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

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.

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
