    • “Lovely location and surrounding area. Beautiful view from the garden/sitting out area. Everywhere accessible by car - we think it may have been a long walk into Coniston itself and we weren't sure how to get there so we only drove in. We had three lovely cruises on the lakes but particularly enjoyed the "Gondola" on Coniston Water, we drove through the three passes including Kirkstone and Wrynose, visited "Hill Top" the former home of Beatrix Potter (go early, it is timed admittance and gets very busy!), the Lakeland Motor Museum, Hawkshead (very pretty pedestrianised village) and enjoyed some lovely walks (Esthwaite Water and Tarn Hows). Also can thoroughly recommend the "Bluebird Café" (beautifully clean and the cakes are awesome) overlooking Coniston Water and the supermarket "Booths" in Windermere, lots of choice and fresh produce. All in all a lovely, relaxing holiday with a comfortable cottage to come home to each day. A vacuum cleaner at the property would have been handy as we had muddy shoes some days!”

    Mrs Warren, Bedford, August 2018

    • “A lovely cottage in a beautiful location. We were blessed with wonderful weather during the week and so made use of the outside space. The views from the garden down to Coniston water were superb! So quiet and peaceful, great for that glass of wine! A few negative's, no bowl in the kitchen for making a salad, and only 1 bathroom hand towel, plus a little short on any cleaning materials. Other than that we very much enjoyed our stay.”

    Mrs Jennings, BENFLEET, June 2018

    • “We loved Gables End cottage. We found it to be beautifully furnished, comfortable and the garden with our own sitting area overlooking Coniston water was stunning!! The owners were particularly kind and helpful! We hope to return one day.”

    Ms Fennel, Foresthill, June 2018

    • “The cottage was really nice. Beautifully situated and surrounded by lovely gardens. Only improvement was there could have been more supplies at the cottage including cleaning supplies. xxx OWNER RESPONSE xxx Thank you Mr. Smart for your booking. We're delighted you enjoyed Gable End and its location. We don't supply cleaning materials (apart from washing up liquid, dishwasher tablets and washing powder) as the cottage is professionally cleaned after each booking. Please do visit us again.”

    Mr Smart, Chelmsford, March 2018

    • “We had the most amazing week at Gable End. We were so impressed with beautiful cosy cottage we will definitely be visiting again. The grounds and scenery are breathtaking. The owners were extremely helpful when we had to cut our holiday short by one day as the heavy snow and adverse weather made it difficult to get our car down onto the main roads. He actually drove our car down for us!!! Something we were not familiar with due to the bad snow and ice. We were so grateful and after a ten hour journey (which should have only taken 6 1/2 hours) we finally made it safely home. Now that is what we call first class service.”

    Mr Robinson, Southend-on-Sea, February 2018
