The cottage is ideally situated next to the lake and only a 1 minute walk away from its own private beach. The cottage is hidden away, just off a main road setback into some woods. Located next to a few walking trails and only a 5 minute drive to the nearest town. Will be coming back here again!
Good place for a get away from it all break. Situated in a small courtyard with two other properties, off the road in a wooded area, it's very quiet and peaceful. Private access to the lake is a plus. Small patio garden at rear great for barbecues.
We have enjoyed a wonderful week at Blea Brows with our 2 young children. The cottage was warm, comfortable, clean and welcoming. We appreciated the effective heating system and plenty of hot water, as well as some logs for the fire. There was plenty of space for the 4 of us, and 6 would have been fine as well.
We didn't use the garden as we spent most of our time at the lake or exploring but it was lovely to have that private space too. The cottage doesn't have a particularly pretty view (can't see the lake) but it's very quiet and peaceful and surrounded by gorgeous woodland and wildlife.
We took our canoe and enjoyed being able to launch from the private access, the path is rough but we felt it was safe enough to leave the boats there and not carry them to and fro each time. We can recommend the short hop to Peel Island for picnics.
We had friends book the cottage opposite (Brown Howe) as they are very close to each other, and this worked really well.
My only suggestion is an emergency land line or similar, as there was no mobile signal at all. We were grateful to have wifi access to use whatsapp and email.
This is a great quiet spot in the Lake District and we hope to return!
Brilliant base for walking and exploring the Lakes. The cottage was very cosy and comfortable. Lovely comfortable beds. A short walk to Lake Coniston. Good local pubs. Would definitely stay again.
