This family-friendly apartment is tucked away on a quiet lane in Coniston with village amenities and the majestic Coniston Water less than half a mile from the doorstep.

This beautiful holiday home offers high quality self-catering accommodation in a superb location that is a wonderful starting point for hundreds of walks, either on the high fells or along the banks of Coniston Water. Situated on a quiet lane, it is only a couple of minute’s stroll into Coniston village with its variety of restaurants, cafes, pubs and independent shops. Coniston Lodge holds important historical standing in the area, as it was rented by Donald Campbell during his last and fatal attempt to break the world speed record on Coniston.

This exceptionally well-equipped apartment is situated on the first floor, with views across the lane of traditional slate houses and onward to the Yewdale Fells. The property is very comfortably furnished with a full range of modern appliances to accommodate four people in two good-sized bedrooms. It is especially appealing to families with children. The delightful twin bedroom features Beatrix Potter’s characters with soft toys and patchwork cushions completing the look – a must for fans young and old!

The beautiful shared garden provides a peaceful area to sit out and enjoy the sunshine amongst the pretty hanging baskets, pots and planters.

Located in the southern Lake District, Coniston is a popular destination with its majestic scenery, wonderful walking and cycling. There is a vast array of things to do for visitors of all ages in the area including Hilltop, Beatrix Potter's home at Near Sawrey, the Lakeland Motor Museum at Newby Bridge, Wordsworth’s Dove Cottage in Grasmere and Grisedale Forest which has cycle tracks and a Go Ape course.

The property is approached via a pretty front garden adorned with colourful shrubs. A bench at the front door provides a handy spot to take off those muddy boots after a day out walking. In the shared entrance hall you'll find a variety of local handmade delights for sale such as, chutneys, jams and marmalades. On this level there is also a shared laundry comprising of a washing machine, tumble dryer, iron and ironing board.

Up a short flight of internal stairs you arrive at the property. On entering the property you are greeted by a small hallway with plenty of space for coats, shoes and luggage. The bright open-plan living space has three large windows overlooking the lane, with views up towards the Yewdale Fells.

The modern kitchen caters for your every need with electric oven, gas hob, microwave, toaster, dishwasher and integrated fridge/freezer. Alongside the kitchen are a dining table and four chairs. Many lovely touches, such as a welcome tray with a delicious homemade cake, help to get your holiday off to a great start.

The living room has comfy sofas and armchairs for lounging after a busy day. The room benefits from a wood-burner effect electric fire and a television with DVD player for snuggling up in the evenings.

Both bedrooms are a good size, having wardrobes with full-length mirrors and other useful storage. The double has a king-size bed and is decorated in pink and green pastel shades giving it a cottage feel. The twin features a Beatrix Potter theme with patchwork quilts and soft toys, appealing to young and old. Both bedrooms have en-suite bathrooms with electric showers over the bath, hand basin and WC.

Outside you'll find a delightful cottage garden for you to share with the neighbouring apartment. Nestled amongst the hanging baskets, pots and planters, a separate seating area is allocated for the property with table, chairs, parasol and sunbeds.

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.
