About this Holiday Cottage

Thwaite Cottage is an exquisite whitewashed holiday home perfect for large family groups or friends sharing and for couples. The house dates from the 1500s and is peacefully situated on the the edge of Coniston Water. Views look across to Grizedale Forest, Coniston Old Man and the village. Inside, living space is brimming with character features such as window seats in bedrooms, period fireplaces and shuttered windows. The grounds were regularly visited by John Ruskin - his historic home Brantwood sits just across the lake. A country cottage style kitchen caters for all your self-catering needs and a selection of village inns, shops and restaurants are within easy walking distance.
