Location From Ambleside take the A593 road to Coniston. Proceed into Coniston on Yewdale Road continuing over the bridge and out of the village for approximately 1 3/4 miles and the property can be found on the right hand side at Little Arrow prior to St Luke's Parish Church. Turn into the small access lane and the cottage is away from the road on the right hand side. 

Description Sitting prettily in the quiet Hamlet of Little Arrow, approximately one and three quarter miles from the centre of popular Coniston and only a short stroll from the lake shore, Fell Cottage has been thoughtfully and tastefully extended over the years to provide excellent family accommodation which would readily lend itself to holiday letting or becoming a peaceful weekend retreat in this unspoilt quarter of the magnificent Lake District National Park.

Draped in beautiful Virginia creeper, this attractive stone and slate cottage is as pretty as a picture and offers space for all in its tastefully presented accommodation.

The entrance hall gives access to a ground-floor shower room which doubles as a cloaks room and leads onto a central snug from which access is then gained to the superb through living room which has been substantially extended at the rear. The family kitchen is attractively presented and includes the convenience of a traditional oven alongside a splendid Aga. The rear hall and covered porch way is perfect for storing coats and boots after a day on the fells whilst on the first floor are four excellent bedrooms all with lovely views. The large box room is big enough to convert to provide an en-suite or even two if desired (subject to any required consents) to supplement the house bathroom.

Outside are easily managed gardens backing onto open fields with woodland and fells beyond. On the opposite side of the access lane is a car parking area which by the simple removal of the two timber sheds could potentially accommodate three or even four vehicles.

All in all a lovely welcoming home in delightful setting with excellent access to country walks, Coniston Water, pretty Lakeland villages and all that the National Park has to offer. The lake shore is just a short stroll away whilst footpaths from Little Arrow can take you directly out onto the high fells and Coniston Old Man. Simply perfect - come and see for yourself.
