The Farmhouse is a characterful, white washed 17th century farmhouse set in a secluded 1.2 acres of woodland with private lake access (shared with two other cottages) leading to the beautiful waters of lake Coniston.

The Farmhouse has been re-furbished to a high standard with a new kitchen, family bathroom with roll top bath, shower room and thermostatically controlled central heating.

We really enjoyed our stay at this cosy Farmhouse. It was clean and spacious with access to a private beach overlooking Coniston water - perfect for relaxing in the evenings with a BBQ. It is set in a good location and is about a 5 mile walk to the Bluebird cafe (along the water-front) where we hired a boat. There... more

We had a lovely week fell walking, kayaking on the lake and relaxing. The cottage is a good base and is well equipt, clean and comfortable. Dogs are allowed. We didn't take a dog, but the lounge does smell a bit 'doggy'. It's not unpleasant just a faint doggy smell. But if you don't mind that the place is difficult... more
