COACHMAN’S HOUSE

Lake District

You and Your Wedding - - Pillow Talk -

WHERE This charm­ing 19th-cen­tury cot­tage is in the pretty vil­lage of Con­is­ton. Just a 10-minute walk from Con­is­ton Wa­ter, it’s lo­cated in the Old Man of Con­is­ton fell, with the trail for a four-hour trek start­ing at the foot of the drive­way. WHY Few mini breaks are as ro­man­tic as an English cot­tage get­away, but while the for­mer coachman’s house may look quaint from the out­side, the in­te­rior is de­light­fully modern and chic. White­washed walls and plush fur­nish­ings greet you, but head through a se­cret pas­sage to en­ter the cosy snug – an ideal place for snack­ing on the ham­per given to you by the own­ers. A roll-top bath is the cen­tre­piece in the mas­ter bed­room, but if you’re more into ad­ven­ture than re­lax­ing you won’t need to travel far; pad­dle­board­ing, gorge walk­ing and kayak­ing are eas­ily ac­ces­si­ble. BOOK From £490 for a three-night week­end stay (sleeps four), coach­man­shouse.co.uk
