This was my second stay at Oaklands and, as before, Judith and Zeke made me feel very welcome. The room was comfirtable, as was the bed; the breakfast was just right to set me up for a day on the fells. Talking of which, Oaklands is a perfect location for not only coniston, but also the Langdales and most of... More

We stayed at Oaklands two nights while walking the Cumbria Way. This was definitely the best place we stayed during that week. Judith and Zeke immediately made us feel very welcome. Our room was very clean and comfortable. We had a great sleep, needed after a long day on the trail. Breakfast was excellent, great cooking! Judith and Zeke were... More

My daughter's partner knew we wanted to stay another night in the area so that we could help out with occupying our grandsons. He knocked on the door and luckily there was a room vacant for the night. We had a lovely comfortable room overlooking the garden and bowling green. There was a kettle, an assortment of drinks, milk and... More

Stayed with my wife for only one night (wish we could of stayed for more family commitments and all that) it was fabulous. The couple who own the house were very friendly and only too happy to answer any questions we had. We stayed in a lovely room and as soon as we set foot inside the house we just... More

The room was specious, bright and welcoming. Judith is a great host, very helpful and serves a healthy full English breakfast. We highly recommend it to anyone. The bed was extremely comfortable. The guest house is close to the center of town with lovely view of Coniston Old man mountain.

We have just spent 4 nights at Oaklands and would recommend it to anyone. Judith and Zeke are wonderful hosts making you feel at home. With the excellent breakfast to give the needed energy for our 3 walks and a comfortable bed to rest our weary bones what more could you want.

We stayed here as we were doing part of the Cumbria Way. We chose this place as it had the most reasonable rates, but it was just perfect! Lovely clean room with an en suite, great breakfast the next morning and lovely owners of the b&b who couldn't do enough for us. Made us feel very welcome. Thanks once again!... More

Great rooms, Great Breakfast. Everything you want in a guest house. Friendly owners and good value for money. Ideally situated for walking activities as there are plenty of walks you can do straight from the door. We tackled the Old Man of Coniston.

Oaklands owners are among the most friendly guesthouse owners we've encounterd during our stay in England. The accommodation offers a great view on The Old Man, a clean shower and bad (which was a door away in the hall for us) and a good double bed. As said the owners friendly and warm-hearted helpfulness really made our visit complete. Coniston... More
