- Large property
- Village location
- Great for groups & families
Close to all the village amenities stands a Victorian terrace, of tall and thin properties called Dixon Ground. Right on the footpath to the Old Man of Coniston and Levers Water, and on the foothills of the crags behind, these cottages are well situated for walkers keen to get straight onto the fells.
Number 1 is the end of terrace property. Coming in the backdoor takes you into the kitchen. A modern well equipped kitchen with slate worktops and island workstation is on hand for all your cooking needs; there's even an old spinning wheel in the window. The adjacent dining area has the flexibility to seat up to 12 and retains some of its original features - an old wooden floor and unusual built-in wooden drawers. The living room has a large and light bay window with an equally large leather sofa in it. A great spot of diving into your holiday read. There's plenty of other seating, positioned strategically around the fire. A hidden doorway leads upstairs to two floors of accommodation. On the first floor, there's a bright double with views up the Coppermines Valley plus two more bedrooms. Up another floor there's a twin with views up the Coniston fells and again rooms for another three people. With so many rooms, Number 1 is best suited to home large groups - of friends, extended families, walkers or just big get-togethers!
