A charming & idyllic hideaway situated on the eastern side of Coniston Water.

With an elevated position above the lake, Badger's Cottage offers breath-taking lake and mountain views towards the village and the dramatic Coniston Fells beyond.

Refurbished to an exceptionally high standard, the layout of the cottage allows for a most comfortable stay. Whilst perfectly sized for two, this spacious retreat offers guests a warm, welcoming, romantic sanctuary, perfect for any Lake District adventure.

Enjoying the best of both worlds, the cottage is ideally positioned to enjoy the beauty and tranquillity of the Lake District with the plentiful amenities of Coniston village just a mile away. Further delights such as the charming village of Hawkshead, favoured by Beatrix Potter, or the recognisable skyline of the Langdale Valley are also within a short drive.

In essence Badger's Cottage offers couples a delightful, unique and comfortable base, conveniently situated for enjoying the very best of the beautiful Lake District.

Badger's Cottage is also next to Mole's Cottage which sleeps 2.

Ground Floor

Reached by a number of steps (9) from the adjacent car-parking area, once inside, everything is on one level with just 3 steps down to the bedroom.

Entrance is through the sunroom, which offers a place to enjoy a cuppa whilst admiring the view, and also space to store shoes and coats. From the sunroom you enter into the inviting open plan lounge and kitchen-diner.

The pleasant lounge benefits from fantastic lake and mountain views, with comfy seating, wood burning stove, Free Sat TV & DVD player. This the perfect place to relax with a coffee, a glass of wine or simply to sit and daydream after a day on the lake or exploring the mountains.

The modern cottage kitchen offers plenty of space for the most discerning of kitchen wizards. Well appointed, the kitchen benefits from electric oven and hob, fridge with small freezer compartment, microwave & dishwasher.

From the living area three steps lead down to the bedroom and modern en suite. The romantic bedroom accommodates a king size bed from which you can wake to enjoy the mountain views. The en suite bathroom offers a walk in wet room shower, W.C & basin. A washer dryer is cleverly tucked into the bathroom design.  


Guests will have use of a lovely & private slate paved patio with garden furniture, immediately accessible from the sunroom. Why not enjoy morning coffee or dine al fresco, surrounded by those inspiring views.

Local Activities

Coniston is an excellent centre for outdoor enthusiasts, with some superb climbing, walking, water sports, fishing and cycling to be had all year round.
For cycling enthusiasts there are some fantastic trails to be found in the area and the delights of Grizedale Forest are only a short ride away. For runners of all abilities the Lakeland Trail series visits Coniston yearly offering 5k, 10k, marathon and half marathon options. A favourite event amongst visitors and locals is the annual Coniston 14, 13.9 miles of scenic beauty as runners of all ages lap Coniston Water. For endurance athletes the Montane Lakeland 100 & Lakeland 50 events depart from Coniston each July and a whole host of water sports can be enjoyed down at the boating centre. Lastly for those who come to walk the area, no trip to Coniston would be complete without a climb up the Old Man of Coniston.
For those who like to keep their feet firmly on the ground there's The Ruskin Museum, which depicts the fascinating history of the area including the famous water speed record attempt of Donald Campbell. A mile down the road, on the eastern shores of the lake, lies Brantwood, the home of Victorian philosopher John Ruskin. Open to visitors and with a new cafe, regular events and art courses are held here. Should you just wish to relax during your Lake District sojourn then the tremendous landscape of cascading waterfalls, streams, lakes and mountains should help you switch off from modern life. Delights such as Tarn Hows and Grizedale Forest are nearby and prove to be ever popular with visitors of all ages.

Beautiful accommodation. Well laid out, clean modern and comfortable. The views are sublime and the local walks are incredible. The cottage has everything. It has been a dream break. There is nothing you could improve upon, it is more than perfect. Thank you.

This was our first time visiting the Lakes and our first time in a self-catered cottage. We walked in and were amazed. The place was spotless and beautiful. Stunning views from a comfortable seating area. So much to use in the kitchen, everything we could need. Benefits of a washing machine so everything could be taken home, ready to put away. The refurbishment has to be praised. Everything is in perfect working order, it truly felt like a home from home.
