The Bridge Cottages are some the oldest buildings in the village of Coniston. Over 300 years, they have formerly been the village post office, a butcher and around the beginning of the 1900s, a well-known restaurant. Though centrally located for all the goodies Coniston has to offer, The Bridge House Cottages are pleasantly secluded and peaceful.

The Bridge Cottages: Bridge House, Old Post, Bridge Suite are 3 inter-linking cottages which together comfortable accommodate up to 16 guests across 8 bedrooms and 7 bathrooms. Bridge House features a large lounge and kitchen/dining room making this property the perfect choice for those big family get-togethers and celebrations. The cottages also come the use of three exclusive hot tubs.

The Bridge Cottages are ideally situated in the centre of Coniston and just a short walk from the church, local stores, gift shops, cafe's and numerous pubs. Popular valley and mountain walks including the Old Man of Coniston & Tarn Hows can be accessed from the front door and the lake shore is less than a 15 minute stroll away.

Bridge House

A slated entrance leads you into a huge kitchen/dining room, which can seat up to 20. Double hobs, ovens and slate work tops makes catering for big groups easy and hopefully hassle-free! The kitchen is fully fitted with gas range cooker & large hob, dishwasher, microwave, washing machine, dryer & fridge/freezer.

The sitting room has ample space for the largest of groups to relax comfortably in. The central focus of the room is the impressive slate log fire, perfect for admiring on a cold winters night. There is also a TV & DVD player to keep the little (and big) ones entertained.

To help keep the living areas tidy the house also benefits from a cloakroom, perfect for wet jackets, boots and bags.

There is also a separate WC, helpful should you just need to nip in from the hot tub.
