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

Our first time here and will not be our last. Judith and zeke are really friendly, our room was spotless and spacious with a very comfortable bed for a great night sleep after a long walk up the Old Man. Breakfast was excellent, and if your lucky you might get to try some homemade cakes "very nice". Thanks for a... More

Me and my friend stayed at Oaklands Guesthouse on our route doing the Cumbria Way this summer. The room was big and super clean, and the beds very comfortable. We enjoyed a lovely English Breakfast, of which I specially liked the sausages (the previous night in another B&B we were given highly processed sausages that were left on the plate... More

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
