This period property is both charming and stylish, making it the perfect venue for a romantic getaway for two.

Located on the privately owned Atkinson Ground Estate, this property enjoys a peaceful and unspoilt setting. The northeast head of Coniston Water is within easy reach, offering wonderful walks and spectacular scenery. Rugged mountain ranges are ideal for adventurous walkers, though the local area offers plenty for all abilities. After a long day on foot, a visit to the nearby microbrewery and popular pubs are a must, while the local shops are ideal for stocking up on supplies for your stay.

 A charming oak front door opens into an open-plan kitchen/diner, which boasts a delightful blend of traditional exposed beams and contemporary appliances. From here, stairs lead up to the warm and welcoming sitting room with its wood burner, exposed beam, comfortable sofa and TV, perfect for those romantic evenings in. A further stairway takes you up to the king-size bedroom, which has been tastefully decorated in neutral tones and features a decorative fireplace, slanted ceiling and delightful window seat. The contemporary bathroom next door boasts a fabulous whirlpool bath for soothing those achy feet at the end of the day.

Outside a small patio area sits to the front of the cottage, providing a peaceful spot for a summer BBQ or al fresco drink.

Overall the time in the property was really nice. Lovely location a little secluded but we had a car. Cottage itself was fantastic.

Lovely cosy cottage within a 25 minute walk of coniston village. Arrived late in cold wet weather so it was lovely when we opened the door into a warm and inviting kitchen with a lovely hamper of local handmade fudge and biscuits to welcome us. The cottage has everything you need and is very tastefully decorated. The temperature of all the rooms isRead more perfect and the bed is super comfy! What more could you want! Hide

Beautiful little cottage in a great location Very romantic and cosy for a couple to hideaway Easy and quick drive into town for supplies

Reviewed by Robert 13th September 2019

Very comfortable and warm cottage, in the perfect location for our walking and swimming plans. Low beams are characterful so beware if you are tall. Parking space very limited, only half the width of a car fits onto the kerb, the rest sticks out into a narrow lane. Not suitable for anyone with a large car or van.

Very pretty, well appointed one bedroom cottage on the quieter side of Lake Coniston. Beautifully decorated and very cosy . Easy drive into Coniston village with plenty of coffee houses and pubs to sample. Highly recommended.

This is a lovely cottage for 2 people & dog. The location is very good for walks etc. Would advise a car for longer journeys to Ambleside, Grasmere etc. Car parking space very small and worried about any cars driving past and hitting it (that didn't happen however). Great walk from Monk Coniston up to Tarn Hows. Coniston is a 20 minute walk away wiRead moreth a good selection of pubs. Hide

A delightful cottage with some lovely features and was a joy to spend time in. A very comfortable bed, lounge and well equipped kitchen.we loved being able to walk to Brantwood (1.2 miles away) which is well worth a visit including the lovely cafe there. We walked lots- down to the village (2 miles) where the nice coffee shops were a great reward! Read moreWe walked to Tarn Hows. The rain did not deter us from enjoying this lovely part of the Lake District. Hide

Superb little cottage. Great location for walks. My only suggestion would be for tea/coffee/milk to be there for a drink upon arriving also perhaps a few logs for log burner.

Reviewed by Paula 19th October 2018

Amazing cottage in a great location. Superbly equipped in all regards didnt need to use the car once during our 7 night stay! Very cosy and romantic would definitely stay again. Our only request would be to fix the noise issues coming from the games room (pool table) in the adjoining farmhouse cottage.
