“Great cottage, clean and well equipped in a central location in Coniston.”
“We ,as a family of 5, husband ,daughter, son-in-law and grandson spend a week in this cottage at the end of August .”
Very convenient location . Coniston is a lovely village .. The location of this cottage is right in the middle of the village, and easy access to shops and pubs, ten minutes walk to the lake itself , and The Old Man of Coniston is a backdrop to the village . The cottage was spotless,and contained everything we needed for our weeks stay .We had a lot of rain so we were not able to sit outside on the patio to enjoy the river running at the back of the cottage.We had a lovely week here inspite of the weather,and we would definitely recommend.
“Lovely clean cottage, great location, great decking with view.”
A few niggles. And that’s all they are.... small bedroom is a box room and only suitable for a child, limited provisions ie no salt and pepper (not even the cellar to put it in) no spare bin bags etc all of which can be brought by the holidayer but would be good to know. Would stay again
“Perfect spot and fabulous cottage .”
“The cottage itself was really nice.”
A good size for the five of us and our dog. Some information given about the local area and some nice touches such as hand wash and basic pack of kitchen supplies. The patio area was particularly nice as we could sit and enjoy the stream whilst having a meal or relaxing. Coniston itself is stunning and was perfect for our needs. We enjoyed spending time by the lake, eating at The Black Bull and Yewdale Pubs and we even managed to make it up the Old Man. Facilities, including the local bakery and butchers were excellent and we will definitely be returning to Coniston in the future! This was all helped by the great weather we had during our stay. Only one day of rain! Our only issues with the stay was that the next door house was having some building work for 3/4 days (windows replaced) which meant a lot of banging and noise during our stay. I also think the house itself would really benefit from WiFi.
“We really enjoyed our holiday in coniston `the cottage was very clean well equipped in a central position but still quiet as it was down a private lane.”
we would book with sykes again.
“Bridge End Cottage was absolutely fantastic.”
Located in the heart of Coniston and right on the banks of the river was just perfect. Internally the cottage was immaculate and we couldn't have asked for more A little bit expensive perhaps, but I guess you get what you pay for Would definitely recommend it and would go back again
“We've enjoyed staying at Bridge End cottage for 13 years now because of its excellent location and facilities.”
After all this time though we've noticed there are a few maintenance issues that need addressing if this property is going to 'exceed' peoples' expectations. 1. The exterior paintwork on all the windows is flaking/peeling badly now and they need repainting, 2. The cream facing is coming away from the draw fronts and some of the cupboard doors in the kitchen due to heat and age, 3.The turntable in the microwave does not rotate. 4. The absence of WiFi is the only missing facility and is a particular problem due to the poor signal strength of mobile networks in Coniston. None of the above spoilt our stay in any way and are not serious issues, so we look forward to visiting Bridge End again sometime in the future.
“Lovely cottage in a great location in the centre of Coniston.”
Easy access to shops, pubs and restaurants on foot. Easy access to all locations in the Lake District by car.
“This cottage is in a prime location for us oldies visiting Coniston.”
Very comfortable and cosy with everything needed. The only drawback to prevent us giving the facilities top marks is that there is only one toilet inside the one bathroom. A downstairs toilet, just a small one would be ideal so that for five people there would be two loos. Other than this the cottage is ideal. The village is traditional and mostly unspoilt, unlike the larger towns in the Lake District. Its a great place for walking for all abilities and ages. The owner of the cottage is just across the road should there be any problems - we didn't need to contact her - but we had a warm welcome when we collected the keys. We have stayed here three times now and will, most probably, be back again soon.
“Location.property in excellent location in the village.”
Property very homely.
“Everything about this cottage is what we have wished for and has exceeded our ...”
Everything about this cottage is what we have wished for and has exceeded our expectations and we are really looking forward to our next holiday in November
