  • Charming character cottage in the heart of the Lake District
  • Situated on the private Atkinson Ground Estate close to Coniston Water
  • Beautifully furnished and decorated inside
Property code: LCC59

This period property is both charming and stylish, making it the perfect venue for a romantic getaway for two.

Enjoy a romantic couples’ escape at this period cottage, located on the privately-owned Atkinson Ground Estate in the heart of the Lake District. Nestled close to Coniston Water, you’ll find ample mountain and lakeside walks on your doorstep - making it the perfect place to explore with a canine companion. And once you’ve finished exploring, return to your home away from home and relax beside the wood burner with a well-earned glass of wine.

Character and charm ooze from this property, where traditional and contemporary decor combine to achieve a homely and cosy ambiance. Step through the oak front door and into the open-plan kitchen/diner, where you can cook a romantic meal or quick breakfast beneath the traditional exposed beams. Stairs lead up to the warm and welcoming lounge - the perfect place to unwind in the evening and watch a film with your loved one. In the summer months, venture out to the small patio area to the front of the cottage which makes for a peaceful spot for a delicious BBQ or al fresco drink. Back inside though, a further stairway takes you from the lounge to the king-size bedroom, which has been tastefully decorated in neutral tones and features a decorative fireplace and a delightful window seat so you can sit and take in the incredible countryside view.

Explore the northeast head of Coniston Water and its spectacular scenery. The surrounding rugged mountain ranges offer a challenging but enjoyable trek for adventurous walkers, while the local area offers far more gentle strolls for all abilities. Lake Windermere is just 7.5 miles from the property, with plenty of boat trips, water sports, and lakeside walks to enjoy. Grizedale Forest (5.5 miles) also offers ample woodland walks as well as plenty of sticks for your hound to fetch.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

Please note there is a refundable £150 security deposit for this property payable closer to the start of your holiday.

The cottage was very warm and cosy which was perfect when returning from our walks on the fells. The kitchen was very well equipped and had everything we needed. The nearest pub was around 1 mile away and Coniston was slightly further which was sufficiently remote without feeling isolated.

Nice comfortably furnished spacious property for two people We had issues with the heating but I understand from the agent that this has now been resolved. The log burner was a bonus. 30 minute walk into Coniston, so the property was very quiet which we really appreciated.

This property is in a lovely location and is cosy for 2. Great walks directly from the door - easy hikes to beautiful Tarn Hows or more challenging Coniston Old Man.

The Dairy is a beautiful cottage to stay at. It is in a great location not far from Coniston Lake and other locations. The cottage itself is all done out to a high spec and was extremely welcoming and well presented. We were sad to leave! When we return to the Lake District we would love to return to The Dairy as it met all our expectations.

We had a fantastic holiday. The cottage was warm, comfortable and well equipped. Its location meant that access to the lake was only a 15 minute walk. We cycled and paddle boarded almost daily and only used the car to reach Coniston or Hawkshead. The Crown Inn in Coniston offered a great range of pub meals in a safe, Covid- sensitive environment.
