Spectacular views from the dining room

The kitchen is amply equipped for the New Year cook- cooker with ceramic hob, microwave, fridge freezer and dishwasher; however there are two excellent pub/restaurants within walking distance should you wish your New Year’s Day to be free from cooking.

A beautiful oak floored dining room offers superb views of Coniston Old Man and the surrounding peaks and fells. The large oak dining table and furniture provide ample room for the New Year meal. This is a delightful place to view the changing weather should it be too cold to venture outside. Watching the colours and patterns of the Old Man change with the sun , rain and snow is a fascinating pastime!

The surrounding area has many low level walks to safely enjoy in the snow, including a short walk down to Coniston Water through the woods on Torver Common – a memorable walk on a frosty morning. There are many other walks in the area to challenge the most ardent fell walker and mountain biker.
