Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Location Follow the A591 to Ambleside, then on to the A593 to Coniston . Upon reaching Coniston, cross the bridge in the centre of the village following the A593 to Torver. The property lies just before the village on the left hand side immediately before the small bridge, from which the property derives its name 

Description Delightfully placed just south west of Coniston Water (the Torver Ferry pier is just 1 mile away along the nearby footpath) this attractive stone built detached home is full of character and yet it has been tastefully and thoughtfully improved over the years providing exceptional accommodation which combines comfort and space with a welcoming touch of luxury - perfect for relaxing whether as a stylish family home, a weekend retreat or holiday let. Currently a 4 star holiday let with The Lakeland Cottage Company, Brigg House is very popular for family gatherings or groups of families and indeed was trading as a bed and breakfast establishment up until 2002.

The bright and spacious accommodation, with many dual aspect rooms, is entered via the original vestibule leading to the wide hallway which immediately creates a feeling of comfort and leads you to the lovely dual aspect bay fronted living room on your left or to the splendid dining room on your right. This also gives access to a lovely south facing conservatory. There is a popular games room just beyond and a well equipped kitchen and separate small utility area. There is also a cloaks room on the ground floor alongside a bedroom with an en-suite bathroom. This presumably would have been the owners accommodation when the property was in bed and breakfast use.

The first floor includes four double bedrooms each with an en-suite shower room, although there is also a house bathroom for those who prefer to soak their aching limbs after a long day on the fells. Arguably the hot tub in the covered patio area at the rear maybe considered a more luxurious option for relaxation whilst the lovely gardens which include patios, barbeque areas, lawns and wooded areas are perfect for socialising and provide a real haven for wildlife. There is plenty of car parking provision for several vehicles and the views are a real delight, most particularly to the south. The property enjoys ready access to local shops and traditional Lakeland inns not only in nearby Torver itself but also in the popular village of Coniston some two miles to the north.

Brigg House provides a perfect combination of tranquillity and convenience in southern Lakeland and is highly recommended for early viewing.
