Enjoy a peaceful escape in the Lake District with a loved one and four-legged friend in this beautifully modernised cottage just steps from Coniston Water.

Tucked away on a secluded private estate surrounded by vast, craggy grounds, this property is the perfect getaway for two. It provides a sense of remoteness and tranquillity, yet is only 6 miles from Coniston village and less than 10 miles from the foot of Windermere. It couldn't be better located for exploring the central Lake District! The apartment forms part of a large house thought to have been built as a farm around the mid-1800s, and it still retains many of its period features. More recently, this property and its neighbouring apartment, have been lovingly refurbished by the current owners to offer boutique-style accommodation with all the modern luxuries guests have come to desire. Contemporary furnishings and tasteful decor create a luxurious yet restful home-from-home experience.

For those wishing to relax, this is the perfect place to stay. Indoors you can enjoy a long hot soak in an elegant bathtub, or a glass or wine curled up in front of a roaring log burning stove; outside, the private patio is an idyllic place to unwind on a sunny day or enjoy an evening meal on a summer's night. The views of the surrounding trees and fell tops are surpassed only by glimpses of Coniston Water beyond. The communal grounds surrounding the property are yours to explore; a short stroll leads down to the jetty on the lakeshore, and moderate hikes lead up Beacon Fell where you can enjoy views of the surrounding countryside and visit Beacon Tarn.

A scenic drive along Coniston Water brings you to the bustling Lakeland village of Coniston where boat hire, bike hire, water sports and other outdoor activities such as gorge scrambling and archery can be organised at Coniston Boating Centre. For a more serene way to explore the Water, board the steam yacht gondola and sit back and enjoy the informative commentary and excellent scenery. If you have a head for heights, enjoy a scramble up Coniston Old Man for a picnic with a view. Nearby, Grizedale Forest has a wealth of walking and mountain biking routes, as well as arts trails and a lovely visitor centre and cafe. Historic houses like Brantwood and Hilltop offer an excellent day out, as do Holker Hall and Blackwell Arts and Crafts House just a little further afield.

You'll fall in love with this property the moment you drive up its private road through the delightful estate. Unpacking is easy with parking available close to the front door, relaxing you before you even cross the threshold of this luxury Lakeland retreat. Once through the small shared entrance hall, you're greeted by a warm and welcoming dual-aspect open-plan living space. Hardwood flooring, stripped doors, and windows with original panelling and shutters promote the property's heritage and complement the luxurious and contemporary furnishings.

The property's elevated position provides treetop scenery giving you a sense of seclusion and it makes the perfect romatic getaway. The moment you enter, you'll be drawn to the French doors which open out onto the private patio with fell-top views and glimpses of Coniston Water beyond. The interior has been recently refurbished with a beautiful sense of style and a keen eye for detail. Tones of grey have been used throughout, from the comfortable seating to the restored and modernised mid-century furniture, giving the space a luxurious elegance, while creating a relaxed and calming ambience.

The lounge benefits from a flat-screen TV, DVD player, Freesat box and Bluetooth music system, and the owners have thoughtfully supplied an excellent collection of DVDs, books and game for guests to enjoy. For summer evenings, the patio is an idyllic place to relax immersed in the stunning scenery, while winter evenings can be enjoyed snuggled in front of the log burning stove.

The kitchen is located in the far corner of the communal space and is exceptionally well equipped for a one-bedroomed apartment, complete with induction hob, fridge with freezer compartment, combination oven, grill and microwave, washer/dryer and dishwasher. Spacious drawers are packed with almost every kitchen utensil or piece of cooking equipment you could think of, and there is plenty of storage for your shopping too. If you enjoy your morning coffee, you'll be delighted to find a Nespresso coffee maker complete with a selection of capsules to get you started.

The dining table is beautifully lit and situated in front of the French doors, so at mealtimes, you can marvel at the ever-changing view over the patio towards Coniston Water.

