Situated on the Eastern side of Coniston Water, Fisherbeck Fold forms part of a quaint 17th Century Lakeland Farmhouse. The original farmhouse has been sympathetically split into two lovely Lakeland properties. The two properties Fisherbeck Fold & Fisherbeck Nest can be let individually, sleeping 4 respectively or together as one larger property sleeping 8.
This deceptively spacious ground floor apartment has been tastefully renovated by the owners yet still manages to maintain its period charm. Offering spectacular panoramic views across to The Old Man of Coniston and Coniston Water this cosy hideaway is the perfect base for couples, friends and families alike. A mere 15-20 minutes' walk into Coniston village means that this property really does enjoy the best of both worlds.
For larger groups Fisherbeck Fold can be adjoined to Fisherbeck Nest which would give larger families and groups the ability to sleep 8 combined across two floors and 4 bedrooms.
Shared entrance hall with boot & coat storage, guests will also have use of the shared utility area within the entrance hall which houses a washer dryer.
Front door to Fisherbeck Fold leading which leads into the light and airy kitchen & dining area with double electric oven, gas hob, fridge freezer, microwave & dishwasher.
From the kitchen the property extends into the inviting sitting room with original beamed ceiling, comfortable seating, gas fire with Cumberland slate fire surround, TV, DVD & panoramic views across Coniston Water to the village and fells beyond.

About Coniston Village
In the heart of the English Lake District lies the historical copper mining village of Coniston, perfectly positioned alongside the picturesque Coniston Water and underneath the majestic Coniston Fells of which Coniston Old Man, 2635ft, is the most famous.
Today the village is welcoming, warm and friendly. The two Victorian streets still house traditional shops such as the village butcher, grocer, bakery, newsagent, dairy, five pubs, several cafes and highly acclaimed restaurant (Steam Bistro), so there’s enough to keep you occupied during your time here.
