Perched above the traditional village of Coniston, Carrie’s Gate enjoys wonderful views across one of Lakeland’s quietest and most famous waters and across to Brantwood and Grizedale Forest beyond, and is set against a backdrop of dramatic mountain scenery. Ideal for couples and families alike, Carries Gate is the perfect location for romantic getaways, family adventures or walkers of all ages and abilities with Coniston Old Man and the surrounding fells quite literally on your doorstep. The magnificent vista of Coniston Water is certain to entice you down to the shore area for a gentle stroll or perhaps a relaxing trip on the steamboat Gondola followed by thirst quenching cuppa at the Bluebird Cafe.
Coniston has a good variety of places to eat, most serving food throughout the day and into the evening and a great selection of Lakeland pubs within walking distance of the cottage, including the home of the award winning Bluebird Bitter which is produced at the micro-brewery in the village. There are local shops for all of your provisions including an excellent butcher for fell bred Cumbrian steaks and lamb. The newsagents will even have your papers delivered!!
Carries Gate offers really comfortable accommodation whatever the time of the year you choose to visit. The multi fuel stove is a great focal point in the cosy lounge, especially for tired dogs to snooze in front of after a hard days walk, and yet the view across Coniston Water from the front windows is really never far away and can prove quite mesmerising! A sunny garden just across the lane from the cottage gives you the choice to eat al fresco and watch the sunset slowly over the lake. The owners have provided excellent facilities to create a genuine ’home from home’ experience to ensure you’ll get the very best out of your stay including unlimited broadband so younger members of your party will be happy to know that Facebook is still available plus a Smart TV with free OnDemand and Netflix accounts, along with a great selection of books and games for those rainy days.
