kitchen may be a struggle for cooking for 8. Hide

Brilliant location and the cottage was superb! Recycling instructions should be clearer as main site is accessible by a short drive to Coniston. The cottage is close to a few decent treks for families and a few for more seasoned trekkers. Highly recommend in any season! Thank you for hosting us!

A beautiful house overlooking Coniston Water. Very spacious, comfortable seating, mostly well equipped and spotlessly clean. Wonderful for a group or family, in an incredible location for exploring the southern Lakes, yet out of the busy tourist areas. Recommended!

This is a fantastic location for relaxation, taking in the impressive Lakeland views and gives great access to Coniston Water for kayaking and wild swimming. All three generations of our family met their holiday needs and the cottage has all the space needed to share time together and as individuals through the outhouse and amazing gardens.

the cottage and location are both excellent. It is fully equipped for family use with all the essentials in spades. Safe areas for outdoor play and fabulous views add to the holiday. The pool table came in very useful for the Lakes weather and our younger guests even switched off their tablets and Ipads to play

We loved the layout of the cottage for our large party (8 adults plus baby), and it was very comfortably furnished. We enjoyed views of the lake and Old Man Coniston, and the snooker room was a great bonus in a week of bad weather. A good location too - easy reach of Ambleside and Windermere, and lots of great walks.
