Crag Cottage is in the middle of a terrace of Grade II listed, 18th century cottages spectacularly situated under Yewdale Crag at the 'Far End' of the village of Coniston.

Built of Lakeland stone with thick walls and an open fire, it is the epitome of a traditional Lakeland cottage. Although over two hundred years old the cottage is cosy and well equipped with gas central heating and Wi-Fi connection.

As well as its delightful character and charm, what makes Crag cottage special is its superb location. Perched right on the fells, the Cumbrian Way footpath and cycle route runs behind the cottage giving direct access onto the Old Man, Wetherlam and longer walks/rides further afield. The cottage is also less than a 5 minute walk away from Coniston's numerous pubs, cafes and shops.

A charming cottage perfect for couples, friends and small families.

Ground floor
You enter the cottage through a little porch which is an ideal place to dry out walking boots and damp clothes. The cosy oak beamed living room is divided by a large, comfortable sofa into a seating area with open fire and a dining area large enough for 6. A large selection of games, maps, books and DVDs for the Smart TV are also provided.

The well equipped kitchen (New Feb 2019) is situated at the back of the cottage, here you will find an electric cooker, dishwasher, microwave, washing machine/dryer, fridge/freezer, and toaster. From the kitchen you can access the back door and walk straight out onto the fells. Perfect for four legged guests.

First floor
Upstairs there are two charming bedrooms with beautiful views; a bathroom and a separate toilet. Both bedrooms enjoy high quality bed linen and bedding.

Bedroom 1 - super king size bed (or twin single beds).
Bedroom 2 - king size bed.

There is a small patio to the front of the cottage which acts as a little sun trap and has a bench and table to enjoy the seasonal views across the fields and woods to Grizedale Forest and the lake in winter.

There is also secure storage for up to 4 bicycles in the outhouse at the back of the property.
