The cottage is perched on the hillside with majestic views over Coniston water, the village and down the valley towards Hellvelyn. Being just a couple of minutes walk from the centre of the village it is both peaceful and convenient. It is an ideal base for walkers; the end of the lane joins the route up to the Old Man of Coniston, and there are a wide variety of walks for all levels from the door.
The Sun Inn, with open fire, is at the end of the lane. Please note that the lane is steep.
