We are excited to bring to market the unique opportunity for someone to acquire a rare land parcel with private lakeside access on Coniston Water, within the Lake District UNESCO World Heritage Site. This is land at Brown Howe, a 3.35 acre block of grassland, woodland and coppice, incorporating a sizeable timber frame building and benefiting from a natural water supply and home to a varied array of species of fauna and flora.
Coniston Water is thought to be the inspiration behind Arthur Ransome’s famous children’s book, ‘Swallows and Amazons’; with boat hire and sailing lessons available on the lake, you will have the opportunity to explore the lake and try to discover some of the book’s exciting locations.
“For those looking to for a private, peaceful, picturesque property to enjoy the great outdoors this really is the perfect place”, says Helena White, Chartered Surveyor with H&H Land & Estates.
