  • Romantic hideaway
  • Bike storage & large garden
  • Convenient location

Hidden away up the quiet lane past and next to the Ship Inn, just south of Coniston, is this C18th farmhouse. Now a beautifully refurbished quintessential cottage, where traditional meets modern. Bowmanstead is perfect for romantics, small families and outdoor enthusiasts.

A typical Lakeland porch invites you into the property and doubles up as an ideal place to leave your walking boots. There's even a stone bench to help. The living room is full of charm and character - beamed ceiling, massive stone hearth with real fireplace, big slate flags covered with rugs & a big cosy leather sofa ideal for curling up in. Up a couple of steps is a separate raised dining area with oak detailing, Lakeland prints adorn the walls and antique furniture complements the properties quirky character. By contrast there is a modern galley kitchen, with handcrafted slate worktops, big gas range, a lovely view to the courtyard out front & small homely touches lovingly chosen by the owner.

From the living room, there's a hidden narrow stairwell that leads you up, past the pictures of Herdwick sheep, to a landing with low beams (mind your head!). There's a very modern and chic bathroom with motion sensor lighting, with a comfortable double or twin bedroom next door. The master bedroom has a magnificent four-poster bed with gorgeous linen, complete with en suite bathroom/wet room and dressing area.

Adjacent is a beautifully designed terraced cottage garden, this private hideaway is a lovely spot to while away the evenings and catch the last rays of sunshine. The lower part of the garden offers a place to wander and admire the local slate structures dotted around whilst the upper area offers an abundance of seating areas, where you can gaze across to Coniston Water and the green hills of Grizedale behind. The owner of the property has hand painted signs to draw your attention to the newly extended parking area, bicycle storage and garden. There is also a dog kennel area, should you need to keep an eye on your four legged friend. Please note due to the nature of the terracing we recommend that children are supervised at all times.

Complementing the property is a bright and modern utility room, complete with washer, dryer, freezer and heating. This room also encompasses a drying rack perfect for hanging up wet clothes after a day exploring.

For those of you on two wheels, along with the lockable outbuilding which can easily fit 4 bikes comfortably there is an external water tap, handy for washing off and cleaning up.

Footpaths are close by, going down to the lake for the Cumbrian Way, or into the fells and The Old Man of Coniston. This cottage is a must for diehard romantics, friends, families or those seeking outdoor adventure from the doorstep.
