The Old Pottery Cottage is a spacious 3 bedroom semi detatched house, ideal perhaps for the larger family or for 2 families to share.

Relax in the peaceful and quiet surroundings of the area which are an ideal base for exploring the area on foot, with paths from the door both onto Coniston 'Old Man' and across Torver common to Coniston water itself. They also form an excellent starting point for touring the Lake District by car with Ambleside and Lake Windermere being only 15 minutes away.

The lounge, equipped with T.V., Video, Mini Hi-Fi, as well as a selection of books, videos, CDs and board games for family entertainment or just relaxing in one of the comfortable settees in front of the log burning stove after a tiring day out on the fells.

The kitchen/diner is fully equipped with dishwasher, fridge/freezer and washer/drier, to include details such as food processor, weighing scales and slow cooker to keep the chefs entertained.

Upstairs there are 3 bedrooms, the master with ensuite shower room, a second double bedroom, and the third with bunk beds and a single bed. All rooms have excellent views out over the fells towards Coniston Water.

The family bathroom has bath with shower over, w.c., heated towel rail and shaver light.
Outside is a private patio and barbecue area, with magnificent views across to the fells and Grizedale Forest.
