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 yet still manages to maintain its period charm. Offering spectacular views across to The Old Man of Coniston and Coniston Water from the sitting room window, 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.
Shared entrance hall, guests will also have use of the shared utility area which houses a washer dryer.
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 slate fire surround, TV, DVD & views across Coniston Water to the village and fells beyond.

Bedroom 2 - twin beds.
