Low Arnside Cottage is a dog friendly traditional Lakeland cottage located a short drive from the villages of Coniston and Elterwater and at over 300 years old is full of character and historic features. Set on a working fell sheep farm, it offers a fantastic opportunity to experience Lakeland farm life. Set down a small single track 400m from the main farmhouse, Low Arnside offers fantastic vistas and a quiet peaceful retreat in a stunning location.

You enter the cottage into a beautiful wood panelled hallway oozing with character, in fact throughout the cottage there are some low beams and ceilings common with a property of this age, so be careful you don't bang your head. Off the hallway, we have the kitchen, fully equipped with all you could need for your stay. Opposite the kitchen is the large open plan living room with dining table  comfortable seating is laid out around the marvellous inglenook fireplace with wood burner, and as an added bonus all wood is supplied for the duration of your stay, this a perfect room to relax and unwind after a days exploring or to enjoy a homemade meal at the dining table. Also on the ground floor is the modern family bathroom, with a large bath and overhead shower and underfloor heating which is perfect on those cooler days to keep the chill off. 

As you go up the stairs you can really appreciate the age of this cottage, with latched doors, uneven floorboards and low ceilings which give a magical feeling that you are truly in a cottage steeped in history. Upstairs we have two double rooms and a twin room, each has plenty of storage with a uniquely picturesque view from each window.

Outside we have a fenced off grassed area and picnic table perfect for enjoying the spectacular views of the surrounding fells and for letting your dogs exercise. 

The village of Coniston is 3.8miles away with plenty of pubs, restaurants and shops providing all you need for your holiday. There are also the water activities and lake cruises with the historic steam yacht gondola launch originally launched in 1859.

Low Arnside is the ideal choice for an away from it all holiday for families, friend and dogs based in a unique setting surrounded by fabulous views in the heart of the Lake District National park.

Another wonderful stay in our favourite Lakeland cottage. Plenty of walking and mountain biking routes from the front door straight on to the fells. Cottage was very clean and cosy. Fantastic property and great host.

Mrs W,

The best located holiday cottage we've ever stayed in, if you are looking to get away from it all (which we were). Stunning views, great walking from the front door, cosy lounge, comfy bed. Didn't want to leave, will certainly return.

Ms S,

Great location, walks from the doorstep, lovely characterful property and friendly hosts.

Mr B,
