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.

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

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.

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.
