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

Excellent guest house situated in quiet location just a short walk from Coniston village. The owners were perfect hosts, nothing too much trouble, and with a huge knowledge of the local walks, activities, eating places, attractions, etc. The lounge/dining area was lovely, attractive decor, light and airy with an amazing view across the fields to the Old Man of Coniston....

As a place to stay at the end of leg 1 of the Cumbria Way, the Bluebird Lodge was exactly what we wanted - comfortable and peaceful. The owner couldn't do enough to help and small touches such as a tray in the room for dripping, muddy kit were much appreciated. Thank you!

I highly recommend Bluebird Lodge. The room was clean, peaceful, and great value. Breakfast was spot on. The hosts are among the friendliest I have ever stayed with. Great local knowledge, with guide maps provided. Fantastic view of the Old Man from the breakfast room. A great base for any holiday in the lakes; everywhere is within easy reach. Great... More

Whilst stopped in one of the apartments several years agin, 1st stay in the B&B part. Fab and comfy room. Know why friends have been staying there for years every March. Made very welcome and a great breakfast. Only a few minutes saunter out of Coniston village itself, though all the better for it as so quiet on a night,... More
