Following a year of major refurbishment works ending in May 2016, this magnificent Georgian property has undergone a complete transformation. Located a stone's throw from Coniston village (less than a third of a mile), set on the road to the striking and historical Coppermines Valley lies this spacious Georgian home. The owners, Jane & Simon have, with much effort managed to create a home of the highest quality standards whilst carefully managing to preserve the properties outstanding historical features.

Historically Gate House had early associations with the family who developed the 19th century Coppermines, and was the home in the early 20th century to the famous lakes artist Alfred Heaton Cooper - who, at that time, renamed it 'Sondheim'. Keen to retain historical links the owners have ensured that many works of Cooper adorn the cottage walls.

From its peaceful situ the house enjoys delightful aspects overlooking the open fields to the front and the bubbling Church Beck to the rear. Whilst the outside of the property offers areas of solitude and calm, it is inside where the real allure of this beautiful home can be found. In essence Gate House is a beautiful house that has been lovingly transformed into a dream home. The perfect place for romantics, families, friends and outdoor enthusiasts alike.

Ground floor
A grand entrance porch welcomes you into this spacious property, complete with seating, boot and coat storage, the porch has been designed with functionality in mind offering the perfect place to kick off wet weather gear. Upon opening the front door you are instantly struck by the opulence of this home, a myriad of bright, inviting rooms, all waiting to be discovered. Downstairs you are spoilt for choice by not one, but three comfortable living areas. Full of charm, character and the latest mod-cons they all encompass quirky personal adornments, wood burning stoves & an abundance of cosy seating ideal for curling up in.

There's a reading room with wood burner and views to the front garden, smaller sitting room, perfect for children with smart TV with Free Sat, Blu Ray DVD, PlayStation and wood burner. Then finally the spacious house sitting room with wood burner, smart TV with Free Sat & Blu Ray DVD.

The piece de resistance can be found in the spacious kitchen & dining area which occupies the rear of the house, again complete with the latest mod cons and personal touches. Well-appointed the kitchen benefits from Belfast sink, large range cooker, dishwasher, fridge/freezer, washing machine and tumble dryer. This area offers countryside views over the paved rear garden, up Church Beck and into the woodland beyond. There's also a small separate W.C available just inside the back door.

First floor
Climbing the Georgian staircase you will find four opulent and bright bedrooms all complete with beautiful en-suite shower and/or bathrooms. There are two grand king rooms to the front of the house, a comfortable twin room to the side and another spacious king room to the rear. All bedrooms enjoy smart TV's with Free Sat, beautiful furnishings and fantastic views. The en suite bathrooms have to be seen to be believed, lavishly decorated in keeping with the Georgian era. The two free standing tubs, we imagine, would be most inviting after a long day spent on the fells.

Bedroom 1 - king size feature bed & en-suite bathroom with free standing bath, waterfall walk in shower, basin & W.C. Bedroom 1 enjoys field and village views.

Bedroom 2 - king size feature bed & en-suite shower room with waterfall walk in shower, basin & W.C. Bedroom 2 enjoys field and village views.

Bedroom 3 - twin single beds & en-suite shower room with waterfall walk in shower, basin & W.C. Bedroom 3 enjoys woodland views.

Bedroom 4 - king size feature bed & en-suite bathroom with free standing bath, waterfall walk in shower, basin & W.C. Bedroom 4 enjoys field and beck views.

Outside
Due to the properties positioning both the front and rear garden enjoy the majority of the days sun. The front garden offering two small grassed areas, perfect for sitting out on a picnic blanket. The rear garden, lovingly paved with local slate and complete with wrought iron garden furniture, offering the perfect al fresco dining area with views over the Beck and the fields beyond. There is also an abundance of parking alongside the property and should you find yourself travelling with a couple of bikes or kayaks, good news - there's a secure storage area to the rear of the property.

Our third New Year holiday in the 'new' Gate House. Fantastic week; weather was very kind including two blue sky days. All is perfect as usual. Thank you for sharing your beautiful house. Not sure when we'll be back, but we will be.

Returned a year later for another get together and so glad we did! Just as incredible as we remembered and perfect for our bi-annual get together. I spend a lot of time researching properties but have found nothing to compare with Gate House. Perfect property in perfect location. I really don't want to leave tomorrow but already planning next year. The weather has been terrible but this is when the house proves perfect; just happy to chill out here! Can't wait for our next visit.

I would like to say how blown away we were at the standard of Gate House. It was totally amazing and the best place we have ever rented in the Lakes. The owners deserve credit for the outstanding level of comfort and quality of every part of the house and their incredible attention to detail. All 3 families were raving about it and I expect we shall make a repeat booking sometime next year.

We have stayed at the Gate House five times since the renovation work. It is a lovely property and we always look forward to our stay here. It has to be one of the best properties we have ever stayed in. There is nothing in our opinion you need to improve. We just love this house.
