About Us

We are Mandy & Steve Moss, and we welcome you to Miner’s Cottage.

We live on the Fylde Coast, but have spent much of our spare time travelling to the Lake District to enjoy the many outdoor pursuits that this area has to offer. We eventually took the plunge and purchased No 39 Bank Terrace at the start of 2012.

We bought this lovely Cottage because of its superb position and its stunning views. Coniston Village is only a few minutes walk away, yet we are in a very quiet leafy lane overlooking Coniston Water with views across the lake to Grizedale Forest.

We spent the majority of 2012 renovating the cottage and transforming it into a luxurious holiday home, and most importantly, revealing many original features from this 1850 miner’s accommodation. We pride ourselves on style and cleanliness, trying our very best to ensure that everything is perfect for our guests to relax and enjoy their holiday in this beautiful part of the South Lakes.

About the Cottage

Welcome to Miner’s Cottage. The cottage dates back to the 1850’s, originally built to accommodate Miner’s and their families. As you can imagine, it has had many cosmetic makeovers over the decades, but in 2012 it was completely restored to provide a warm and cosy self catering cottage with charm, character and everything you need for a holiday for up to 4 people.

Downstairs, the front door leads straight into the lounge with 2 two-seater sofa’s set around the log burner. The large Kitchen/Dining area contains a full size fridge-freezer, Dishwasher, Electric Oven, Hob and a microwave etc, with a 6 seater dining table set up for 4 people This leads to a useful utility room which houses the washing machine, dishwasher, iron and ironing board, and a place to kick off the walking boots. There’s plenty of work space and shelving in here to store any extra items such as beer or wine! We also have a generous sized downstairs cloakroom and WC with a sink unit.

Upstairs offers a large king sized bedroom and twin bedded room with ample storage and hanging space for your items, with a family sized bathroom that includes a bath/mira shower.

All the beds will be made up for you, with a hand and bath towel on each bed. There will be some basic cleaning items in the kitchen e.g. washing up liquid, dishwasher tablets, tea towels and dishcloths.

You will need to bring your own wood for the burner. If using the wood-burner, it is advisable to lower the radiator thermostat in the lounge as the burner produces a lot of heat……we have had the front door open whilst it’s snowing outside!

The cottage is dog friendly, with many walks that are available straight from the front door, but please read our terms and conditions.

The terrace garden is the perfect place to sit for that morning cuppa or an early evening drink.

Just down the lane you will find the Sun Inn, which is a traditional, real ale pub that has a great menu and a roaring log fire throughout the winter months. There are numerous pubs and restaurants further into the village – we always try to get a table at Steam Bistro but it’s very popular and gets booked up quickly. Approximately 10 minutes along the old railway track is the Ship Inn, and both the menu and the ales are worth a visit. All the pubs in the village accept dogs, provided they are kept on their leads, and they will provide drinking water.
