    • “Miners Cottage is a gem! It has been carefully and thoughtfully refurbished to a high standard and comprehensively equipped. It’s location above but near to the facilities in Coniston is ideal and the view from the front windows is breathtaking and ever changing. Altogether a holiday to remember.”

    Mr Ellerton, Wirral, November 2018

    • “We had a lovely holiday at our cottage. The cottage was perfect. It was extremely clean, comfortable and beautifully modernised. The parking was fine but we were under the impression we had two spaces and we would have been hard-pressed to park two cars. Luckily, we only had one car, so it didn't affect us. The views were great and we had a very relaxed and restful holiday.”

    Mrs Gargini, Horley, April 2018
