Nestled in a picturesque valley at the foot of one of the most impressive fells in the Lake District National Park, Silverlake House is an effortlessly stylish 19th century former coach house perfect for couples. Set across three floors and exuding a romantic peaceful ambiance, this luxury self-catering cottage is just a short walk to the sleepy village of Coniston with its friendly inns and welcoming locals.
Silverlake House and its attached neigbouring two properties are the last houses in the village before the unmade road winds up to the fells and the Old Man of Coniston. The bright white interiorscape and Smeg appliances as you step into the kitchen entrance will inspire both design aficionados and culinary whizzes alike. A staircase from the kitchen leads to an elegant sitting room with woodburner, well-stocked bookcase and magical views. Coniston Water is just a short drive away, so enjoy a leisurely Victorian steam yacht tour and take in the dramatic scenery all around.

Lull yourself to sleep counting shooting stars through the skylight, and enjoy a restful uninterrupted slumber until morn....
The gate in the garden wall leads to the hidden terraced garden surrounded by mature woodland and views towards the surrounding fells. Don't forget to pack the walking boots!
