Overview

About the property

A spacious house with lounge & dining rm 2 king size &1 twin bed & 2 bathrooms

A turn of the century house with a private garden located in the centre of Coniston, 2 minutes stroll from village shops, pubs, and restaurants.

A short walk to the shores of Coniston Water and a stones throw from the fells and footpaths. Views of the Old Man and Yewdale Crags from the house and garden are inspiring.

The whole house has been renovated and furnished to a high standard with quality fixtures and fittings. Throughout the house there is some beautiful photography provided by a family friend, David Bretnall.(www.db-photo.com).

There is a unique and stunning piece of artisan leaded glass work in the lounge depicting Coniston Water and Fells, this was designed and crafted by Sarah Lace a friend and neighbour (Sarah does commissions if you have an idea for a unique piece of glass)

Set out over three floors there is a lounge a separate dining room, fully fitted new kitchen, 2 king size bedrooms & a twin bedroom, a bathroom and shower room.

The kitchen has a Bosch cooker and hob, Zannusi fridge freezer and Neff dishwasher.

In the lounge the are 2 sumptuous Bouyant sofas to sink into after a day on the fells and a Stovax log burning stove on a beautiful green slate hearth to keep you cosy in the evening.

The two large double bedrooms both have stunning oak beds and very comfortable pocket sprung mattresses. The master bedroom on the top floor has oak chest of drawers and matching bedside cabinets with drawers. There's a built in/walk in wardrobe The twin bedroom at the rear of the house has 2 modern full size single beds with quality mattresses, pine wardrobe, with drawers and matching bedside cabinet and a view of Coniston Old Man to wake up to.

The front double room on the first floor also has a beautiful oak king size bed a classy period vaneered double wardrobe and chest of drawers both with decorative inlays, one of the bedside cabinets is lovely grainy pitch pine

On the top floor there is a fully tiled family bathroom with a 800mm wide bath, mira mixer shower over, his and hers basins and a wc.

We also have a ground floor shower room with large enclosure, wc and full size basin. This is decorated with beautiful travertine tiling.

To the rear there is an enclosed yard paved with local stone and across the small private lane is the garden and garage.

The garden is mainly lawn and herbaceous borders with a small patio area. It is a south facing sun trap and there is an absolutely fantastic view of the fells.

We've have provided good quality garden furniture for six people.

Just 2 minutes from the house is the village centre. Here you'll find all amenities needed and fortunately some great pubs. There is a village butcher within the Nisa shop, the home cured bacon and sausages are great. Each pub has its own character, good real ales and terrific food. The Black Bull has its own brewery! There is even an excellent Indian restaurant and the Gastro Bistro Steam is highly recommended (advance booking needed )

The house has unlimited wifi, a smart TV, we allow one well behaved dog only which must not go upstairs or on the furniture.

The stairs are steep and we do not allow smoking of any kind.

Our preferred guests are couples and families.

About Brad or Sue Thompson

We live in South Cheshire and have spent many happy days around the fells and mountains of the Lake District and Snowdonia. The photo above is us near the Summit of the Old Man after traversing Dow Crag last September, terrific day out.

Brad or Sue Thompson purchased this house in 2015

Why Brad or Sue Thompson chose Coniston

We have always loved the Lake District and especially the quieter unspoilt towns and villages such as Coniston, it is a privilege to be able to spend time and relax in such a community in the midst of some of Britains most stunning scenery. We worked hard for a year to create a home in the village, during that time we experienced unbelievable help and hospitality and made new friends, this makes Coniston a special place for us.

We have refirbished, decorated and furnished the house as a home as though we were intending to live there and so you should find every comfort needed for great holiday.

You really could dump the car and not need it all week. From the house you can access every level of walk from flat easy trek to serious mountain day out. Just over the hill is Grizedale Forest if mountain biking is your sport. You're

only a short distance from all central high fells and within reach of the remote western fells if you have a longer day out. And all the time you can easily get back to base camp in Coniston.

If you really want to visit the hub bub of the big town you can pop up to Ambleside safe in the knowledge that Coniston isn't far away!

The house is 2 minutes from the village centre where you can find the Co op, cafes, bakers, hardware shop and Hutchinsons butcher in the Nisa shop, the home cured bacon very good. There's outdoor shops, news agents and gift shops too and the famous Honesty Shop selling a variety hand made products, jam and cakes.

The Spar /garage which sells practically everything and is open until 22:00. There are several good pubs in the village centre and more further afield. The Black Bull has a brewery making great real ales including famous Bluebird bitter.

We have a great bakery supplying a whole range of artisan breads.

Saras Indian restaurant is very good. Steam Bistro is excellent "gastro" dining (150m from home) Both are unlicensed so take your own "medicine". Saras is cash only. You must book ahead at Steam.

What makes this house unique

The views from the house and garden are incredible, we find it impossible not to delight at the morning sun lighting up Yewdale Crags when you pull back the curtains, when you step out of the back door you can't help but glance up to the fells. If you sit in the garden you'll undoubtedly end up studying the endless cliffs and crags of the Old Man whilst all the time you will hear Church Beck rushing off to Coniston Water.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We stayed in this beautifully refurbished cottage for two nights. What a treat!! Stunning location, every detail thought of and real home from home comfort. The owners were beyond helpful with tips and advice on local amenities. The three bedrooms and two bathrooms have been tastefully renovated and decorated, a fabulous fitted kitchen with everything you could possibly need! Comfortable dining room with books, board games and local information books on a fully stocked unit. The lounge was beautiful with the log burner lit of an evening whilst enjoying a well deserved glass of wine after all that walking discovering the breath taking views. Posted on Trip advisor.

Wonderful cosy Christmas stay

  • 5 of 5

This is the best self catering accommodation we have ever stayed in, because it’s a beautiful home. Stayed for 5 days over Christmas. The home was spotlessly clean, and had lots of lovely little touches, Christmas Tree and lots of lovely decorations, door mat, logs for the fire, hand soap, games, logs for the wood burner, basically everything you need, it felt very thoughtful and extremely homely. The house is very spacious for 6, with lovely rooms, comfortable beds and the best stocked kitchen, which was superb for cooking our Christmas lunch in. Highly recommend the property, Brad and Sue were great, good communication, they gave us tips on the area, and a few walks which we did and really enjoyed. We would love to stay again. Coniston is such a lovely place to stay, especially in the winter, we had some stunning walks and views.

Thank you for sharing your home!

Brilliant. Perfect position in Coniston village, very well equipped and comfortable property.

  • 5 of 5

Could not fault the property. Plenty of space for the 4 of us and 1 dog. We would definitely go again and recommend it to others. Clean with up to date fittings but very homely and full of character. Loved the log burner.

Previous guests had mentioned the stairs as being steep. They are stairs typically found in Victorian properties, so absolutely no problem to us.

Exceeded our Expectaions!

  • 5 of 5

We booked to stay in this accommodation and expected it to be nice but the photos really don't do it justice. The place has very large rooms, it was very clean, well equipped and in the perfect location. It has a very homely feel, the log burning fire was fantastic and there was a lot of books and maps to help with the local area if you are unfamiliar with it as we were. We can't wait for our next stay here next year in August!
