About this Holiday Cottage

Idyllically situated within a 60 acre lakeside estate, The Stables Cottage near Coniston village and Hawkshead boasts beautiful views towards Coniston Old Man and Coniston Water. Perfectly placed for boat trips including themed Swallows and Amazons boat trips on Coniston Water, the cottage is a superb holiday base for walking and outdoor activities including cycling in nearby Grizedale Forest. We're within easy reach of John Ruskin's beautiful historic home Brantwood alongside Coniston Water and just a stone's throw from Beatrix Potter Country around Hawkshead.

The Stables Cottage is situated within our breathtaking Grade Listed Bank Ground Farm estate and sits within a row of five luxury Lakeland cottages, all of which share a delightful outdoor picnic terrace area with panoramic views of Coniston Water and Coniston Old Man.


Accommodating five guests comfortably, the cottage is a beautifully converted former stables with spacious living space spread across three floors. There is a patio door and steps leading down to the picnic terrace.


Master second floor double bedroom with a romantic four poster bed,a large walk in wardrobe and en-suite fully fitted bathroom,  The two further bedrooms nestling on the ground floor are a pretty single and a double which can be a twin on request. These two bedrooms share a ground floor luxury shower room. 

Guesthouse and Restaurant

We run a guest house within the listed farmhouse on the estate and a popular on-site tearoom serving delicious locally sourced homemade meals and an outstanding wine selection. An option is also available to dine in our restaurant within the guesthouse which serves delicious three course evening meals on Fridays and Saturdays for an additional charge. We also have a farmshop selling our home reared meat when available (Aberdeen Angus beef and Jacob Lamb) as well as homemade bread, jams and chutneys, cakes etc and then a selection of other local produce

Got a boat or a dog?

Guests are most welcome to bring along their own boats for sailing on Coniston Water. We have mooring facilities for boats up to a maximum size of 26ft. Dogs are very welcome too and we're sure they'll enjoy their holiday accommodation in a spacious, modern, air conditioned kennel with hot and cold water. All they need are their own toys and bedding to make their stay as comfortable as possible and they'll be delighted with all the walks nearby.
