COVID19 UPDATE: Swangs is taking bookings for stays from April when we are able to open again. There will be additional deep cleaning between departures and arrivals which means that departure times will be upto 10am (instead of 10.30 am) and arrival times will be 5pm (instead of 4pm). Some items such as books and cushions have been removed temporarily to reduce the number of objects in the cottage. The southern lakes is a much quieter area than places like Keswick, Windermere and Ambleside. The historic Farmers Arms (less than one minute walk) should be open again thanks to Grizedale Arts raising the funds to buy it and overseeing its rejuvination into a much needed and cherished community asset.
Swangs Cottage, Lowick Green, near Coniston in the Lake District, Cumbria, is dog friendly self catering accommodation available for rent. Our delightful, historic 16th century Lakeland farmhouse with original oak beams is an ideal base for visiting the Lake District area, in particular Coniston and the surrounding Lake District. Swangs, is a picture postcard white washed cottage. It has been sympathetically renovated and furnished to the highest standards. Swangs is full of original features, cosy and comfortable. It has the added advantage of stunning views over the Coniston Old Man range of mountains and the Crake Valley. Our cottage oozes character, style and an appreciation of the simple things in life! Swang means swamp or marsh and it is believed that our original farmhouse was built near marshland. Furthermore, the oak beams came from local ships in nearby Greenodd. Swangs Cottage is situated in a quiet, rural location in the heart of working farmland, just 3 miles from Coniston Water, in Lowick Green, standing in a row of 4 cottages on a private lane. The cottage has its own private parking for 2 cars and a lovely enclosed cottage garden with fields to the front and back. Lowick Green is a traditional village surrounded by farmland, farmed by local families throughout the ages. Lowick still hosts the annual Lowick show, an excellent display of local craft and produce and is actually located on the Cumbria Way. Lowick and nearby Sparkbridge were renowned for producing conical basketware.
