The property

Coniston 1.5 miles. Watersong, a charming, detached, single-storey lodge is situated on the edge of Coniston Water in the majestic Lake District National Park, offering a rural and romantic escape. Nestled between the villages of Coniston & Hawkshead, Watersong enjoys a private and secluded position surrounded by beautiful Lakeland scenery. With open-plan living and simple, stylish decor, Watersong is the perfect retreat for couples looking to reconnect with each other and nature. A private driveway leads you to a large, idyllic garden perfect for alfresco dining and lazy days listening to the song of both the abundant birdlife and water trickling into the pond. A short stroll along the grassy path, to the estate’s private shores on Coniston Water, brings you to the perfect spot for open water swimming, paddle boarding, kayaking, and boating or just simply to enjoy a summer picnic. Inside this treasure of a property, you’ll find an inviting king-size bedroom with floor-to-ceiling windows looking out to the garden, a smart bathroom and roomy open-plan living space. With its well-equipped kitchen and L-shaped sofa (more than big enough for two), this cosy space is ideal for those who love to cook and for those who are looking for romantic & relaxed nights in together. If you are able to tear yourself away from this gorgeous Lakeland hideaway and the fantastic Lake access it affords, there is more than enough to keep you busy. Walks from the doorstep, cycle tracks a short ride away along the lane, quaint villages, and historic houses to explore and all sorts of visitor attractions and amenities to enjoy just a short drive away. Discover the beauty of the Lake District, starting with Coniston, here, you can explore the charming village, with its great variety of shops, pubs, and cafés. Take a tour of the Ruskin Museum, enjoy a picturesque boat trip on the lake, or, for those who are more ambitious, walk to the summit of the Old Man of Coniston. Hawkshead is a beautiful village steeped in history where you can amble around tiny streets amongst 16th-century buildings and visit one of Beatrix Potter's houses, Hilltop, nearby. Enjoy a trip to Dove Cottage, Grasmere, where the poet William Wordsworth once lived. No holiday to the Lake District is complete without a visit to Ambleside and Windermere, bustling café-culture villages with plenty of retail therapy opportunities too. Easily experience all the spectacular Lake District has to offer from this gorgeous little property for two, Watersong.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £150.
