In this technology driven day and age it’s not uncommon for us all to feel a little run down, tired and generally anxious. We constantly rush through life without stopping to take notice of what effect this has on our wellbeing.
Sound familiar? If you’re feeling this way then it may be time to take a step back from your everyday routine. Take time out, reset and recharge.
It is proven that by simply paying more attention to our own thoughts and feelings in the present moment, and focusing on the natural world around us can have a positive impact on your overall mental wellbeing.
Here at The Coppermines Lakes Cottages we have an array of cosy cottages dotted throughout the Lakes offering all who visit the chance to press pause, switch off and drink in their surroundings even if just for a couple of days.
Our perfect places …
Hollin Bank Barn, Nr. Coniston
Sitting above Monk Coniston lies 300 year old Hollin Bank Barn. If you're coming to the Lake District, then you can't overlook this cottage. It enjoys breath-taking views, looking south along the length of Coniston Water. From this homely base you could quite easily just wallow in the view, and not do anything else, it is that astonishing. Sleeping 6, this much loved family home is warm & comfortable and the best bit sans Wi-Fi so you really can switch off from the distractions of everyday life. Should you or your company desperately need an injection of civilisation then the delightful village of Coniston is a mere 5 minute drive away. The real gem is the cottage garden which makes this cottage so irresistible. Dry stone walls surround the garden, keeping the local Herdwick sheep out. Tall pines shelter the woodpeckers you may hear and rhododendrons add seasonal colour. And at the bottom of the garden, there are table and chairs in arguably the best position of any such furniture in the area.
