Swallows Nest Countryside Cottage description

Holiday home
Swallows Nest is a lovely first floor flat in Coniston. With a king-size double bedroom, with en-suite, it sleeps two comfortably. The open plan living area comprises a kitchen, dining area and sitting area, while outside there is a patio with furniture and roadside parking. Swallows Nest is just five minutes' walk from Coniston Water, and with the Old man on Coniston close by, there is great walking in the area.

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.

We were delighted with Swallow's Nest. Everything was immaculate, and there were lots of unexpected extras. The location was ideal for us, as it was close to cafes, shops etc.

Swallow's Nest was very quiet and extremely comfortable. The location is just right and the view out of the bedroom window was always inviting and impressive. The spacious bathroom was much appreciated, as was the very comfortable bed and lounges. Free WiFi was excellent. Thanks a lot; we loved our stay there and would definitely come back, it was excellent value for money.

The accommodation was spotless - couldn't fault a thing. Everything worked properly and we were very comfortable. Fixtures and furnishings were all good quality and the WiFi worked well too - and a good phone signal! The location is excellent for local walks and sights and there are some lovely places to eat within an easy walk.

An extremely well furnished and equipped apartment. A fantastic location in the town with plenty of places to eat and drink, and lots of walks without having to drive. Can thoroughly recommend Coniston as a base for exploring the Lake District.

Swallow's Nest was the perfect Lakes location, with easy access to good walking, lovely scenery and good facilities and attractions in Coniston. The apartment was beautifully appointed with all the comforts we needed for a top week. We especially appreciated the very helpful maps, walking guides and books that were available. They really helped us plan our days out. Highly recommended.
