    - Mr Frith,

The property

Strolling distance from Coniston village centre and yet right by the shores of Coniston Water at Waterhead,this beautifully placed hideaway apartment truly enjoys the very best of both worlds, set in absolute peace and quiet within a delightful country guest house, commanding breathtaking views of the dramatic surrounding mountains including Coniston Old Man. A fantastic base from which to explore this vibrant village, the magic of Coniston Water and also the wider Lake District. A soothing open plan living space, complete with dining area and kitchen, makes the ideal environment for relaxed gatherings or sociable occasions admiring the wonderful views. Two couples can spread out and relax; the two bedrooms are full of space and light and one enjoying the dramatic scenery and the bathroom is ideal for long soaks after a day on the fells. Don't forget the delightful gardens, perfect for lazy days and al-fresco life. == Accommodation in detail Park right outside your entrance and gaze at the views. A communal entrance leads to the first floor private entrance. Entrance hall with access to the open plan living area, a great place to relax and open plan to the well equipped kitchen. The bathroom has a shower and a bath and there are two bedrooms; the double with stunning views and the super king or twin, please specify when booking how you wish this room to be made up?Location A Coniston holiday apartment takes you slightly away from the hustle and bustle of Bowness and Lake Windermere, to a wilder landscape full of adventure. Coniston Water is famous for its part in Arthur Ransome's Swallows and Amazons, with Peel Island being the setting for the 'Wild Cat Island' featured in the story. The lake is also known for Donald Campbell's water speed record attempt in 'Bluebird'. But the real magic comes from the breathtaking surroundings; dramatic fells including Coniston Old Man, wild woodlands and wonderful Lake District walks. You'll have access to no end of stunning routes, from leisurely strolls to challenging ascents. You'll enjoy access to the peaceful village centre, well equipped for stocking up the kitchen with traditional butcher and supermarket. There are lovely tea rooms, cafes and traditional Lakeland pubs in Coniston village, and the Black Bull Inn is well worth a visit for its award-winning brewery the Coniston Brewing Co. For a cultured day out, head to Brantwood historic house - an impressive residence overlooking the lake, once home to John Ruskin the famous artist, writer and creative thinker. You'll find a range of events on offer, such as talks, concerts, craft workshops and even outdoor theatre.
