Country house previously owned by artist John Ruskin. Near to Lake Coniston, so, if it's a nice day, combine with a walk along the lakeshore or even up nearby fell Coniston Old Man.
Fantastic area. Beautiful scenery, great little villages, pubs and shops. We stayed in a couple of cottages we found on the Lovetoescape portal - loads to choose from. Why holiday abroad when the exchange rate is bad, home has so much to offer.
Beautiful spot with great walks on the east around Place Fell. Take a trip on the Ullswater Steamers to get a good sense of the lake and, if you're feeling adventurous, head up Hevellyn from Patterdale or Glenridding.
