Property Type: 
Large holiday house sleeping 18 near Coniston Water, ideal for outdoor activity and walking breaks with friends

Holiday Rental for Groups of Families and Friends.
The Beech Tree, Coniston, Cumbria, Lake District, sleeps 2-18 in 10 bedrooms.

The Beech Tree is a very welcoming house in the Lake District National park, sleeping 10 to 16 people in 8 bedrooms, with 2 extra rooms in an annex available on request, taking capacity to 20.

You enter the house through a large, bright, attractively tiled entrance hall lit up by a 2 metre high window overlooking a very special, totally natural rock garden. To the right and left of the hall are two lounges. The house has 10 bedrooms (8 + a further 2 on request) and plenty of bathrooms, ideal for group holidays and family gatherings. From the house there are views of all the local mountain scapes and hills.

The Beech Tree is situated in the beautiful village of Coniston in the heart of the Lake District National Park. From here you can climb the Old Man, walk along the Cumbrian way, visit John Ruskin's house or museum, take a steam boat journey on the lake or just chill out in one of the five very attractive local pubs. There is even a small local brewery which has won many awards.

Coniston stands close to Coniston lake, which has been preserved and protected by the National Trust which owns large tracts of land in the area and is largely unspoilt by modern developments. Coniston also lies at the foot of an imposing horseshoe ridge formed by the mountains of Wetherlam, Swirl How and the Old Man. This forms an entrance gate to a huge area of Lake District Fells, with Scafell Pike (the highest mountain in England) and the famous Langdale Pikes forming the next ridge. As a centre for walking or mountain biking it can't be beaten. Five different mountain bike routes start in Coniston together with uncountable walks.

The Beech Tree is a fantastic base for groups of nature lovers and sports enthusiasts that can really appreciate the house and the area.
