For those who love the countryside The Coppermines Mountain Cottages offer you the chance to explore the fascination of the fells or to simply relax, unwind, enjoy the clear mountain air and watch the quietly grazing Herdwick sheep, beneath a stunning panorama of mountain peaks.

Coniston Water can be seen at the foot of the valley, which is reached by a road of pinnel stone construction, little changed from its original Victorian appearance, suitable for most vehicles except the lowest of sports cars.

Sawyers Cottage is a delightfully rustic mountain cottage offering easy access onto the surrounding Coniston fells. This comfortable 3 bedroomed cottage enjoys fantastic views down the Coppermines Valley towards Coniston Water. The largest of our mountain cottages, Sawyers is a great base for groups and celebrations and there is a private hot tub for guests use.

Stayed with my family for a week at this beautiful cottage. Set in the Coppermines Valley it was just stunning. Pet friendly and set next to waterfalls and walks on your doorstep. The hot tub was pure luxury. I can't praise the people, cottage or location enough it was totally amazing. The building is split in to 3 cottages so you may have neighbours. This actually enhanced our stay, we met some fabulous people and can't wait to book again!!! We will definitely be back.
