This charming Grade II listed cottage is in a lovely peaceful location at the foot of the fell, close to the village and the lake. For some years it was used almost exclusively by the present owners and their family and is furnished and equipped to a high standard.
It is ideally situated for fell walkers. A public footpath by the side of the cottage gives access to the Coniston, Yewdale and Furness fells and is one of the starting points for some of the more demanding high level walks in the area which includes the Old Man of Coniston, Swirl How and Wetherlam.
For the less energetic there are numerous low level walks and an abundance of visitor attractions within easy travelling distance. Tarn Hows, a classic beauty spot near Coniston, is within easy walking distance and boat trips on the lake are always popular.
Far End is no more than a few minutes walk from the village where there are a good selection of shops and a number of pubs all of which serve excellent bar meals.
The cottage has the benefit of full gas central heating.
There are two double and two single bedrooms.
There is an open fire, flat screen television and DVD player in the cosy sitting room / diner.
The fully fitted kitchen incorporates a Bosch electric oven and hob, microwave and an integral fridge with freezer compartment.
There is a double length mixer shower in the bathroom. Hot water is on demand - not stored. The towel rail is heated by the central heating system but can be switched on electrically if needed.
There is a small paved sitting out area outside the front door.
Coniston with its backdrop of the Old Man of Coniston and its proximity to the lake is an ideal base for a holiday in the Lake District and if you decide to book we have every confidence that you will enjoy your stay.
Bed linen, tea towels and a bath mat
A cot / high chair if required
We allow dogs in all of our cottages subject to our usual conditions – guaranteed house clean, confined to the ground floor and not allowed on the furniture. We make a charge of £10 for a dog.
One off road parking space in the parking area opposite the front door is allocated to the cottage.
Bookings, deposits and balance due dates:
If the cottage is booked less than six weeks ahead the full balance will be due to Cottages Direct at the time of booking. If the cottage is booked more than six weeks ahead, the booker will be required to pay Cottages Direct commission of 10% of the tariff price plus VAT by credit or debit card. This will be deducted from the tariff price.
A deposit payment of one third of the net tariff price (after deduction of the 10% + VAT commission) will then be required by the cottage owners before a booking is confirmed. The balance will be due one month before the start of a stay.
