  • “The price for this week in June was very high considering the cottage only sleeps 4.”

    This is the size of cottage that we normally rent on holiday in the UK but we would normally pay at least £400 less. ...

    This is the size of cottage that we normally rent on holiday in the UK but we would normally pay at least £400 less. The cottage was nice but not comfortable. There was a lot of downstairs space and for the price I would have expected comfortable furnishings. The sofa and easy chairs had definitely seen better days and were not comfy at all. Four lightbulbs had gone in the kitchen and not been replaced and there was not even a dishcloth and a bit of washing up liquid to set you going for the first night. Absolutely not value for money - I expected much more!,,

The property

Forest Cottage is one of 5 cottages at Townson Ground, a 400 year old country estate tucked away between the lake and Grizedale Forest at the north eastern end of Coniston Water. Surrounded by farmland once owned by Beatrix Potter, the location of Forest Cottage is simply superb for everything "Lake District" - from walking up the magnificent "Old Man" of Coniston, cycling in Grizedale forest, boating on the beautiful Coniston Water or simply relaxing in picturesque surroundings. Coniston village is only a mile and a half level walk, where there are cafes, shops and pubs selling the famous "Bluebird" ale. Accommodation: Through the garden gate and down a couple of steps to the front door. Entrance in to open plan kitchen/dining room/living room - a spacious sociable open plan space with character beams, handmade windows, and slate flooring with underfloor heating. Dining area has large table and chairs for lingering family meals whilst the lounge area has comfortable seating grouped around the log burning stove, flat screen TV, and DVD. This truly open-plan living space has all the ingredients of a great holiday where you can cook, eat and chat in cosy surroundings bringing all members of the party together whilst you relax and plan your next busy day. Upstairs there are two bedrooms - a double and a twin, and a high quality family bathroom fully tiled in travertine with bath, separate shower, basin and wc. Forest Cottage has been lovingly restored by the owner who has given the property a real home from home feel, with all the comforts of a modern house and the character and personality of a Lakeland Cottage. We are sure it will be the venue for many delightful holidays in this beautiful setting.

Nestling at the head of Coniston Water, the pretty village of Coniston is surrounded by some of the most beautiful scenery in the Lake District National Park, making it a superb base for touring, with Hawkshead, Ambleside, Windermere and Grasmere just a short drive away. Superb walking, mountain biking and climbing are available locally on Coniston Old Man and Wetherlam, and the lovely woodland trails at Grizedale Forest. For watersports enthusiasts, the quiet lake is ideal for dinghy sailing and canoeing, whilst the less active can enjoy a leisure cruise on the beautiful steam yacht 'Gondola’, or visit Brantwood, the former home of John Ruskin.
