Perfect... just perfect
The cottage is in an idyllic location on the banks of Coniston and is perfect for launching boats, swimming and catching minnows. The cottage itself is much nicer and more spacious than the photos imply. I can?t imagine a better property in the Lakes for a memorable family holiday.

Holiday with family
Stayed here with my sister and brother in law. Fantastic cottage very spacious and dog friendly too. Lots of walks to do from the door. 15 mins drive to Tarn Hows. 5 mins to Coniston. Had a great week with some good weather. Will return soon.

A beautiful home from home
This house is stunning and very spacious, A lot of thought and care has gone into it. The decor, furnishings and quirky ornaments ooze quality and charm. The kitchen is huge and so well equipped. BUT a word of warning to dog ownwers, the garden is not secure. Down one side is a hedge, and my dogs only took 5 minutes to escape into the adjoining field. Thank goodness there were no sheep in it at the time or the consequences could have been bad. A couple of days later sheep were put in the field so I couldn't allow my dogs outside for the rest of the week. Children should also be supervised as there are slippery stone steps leading to a gate out onto the busy main road. The back garden down to the lake is fantastic and vital to dog owners for the first and last dog walks of the day, as there are no practical walks from the door due to the dangerous road with no footpath. TOP TIP...if you want to sleep in past 6am, sleep in the front bedroom, as the back bed is only a few feet from the road. But practicalities aside, overall my partner and I agree this is the nicest holiday rental we've ever stayed in, and we've stayed in a lot!

This bungalow is very, very comfortable. If I could afford to spend a year of my life here I definitely would.

Beautiful property. The peaceful location with it's own private jetty to Coniston Water was outstanding. Our children enjoyed pole fishing and sailing daily. A good location for walking.
