About the property

Cottage in Lowick Green, Nr. Coniston, Lake District, Cumbria, England - 5 Mins To Coniston Lake And Close To The Fells



Quietly positioned at the southern end of the beautiful Lake District National Park, close to Coniston Water, this highly attractive cottage started life as two dwellings and was converted into one well balanced home a number of years ago. Entered via an enclosed porch the main south facing living space is a delightful L shaped room including a dining area and a dual aspect sitting area complete with beamed ceilings and a very welcoming open fire (fuel not included). The kitchen delightedly combines modern fitments with the traditional qualities of an Aga, a great hit with guests keen to experience true "country living". The split level garden is south facing and includes a patio area as well as a raised lawn bordering fields with beautiful views beyond of the Lake District countryside. With a traditional Lakeland Inn on hand for a quick pint or a hearty meal after a day out on the fells, it is little surprise that this charming home is so popular with its guests.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The cottage was really nice and well equipped. The AGA cooker was great the kitchen always lovely and warm. Pub across road a bonus and the area was really nice.

The cottage was very nice, it was very clean and tidy, we had a lovely holiday and we can't wait to go back to the Lake district again.

Owner's Response: Dear James, Thank you for your review for your 3 night stay at Tipsy Drake Cottage. We are sorry that you felt that it was cold upstairs. Guests that left before your arrival, and guests after your departure had no issues with the warmth of the cottage upstairs, due to them lighting the open fire and the warmth from the Aga. Guests previously have commented informing with all the heaters on upstairs, and warm bedding generated too much heat and therefore had to open the windows which is false economy.

Further Details:

The delightful village of Coniston nestles at the foot of the famous Coniston Old Man fell (From where you get superb views of Coniston Water and Lake Windermere) and nearby to the Grizedale Forest. The village has a welcoming feel and traditional Lake District warmth to it; visitors will find plenty of shops and cafes in which to relax while they soak up the scenery and gentle pace of life.

A popular centre for walkers, climbers and cyclists, the area is also well known for Coniston Water; setting for the famous children’s story, Swallows and Amazons and also scene of Donald Campbell’s tragic world water-speed record attempt in 1967. Nowadays the Victorian steam yacht ‘Gondola’ which first went into service in 1859 and was restored in 1977 by the National Trust, plies the five miles of water from April to October. You can hire rowing boats, electric boats, kayaks and dinghies from Coniston Boating Centre on the lakeshore.

Take the opportunity to visit the Ruskin Museum, for local history, and ‘Brantwood’ on the shores of Coniston Water, former home to the poet John Ruskin.

Positioned between Coniston Water and Windermere, Hawkshead is arguably the quaintest location in the lakes, with white washed cottages dating back to the 16th century, charming old pubs and tea shops along narrow traffic-free streets.

The village is busy with tourists who come to see the Grammar school where, in the 1780’s William Wordsworth developed inspiration for this early poetry and home to the Beatrix Potter gallery showing her original drawings for her children’s books. The village hosts the annual Victorian fair and agricultural/sports show every summer.

Broughton-in-Furness is well situated a few miles west of nearby Coniston, and is becoming a favoured destination for the more discerning visitor, who appreciate its tranquil charm and acknowledge it as part of the "Undiscovered Lakeland". In the Square is the town hall, once the market hall, and now the Tourist Information Centre,
