About Beechgrove Cottage

Beechgrove Cottage is welcoming and comfortable, sleeping four guests in two bedrooms and - music to any guests ears whose legs are tired after hiking all day - the accommodation is all on one level so you can soak in the bath and fall into bed without having to climb any stairs! The cottage, which is very popular with couples and families, is only a two-minute walk to the centre of Coniston and great pubs like the Yewdale Inn.

Until you have seen it in person, it is hard to imagine the magnitude of the beauty of the Lake District, and Coniston is arguably the jewel in its mountainous crown. The surface of Coniston Water acts as a mirror for the Coniston Fells, making peaks like The Old Man appear even more magnificent than they naturally are. The lake will forever be associated with Donald Campbell, who broke the water speed record there in 1955 and who is buried in the churchyard. Cruising Coniston Water is a must, whether you ride on the National Trust’s beautifully restored Victorian Steam Yacht or take the more modern Coniston Launch.

The beauty of the Lake District has inspired artists and writers for centuries. Arthur Ransome set much of his classic “Swallows and Amazons” series of books around Coniston, while John Ruskin lived at Brantwood for the last 30 years of his life and is buried at St Andrew’s Church. Beatrix Potter, who bred Herdwick Sheep at Yew Tree Farm near Coniston (a great place to purchase locally reared meat for cooking back at the cottage), loved the area so much she bequeathed her estate to the National Trust upon her death. Coniston is hugely popular with walkers, but also a fantastic base for cyclists, fell runners, sailors and kayakers.

Coniston is in the south of the Lake District National Park, close to Hawkshead and within an easy drive from Windermere. The scale of the region’s beauty is breathtaking, both in terms of its natural features, as well as its charming towns and villages, many of which are associated with some of Britain’s best-loved artists and writers. William Wordsworth immortalised the countryside around Grasmere in his poetry, while a young Beatrix Potter took inspiration from the garden of Hill Top Farm near Sawrey.

Despite attracting millions of visitors every year, it is still possible to find space and solitude among the landscape of the Lake District National Park, particularly around Coniston. Beechgrove Cottage's excellent location and comfortable accommodation makes it an ideal base for anyone wishing to enjoy it.
