This stone and slate built cottage has the advantageous position of being set back from the hustle and bustle of Coniston, yet is only a few minutes' walk from the village centre.

No.6 is a cosy, romantic hideaway made especially for two. Bright and modern this quaint cottage has been lovingly cared for by its owners who have lavished much care on its restoration.

D&A, October 2019

We stayed at 6 The Forge, a one bedroom, terraced cottage, where a small path at the rear leads to a small private wooded area. When we stayed we were blessed with lots of sunshine and took advantage of the areas lovely walks and steam gondola. The cottage itself is well equipped and we found a welcome pack, which included milk, bread, coffee, tea, biscuits, wine, dishwasher tablets, soap powder, white company toiletries. There was also a doggy basket too, blanket, bowl, treats. Great bedroom, with a large comfy bed, nice views out of the windows and a short stroll into town, but nicely tucked away, peaceful and quiet. There wasn't anything negative to say about the cottage or the area, loved our stay here. Great artisan bakery on the front street and we enjoyed a nice Indian takeaway from the local restaurant.
