Property Notes

The property has a natural water supply from a spring.
The property benefits from an energy efficient eco-friendly ground source heat pump.
Please note: the hot tub may not be up to temperature on arrival due to cleaning and water changes.
There is an unfenced stream in the garden so we ask that small children be supervised at all times.




The Area

Enjoy lake-life on the shores of Coniston Water, just a short drive away. If you have your own equipment you can access the lake from various points along the western shore or alternatively head to Coniston boating centre where you will find a whole host of water-based activities throughout the year, including kayaking, paddle boarding, canoeing, and rowing.

If you’re looking to gain some altitude and admire the views from the top during your time here, the Coniston Fell Range is accessible from the front door and includes seven magnificent Wainwright summits (Coniston Old Man, Dow Crag, Swirl How, Brim Fell, Wetherlam, Great Carrs & Great Friar).

For lower level walks, you're spoilt for choice. Meander through fields, woodland and across low fells nearby.

For mountain bikers the tracks and trails of Grizedale Forest are accessible from the east side of the lake and are suitable for all abilities.

Torver has a popular country pub and deli just a short walk from the property along with an inviting cafe and art studio, all of which are dog friendly.

Coniston village is just over 3 miles away and enjoys a plethora of cosy country pubs, independent shops, and inviting cafes. Again, most of which happily accept canine companions.
