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.

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.

Thwaite Cottage is perfect for our family. We are 8 adults and 1 dog. The rooms with our own bathrooms are also perfect. The living room and dining area is so spacious and affords plenty of room for us all to spread out. The kitchen is the best equipped one we have ever had in a holiday cottage. The aga works perfectly. The cottage is convenient for the village but set back in a quiet private lane meaning no traffic or late night noise. This has been our third stay and will certainly return.

Excellent cottage, very comfortable for an age range of 6 months to 70. Very good help from your office staff.

We had a lovely stay in this beautiful home! We particularly enjoyed the little sitting areas and the open plan kitchen. Getting to know the AGA was also an unexpected treat.

We absolutely loved Thwaite Cottage. It was so comfortable; and full of character. The surroundings are stunning; the garden lovely and peaceful. The kitchen is equipped with everything you could possibly need or want, and the modern bathrooms and conveniences make this very old cottage feel very new indeed. The dark skies, peaceful location and proximity to the lake and the lovely town of Coniston made for a perfect family holiday. We would love to return.

One of the nicest cottages we have used, combines beautiful period features with modern convenience. We all commented on how well the cottage provided for needs and appreciated all the crockery and cutlery. Bedrooms are really well appointed and lovely bathrooms and powerful showers complete the super experience. The lovely Coniston Inn being moments away meant this cottage ticked all the boxes for us.
