    Blea Brows enjoys a fantastic secluded setting in Arthur Ransome's Swallows and Amazons country! It is a fabulous cottage for couples, families or group holidays, and a safe location for children and pets as it is set in the grounds of the big house, Brown Howe. It enjoys private lake access (with three other properties), just a few minutes stroll away, ideal for boating, picnics and exploring. Wild Cat island is within reach by boat, and the beach adjoins the beautiful Blawith common, ideal for exploring and with more lovely beaches to discover! From here you can also enjoy amazing views up the lake towards Coniston, with the well-walked Fairfield Horseshoe in view.
    It is a cosy, comfortable detached cottage with woodburner, and well equipped for holida...

Blea Brows is the perfect place for a peaceful relaxing break. Situated in a private courtyard set in a woodland off the main road, the cottage is comfortably furnished and very well equipped. The log burner in the cosy lounge is an attractive feature but fortunately during our stay the weather was very mild and we didn't need to light... more

Very much enjoyed our week despite heavy rain & wind. Unfortunately not able to make use of the barbeque & back garden. So much more to see & do next time! more

4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2014 for a stay in June 2014

We stayed here to celebrate my Mum and Dad's 40th wedding anniversary. The location was wonderful, near enough to Coniston to not feel cut-off but in an unspoilt, peaceful place on the edge of the lake. We were lucky enough to have great weather and made the most of the garden furniture and BBQ. We had a toddler and found... more

Management response:

Thanks for your review. I'm glad that you were able to celebrate your parents 40th wedding anniversary there. Sorry about the travel cot. It tends to only get occasional use, but we should have ensured it was 'dust free'. We've added that job to our 'check-in' check list - Thanks! All the best, Phil and Kate more
