Yewdale Crags is one of two neighbouring apartments offered by Coniston Lodge and can be booked together with Tarn Hows for larger groups.
The property 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 enclosed country 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.
For guests who book Christmas week, Yewdale Crags Apartment offers a gorgeous hamper full of lovely local homemade produce.
