The Cottage in the Clouds

Low Parkamoor Cottage

Parkamoor is an off-grid, grade II listed, 16th century farmhouse, located 200 meters above the east shore of Lake Coniston.

It is the perfect retreat from modern living where you can enjoy silence and stunning views over Coniston Water and the Old Man in a remarkable and rare location.

There are no mains services and the house is served by a traditional composting toilet. There are two wood burning stoves (seasoned wood is provided) and cooking is on a gas hob.

The cottage can be booked for long weekend and full week breaks most of the year round. It sleeps a maximum of 7 people.
