As you climb out of Coniston on the road heading towards Hawkshead, lies the charming 300 year old Hollin Bank Barn. If you're coming to the Lake District primarily to enjoy the views, then you can't overlook this cottage. It has simply breath-taking views, looking south down along length of Coniston Water. You could quite easily just wallow in the view, and not do anything else, it is that astonishing.

Perfectly positioned this comfortable cottage really does enjoy the best of both worlds. Peace and seclusion yet only a few minutes' drive from all local amenities. Outdoor enthusiasts will marvel in the plethora of footpaths and cycle ways accessible from the front door, including the delights of the nearby Grizedale Forest and Tarn Hows.

In essence Hollin Bank Barn is a charming Lakeland cottage, perfectly suited for couples, friends and families alike.

Ground floor
From the garden you immediately enter the modern fitted kitchen and dining area. Well-appointed the kitchen benefits from electric cooker, fridge/freezer, microwave, washing machine, wood burning stove, exposed beams & French doors which lead out to the fantastic garden.

Just off the kitchen there's also a cosy twin bedroom and separate shower room.

Bedroom 1 - twin single beds.

First floor
Up past the old watercolours, leads to the landing complete with an old drying rack suspended from the ceiling. The sitting room is on this floor but there is a reason for this - you just need to look out of the windows to work it out.

The furniture in the sitting room can't decide whether to be positioned in front of the wood burner or in front of the windows looking out over Coniston Water. Complete with comfortable seating, TV & DVD player this room is perfect for relaxing following a day of exploring.

Upstairs there are also two additional bedrooms, the house bathroom and a door out to the garden.

Bedroom 2 - double sleigh bed.
Bedroom 3 - king size bed (or twin 2'6" single beds).
House bathroom - with hand basin, WC and bath with shower over.

Outside
It really is the garden with its views that 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. At the bottom of the garden, there are table and chairs in arguably the best position of any such furniture in the area.

The garden also benefits from a shed, perfect for storing bikes & other outdoor equipment.

Travelling with a dog?
We can offer free use of a 1 acre enclosed field in Coniston village, perfect for off the lead running, walking, training and playing. Use by arrangement only. Please contact the office for availability.

Facilities included
Bed linen, towels, electricity, gas central heating & initial logs for the fire.

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.

However 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 and on the eastern shores of the lake lies Brantwood the Victorian home of philosopher John Ruskin, where regular events and art courses are held. Should you just wish to relax during your time here then the tremendous landscape of cascading waterfalls, streams, lakes and mountains should help you switch off from modern life.

Charming cottage with amazing views and a lovely garden for the kids to play in. Loved the layout of the cottage.

Beautiful views and cottage. Lovely base for days out.
L.N May 2018

We have absolutely fallen in love with Hollin Bank Barn. Returning after 10 years, we will definitely be returning to this beautiful area. We live in a very old cottage attached to a Quaker Meeting House (1729) and love the quirkiness of an older property so it has felt like a home away from home. The cottage was perfectly clean and fresh on arrival and has everything you'd need.

M.W April 2018

Lovely, lovely cottage. Of course the views cannot be beat! Our first visit to the Lake District and the view of the lake was the perfect way to start and end each day. History of the cottage very interesting and we loved the tasteful d?cor and the paintings done by family.
