Chester's Lodge is a stunning contemporary holiday home in a wonderful location. With space for eight guests in four bedrooms, it enjoys an enviable location just 300 metres from the southern shore of Lake Coniston, surrounded by six acres of private land. It's a fantastic place to get away from it all with family or friends yet is close enough to places like Hawkshead, Ambleside and Ulverstone, so you don't feel too remote from attractions and amenities. Spend your days exploring the Lake District National Park, walking and cycling around lakes and mountains, admiring stately homes and charming towns and villages, and your nights sitting around the outdoor fire pit with a glass of local beer while you count the stars, or relaxing in the luxurious living room where your every comfort is catered for.
