About this property

With breathtaking views to the Coniston Fells and Harter Fell, perched high in the hills of the beautiful Duddon Valley, this property is truly is in a world of its own.

Dunnerdale is a beautiful valley in the south west of the Lake District sitting between the Coniston Valley to the east, the Langdale Valley to the north, and Eskdale and Wasdale to the west. The clear waters of the River Duddon, one of the Lake District's last remaining salmon rivers, cascade through the hills. Walk or cycle from the front door, leaving your car behind for the week. A particularly lovely walk is along Grass Guards Ghyll, past Ghyll Spout Waterfall on the Grass Guards Estate and over Fickle Steps. The old market town of Broughton is a lovely village with a local shop, award winning butcher, and local pubs or head over the hills to the well known village of Coniston and enjoy a day out on the lake with plenty of activities to choose from. Alternatively, take a ride on the steam train from Boot in the Eskdale Valley to the Roman town of Ravenglass.
