Nibthwaite Peat House

Coniston Water self catering

ETB 5 star

Nibthwaite Grange Peat House is a self catering holiday cottage, a mile from the shore of Coniston Water. It is beautifully created from a 17th century peat house, offering guests a high level of comfort with a first impression of warmth and elegance.

If your perfect holiday is to be near to Coniston Water, have fabulous views, walks from your doorstep and a pub nearby, then the Peat House will be for you!

Part of the small hamlet of Nibthwaite, this self catering cottage lies a mile from Coniston Water. Tracks lead from the cottage through woodland and moor, where you can take trails across fell leading to the Grizedale Forest, ending your day with a walk home by Coniston Water. If you fancy a pint in a friendly inn, the Red Lion is a gentle one mile stroll down to nearby Lowick Bridge.

The Peat House has paneled walls and timber floors in soft creams, scattered with richly coloured rugs. Soft lighting spills onto polished dark furniture and a plump sofa and two armchairs are drawn around the roaring log fire. It is equipped with all "Mod Con's": A colour TV, Sky, DVD player, free WI-Fi Broadband, a CD Hi-Fi and pay telephone.

The Peat House kitchen area, with all mod cons, is finished with paneled units and a fine table, where with the lights dimmed and a few candles you have the perfect place to wine and dine.

The Peat House has two bedrooms, comfortably furnished with pitched ceilings. The double has an ensuite bathroom and the twin a shower room.



Garden, Conservatory & Reading Room

The cottage has a large garden with views out to fell and woodland. A narrow water race runs the length of the garden; the sound of the water adds a tranquil feel and it makes a great place to cool aching feet after a long day on the fells!

In the garden you will find the conservatory adjoing a small reading room, a quiet place with a host of books, desk, armchair and log burning stove.

On rainy or, stormy days it's a nice place to experience the great Cumbrian weather whilst staying dry.



Whilst children are welcome at the Peat House please be aware that they must be supervised around the water race.
