Overview

About the property

House in Coniston, Central Lake District, Cumbria, England - CENTRAL VILLAGE LOCATION - 10 MINUTE WALK TO CONISTON WATER

Your holiday in Puddleduck House is a holiday you'll never forget. Step out of the front door and have everything at your fingertips .... A hearty lung-stretching hike up Coniston Old Man, a peaceful meander around Coniston Water, a stroll into the village with a choice of five pubs, lots of cafes and well stocked convenience stores for all you need for your stay.

Situated in the very heart of the Lake District, you simply do not need to venture outside of Coniston to have a truly delightful and memorable holiday. However, other parts of the Lakes are within very easy reach - Ambleside, Hawkshead, The Langdales - they are all within a short, breath-taking drive.

Puddleduck House is a spacious three bedroom house within a few steps of the picture postcard village of Coniston and the simply stunning lake and mountain scenery. Situated right in the heart of the village, you only need to walk to the end of the street to get to all the pubs, shops and cafes that Coniston has to offer. An 8 - 10 minute walk takes you to the Lake! In the house, there is a sensational fireplace and log-burner in the large, airy lounge and comfy leather seating with wall-mounted Smart TV, large dining room with easy seating for 6 people, country kitchen with dishwasher, washing machine (tumble dryer in garage), fridge-freezer (with another fridge/freezer in the garage), oven, microwave, slow cooker, and downstairs WC. On the first floor there is a large family room which has either a superking bed in or twin beds and another bedroom has a double bed with en-suite shower room and WC. On the top floor there is a master bedroom with lovely views across to the fields and mountain range, a stylish kingsize bed. On this floor there is also the main family bathroom with gorgeous roll top bath, fully tiled shower cubicle and WC. Outside there is large garage with parking for 1 or 2 cars and a separate garden with picnic bench, BBQ area and simply stunning views of Coniston Old Man!

The property comes with super-fast fibre WiFi.

About Chloe Hibberd

My name is Chloe White and for the past eight years or so, I have developed a real passion for the Lake District and the surrounding Cumbrian countryside. So much so that two years ago I got married to my husband on the banks of Lake Ullswater.

Having stayed at numerous other holiday cottages, I know what's really important when you are staying - and how important the little touches are! I really try and make sure guests have the best holiday - I have one guest who has just booked their fourth stay! I'm always happy to help if you have any queries whatsoever about the house, the area - or if you just simply want some ideas of things to do throughout your visit. Please do get in touch! :) Chloe x

Chloe Hibberd purchased this house in 2014

Why Chloe Hibberd chose Windermere & Central Lakes

We bought Puddleduck House in late November. We couldn't believe our luck in finding something right in the heart of Coniston - walking distance to the lake, all the pubs and being situated right in the heart of the lakes. The property is really spacious and we have a lovely little garden with a patio area - where you can sit and look up at the mountains. It's just so lovely!

What makes this house unique

We love everything about Coniston - from the convenience of being in the centre of a bustling village, to the tranquility of the lake and mountains surrounding the village. We offer a spacious property (three double bedrooms) plus an en-suite, which is ideal for families - and yet we try and keep the rates competitive. We also allow pets (up to two well behaved dogs) and it's a fantastic area for all the family - or equally a couple who just appreciate having a bit of space around them.

Wonderful cottage

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of 5 who have stayed in many holiday cottages. Puddleduck House was by the the cleanest and best equipped we have ever stayed in. The wine, roses and homemade cake were a lovely touch. Chloe was so helpful with everything. I chatted to Sue the cleaner and she was lovely and its very obvious that she works hard to keep the house as clean as it is. This was our first time staying in Coniston but won't be our last.

It was a lovely cottage in a wonderful location

  • 5 of 5

Puddleduck House in Coniston is a really lovely cottage in the heart of Coniston. We stayed for four nights in May. It was very well equipped and extremely comfortable. The location is ideal with shops on the doorstep and many lovely walks straight from the front door. It is a quieter part of the Lake District and all the better for it. We would highly recommend the property for those looking for comfort, tranquillity and wonderful scenery. We had a great time there.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your review - so glad you had a lovely peaceful time! Coniston is definitely quieter than Windermere and Ambleside which makes it ideal, in my (albeit biased!!) opinion! However, the other villages are all within easy distance for day trips out. Hope you manage to come again one day! Chloe x

Well equipped and comfortable in convenient location

  • 5 of 5

A thoughtfully furnished house with everything you need including a BBQ and a garden with great views. The garage was a bonus for us as we had two cars. The house is just two minutes' walk from Coniston's centre and there are pubs with decent food, shops and a regular bus service if you want to leave your car behind. The Steam Bistro at the end of the road is highly recommended if you want a really good meal - and at under £25 for three courses, it's great value. Take your own alcoholic drinks. A good base for walks - the routes to Coniston Old Man and Tarn Hows are both nearby. Highly recommended.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your kind review - so pleased you had such a lovely time! Yes, I definitely recommend Steam too - at the time of writing, it is listed as number one on the most popular review site in the whole of Cumbria and the Lakes :) Hope you manage to come again one day!

Puddleduck Cottage, Coniston

  • 5 of 5

Lovely spacious property, which copes with two dogs really well. One of the best equipped cottages that we have stayed in. Central to all amenities and good pubs. Lovely views and walking from the house.

Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved staying at Puddleduck. My husband and I have stayed at many self catering cottages over the years and I have to say that this is the best! We cannot praise Chloe enough for all the facilities within Puddleduck. The only time we have had a roll top bath and filter coffee was a 5 star cottage. Roses, wine and home made cake, wow!

This was our 1st stay in Coniston as we usually stay at Bowness but we far preferred Coniston and will definitely return!

Our week went too quickly and wish we were still there.

You won't be disappointed, it's a gem of a cottage.

Glad you enjoyed the roll top bath too - it feels rather lush, I must admit :))) I'd love to welcome you to stay again - do let me know when you can manage it! All the very best, Chloe x

A lovely place

  • 5 of 5

Puddleduck is a charming terraced house near the centre of Coniston. It's well equipped and very comfortable.

The stairs would be a bit steep if you had mobility problems.

Owner's Response: Hi Gill Many thanks for your review and I'm so pleased you all had a great holiday in Puddleduck! Yes, the stairs are a touch steeper than average - though there is a sturdy bannister on the way up and flexi gates for children. My 84 year old father in law skips up and down :)) but if you had restricted mobility then you might want to stay on the middle floor in the room with the en-suite to make things easier and less stairs to climb! Hope to have you guys to stay again one day! All the best, Chloe x

Further Details:

Puddleduck House is a holiday you'll never forget. Step out of the front door and have everything at your fingertips .... A hearty lung-stretching hike up Coniston Old Man, a peaceful meander around Coniston Water, a stroll into the village with a choice of five pubs, lots of cafes and well stocked convenience stores for all you need to stock up for your stay.

In the very heart of the Lake District, you simply do not need to venture outside of Coniston to have a truly delightful and memorable holiday. However, other parts of the Lakes are within very easy reach - Ambleside, Hawkshead, The Langdales - they are all within a short, breath-taking drive.
