Ringhouse Cottages lies amid the unspoilt rolling countryside of the Woodland Valley in a delightful setting in the heart of the Lake District National Park, between Coniston and Broughton in Furness. Set amid approximately 3 acres of gardens and grounds, the original farmstead was built in the 1600s, but ceased being used as a farm in 1968. Much work was undertaken in 1992 to convert the Bank Barn and Farm Buildings to form separate self-catering holiday cottages with characterful owners’ house. This new lease of life for Ringhouse has formed not only a lovely house, but a good income stream and allowed many happy visitors to enjoy the wonderful countryside of the edge of the Lake District National Park.

Ringhouse Cottages lies in a delightful swaithe of rolling countryside between Broughton in Furness and Coniston. An oft-forgotten corner of the Lake District, this area provides a charm and tranquillity often missed in central Lakeland. To the north and east rise the Woodland Fells with the Coniston Fells and Lake Coniston beyond. Broughton in Furness is the nearest village at about four miles away while Coniston Village and Lake Windermere are beyond. This makes Ringhouse Cottages an ideal base to explore the southwestern lakes and fells.

Ringhouse Holiday Cottages was acquired in 2000 by the present owners, who saw much potential in this property in such a tranquil location. They set about reconfiguring the accommodation to provide themselves with a spacious house, West Barn, and three holiday letting cottages. With a view to ease of management, they have recently let West Barn on an Assured Shorthold Tenancy, but there is much potential additional income to bring this back into holiday use, when it comes vacant later this year. Additionally, further en suite facilities have been added and a particularly large workshop and garage as well as upgrading all of the cottages to a very high standard has been completed. Having enjoyed their many years at Ringhouse, the owners are looking to retire to live locally.

The Property

Ringhouse Cottages are built around a central courtyard with West Barn, Stable Croft and Fell View built of local stone and under a slate room with accommodation on three floors. On the other side of the courtyard are Latter Rigg and Ring House, which are of rendered, two storey construction and under a slate roof.
