General Info

Set at the foot of The Old Man of Coniston and close to Coniston Water in the rural hamlet of Torver is this beautifully appointed first floor apartment with private hot tub. Herdwick is a delightful holiday apartment, renovated to a high standard with local slate imaginatively used to provide a character finish. Set next to the owner's acclaimed local inn and above a second holiday apartment, this is a real gem and a great choice for couples exploring this stunning area. The comfortable king-size bedroom can be converted to offer convenient twin beds on request, with an en-suite wet room guaranteeing a luxurious experience. Following a day on the fells or touring this fabulous area, an evening snuggled in front of the woodburner is an utter delight. Open the French doors onto the private balcony, where you can sit with a glass of wine or sink into the bubbles of the hot tub as the sun sets to reveal a romantic, star-filled sky. This is a walkers' paradise with the Walna Scar pass leading enticingly upwards towards the lofty fells of The Old Man, Dow Crag, Swirl How and Wetherlam, offering testing mountain bike trails and fantastic walks. The peaceful scenery of Coniston Water can be found within easy reach, with the beautiful country estate of Brantwood, famously home to John Ruskin, is open to the public. Nearby Grasmere offers tempting Grasmere Gingerbread, with the ancient recipe a closely guarded secret, locked away in the local bank! The Roman fort at Hardknott is a fascinating place to visit with a beautiful backdrop, whilst all of the wonderful woodland and Lakeland scenery of the Lake District can be enjoyed within an easy drive. At the close of busy day, this beautiful holiday apartment is sure to welcome your return and prepare you for tomorrowÂ’s adventure. Note: This property is above Ref. 921823, together they sleep 4.

This is our 4th holiday with Sykes and they have all been excellent choices. The accommodation was clean and well furnished. Good location for getting to Coniston, Ambleside, Bowness, Windermere, Keswick etc. Quiet pub and the staff were very helpful. Plenty of dog walks on the doorstep. Thank you Sykes.

Herdwick is in an excellent location and decor and furnishings are to a very high standard.

The accommodation was fabulous.

The property was beautiful and comfortable, it felt like a home away from home. It came with everything we needed and the views from the balcony were fantastic. The hot tub was a treat to come back to after a long day of sight seeing! We will definitely return in the future!
