    Property description
    Rental Home – 
    2 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 4
    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.

    Situated in an enviable spot, the cottage is an ideal place for couples, families or small groups, to come and unwind in the peaceful surroundings and explore the Lakes by foot, bike or boat.

    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. The period feel has been sympathetically maintained with exposed beams in all rooms, cast iron wood burning stove in an original fire place setting, antique furniture and even a 300 year old bread oven!

Quaint old fashioned home with all mod cons. Tea, coffee, sugar, milk and a bottle of wine waiting for us when we arrived. Well away from the hustle and bustle of normal life. Stroll to the lake, down the lane or through the woods--bliss. Only thing to be wary of is if you are tall mind your head on the... more

My wife and I took the in-laws for a weekend treat. The cottage was well equipped with everything you needed and more. It was cosy, exceptionally clean, well maintained and the location was second to none. A short drive to either coniston or ulverston, which gives you the choice to eat out or just stay in and enjoy the home... more

Despite 'The Farmhouse' being easy to find, it is in a beautiful, rural spot where the only sounds you can hear is that of owls and the occasional baa-ing of sheep. Coniston lake is only a minute's walk down the path and there's lots of play places surrounding the cottage. The cottage is cosy but with ample space to relax... more
