Thank you for writing your review, isn't it lovely that we are having a summer where you can sit and watch the World go by whilst having your breakfast. Our own ducks are often the source of the entertainment as they have their regular walk out in the front garden each morning. More

We had no idea what to expect when we turned up at the Orchard Cottage absolutely soaked through to the skin - we had walked from Grasmere through several hours of very heavy rain. We were met by one of the family to a warm and friendly welcome; they immediately put up a drying maiden to dry off our clothes... More

How unlucky were you with the weather as we are having such a scorching summer? We are used to drying people out when they arrive but this year wet guests have definitely been in the minority but we do have all the facilities to dry you out. Hope you enjoyed the rest of your walking holiday. Thank you for your... More

Stayed for a few days to have a touring base for The Lakes. Accommodation was first rate with a very friendly and efficient family staff. The room was immaculate with a very good power shower in the en-suite. Fantastic breakfast and willingness to provide whatever you wanted within reason. On site parking is indeed a bonus. I would have no... More

Very pleasant stay. Rooms comfortable and spacious bathroom. Beds a little hard and decor a little old fashioned . Jean and David were very welcoming and breakfast was good with David's own honey. Location was good and parking. Would recommend this b&b .

Myself and my girlfriend stayed here for one night based on the great reviews. The B&B is a great set-up and situated in the heart of Coniston village, stones throw away from the local pubs and a short distance to stagger home to after a few of the local ales. Our room was spacious and immaculately clean, huge super king... More

Stayed here recently based on tripadviser reviews, however, we were slightly disappointed. Our room was small and the bed can only be described as hard, so I didn't get a great night's sleep. Not for us.

Ideally situated in the village & a very warm welcome on arrival. Delicious cooked breakfast & super fresh fruit salad on offer. Together with home produced honey, what more can you want. Loved it - just sorry we haven't stayed here on previous visits.

Excellent accomodation and very welcoming and friendly hosts. Secure garage for our bikes which was no trouble and much appreciated. Breakfast was spot on each morning and set us all up for the day. A really enjoyable stay and hope to return soon, many thanks. Dave V

A tired walking family were made very welcome. Children delighted to have their own ensuite. Great solar powered shower, fairtrade tea and coffee, thought to B+B layout. Great firm bed! Lovely breakfast, and very kind welcome, and very kindly wrapped up a pair of left-behind glasses for us for the Sherpa van man.

We stayed here for a 2 night mid week break, and picked it for its central location and good reviews on trip advisor. We were not disappointed. The Black Bull is just a stagger over the road, and Jean is a lovely, friendly host. The room we had was large, comfortable and clean. We had a good nights sleep, and... More