A door leads from the living area into the beautiful bedroom, where the contemporary king-size four-poster bed and freestanding bathtub add a sense of indulgence to the serene and calming decor. The grey tones and hand-painted furniture are echoed in here creating an elegant and coordinated style. Bedside lamps, beautiful mirrors and a feature wall complete the fresh and chic furnishings, and French doors offer a scenic view from the bathtub, as well as linking the bedroom with the enclosed patio. The exposed original floorboards are a reminder of the property's heritage.

A shower room off the main living space houses a walk-in shower complete with mirrored screen, underfloor heating, a wash-basin, toilet, heated towel rail and vanity unit, immaculately presented with stylish tiling.

At the front of the property you can enjoy shared use of the surrounding grounds, perfect for relaxing and exploring alike. Your pooches are also well cared for here as there is a shared doggy shower/bath which even comes with hot water - lucky things!

The Lake District National Park is situated in the north west of England in the county of Cumbria. It is famously home to England’s tallest peak, largest lake, deepest lake and some of the most beautiful views in the British Isles. It has been a major draw for holidaymakers for over 200 years and its popularity shows no signs that this will diminish anytime soon. Adding to the spectacle, there are long-distance walking trails, endless history and culture to appreciate, as well as an unbeatable array of outdoor activities to try in some exceptionally eye-catching locations.

Mountains, lakes, rocky rivers, waterfalls, and valleys lined by stone walls characterise the Lake District National Park. Add to this vision slate-roofed villages, winding country roads, arctic alpine and wildflower meadows, and beautiful birds such as skylarks, curlews, meadow pipits, and lapwings, which all provide the perfect backdrop for a holiday. The poet, William Wordsworth, who lived in Grasmere, wrote a guidebook of the area in 1810, and very little has changed in the region to tie it into the modern world. The centre of the Lake District is dominated by its craggy mountains such as Scafell Pike and its exceptional lakes like Windermere, Ullswater, Derwentwater, Coniston Water and so many more.

Each of the Lake District’s towns has a village sensibility, yet all of them offer handy amenities, cultural attractions and some of the North West’s best places to eat and drink. Top visitor attractions include The World of Beatrix Potter, Sizergh Castle, Hill Top, Go Ape Grizedale, Grizedale Forest, Fellini and Zefferelli’s Cinema/Restaurants, the Bluebird Mk II, Ravenglass Roman Bathouse alongside a world of outdoor sporting and activity providers. Natural landmarks include Aira Force, Tarn Hows, Scaffell Pike, Castlerigg Stone Circle, The Old Man of Coniston, Helvellyn and Skiddaw. Pull on your walking boots and traverse the long-distance walking trails of the Lakes like Wainwright’s Coast to Coast, and the Tour of the Lake District.

As you get to know the region better, you will find evidence of prehistoric and ancient man in the Lake District, as there are standing stones, circles, and rows to find, as well as one of the largest standing Roman buildings in the UK. Visit Ravenglass, one of the UK’s oldest settlements and the only coastal village in the Lake District; it has beautiful waterside views of the Munros of Southern Scotland. Remnants of the region’s industrial activity can be traced in the form of bobbin mills, gunpowder mills, and mines. The Lakes also have some famous literary and art associations, including Beatrix Potter, John Ruskin, Arthur Ransome, Samuel Taylor Coleridge, William Wordsworth, JMW Turner, John Constable, LS Lowry and Percy Kelly.

It could take you five lifetimes to visit each of the places mentioned here; a good way to see more of the Lake District National Park is stay at one of our self-catering holiday cottages. Our range of holiday properties in the Lake District and Cumbria gives you the perfect place to stay in the north west countryside or on the coast. Our self-catering cottages in the Lake District offer lovely holiday accommodation to suit all your needs, from cottages to rent for a romantic getaway to larger properties for the whole family – we even have dog-friendly holiday homes across the Lake District too.
