Lake View Cottage is one of a row of traditional stone and slate built terraced cottages on Days Bank, originally built around 1820 for mine workers in the Coppermines Valley. Today the cottage has been lovingly restored by its current owners and now offers a glimpse of history together with today's comforts and mod-cons.

Perfectly positioned this delightful cottage is perched just above the village, offering fantastic views over Coniston and Coniston Water towards Grizedale forest. However the many amenities of Coniston village are less than a 10 minute stroll downhill. Keen walkers will also appreciate the abundance of footpaths available straight from the doorstep into the surrounding Coniston fells.

In essence this stylish and comfortable home is perfect for couples and small families looking to explore the local area.
