  • One of a pair of neighbouring apartments in the heart of Coniston
  • This first-floor property features a shared garden in a secluded part of the town
  • The apartment is part of a property occupied by Donald Campbell during his last attempt at the world water speed record
Property code: SZ461

Perfect for exploring the heart of the Lake District, this pretty apartment offers spacious and tasteful accommodation for four guests, making it a fantastic holiday base for couples and families.

This alluring holiday property is one of two neighbouring apartments offered by Coniston Lodge and can be booked together with Yewdale Crags for larger groups.

A delightfully bright first-floor apartment, the property overlooks a pretty garden bordered by lush trees and an array of colourful shrubs in pots and planters. Situated on a quiet lane, the property has a peaceful location, yet is only a couple of minutes walk from the centre of Coniston village with its variety of cafes, pubs and restaurants. You can experience a true taste of history in the apartment, as Coniston Lodge was rented by Donald Campbell during his last and fatal attempt to break the world speed record.

The property benefits from two good-sized double bedrooms, each with its own bathroom making it ideal for two couples or families. A romantic four-poster bed in one room adds something a little special. A zip-and-link bed in the second bedroom converts to two singles if necessary. The kitchen is extremely well equipped with your every need catered for including lots of lovely touches, such as a welcome tray with a delicious homemade cake. After a day on the fells relax with some quiet reading time in the comfortable lounge. Outside, the leafy enclosed garden with patio furniture and sunbeds is the ideal place to soak up the evening sunshine over a chilled glass of wine. Off-road under-cover parking for two cars and a lockable bike store provides secure, convenient storage.

This is the perfect spot for hiking. The property has many lovely walks right from the doorstep. Turn left from the garden gate and head up to the high fells of Coniston Old Man and Wetherlam. Or if you prefer something a little gentler, a short stroll brings you to the banks of Coniston Water where you can follow a picturesque path along the water’s edge.

With three large windows in each of the rooms, the apartment benefits from lots of natural light and a great outlook over the pretty country garden.

The open-plan living area has a modern very well-equipped kitchen with electric oven, gas hob, microwave, dishwasher and integrated fridge/freezer. With a great selection of pots, pans, cutlery and glassware and a dining table and chairs for four people, you will have everything you need for cosy meals in.

Comfy sofas, armchairs and lots of cushions adorn the comfortable lounge making it a great place to unwind in front of the TV and DVD player. The electric wood burner effect fire will add some pleasant warmth on cooler evenings.

The first bedroom has a romantic four-poster double bed and is decorated in pretty pastel shades of lilac and pink. The second bedroom has a super-king size bed. Both bedrooms have fully tiled en-suite bathrooms, one with electric shower over the bath and one with a walk in shower, hand basin and WC.

In the reception area there are shared laundry facilities comprising of a washing machine, tumble dryer, iron and ironing board.

Outside there is a lovely garden shared with the neighbouring apartment. Tarn Hows has its own seating area, with table, chairs, sunbeds and parasol. A wonderful place for you to lay back and spend a pleasant afternoon relaxing amongst the array of colourful azaleas, rhododendrons and hanging baskets.

There is off-road under-cover parking for two cars. Lockable storage for bikes and other outdoor equipment is also available.

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. Take a look at our full collection of self-catering cottages and begin to plan your holiday.
