Mountain Cottage - Quirky at it's best
Be inspired by the natural beauty of the Lake District at Mountain Cottage. The 3-bedroom pet-friendly cottage in Coniston is within walking distance of local attractions, shops and Coniston Water. It is beautifully decorated, with space to entertain or relax following a day of exploration. Guests can cosy up with a movie or head to the garden Pavilion for an old-school games night. Alternatively, dine alfresco or enjoy a glass of wine whilst marvelling at countryside views. With village amenities and Coniston Water just a short walk away, Mountain Cottage is the perfect spot for relaxation or an action-packed Lake District holiday. Nearby, guests can access the famous Cumbrian Way, browse independent craft shops, sample local ale in a traditional pub or even take a trip around the lake on a steam yacht gondola. The property itself is in a quiet area of the village. It’s characterful, dating to the 19th century, yet with modern, comfortable interiors and tasteful decoration throughout. The ideal choice for families, couples and friends travelling together, Mountain Cottage is also a pet-friendly property thanks to a fully enclosed garden. Ground Floor You enter Mountain Cottage into a well-appointed kitchen that offers plenty of workspace for preparing snacks or social dinners with locally sourced produce from a nearby delicatessen. The kitchen is fully equipped with an oven, hob, microwave, fridge and comes with a dishwasher to save on the washing up! Across from the kitchen, the separate dining area sits at the very heart of the property. This quirky room seats up to 5 people at a long dining table and boasts stunning countryside and garden views through the window. It’s a place, not just for eating together at breakfast, lunch or dinner, but also for playing board games with family and friends and planning the next day’s adventure taking inspiration from the terrain map. Down a short hallway, the living room of Mountain Cottage is a cosy space with original sash windows, electric woodburner and local artwork. Guests can snuggle up on comfortable leather sofas with popcorn and Netflix or iPlayer on the 40” TV or enjoy a glass of wine and swap stories about the day. Ground Floor Bedrooms The second double bedroom is also located on the ground floor - a tranquil, light and airy sanctuary with garden views, cupboard space and décor in a relaxing blend of cool tones. A set of stairs lead from this room to a separate wet room with shower and a toilet which is shared with the third bedroom. The third bedroom has a single bed and decorated in accents of green and ochre, bringing colours of the outdoors inside. A great room for teens or friends, it offers privacy while still being attached to the main house. First Floor Bedrooms The Master Bedroom is located on the first floor. A spacious room with an open feel, it’s perfect for couples. With a King-size bed dressed in soft white linens and blended warm tones, a TV and quirky, upcycled furniture, it’s a welcoming haven and a space in which to fully relax after a day of Lake District discovery. An adjoining en-suite bathroom provides a choice of walk-in shower for refreshing morning wake-up calls and a modern, free-standing bathtub, where one can soak in bubbles with a well-earned glass of wine after a long day. Outdoor Spaces – The Belvedere Located high up in the garden, The Belvedere commands breath-taking views of the lake and countryside, offering a peaceful space to work with a laptop or sketchbook and be creatively inspired. A wooden desk and chair, fireplace and a plethora of books makes the room an ideal escape from the hustle and bustle of the main house – a place where you can lose yourself in classic Lakeland poetry or photograph local landscapes from the balcony. Outdoor Spaces – The Pavilion The sunny Pavilion set away from the cottage is an old-school entertainment room where everyone can gather to enjoy a game of darts or table football, great for wet days and evenings, teens and adults alike. The Garden The garden is a special place, a lovely example of a lakeside garden, for quiet contemplation, peaceful observation and relaxation. The landscaped area with flowering plants, low-rise slate walls, gravel pathways and grassy lawns offers the ideal spot for a sunset barbecue, sun worshipping, afternoon picnics or stargazing. The Area The south Lake District has long attracted artists, poets and writers who were all creatively inspired by the scenic landscapes, and Mountain Cottage is the perfect place to make your base to explore everything this stunning region of Cumbria has to offer. A short walk from the property, Coniston, a thriving tourist town on the edge of Coniston Water, is home to superb cafes, pubs and restaurants, the John Ruskin Museum and Brantwood historic house - a museum and centre for the arts. On the shores of Coniston Water, row boats, kayaks and canoes can be hired and there’s a steam yacht gondola from where you can relax and enjoy the scenery from spring through autumn. Guests will find plenty of walking and biking trails in nearby Grizedale Forest (named 4th best mountain biking route in the country by The Telegraph) or hike to the summit of the Old Man of Coniston for spectacular 360 views and photo opportunities. Coniston also has a handful of great pubs, where you can sample creative dishes made with local produce and local ales, such as the famous Bluebird Bitter, available in the 400-year-old Black Bull Pub in the village. When it comes to shopping, the town champions local craftspeople with a whole host of gift shops. Local cafes serve homemade fare and restaurants offer dine in or take away options you can enjoy in the comfort of your holiday home. If you fancy venturing further afield, it’s possible to access the famous Cumbrian Way from Mountain Cottage which covers the length of Coniston Water and the charming villages of Hawkshead, and Ambleside are 10 and 20 minutes by car respectively.
