My third stay at this guest house though the first time on my own. I had a double bed to myself with a fantastic view of the Old Man, and the green fields of Coniston. My room was spotless and had tea making facilities. I had to use the bathroom next door, which I thought was just for my use... More

We really enjoyed our 4 nights here at Oaklands. The guesthouse was only 5 minutes walk from the centre of town. Judith our hostess was friendly and helpful and gave advice about walks and places to visit. Our room was fresh and clean with views to die for, and the ensuite shower room, although small, was spotless. The full cooked... More

We arrived in Coniston early for our 2 week stay in a cottage, but were warmly welcomed by Judy and Zeke. Their knowledge of the area, trove of books and maps, and recommendations were over and above the comfort of our room. After 2 days walking in the rain, our return to the warm house was a treat, and only... More

We have just stayed at Oaklands for 3 nights in the double en suite room. The room was spacious and scrupulously clean. There is a view towards the village but also a spectacular view of Coniston Old Man. The location is spot on as only a 2 minute walk to the shops and pubs. Judith is very welcoming and friendly....

We stayed for three nights, and the views from our double room with en suite were stunning. Great location to get into Coniston and further afield into the Lake District. Great breakfast - with fruit, toast, ceral, yogurts and a full English. We also had poached eggs on toast one morning, which Judith was more than happy to provide. Judith... More

Me and my lad stayed here for one night. Bedroom each with our own shared bathroom. My bedroom perfectly adequate. Tea/coffee and usual things plus a few extras like headache pills and finger plasters. Pills could get owners into trouble with the 'elf and safety brigade! Could have done with some biscuits but this is a small detail. Breakfast very... More
