Quality Assessed

A stone built village cottage for up to 4 guests which is close to amenities and with stunning walks, such as Coniston Old Man, from the door

Close to all the village amenities stands a tall and thin Victorian terrace, Dixon Ground. Perfectly positioned on the footpath to the Old Man of Coniston and Levers Water, and on the foothills of the crags behind, these terraced cottages are well situated for walkers, bikers and explorers keen to get straight onto the fells.

Number 4 is the smallest property at the very end of the terrace, up the gravelled path. The house, sleeping 4 is perfect for couples or small families however if you have a bigger group, you could also take over Number 1 Dixon Ground just two doors down which will sleep an extra 10 in 4 bedrooms, thus extending the sleeping capacity and allowing groups of up to 14 to be comfortably accommodated. Ideal for those big family get-togethers and celebrations.

Though centrally located, with a pub within rolling distance, the Dixon Ground Cottages are pleasantly peaceful. In essence Number 4 would suit families with young children or couples looking to relax and enjoy the local area.

Ground floor
The kitchen with dining table for four greets you as you come in through the backdoor. The kitchen although small in size is very well equipped with double electric oven & hob, microwave, dishwasher, fridge & freezer.

The living room with its exposed beams has a large open fireplace with a strategically positioned leather sofa, perfect for curling up in front of the TV or settling down to a DVD on a cold winters night.

An old wooden staircase separates the kitchen from living room - if you're tall, mind you head on the beams as you go up.

First floor
Upstairs there are a couple of bedrooms. The master has a four-poster bed and there's another double, which has a spare single, but these beds are better for smaller people.

Bedroom 1 - king size 4-poster bed.

Bedroom 2 - 4' three-quarter bed & single bed.

Bathroom with WC bath & shower.

Traditional Victorian shared cottage garden to the front of the property with gravelled terraces & garden furniture.

Due to the nature of the garden we ask that all young children are supervised in the garden area.

Coniston is simply an excellent base for any Lake District holiday. The village is packed with friendly pubs, local shops and lively cafes and there is incredible walking straight from the village centre, including the iconic Coniston Old Man. The village enjoys ample access to Coniston Water lake shore, with Coniston Boating Centre offering paddle-boarding, kayaking, sailing and more. There are also plenty of opportunities for wild-swimming including the lake, beautiful mountain tarns and the picturesque Church Beck river with its stunning waterfalls and deep, crystal clear pools. For cyclists, there are spectacular off-road mountain biking trails including those at nearby Grizedale Forest, as well as some stunning road routes through some of the country's most beautiful scenery.

For those who enjoy a quieter pace, The Ruskin Museum, which depicts the fascinating history of the area including the famous water speed record attempt of Donald Campbell is a must visit. While on the eastern shores of the lake lies Brantwood, the Victorian home of John Ruskin, where visitors can explore the historic house and vibrant arts centre and enjoy some delicious food from The Terrace cafe with its breath-taking lake and mountain views.

The wider Lake District area is also very easily accessible from Coniston, with popular destinations such as Ambleside, Bowness and Windermere just a short drive away.

In short, Coniston offers everything you could possibly want of a Lake District holiday - all right on your doorstep.

Thoroughly enjoyable stay in a very good cottage in a quiet location. Very clean and tidy. Good car parking. Walked from the door every day - no need to use the car at all.
