  • Commanding position overlooking Coniston Water
  • Large garden
  • Perfect for families

As you climb out of Coniston on the road heading to Hawkshead, just above Monk Coniston lies 300 year old Hollin Bank. If you're coming to the Lake District primarily to enjoy the views, then you can't overlook this cottage. It has simply breathtaking views, looking south down along length of Coniston Water. You could quite easily just wallow in the view, and not do anything else, it is that astonishing.

However, as an added bonus, there's a lovely cottage to stay in too. Outside stairs lead down to the kitchen door. Inside there is a modern fitted kitchen with wooden floors and a table seating six. French windows lead out to the lawned garden and that view! There's twin bedroom on the same floor and a new shower room. Up past the old watercolours, leads to the landing complete with an old drying rack suspended from the ceiling. The living room is on this floor but there is a reason for this - you just need to look out of the windows to work it out. The furniture can't decide whether to be positioned in front of the wood burner or in front of the windows. Upstairs there are also twin and double bedrooms.

But it is the garden with its views that makes this cottage so irresistible. Dry stone walls surround the garden, keeping the local Herdwick sheep out. Tall pines shelter the woodpeckers you may hear and rhododendrons add seasonal colour. And at the bottom of the garden, there are table and chairs in arguably the best position of any such furniture in the area. Let's just hope the weather is kind and you get the chance to make the most of this cottage and its location.
