  • Luxurious 5* Gold Georgian property
  • Village location
  • Recently refurbished
Following a year of major refurbishment works ending in May 2016, this magnificent Georgian property has undergone a complete transformation.

Located a stone’s throw from Coniston village (less than a third of a mile), set on the road to the striking and historical Coppermines Valley lies this spacious Georgian home. The owners, Jane & Simon have, with much effort managed to create a home of the highest quality standards whilst carefully managing to preserve the properties outstanding historical features.

From its peaceful situ the house enjoys delightful aspects overlooking the open fields to the front and the bubbling Church Beck to the rear. Whilst the outside of the property offers areas of solitude and calm, it is inside where the real allure of this beautiful home can be found.

A grand entrance porch welcomes you into this spacious property, complete with seating, boot and coat storage, the porch has been designed with functionality in mind offering the perfect place to kick off wet weather gear. Upon opening the front door you are instantly struck by the opulence of this home, a myriad of bright, inviting rooms, all waiting to be discovered.

Downstairs you are spoilt for choice by not one, but three comfortable living areas. Full of charm, character and the latest mod-cons they all encompass quirky personal adornments, wood burning stoves & an abundance of cosy seating ideal for curling up in. The pièce de résistance can be found in the spacious kitchen & dining area which occupies the rear of the house, again complete with the latest mod cons and personal touches. This area offers countryside views over the paved rear garden, up Church Beck and into the woodland beyond.

Due to the properties positioning both the front and rear garden enjoy the majority of the days sun. The front garden offering two small grassed areas, perfect for sitting out on a picnic blanket. The rear garden, lovingly paved with local slate and complete with wrought iron garden furniture, offering the perfect al fresco dining area with views over the Beck and the fields beyond. There is also an abundance of parking alongside the property and should you find yourself travelling with a couple of bikes or kayaks, good news - there’s a secure storage area to the rear of the property.

Back in the main house, up the Georgian staircase you will find four opulent and bright bedrooms all complete with beautiful en-suite shower and/or bathrooms. There are two grand king rooms to the front of the house, a comfortable twin room to the side and another spacious king room to the rear. All bedrooms enjoy smart TV’s with Free Sat, beautiful furnishings and fantastic views. The en suite bathrooms have to be seen to be believed, lavishly decorated in keeping with the Georgian era. The two free standing tubs, we imagine, would be most inviting after a long day spent on the fells.

In essence Gate House is a beautiful house that has been lovingly transformed into a dream home. The perfect place for romantics, families, friends and outdoor enthusiasts alike.


Historically Gate House had early associations with the family who developed the 19th century Coppermines, and was the home in the early 20th century to the famous lakes artist Alfred Heaton Cooper - who, at that time, renamed it 'Sondheim'. Keen to retain historical links the owners have ensured that many works of Cooper adorn the cottage walls.

Please note the property is attached to two smaller residential properties.
