Charcoal House, Near Coniston Water, Cumbria

 

Charcoal House is a gorgeous large country house located just half a mile from the shores of Coniston Water in the heart of the Lake District National Park.

This traditional stone-built 18th country house is located in a very peaceful off-road location in the tiny hamlet of Low Nibthwaite, just ½ a mile from the southern tip of Coniston Water.

The house has recently been decorated throughout using heritage Farrow & Ball co-ordinating shades and refurbished and furnished to a very high standard.

This gorgeous Lake District holiday house and the large sunny cottage garden are south facing. There’s also off road parking for 4 cars.

FOR BOOKINGS IN 2018

The house sleeps 6 people in 3 bedrooms with 2 bathrooms.

For an extra charge of £50 per night, guests can also have access to ‘The Nook’, a self-contained ground floor apartment that occupies half of the ground floor of the house and is accessed via a door in the main kitchen.

The Nook sleeps 2 people and is only rented to guests renting Charcoal House. Please scroll down the page to ‘The Nook’ for further details.

FOR BOOKINGS IN 2019

The house will sleep 8 people in 4 bedrooms with 3 bathrooms and 2 kitchens as The Nook will be included in the price.

 

KITCHEN

 

The large country style kitchen is fully equipped with everything you will need for luxurious, modern living and entertaining including a microwave, dishwasher, large fridge freezer, crockery, glasses, cutlery, kitchen equipment & utensils for 8 people.

The twin oven Aga range cooker is left on constantly throughout the year providing lovely ambient warmth and the unbeatable taste of Aga cooking.

The open plan kitchen has a breakfast bar, large dining table and 8 chairs and just off the kitchen is the ‘Snug’ seating area with a sofa and coffee table. This is a great area for the kids to get away on their own whilst the rest of the group relax at the other end of the house in the large sitting room.

The house has 3 bathrooms, 2 in the main house and a further en-suite in The Nook (for an additional charge-see below).

Upstairs you’ll find 3 bedrooms all located off a lovely large landing with a huge skylight that fills the house with natural light.

At the far end of the landing you’ll find the large sitting room. This room is exceptionally spacious and has a huge ‘wow factor’. There’s sofas and chairs for 8 people, a top of the range Samsung Smart TV, a roaring log fire and a large balcony overlooking the River Crake and the Lake District fells.

The balcony is a wonderful place to relax and look out across the river and fells to ‘The Old Man of Coniston’, England’s highest most southerly mountain.

 

BEDROOMS & BATHROOMS

 

The 3 large bedrooms are luxuriously furnished with new beds, mattresses and quality wood furniture.

2 bedrooms have king sized beds and the largest bedroom has a super king sized bed that can be unzipped to make twin beds (please let us know at the time of booking if this is your requirement).

The house has 2 good sized bathrooms, 1 with a large walk-in shower and the 2nd bathroom has a roll top, claw foot, free standing bath.

Luxury Egyptian cotton bed linen and towels are included in the price along with central heating, electric, hot water and free Wi-Fi.

UTILITY ROOM

 

The utility room just off the kitchen houses the washing machine, tumble drier, large fridge freezer and an additional sink. This is also a great boot room and drying room.

THE GARDEN

 

The large, south facing cottage garden has a summer house, a brick built BBQ, plus a table and chairs for 8 people. The peaceful, secluded garden is a wonderful place to dine ‘al fresco’ or just enjoy the peace and quiet of the English Lake District with the gentle sound of the River Crake in the valley below.

GARAGE

Guests are welcome to make use of the large, secure garage to store bicycles, canoes and other outdoors equipment.

The Nook is a large, spacious, ground floor, self-contained apartment and is only rented out to guests renting Charcoal House. The Nook is accessed via a door in the main kitchen.

In 2018, there is an additional charge of £50 per night if you want to rent the Nook expanding the occupancy to 8 people.

From 2019 onwards, The Nook will be included in the price.

The open plan Nook is furnished to the same high, luxury standard as the rest of the house with a king sized bed, a seating area with a sofa, chair, table, flat screen TV and a log fire.

French doors open out to the garden and driveway.

The Nook is not rented out separately. It can only be rented in conjunction with the rest of Charcoal House.

If you would like to make use of The Nook iun 2018, you just need to add this to your booking under ‘Booking Extras’ on our online booking system.

 

Charcoal House in Low Nibthwaite is the perfect destination for a relaxing, romantic or adventure filled Lake District holiday.

 

PETS

Well behaved dogs are welcome for a charge of £20 for 1 dog or £30 for 2 dogs. Sorry, but we do not allow more than 2 dogs.

Non pet owners can rest assured that we spend this extra money on additional cleaning so that non pet owners wouldn’t know a dog has stayed in Charcoal House.

This is a great area for dogs with plenty of walks from the doorstep. Charcoal House is surrounded by mountains, fells, fields, footpaths, woods and riverside walks where your dog can have a great holiday too.

The large enclosed garden has just had new fencing put up so you can all enjoy the garden together.

“Fantastic!!”

We’ve had a lovely week at Charcoal House and were really sad to leave.

The location of the property was great! Only a short walk to the Coniston Water and the fells.

Charcoal House was lovely, Clean, warm and inviting and exceeded all our needs, a great place to catch up with family and friends.

We were provided with lots of information on the area walks, places to eat and drink etc from the owner. Can’t wait to book again! Paula

“A perfect and peaceful retreat”

We have recently returned from a long weekend in Charcoal House. A truly fantastic cottage which has been decorated to the highest standard.

From the warming Aga in the open plan kitchen, to the magnificent wood burner in the upstairs lounge, our family enjoyed the comfort and relaxed atmosphere this beautiful Lake District cottage offered.

Simon’s advice about dog friendly places/pubs to visit and eat at came in very handy – especially our visit to the Black Bull in Coniston with its microbrewery.

Any small issues we had, were dealt with quickly and in a very friendly manner by Simon – who was very approachable and keen to ensure our stay was the best it could be.

I can highly recommend this wonderful place to anyone looking for a ‘touch of class’ to make their holiday very special. You won’t be disappointed. 5 very well deserved stars from a highly impressed family.

Came here in June 2017 for a weekend with family including 82 year-old Mum. So impressed with the house and we had a wonderful weekend with the most perfect weather we had to come back!

We brought friends back with us this time. 12 mile walk yesterday including ‘The Hospice’ which has a spectacular view point.

Today 15 miles to Haverthwaite and back – a full weekend – joyful!

Beautiful, beautiful house!
