Property Details

SITUATION On the Eastern Shores of Coniston Water the boathouse sits beneath the country house of Lane Head, the quieter side of the lake is populated by a series of farmhouses and fine country houses and some rolling pasture and established woodland along the lake shore. Popular with boaters and sailors Coniston Water is one of the most well known and favoured lakes within the National Park.

The boathouse is accessed from the lane running along the Eastern shore of the lake via a pedestrian right of way within the Southern boundary of Lane Head and there after across pasture lane.

DESCRIPTION 28′ x 17`4" including a storage deck and useful sail loft.

A substantial Victorian detached boathouse in excellent condition, re roofed in 2009, from where Arthur Ransome learnt to sail when he stayed at Lane Head with his good friend the artist W G Collingwood. It is reputed to be the original setting for the Swallows and Amazons stories written be Ransome.

From the boathouse you can look out over the water to Coniston Village, nestled beneath the craggy slopes of Coniston Old Man.

VIEWING By prior appointment that will include a view from the water via boat.

TENURE Freehold.
