Quality Assessed

Newly decorated and refurbished for April 2021, Byre Cottage is a cosy and characterful abode set on a traditional Lakeland hill farm overlooking the beautiful Woodland Valley.

Just 10 minutes' drive from Coniston village. Lovingly reconstructed from the original 17th century byre, the Byre Cottage offers cosy yet comfortable rooms with rustic exposed beams, log fires and countryside views.

Access to the cottage is gained through the main farmyard, dotted with blossoming flowers during the spring & summer months.

The Byre Cottage is perfect for those looking to experience a glimpse of traditional Lakeland life. Sleeping 6 guests comfortably, the cottage can also be booked alongside neighbouring Millers Cottage which together can accommodate up to 12 guests. A great base for families, outdoor enthusiasts, nature lovers and those wishing to simply switch off from the busy day-to-day.

Ground Floor
Traditional Lakeland porch opens into entrance hall, from here guests can access the cosy cottage sitting & dining room complete with Lakeland stone fireplace, Tv, Dvd & Cd player.

Just off the sitting room is the kitchen with dishwasher, microwave, electric cooker, fridge/freezer & washer/dryer.

There is also a small shower room with WC on the ground floor.

Local Activities

Woodland, Torver and the Duddon Valley, a beautiful and tranquil area well worth visiting and exploring. The landscapes here have changed little over time, with farming and forestry still very much in evidence. In springtime the nearby woods that dot the landscape are carpeted with wild garlic and scented bluebells, and away from the noise of the traffic the wildlife and bird song can be truly appreciated.
The area is very popular with walkers and cyclists of all abilities who enjoy escaping the central Lakes crowds. Peaks such as the Old Man of Coniston, Caw Fell and Greyfriar can all be accessed from the area. Should you be looking for something a little less challenging then the idyllic Lickle Valley, the Dunnerdale Fells and Beacon Tarn are all popular walking spots.

Great location for a mountain biking weekend. Lovely cottage, comfortable beds and hot showers. Owners very friendly and little touches like preparing the fire for our arrival did not go unnoticed. Great overall service. Highly recommend.

Lovely cottage suitable for our party size (6 adults & 2 infants), in a great location not far from all the key Lake District sights and nicely outside of the busy tourist villages. Great, helpful and friendly host.

Welcoming owner. Lovely warm, cosy cottage. Delightful and peaceful walking from the cottage in the Woodland Valley and over to Broughton Moor.
