Great check-in experience100% of recent guests gave this home’s check-in process a 5-star rating.

This traditional slate house is in the hamlet where Arthur Ransome, author of 'Swallows & Amazons' spent his childhood holidays. Today it still retains its sleepy charm. The house is a stone's throw from Coniston Water with fells, woodlands and waterfalls on the doorstep waiting to be explored. It's a great location for family holidays, with all the beauty of the Lake District packed into this little hidden corner.

Brenda was great. Very responsive by message to any question or need for the duration of entire stay. As a Ladies Trip, we loved having the house to come back to - great for slow mornings and hanging out at the end of the day. Loved it.

We had a wonderful stay in Brenda's beautiful home. There are plenty of great walks just on the doorstep and after getting a bit wet in the Lake District hills, the fire and Aga are the perfect things to sit next too! Would highly recommend!

Great house in quiet location close to Coniston Water. Good communication with the owner who was very helpful. Good amenities at the house, nice fire which was great. We were there for a business trip so didn’t get chance to fully relax, but it’s very much a home from home.

I love living in the English lake district, but also enjoy travel and spending some of the winter in warmer climes. I've volunteered in South Africa over the last few years. I enjoy meeting new people and introducing them to this beautiful area.
