Overview

3 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 6
Coniston, Duddon Valley, Lake District, Cumbria, England
NOW with wifi (although not super fast)! 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 (along a woodland path, which may be muddy when wet!), and is ideal for boating, picnics and exploring. Wild Cat island is within reach by boat, and the beautiful Blawith common is just down the road - 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 woodburne... Read more

The cottage is ideally situated next to the lake and only a 1 minute walk away from its own private beach. The cottage is hidden away, just off a main road setback into some woods. Located next to a few walking trails and only a 5 minute drive to the nearest town. Will be coming back here again!

Management response:

Thanks Craig. Glad you enjoyed your stay. Yes, the cottage is well set back and nice and peaceful. The Lake shore beach is a lovely place to enjoy too. I think your five minutes to town was probably a little optimistic- maybe on a motorbike on Sunday morning!! Do come again. Regards, Phil and Kate Okeden

Good place for a get away from it all break. Situated in a small courtyard with two other properties, off the road in a wooded area, it's very quiet and peaceful. Private access to the lake is a plus. Small patio garden at rear great for barbecues.
