Continue climbing the hill and you will come to Bank Terrace and No 32 can be found on the right hand side. There is allocated car parking for Bramble Cottage to the side of the road with a number plaque at the far end of the terrace.  

Description Thought to have been constructed as a miners cottage in the 19th Century The Banks sits high above Coniston commanding superb views over much of the length of Coniston Water in the valley below and beyond to the Grizedale Forest. This peaceful location makes Bramble Cottage perfect as a holiday let or lock up and leave weekend retreat.

Beautifully presented with cottage style doors, slate flooring, beams and an open fire this welcoming home is full of character and is a successful holiday let with Coniston Coppermines (www.coppermines.co.uk). Coniston itself is well served by a variety of shops, restaurants, cafes and of course traditional Lakeland inns serving locally brewed ale and is a popular centre particuarly with walkers and climbers.

Bramble cottage is bright, charming and full of character and includes an entrance hall, a lovely sitting room, a modern kitchen and a rear lobby with a useful utility cupboard and shower room all on the ground-floor, with 2 bedrooms (one currently employed as a double and one as a twin) plus the house bathroom on the first floor. To the front is a garden which is now somewhat overgrown (the previous owners have excluded it from holiday letting although there is a bench at the front of the cottage which makes an ideal spot for an evening glass of wine and enjoyment of the view.) The garden does not enjoy direct access currently and in the past this has been gained via the gardens of adjoining properties. There is car parking for the terrace and that for Bramble Cottage is located to the side of the road with a numbered plaque.

Perfect for those seeking a traditional stone built Lakeland cottage with superb lake views - what more could you ask for?
