    • “Very comfortable and well equipped property in an excellent location for restaurants and Coniston Water.”

    Mrs Tyrrell, Lowestoft, October 2018

    • “Location and the cosy, compact nature of the accommodation. The Bistro 'Steam next door was outstanding as were the pubs next in the village for hospitality, beet and the quality of food. There's excellent access to Coniston Waters and lots of interesting walks. We're looking forward to returning soon, hopefully during Easter.”

    Mr Hassen, Sandys, October 2018

    • “Apartment was in the perfect location, clean and very well presented. Coniston itself is lovely. Climb the old man, it’s hard but you will be very pleased with yourself. The artisan bakery for pizza, fantastic. Little cafe next to apartment perfect for breakfast if you can’t be bothered to cook your own. We would recommend Swallows nest and Sykes definitely and we will be back.”

    Mrs Jones, Bradford, July 2018

    • “Outdoor table & chairs are in front small "garden" very near to the 2 refuse bins and looking onto a reasonably busy road - not ideal. But flat was very comfortable, especially the bed, and overall well equipped.Excellent powerful shower.”

    Mrs Wharton, Teignmouth, June 2018

    • “Swallows Nest is just perfect for a retreat in the lovely village of Coniston. The flat had everything that we needed and the views are amazing. Thank you.”

    Mrs Elks, DERBY, May 2018

    • “This was my second visit to Swallow Nest and it was just as good the second time as it was the first. I very much enjoyed my stay and would highly recommend it. Very comfortable and clean accommodation. Quiet. Close to shops, eateries and 15min walk to the lake. Lucked out on the weather again! Great relaxing holiday!”

    Miss Carter-brown, York, May 2018

    • “The flat was very well equipped and the owners have thought of everything from an apron for the kitchen and a clothes brush! The kitchen had been left with washing up liquid, dish washer tablets, and a few tea bags and coffee. The bed is comfy and there's plenty of hot water after a long day's hiking. Since it is in the centre of Coniston, shops and pubs are only a few minutes walk away.”

    Mrs Thorpe, Norwich, April 2018

    • “Great location. Very well equipped property.”

    Ms Bailey, Selkirk, July 2017

    • “We loved this holiday, a home from home. Great location and lovely local pubs and restaurants. There were several walking routes and leaflets showing us what activities were available in the local area.”

    Miss Cresswell, Sunderland, October 2015
