Station Master's House description

Holiday home
Station Master's House, formerly the railway station for the hamlet of Torver, is a spacious, semi-detached cottage, just 2.5 miles from Coniston and can sleep five people. This all ground floor cottage has a double bedroom, a family room with a double bed and a single bed, a shower room, a kitchen with breakfast table, a sitting room with dining area and a shared utility. Outside there is off road parking for two cars and shared gardens with furniture. Station Master's House is a wonderful holiday base.

Nestling at the head of Coniston Water, the pretty village of Coniston is surrounded by some of the most beautiful scenery in the Lake District National Park and makes a superb base for touring, with Hawkshead, Ambleside and Windermere just a short drive away. Superb walking, mountain biking and climbing is available locally on Coniston Old Man and Wetherlam, and the lovely woodland trails at Grizedale Forest. For water sports enthusiasts the quiet lake is ideal for dinghy sailing and canoeing, whilst the less active can enjoy a leisure cruise on the beautiful steam yacht ‘Gondola'.

Impressive mountains, open fells and clear-water lakes, the Lake District has it all. From walking in the mountains to exhilarating watersports or just a gentle cruise on a steam-powered yacht, Cumbria is the perfect holiday destination.

This was a very nice cottage. Everything we could wish for. It's well located, on a main road but quiet. Plenty of information about the area available. We would certainly recommend it and will be booking here again in the future.

A fantastic cottage in a quiet location near a couple of good pubs and a small shop. It was within walking distance of the lake which was an ideal place for our dog also, there were plenty of routes to take. Would definitely look to book here again in the future.
Mrs Patel

Everything was perfect; the location, garden and the fact that we could take the dog. We will be booking again.

The cottage is in a excellent location to enjoy walks and to explore the country side. There is also local pubs that serve excellent food. The cottage is clean and spacious and also dog friendly. We will definitely be returning.

Station Master's House was excellent, not only in location but in itself. It was a great bonus that it was dog friendly which made our stay all the more enjoyable.

What a lovely cottage, we can't wait to go back! The cottage was everything and more that we wanted; immaculate and so comfortable and it's in an excellent location with a great pub next door!
Mr Wallace

It was spacious and well proportioned accommodation and dog friendly. It was well situated to local pubs and there were plenty of paths off road in all directions to walk without having to drive.

The photos don't do this property justice. It was far better than we imagined, probably one of the best places we have stayed in. It made an excellent base from which to explore the Lakes and visit places of interest.

We loved it here, it is our second year visiting and we have had two brilliant holidays. A home from home. Perfect location for exploring the area. Look forward to coming over again.

The cottage was lovely and the location excellent for getting to all areas of the Lake District. We enjoyed the walk from the cottage to Coniston. We can also recommend the two nearby pubs for meals.

The Station Master's House is absolutely lovely! We loved it so much we can't wait to be able to book again for next year! It's beautifully clean and comfortable! The beds are super comfy and the house is well stocked with pretty much anything you might need, including walking sticks for hiking. The gardens and pond are beautiful and the Lake District was magical.

The cottage was spacious warm and in a good location for visiting Lake District. The pub was very convenient. It was nice to be able to sit outside go for walks.
Mrs Hopkins

A lovely area to explore other places in Cumbria. I found the cottage very easy to get around as I have mobility problems and the shower was easy for me as well. My daughters came with me and we had a good week and would recommend to others.

A lovely property equipped with everything you could possibly need. A beautiful garden with lots of sun coverage throughout the day. Public walkway to Coniston right outside of back gate pub directly across road was fabulous too.

Fantastic enclosed gardens with a beautiful setting.
Mr Pratt

This was a lovely holiday cottage, a real home from home. We couldn't fault it if we tried. Everything was just like home, with little touches and loads of character. The only thing we did not like was having to leave at the end!
December 2016
Just returned from a stay at the cottage over the Christmas period. The cottage has everything you need for a really comfortable stay, the place has a really warm and cosy feel to it, even though the rooms are a good size. The kitchen was very good, we cooked a full Christmas dinner with ease with all mod cons and gadgets. Good position in the village for 2 quality pubs, serving great food and a small deli over the road. Good walks from the front door including the Old man of Coniston. The cottage next door which is attached, looked equally good as one bedroom place. Brilliant stay would recommend it.
May 2016
Nicely presented cottage with two large bedrooms and plenty of space to spread out. Nicely fitted kitchen with all required facilities .Good sized garden on the old track bed and railway platform . The drive and garden are shared with next door , but it's not really a problem. Very handy for two pubs both of which serve good beer and food. Small deli across the road which is very handy. Very near to Coniston which has all amenities
December 2016
We have stayed here 3 years on the trot now and each time it has been lovely. The cottage is perfect, an old railway station with the remains of the platform where we sat to have breakfast/lunch/drinks. Ideal place from which to explore the beautiful Lake District and to return to after a busy day. Cottage is very well appointed and has everything needed, very much a home from home.
Mrs Hayes
May 2016
The property was roomy and very well appointed and the location was excellent. Despite being on a main road, once in the property and in its lovely garden it was very tranquil and relaxing. We loved seeing the birds and the rabbits in the garden. It was nice being able to go on walks straight from the cottage. The proximity of the two pubs and deli was great.
