    “Really lovely holiday cottage that was very well equipped and very thoughtful.”

    The location was perfect as it felt remote but just a 10 minute walk to Coniston and trail accessible behind the home. Would highly recommend for a relaxing holiday away from the bustle of Ambleside and Windermere.

The property

The owners have created a comfortable and relaxing ambience having recently upgraded the kitchen and bathroom. Couples or families will feel entirely at home in this much loved holiday home. Curdle Dub is sheltered below the fells of the Coniston range in a peaceful position having a rural outlook towards the graceful valley at the head of Coniston Water and Grizedale Forest beyond. It is ideally placed for low and high level walks from the back of the cottage as well as mountain biking. The village of Coniston is a short walk away with its shops, supermarket, cafes and award wining brewery at the Black Bull. Escape here and find an unforgettable retreat, well-placed for you to experience the inspirational landscapes, fascinating history and spell-binding waterborne activities of this unique Lake District holiday location. == Accommodation in detail Arrive to your delightful sitting-out area, with a path leading to the entrance porch. Enter into the cosy living / dining room, adorned with old oak beams. You'll enjoy countryside views from the traditional window seats. The modern kitchen is well-equipped with upto date appliances and everything you need to make the most of precious time in this Coniston holiday cottage. Upstairs to the two bedrooms, one super-king size (which can also be set up as twin beds) and one double, both with window seats, picture cottage windows and fabulous views. Modern, spacious bathroom with shower over bath. Secure external bike storage Location A holiday cottage in Coniston takes you away from the busy streets of Bowness, and the sometimes touristy feel of Lake Windermere. This picturesque and peaceful village lies in the west of the Lakes, on the edge of Coniston Water - the Lake District's third largest lake. Overlooked by the dramatic presence of Coniston Old Man - a famous Lake District hike - the lake provides water-borne activities in breathtaking surroundings. Coniston's Victorian stream yacht gondola and traditional launches offer relaxed, scenic cruises. You'll learn about Donald Campbell's famous water speed record attempt in 'Bluebird', and explore Peel Island which provided the setting for 'Wild Cat Island' in Arthur Ransome's Swallows and Amazons. Overlooking Coniston is Brantwood, historic home of the artist, writer and creative thinker John Ruskin. The house is open to the public and has an excellent cafe, The Jumping Jenny, with superb lake views. For exploring further afield, a holiday home in Coniston provides a peaceful, picturesque but convenient base. Find Hawkshead and Windermere to your east, Langdale and Grasmere to the north and Ulverston to the south, with manageable journeys by bus or car. For a spectacular scenic drive, head west to the Duddon Valley and follow Wrynose Pass to Eskdale, followed by Hardknott Pass to Little Langdale. Very steep roads but worth it for the scenery!
