    “The house is in a very peaceful location and the facilities on offer are good.”

    There are some items that could do with minor repairs or being serviced such as kitchen wall unit doors not staying in place, sauna start up being tricky, pillows could do to be a bit firmer, improved cleaning of shower areas, tumble drier needs checking regularly for over-flowing condensate collection and should the kitchen layout be redesigned sometime in the future, we would suggest moving the dishwasher next to the fridge as that corner of the kitchen is too crowded when a number of people ...

    There are some items that could do with minor repairs or being serviced such as kitchen wall unit doors not staying in place, sauna start up being tricky, pillows could do to be a bit firmer, improved cleaning of shower areas, tumble drier needs checking regularly for over-flowing condensate collection and should the kitchen layout be redesigned sometime in the future, we would suggest moving the dishwasher next to the fridge as that corner of the kitchen is too crowded when a number of people are working in the room. The oven could do with a good clean too. However, there are many good points such as loads of space inside and out with fantastic grounds, great TV/entertainment, super hot tub. Great for kids (big and small)

About the location

CONISTON

Hawkshead 4 miles; Ambleside 8 miles.

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.
