Charcoal House, Near Coniston Water, Cumbria

 

Charcoal House is a gorgeous large country house with 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms.

The house is 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.

SITTING ROOM

The large sitting room is located on the 1st floor to take advantage of the good views and the balcony.

This is a gorgeous room that is very light and spacious and has a huge ‘wow factor’ with its huge oak beams, thick stone walls and a roaring log fire.

There are sofas and chairs for 8 people, a top of the range Samsung Smart TV

The large balcony looks across to the Lake District fells and is a wonderful place to relax with gentle sound of the river Crake below. In the distance you can see ‘The Old Man of Coniston’, England’s highest most southerly mountain.

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.

BEDROOMS & BATHROOMS

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

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.

THE NOOK

Included in the price is The Nook, a large, spacious, ground floor apartment that is accessed via a door from the utility room next to the kitchen.

The Nook provides the 4th bedroom and has a lovely open plan design with a king-sized bed, an en-suite shower room with a power shower, toilet and basin.

The Nook also has a fully equipped kitchen, a seating area with a sofa, flat screen TV and a roaring log fire. The French doors let the light flood into The Nook.

The Nook is a great asset to the house as it can be used as private annex if any of your group want a bit of privacy.

The extra kitchen is ideal for large groups and offers a conventional oven for anyone who is not too sure about using the Aga in the main kitchen.

The Nook is not rented out separately. It is included with the rest of the house.

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

PARKING & GARAGE

There’s off road parking for 4 cars. The parking spaces adjacent to the front door and guests are welcome to make use of the large, secure garage to park in or to store bicycles, canoes and other outdoors equipment.

WINTER ACCESS

Charcoal House is only 155 feet (47 meters) above sea level. It’s very, very rare for us to have snow disruption. We’ve never had anyone not be able to get to the house due to adverse weather.

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.

5 out of 5 Review on Trip Advisor

“Beautiful, exceptional comfy house”

What can I say but amazing and just what we all needed after a very busy Christmas.

My Husband, children, grandparents, grandchildren and myself stayed at Charcoal House and once again what a wonderful house it is.

The house is very spacious, comfy and very clean and made extra special with the welcoming warmth of the Aga, which we made great use of, although we did go for a lovely evening meal at The Mill in Ulverston.

The large sitting area is beautiful and the lovely balcony with its amazing view, great for spotting the local wildlife.

We stayed for 3 days at the house relaxing, walking and on the last day just spent at the lake just skimming stones, the grandchildren just loved this.

This is the 3rd property we have rented from Simon and all equally as nice. So once again thank you and can’t wait for next time – Lindsay Sandilands

A special place to spend a wonderful Christmas.

We enjoyed the Aga, the log fire, meals around the table, the Red Lion (the nearest pub just one mile away) and the Christmas tree. Thank you – The Wright family, London

From Email:-

We had a great time – it is the first time my husband and I had been to the Lakes and we loved it.

The house was extremely comfortable and furnished/decorated to a very good standard. I fell in love with the Aga, having never cooked on one before and loved the fact that most of the house seemed to benefit from the heat generated. My husband is dreading the inevitable request!

We will almost certainly be making another trip to the area, probably at a similar time because we enjoyed the beautiful autumn colours so much and the added benefit of very few people around, although it was far from deserted.

We also spent far more time and money than was good for us in Booth’s (the North West’s equivalent to Waitrose-but much better) – Stephanie Locke
