  • Traditional Lakeland cottage
  • Perfect for families
  • Walking distance of all village amenities

If you want to stay in a quintessential Lakeland cottage, then look no further. Stone Leys Cottage is just that. A double-fronted slate property, with whitewashed sidewalls and front porch, and with a hedged front garden, it is a delight to see. Situated in Haws Bank, a couple of minutes south of Coniston, Stone Leys was built over 200 years ago and was the home of the wheelwright at Coniston Hall. Today it is the perfect base for enjoying the outdoors, with easy access to fells for walking and biking, the lake for messing about in boats (temporary Coniston Sailing Club membership available for dinghy owners).

The porch is ideal for leaving your outdoor equipment; muddy boats, waterproofs or sailing gear, whatever you've been up to. There's even space for bikes, boats or canoes in the drive. As you go in, to your right is the living room, bathed in light from the large windows and with three large comfy sofas, HD TV, Sky Sports, oak beams and wood-burning stove, you'll be right at home. Next door is another living area but with children in mind - table football, their own sofa, TV and DVD, Wi-Fi as well as a PS2 and loads of games. You'll have trouble getting them out of there!

The kitchen and dining area is huge and will easily accommodate large groups. There are views out to the cottage garden and babbling brook running alongside. There's a laundry room and a pantry complete with dishwasher. Stairs go up to the landing and three bedrooms. Stone Leys is perfect for large active (and inactive) families!
