The outside of Blacksmiths self-catering holiday cottage.
Visit England Rating ****
This holiday cottage was once the Blacksmiths workshop, where until recently the forge remained. It is a sturdy building typical of the style of many in the Lake District, made of the local Burlington and Coniston slate.
There are excellent panoramic views from the cottage of the Old Man of Coniston and the surrounding fells, Dow Crag, Walna Scar and Swirl How. Blacksmiths Cottage has been awarded the VisitEngland Gold Award for exceptional quality of accommodation and customer service.
