At last, we found accommodations that is perfect for our needs. Excellent location, very clean, safe parking facilities. Very generous, delicious English breakfast, magnificent views. We can walk to the village in just 5 minutes where we found the Black Bull. They served beautiful meals and had a mini brewery. The lake was about 7 minutes away with a cafe... More

We can't recommend this B&B highly enough! Perfectly situated on the edge of the village and very close to the lake this well kept, pretty B&B is very comfortable - like a home from home but no housework. The hosts are friendly and nothing is too much for them they genuinely want you to be happy, comfortable and they keep... More

Had a first-class stay at Bluebird Lodge. It is superbly located a very pleasant ten minute walk from the village and five minutes from Coniston Water. The room was spacious, comfortable and well-equipped and the breakfast was superb. Paul and Deborah were excellent hosts. Coniston Old Man looked down on us as we took breakfast in the conservatory. Highly recommended.... More

We started our 4-night stay by getting off the bus from Windermere at the Bus Stop right in front of the Bluebird Lodge. We were perfectly placed for walks around the lake and up into the hills; and within easy walking distance of Coniston and the shops & pubs. We had the most beautiful bright and airy room (with very... More

We stayed two nights June 9-10. While the accommodation was fine the innkeepers were unhelpful. First we asked about the laundry mentioned on their website and the owner was surprised since they had no laundry. He said several people had asked about it so he needed to check the website! Really! You've owned the place for 6 months and still... More
