New for 2020
Close to all the village amenities stands a tall and thin Victorian terrace, Dixon Ground. Perfectly positioned on the footpath to the Old Man of Coniston and Levers Water, and on the foothills of the crags behind, these terraced cottages are well situated for walkers, bikers and explorers keen to get straight onto the fells.
Number 2 is a three storey cottage nestled within the terrace, up the gravelled path. The house comfortably sleeps 4 people with the added flexibility of beds for 6, making it perfect for couples, families or small groups of friends. If you have a bigger group however, you could also take over Number 1 Dixon Ground next door which will sleep an extra 10 in 4 bedrooms, as well as Number 4 Dixon Ground, two doors up, which sleeps an extra 4, thus extending the sleeping capacity and allowing groups of up to 18 to be comfortably accommodated across 8 bedrooms. Ideal for those big family get-togethers and celebrations.
Though centrally located, with a pub within rolling distance, the Dixon Ground Cottages are pleasantly peaceful. For keen walkers there is access to the spectacular Coniston fells direct from the front door. In essence Number 2 would suit families with children of any age or couples looking to relax and enjoy the local area.
