Just south of Coniston village, Sunny Brae Cottage was built in the 19th century, on the site of The Penny Ale House used by the community of workers from Coniston Hall. These days, if you fancy a drink, you'll have to visit the local, The Ship Inn, which is just up the road.

From its superb positioning the delights of Coniston village & the lake shore can be accessed easily via footpaths through fields or along the old railway line. Alternatively should you be looking for something a bit more challenging then there's also plenty of easy access onto the fells and the Old Man of Coniston.

Enjoying the very best of both worlds, Sunny Brae is perfect for couples, families & friends!

Ground floor
There's an ornate porch, handy for muddy boots and outdoor gear that welcomes and leads you into the cosy living room. Leather sofas surround the wood-burning stove and the big sash window looks over to the garden opposite. There's a TV & DVD player in here too should the views or the endless outdoor adventures tire you out.

The large dining kitchen can easily accommodate five diners, and has all the mod cons you'll need, gas hob & oven, dishwasher, fridge/freezer, digital radio with iPod dock, microwave & washer dryer. The window seat in here provides the perfect place to sit and daydream.

First floor
Bedroom 1 - double bed & en-suite shower room with WC.
Bedroom 2 - twin single beds & en-suite bathroom with air spa bath, shower & WC.
Bedroom 3 - single bed & en-suite shower room with WC.

Outside
Across the quiet lane is the idyllic cottage garden. Enclosed, with mature seasonal planting, lawn and a decked area with barbecue, this is a beautiful secluded sanctuary, allowing guests somewhere to relax and enjoy the views of fells and mountains.
