Property code: LCC68

This is a traditional semi-detached barn conversion situated on the north-east tip of Coniston Water – a spectacular location. Stylish and comfortable, it's perfect for a wonderful holiday relaxing or enjoying the great outdoors.

Located on a small country estate, just above the shores of Coniston Water and at the heart of the Lake District, this semi-detached converted barn shares a courtyard with four other delightful holiday homes. With extensive shared gardens and grounds as well as direct access to the estate's private lake shore, this property makes an ideal base from which to enjoy a wonderful Lakeland holiday. This spectacular area has welcomed and inspired many renowned guests including Beatrix Potter and Arthur Ransome (author of ‘Swallows and Amazons’), Tennyson, the Victorian Poet Laureate, and the painter William Turner. The awe-inspiring scenery of idyllic Coniston Water with its backdrop of the rugged Coniston Old Man mountain range will make any stay extra special. A real treat for the adventurous, this superb holiday home is ideally placed for all the attractions and outdoor activities on offer in this glorious corner of the UK ,but is equally perfect for those who just want to soak up the peace and quiet and relax. A short distance from the Western edge of Grizedale Forest, miles of walking and cycling trails are yours to explore. Enjoy your favourite water sports on magical Coniston Water where Donald Campbell made his water speed record attempts in the famous ‘Bluebird’. Coniston village is just over a mile away and offers a range of outdoor activity providers, shops, pubs, cafes and a highly rated bistro. The Boating Centre is a great place from which to hire boats, take boat trips on the famous Gondola (a Victorian steam yacht) and launches or just simply feed the ducks and enjoy an ice cream.

This holiday retreat offers a combination of style and comfort, coupled with an enviable position close to the lake and is equally suited to both those who want to relax and those looking for adventures. With its wooden beams, deep set windows and slate tiled downstairs flooring, this house has a taste of the traditional but is balanced with more contemporary styling, creating a very special home-from-home. From the courtyard the house opens, through the original arched barn entrance, into the stylish, spacious lounge - a room full of character with a TV and DVD player and an inglenook fireplace with wood burner; this is the perfect place to gather and relax especially after a long day exploring. Through glazed French windows to the left is the kitchen/diner which is roomy and well-equipped with electric cooker, ceramic hob, microwave, dishwasher, fridge, freezer and washing machine and makes a great sociable space for a relaxed cooking and dining experience. From the hallway there is a compact, tasteful ground floor shower room with walk-in shower WC and hand basin. The staircase leads to the first floor where there are two light, restful king-size bedrooms and one lovely twin room as well as a contemporary bathroom with over-bath shower, WC and washbasin.

Outside there is a sunny patio area, a great spot for al fresco dining and across the track from the property a lovely grassy paddock, ideal for family games. Beyond the courtyard, idyllic Coniston Water will tempt you through the grounds and down to the estate’s private lake shore area which is shared with other properties on the estate - this is the place for picnics, paddling and fishing for tiddlers. If you want to bring your own sailing boat, there are also jetties for you to tie up to. Perfect!

Tinkler Beck Farm is a lovely property, modern, clean and well equipped. Beautiful views of Lake Coniston through the trees from the courtyard. Path down to the lake where you can swim, we took our sailing dinghy and the owners helped tow it up the path at the end of the week.

Just had 5 nights at Tinkler Beck Farm. The cottage and the whole set up with their other properties on site is outstanding and very attractive. It is in a great location, literally 2 minutes walk from the shores of Coniston Water.

Tinkler Beck Farm enjoys a quiet location on the shore or Lake Coniston, it isn't central to the town but if you want peace and tranquillity that is a plus point. The cottage is furnished to a high standard and has all the equipment you could want for a home away from home. This was our second visit and we'd happily return again.

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.
