A gorgeous little attached cottage, totally refurbished, with a hot tub in the garden, views to Coniston Old Man, and at the heart of Torver Village, next to the famous Wilson Arms.

For many years the Mayvers family have been providing good food, refreshment and excellent hospitality in Torver, and now the next 'generation' have lovingly restored and refurbished this little old cottage.

Food and refreshments maybe easily served from the pub, and transport is available, by arrangement, from Windermere railway Station, prior to your arrival.

The cottage has been restored with a wealth of local natural materials, including oak and slate floors, and oak doors.

In essence No.3 Wilsons is the perfect retreat for couples, friends and small families alike.

Local Activities
Torver and the nearby Crake & Woodland Valleys, are beautiful and tranquil areas well worth visiting and exploring. The landscapes here have changed little over time, with farming and forestry still very much in evidence. In springtime the nearby woods that dot the landscape are carpeted with wild garlic and scented bluebells, and away from the noise of the traffic the wildlife and bird song can be truly appreciated.

The area is very popular with walkers and cyclists of all abilities who enjoy escaping the central Lakes crowds.  Peaks such as the Old Man of Coniston, can be accessed from the area. Should you be looking for something a little less challenging then the idyllic Torver Common or nearby Beacon Tarn are all popular walking spots.

For cycling enthusiasts there are some fantastic trails to be found in the area and the delights of Grizedale Forest are only a short ride away. For runners of all abilities the Lakeland Trail series visits Coniston village yearly offering 5k, 10k, marathon and half marathon options. A favourite events amongst visitors and locals is the annual Coniston 14, 13.9 miles of scenic beauty as runners of all ages lap Coniston Water. 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.

Customer Comments

We booked the dog friendly cottage for a week and had a really good time. Even the weather stayed pretty good for all the walks we enjoyed. We did not need to use the car because there are many walks just by stepping outside the cottage. The cottage was lovely and nicely furnished and came with a 50 inch TV in lounge, tv in both upstairs bedrooms. The garden was secure and private for our dog. The gate at the rear of the garden takes you to the pub garden. On arrival there was butter and milk in the fridge and a loaf of bread on the table. Very likely from the deli attached to the pub. There is also a covered hot tub outside in the garden exclusively ours, which is great after some of the long walks we did. Pub is dog friendly and food is very good. There is another pub just a few yards away, so a great area for a stay. Would we go back again to same place and accommodation?? The answer is a definite yes.
