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.


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.


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.


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.


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 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.


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.


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.


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.


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.

Hi Simon,

Just wanted to send a review of our 4 night stay at Charcoal House from the 5th of August to the 9th as I never found the time to write a review in the guest book.

The property was absolutely stunning and I must say the best holiday cottage we have ever stayed in (and we’ve stopped in quite a few).

Fabulous kitchen with the Aga. The Nook was so perfect for my daughter and her boyfriend and the other bedrooms were gorgeous, beautifully decorated, comfy beds and lovely bedding.

The lounge area was excellent for chilling out in the evening for all six of us and our chocolate Labrador Mabel, who thoroughly enjoyed her stay in this lovely cottage and the surrounding areas.

Thank you so much and we will have no hesitation recommending this property to our friends and will definitely be back to this property or one of your others in the future.

“Amazing house”

We had an amazing 4 day break at this fabulous house.

Decorated to a high started the best equipped and cleanest holiday home we have rented in this country.

Extremely quiet but not too far from attractions and great places to eat. The enclosed garden was ideal for our Dog. Can’t wait to visit again – Karen Harper, Durkar, West Yorkshire,

My wife is over the moon with the house, she keeps saying it is better and cleaner than all of the non-dog friendly places we have been – Richard Blagg – Newcastle Upon Tyne
