Conveniently located in the hamlet of Torver, close to the village of Coniston, this delightful Lakeland bungalow has been completely renovated and attractively furnished to a very good standard, whilst retaining some of its original features with an Aga in the kitchen, lovely large living room with open fire and wonderful view of the surrounding mountains, and boasts an attractive garden. The Old Man of Coniston, Wetherlam and Swirl How can be walked in a day and offers fantastic views. Surrounded by magnificent scenery, the walking, scrambling and climbing are absolutely superb. The Langdales are a little further away. The property is situated 5 miles from Ambleside, a mile from Tarn Hows and Grizedale Forest behind you.

Windermere is a short ferry trip across the lake, and all the beautiful lakes can be reached along wonderful scenic drives. Shop and pub serving food 200 yards, restaurant 1½ miles.
