Copper Beech Lodge is a detached stone built residence, formerly the gatehouse to an Edwardian country estate. The striking lodge has a private terraced garden on the edge of woodland, visited by a variety of wildlife. Situated at Brown Howe near Water Yeat in the southwest of Coniston Water, there is direct lake access and views to Beacon Fell.
Water Yeat is a small hamlet towards the southern end of the lake. It is a serene location with no shops or pub and just a few other buildings. A few miles down the road from Copper Beech Lodge at Torver there are two popular pubs including the Wilson Arms, a family owned pub with a deli and shop attached. There are several good pubs in Coniston and a pub on the A5084 at Lowick Bridge.
The owners of Copper Beech Lodge have blended old with new to create distinctive accommodation, full of character. The dining room sits in a large angular bay window, whilst the sitting room is on the second floor, filled with light by velux windows in a vaulted ceiling and patio doors to a large balcony. Original interior features have been retained to add character and a slate fireplace is the focal point of the sitting room.
The lodge sleeps 8 people in comfort and is well suited to growing families as there is a large ground floor bedroom with twin beds and a bunkbed.
Coniston Water is a few minutes walk from the lodge through woodland. Visitors have access to a private beach (shared with the properties in the old stable yard). There are two Canadian canoes available for use at guests own risk. Walks on the surrounding fells can be accessed directly from the lodge.
