The Experience

Through fields and woodland down a narrow lane lined with mossy stone walls is your three-storey 19th-century cottage. Perfect for a couple seeking a romantic break, it has fresh, mostly white decor and is filled with high-quality furniture and fabrics. Original beams and the wood-burner add character and a homely feel, and the smart kitchen with its top-notch appliances is a great place to relax and cook. If you have a couple of friends in tow the adjoining converted barn is also yours, the two lovely sitting rooms with their wood-burners cleverly linked. Bedrooms – one on the ground floor, one on the top floor of the barn – are light, bright and stylishly furnished with big comfy beds. One has a roll-top bath in the room, en–suite shower room and views over to the woodland beyond, the other a separate shower room and light flooding through a Velux window. You’re in a walker’s paradise here, with Coppermine Valley and Coniston Old Man within strolling distance, but there are also mountain bike trails right by your door, Coniston village with its great pubs is a short stroll away and Coniston Water is close.

My husband proposed to me at the cottage 5 years ago! The cottage is BEAUTIFUL - there's absolutely nothing I can fault. Perfectly furnished to an impeccable standard, the cottage is the perfect backdrop for a romantic or peaceful getaway. Can't recommend enough.

Local points of interest from Angela Gatland

  • The Lake District National Park, one of the most beautiful parts of England, where you will find our highest mountain Scafell Pike, its deepest lake Wastwater, over 20 lakes, numerous tarns and waterfalls with beautiful and dramatic scenery at every turn.
  • The Lake District is now recognised as a UNESCO world Heritage site. Spend active days exploring waterfalls, hiking the fells, mountain biking or riding the winding roads. Enjoy watersports in an original Swallows And Amazons setting or try a Via Ferata
  • Nestled in the village of Coniston is our secluded 19th century former coach house. With your beautiful kitchen, two bedrooms two shower rooms, two lounges and a private garden, it's the perfect Lake District getaway for one or two couples.
  • Within walking distance of the lake, hire a rowing boat, take the Steam Yacht Gondola or enjoy lunch on the shore. Drop off at the jetty at Brantwood and explore John Ruskin’s gardens and museum and enjoy afternoon tea on the terrace with stunning views.
  • Coachman’s is ideally located, leave you car behind, enjoy walks and bridleways from our door step, walk up the fell side or stroll down to the village to enjoy a meal at our local pub with it’s own brewery or one of the restaurants or cafes.
  • The picturesque iconic Lakeland villages of Hawkshead, Grasmere and Ambleside are a short drive away as is Beatrix Potter’s home and many National Trust attractions. The Lakes are a foodie heaven, book a meal at one of the many high quality restaurants.
