Very nice to have sheep grazing in adjoining field and an abundance of lovely garden birds feeding on bird feeder and occasional rabbit visitor. Well provided for cottage with washing machine and dishwasher, plus TV with freeview and DVD player. Nice selection of DVD's, plus various guides and maps for locality. Bed very comfortable. Will definitely book again.”

    • “We had a lovely stay last week in this cottage. It was very clean with all the necessities you needed. comfy bed although a little squeaky , warm as toast. The view across the valley was good but the best view were the little blue tits and the resident woodpecker just out side the patio doors. So many of then flying around all day. The only crit was that we could only stay 5 night and even though we are not in high season we had to pay for the full week which would stop us using it again next year . Sykes gave a quote for a shorter period but when we came to book they said it was a booking error and we had to pay the full price. After looking at so many properties we couldn't be bothered to start looking again. But as far as the accommodation, garden and cleanliness it couldn't be faulted.”

    • “I think the cottage was great - my only criticism is the bed being very small and for us for this reason it felt a bit uncomfortable. But loved the cottage decor and kitchen/bathroom had absolutely everything you needed. The garden is a real bonus- beautiful and with views of the lake. Paths to Coniston from the property not walkable due to accessibility (if you either were wheelchair user or have a pram it’s a no no)- so a point could be made but it doesn’t claim to be a family property so i suppose it’s up to us to ask those questions next time. Overall I would definitely recommend it to a couple wanting a stay in the lakes.”

    • “Would be great next time to have extra towels but apart from that perfect”

    Miss Sawford, Nottingham, August 2018

    • “Lovely accommodation in a quiet part of the Lake District. Everything was spotlessly clean and the garden with its wild life was an added bonus. Lots of walks within easy walking reach of the accommodation and I never used the car once during the holiday.”

    Mr Noel, MORPETH, July 2018

    • “Cottage was brilliant great view and location for walks excellent. Food shopping in Coniston is very limited but local pub grub is excellent”

    Mr Knowles, Edinburgh, June 2018

    • “Second visit to this property. If you like peace & quiet in a rural location, enjoy the great outdoors with walks from the doorstep, then this is a property for you. Clean, modern, well equiped & a comfortable home from home. The wildlife in the garden is very entertaining.”

    Mrs Crawford, Leeds, May 2018

    • “Very good location the wildlife was amazing very peaceful its second time going to coniston,ideal for people who need to get away from the stress's of life would go again thank you.”

    Mrs Osman, BROADSTAIRS, April 2018

    • “Cottage was lovely and cosy and peaceful. Fully equipped. Wi-Fi would be good, hopefully will return here.”

    Miss Ceri, BURNHAM-ON-SEA, September 2017

    • “Great location for exploring the Lake District, easy to get to most areas. Cottage had many extras which were appreciated EG dishwasher tablets, a simple thing you would not think to bring along. Thank You”

    Mr Johnson, Romford, August 2017

    • “As above all fine, maybe worth while erecting a mirror at the road end, as exiting from the cottage lane onto the road is on a blind corner, an accident waiting to happen possibly.”

    Mr Rae, Stirling, March 2017

    • “I realise that it is self catering but all that was supplied was a few dishwasher tablets and two cheap toilet rolls. No welcome pack, we have always had one but here not even a pint of milk. There was no hand wash in the bathroom and no bleach for the toilet. There is a washing machine but not even a couple of tablets left for that. A bit of a let down after two jolly good bed and breakfasts and a week in a brilliant apartment in Pittenweem. The cottage itself is lovely and the little garden is perfect and if you want to pack your kitchen sink this is for you.”

    Mrs Knight, Haslemere, June 2018
