    “Review.”

    My friend and I and our 2 dogs have just spent a lovely weekend at Greenbeck Cottage. I have a heart condition which decided to flare up the day before departure. The cleaner was very kind and allowed us to go into the cottage early as we had been in Coniston since 9.30 as Kay was paddleboarding. We had a wonderful relaxing two days and although I was unable to walk very far we had trips out in the car whilst she walked the dogs and I watched.

    My friend and I and our 2 dogs have just spent a lovely weekend at Greenbeck Cottage. I have a heart condition which decided to flare up the day before departure. The cleaner was very kind and allowed us to go into the cottage early as we had been in Coniston since 9.30 as Kay was paddleboarding. We had a wonderful relaxing two days and although I was unable to walk very far we had trips out in the car whilst she walked the dogs and I watched. She really enjoyed the paddleboarding so if you are into water sports give it a go. We lit the lovely fire on our last night even though it wasn't cold just because it made it so cosy. Comfy beds and everything you could need in the kitchen. We took all we needed with us but a small welcome basket with perhaps local biscuits, a small coffe and tea and sugar supply and a bottle of milk in the fridge for those who forget. Although supplies are only a few steps away. We struggled to get a take away meal on Sunday but the Black Bull - where we had lunch on Saturday - were so helpful and Kay took two plates which they loaded up for us with veggie burger, chips and a huge salad. The dogs loved the little garden at the back with the stream which my dog was sad he couldn't get into. We are already planning a return for a longer stay in the summer.

Nestling at the head of Coniston Water, the pretty village of Coniston is surrounded by some of the most beautiful scenery in the World Heritage Lake District National Park, making it a superb base for touring, with Hawkshead, Ambleside, Windermere and Grasmere just a short drive away. Superb walking, mountain biking and climbing are available locally on Coniston Old Man and Wetherlam, and the lovely woodland trails at Grizedale Forest. For watersports enthusiasts, the quiet lake is ideal for dinghy sailing and canoeing, whilst the less active can enjoy a leisure cruise on the beautiful steam yacht 'Gondola’, or visit Brantwood, the former home of John Ruskin. Nearby attractions include the award-winning village of Hawkshead, home of the Beatrix Potter Gallery, Tarn Hows, one of the most visited beauty spots in the country and Esthwaite Water, famous for its fishing. A first class holiday location at any time of the year.
