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 - it's crying out for a BBQ 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.

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.
