Tucked away between the lake and Grizedale Forest, the Eastern shore of Coniston Water has arguably some of the best views in Lakeland. Ruskin, Tennyson, Turner and Ransome have all been romanced by the majestic mountains across the lake and Coniston village nestled at their base a mile away.

Set in the centre of this picnic perfect landscape, surrounded by farmland once owned by Beatrix Potter, the 16th century Townson Ground Estate boasts the ideal location for walking, biking, boating or simply relaxing.

While away your days splashing around on the shoreline, hire a boat from the Coniston Boating Centre, or bring your own and moor it at the private jetty; spend the week fishing or sailing; plan rural rambles through the forest or the fells that end sitting by roaring fires in slate floored pubs, pints of Coniston’s Bluebird Bitter in hand.

Brantwood’s outdoor theatre, music recitals, art workshops and craft fairs satisfy the culturally hungry, while a trip on the Steam Yacht Gondola takes you back to an era of Victorian splendour. Tarn Hows and Yew Tree Farm are on your door step, Hawksead and the dreamy days of Beatrix Potter’s furry friends are just over the hill.

Townson Ground House

Cistercian Monks, the Titanic and Strawberry Teas are woven into the history of this wonderful 400yr old country Estate. Today the original house is available for you to rent, the attached barns and stables, no longer required to house horses and keep hay have been converted into independently owned homes.

Townson Ground House is a celebration of comfort and style. Owned by Interior Designer Jayne Reeve and her husband Joe, renovations took place in 2007 and the house now offers self-catering accommodation for 14 guests.

Perfect for the extended family or a group of friends, charm emanates from the relaxed interiors. Fall into floral sofas and warm your toes around the open fires in the sitting room; eat hearty meals around the huge rustic French dining table next door. Each bedroom wows, one has its own copper bath, another an antique bed, Colefax and Fowler wall papers and reclaimed Belgium tiles bring colour and detail to cool en-suite bathrooms.

In the spring, snow drops and daffodils abound, May brings rhododendrons and fragrant Azaleas, whether it’s a glass of crisp Chablis or a cool beer around the BBQ the hardest choice is where to have lunch, the lakeside picnic table or the sunny south facing garden. It’s so easy to lose track of time at Townson Ground.

There are board games for rainy days and the private lake frontage for sunny ones. Plenty of places of interest locally and lots of good eating establishments close by. Horse riding, mountain biking, hiking, climbing and caving; it’s all within easy reach but what could be better at the end of the day, than coming home to this perfect rural retreat?
