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!

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.
Mrs Hutson

Had a lovely stay in this beautiful well equipped bungalow, it was much larger than we imagined which was ideal as we were two families with a small infant. The views from the lake were stunning and we enjoyed having a drink down there just watching the wildlife. An ideal base to explore the Lake District and we certainly covered a lot in our week there.
Mrs Ruddock

We loved everything; the house, the close proximity to the lake. The owner was very helpful and the house was well equipped. We loved the big kitchen to sit in, the AGA cooker. There was loads of hot water, great showers and the option of a bath. We just loved it!
Mrs Hughes

A perfect cottage, in a perfect location. We would highly recommend this beautiful place for a getaway of total relaxation and luxurious comfort.
