The cottage is perched on the hillside with majestic views over Coniston water, the village and down the valley towards Hellvelyn. Being just a couple of minutes walk from the centre of the village it is both peaceful and convenient. It is an ideal base for walkers; the end of the lane joins the route up to the Old Man of Coniston, and there are a wide variety of walks for all levels from the door.
The Sun Inn, with open fire, is at the end of the lane. Please note that the lane is steep.
The traditional slate cottage is lovingly furnished and centrally-heated. It was once the signalman's cottage of the old Victrian railway. Having been completely renovated a few years ago, it sleeps six/eight and is ideal for one or two families. On the ground floor there is a cosy lounge (TV, DVD, Sky box, open fire), beautiful dining room with large farmhouse table and wood burning stove, well appointed kitchen (electric double oven, gas hob, dishwasher and washing machine, large new fridge freezer), toilet and wet-room shower within the enclosed yard. On the first floor there is a master bedroom with king size bed, a family bathroom with w/c, bath and over-bath shower, and a further bedroom with full-sized adult bunk beds. The second floor has recently been re-converted to include a double bedded room with the same amazing view, a beamed twin room, and a toilet with wash basin. The cottage has an abundance of hot water - lovely after a day out in the lakes!
Outside there is a large garden to the side of the house with the same amazing views. There is a pic-nic table and fire pit there. In addition there are two parking spaces.
Please be aware though that the cottage is on a narrow lane, accessed via a steep hill.
Coniston village hosts a variety of pubs, a local Co-op, Spar and other local shops.
The photos don't really do the cottage justice - we'll be getting some better ones taken soon! Its a wonderful cottage, a quiet location and a great place from which to explore the lakes.
