  • Heather

    “We had a great week in a very clean and comfortable cottage.”

    Just a couple of minor points - it would be nice if here was a small table outside so it would be possible to eat outside (this has been mentioned a number of times in the visitors book. Secondly, a clothes airer would be useful - did some washing of things that cannot go in tumble dryer and had to use towel rail in ensuite to dry.

The property

Whatever the season, this bright, spacious and family-friendly cottage provides an excellent base for exploring Coniston and the surrounding area. Away from the rush and overlooking the breathtaking Coniston Fells, Mountain Ash Cottage remains only a few minutes' walk from shops, pubs and of course the lake shore. End your summer days in the secluded patio garden and makes the most of the outlook. In the chilly months, cosy up by the open fire and share your stories. The accommodation is perfectly equipped for holiday living with space for dining, a homely lounge and plenty of entertainment for rainy days. Families, sharing couples and friends (including pets!) are welcome. The Cottage has been recently enhanced by a recent refurbishment and additional bathroom. == Accommodation in detail Traditional porch entrance with space for walking boots. Comfortably furnished lounge with open fire, large LCD TV/DVD and CD Hi-Fi.Spacious dining kitchen with extensive appliances (including gas hob and electric oven, washing machine, tumble dryer and dishwasher) and direct access to the furnished patio garden. Upstairs to the 2 bedrooms; 1 double with stunning views to the Coniston Fells and 1 twin with space for additional cot and en-suite shower room. Family-size bathroom with shower over bath. Private parking for one car, additional parking may be available in the communal spaces in the close. A Coniston holiday cottage 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.

Nestling at the head of Coniston Water, the pretty village of Coniston is surrounded by some of the most beautiful scenery in the Lake District National Park, making it a superb base for touring, with Hawkshead, Ambleside, Windermere and Grasmere just a short drive away. Superb walking, mountain biking and climbing are available locally on Coniston Old Man and Wetherlam, and the lovely woodland trails at Grizedale Forest. For watersports enthusiasts, the quiet lake is ideal for dinghy sailing and canoeing, whilst the less active can enjoy a leisure cruise on the beautiful steam yacht 'Gondola’, or visit Brantwood, the former home of John Ruskin. Nearby attractions include the award-winning village of Hawkshead, home of the Beatrix Potter Gallery, Tarn Hows, one of the most visited beauty spots in the country and Esthwaite Water, famous for its fishing. A first class holiday location at any time of the year.
