Set well back from the main road, in one and a quarter acres of woodland and only 100 metres from the lake, Potters Wheel has direct access to the Lake shore for fishing, sailing and simply enjoying getting your feet wet.

Leaded windows, a wall formed out of rock, and beams are a reminder of the property's antiquity and, combined with modern facilities such as a fitted bathroom and top of the range kitchen, the cottage now has a successful mix of ancient and modern - and all within a stones throw of Coniston Water!Read more about Potters Wheel

The delightful village of Coniston nestles at the foot of the famous Coniston Old Man fell (From where you get superb views of Coniston Water and Lake Windermere) and nearby to the Grizedale Forest. The village has a welcoming feel and traditional Lake District warmth to it; visitors will find plenty of shops and cafes in which to relax while they soak up the scenery and gentle pace of life.
A popular centre for walkers, climbers and cyclists, the area is also well known for Coniston Water; setting for the famous children’s story, Swallows and Amazons and also scene of Donald Campbell’s tragic world water-speed record attempt in 1967. Nowadays the Victorian steam yacht ‘Gondola’ which first went into service in 1859 and was restored in 1977 by the National Trust, plies the five miles of water from April to October. You can hire rowing boats, electric boats, kayaks and dinghies from Coniston Boating Centre on the lakeshore.
Take the opportunity to visit the Ruskin Museum, for local history, and ‘Brantwood’ on the shores of Coniston Water, former home to the poet John Ruskin.
Positioned between Coniston Water and Windermere, Hawkshead is arguably the quaintest location in the lakes, with white washed cottages dating back to the 16th century, charming old pubs and tea shops along narrow traffic-free streets.
The village is busy with tourists who come to see the Grammar school where, in the 1780’s William Wordsworth developed inspiration for this early poetry and home to the Beatrix Potter gallery showing her original drawings for her children’s books. The village hosts the annual Victorian fair and agricultural/sports show every summer.
Broughton-in-Furness is well situated a few miles west of nearby Coniston, and is becoming a favoured destination for the more discerning visitor, who appreciate its tranquil charm and acknowledge it as part of the "Undiscovered Lakeland". In the Square is the town hall, once the market hall, and now the Tourist Information Centre, two slate fish market slabs, and old stocks, which together with the surrounding three storey merchants houses, creates a unique feeling to this historic market town. There is also a good selection of amenities within the village including an award winning restaurant.
Never been to a rented cottage so well equipped. Fantastic
Excellent, well equipped cottage.
A fantastic place to stay if you are looking to get away from it all. A cottage with great character but with all the modern items you need to enjoy your holiday in the lakes

It was an enjoyable and cosy cottage

Lovely, warm and homely.
This is a small, cosy cottage and extremely well equipped. It is easy to keep clean, and all cleaning products/implements are provided. It is also great to be able to bring our dogs without any worry.
We were so impressed with the cleanliness of the property, the facilities, position, the warmth of the property and numberous other facilities that we have been three times so far and are planning another visit in 2012. The property is a credit to its owners.
Superb accommodation and facilities in a beautiful location - a credit to the owner.

The cottage was very wel appointed and in particular the suply of coal and kindling for the stove was generous.
