No. 6 The Forge is nestled within a row of cosy terraced cottages, originally built to house the copper miners working in the beautiful valley above in the 19th century. This stone and slate built cottage has the advantageous position of being set back from the hustle and bustle of Coniston, yet is only a few minutes' walk from the village centre.
No.6 is a cosy, romantic hideaway made especially for two. Bright and modern this quaint cottage has been lovingly cared for by its owners who have lavished much care on its restoration. There is a secret secluded garden to the rear of the property, perfect for sitting out and admiring the dramatic backdrop of the surrounding fells, along with a tumbling beck to the front.

No.6 The Forge is home to a very special 'secret garden'. A wildly roaming haven with lawn, trees and wild flowers. A private haven from which to soak in the views, enjoy a summers BBQ or simply run around with the dog.
