We stayed at Underwood Cottage, and the accommodation was everything we could hope for. Ideal location for the walk up The Old Man of Coniston, and only a couple of minutes away by car from Coniston itself. The cottage is well equipped and modern, and the hot tub was just what was needed after a long walk - it never... More

Had two days in Lake view the room with the best view.Made my day when the field our window overlooked was full of sheep in all shapes and sizes. Helen the owner is a very pleasant lady and our cooked breakfast was the best. The whole atmosphere of the Bed and Breakfast was very relaxing. We met a nice couple... More

We had originally booked 2 nights at this B&B & loved it so much we stayed an extra night. What a lovely recommendation by family to stay at Browside. Our twin room was comfortable with a lovely outlook into the garden. Our host Helen was very welcoming and gave us great local knowledge of the area, especially the car ferry... More

After seven years of saying we'd go back to Browside we have finally done it and we should have gone back sooner and more often as this is still the best B&B in the lakes you will ever find. Helen is the best hostess you would want as she keeps Browside looking perfect and nothing is ever too much trouble... More

We booked this B & B after research on Trip Advisor and we were not disappointed at all. We are however amazed by the previous review which we feel to be unfair and judging by all other reviews not representative. Our daughter stayed in Pine View and had the previous reviewer looked closer at the outside table I think they... More

Had a lovely few days at Coniston and Browside was a great base. 5 mins drive from Coniston itself, the rooms were well furnished, immaculately clean, with great views and had a private courtyard. Helen was great about us turning up at midnight on Friday night, we parked right outside the house and the door was open, so it was... More

We have recently stayed here for one night and would certainly recommend it to anyone looking for accommodation near Coniston. Our room was lovely and spacious with fabulous views overlooking fields, hills and across to the lake - not forgetting the sheep and chickens that were roaming in the field just outside our bedroom window. The bed was extremely comfy... More

We stayed for two nights in August and can thoroughly recommend the b&b. Our room was lovely with a great ensuite and the house itself was lovely. Breakfast was also great and nothing was too much trouble for the lovely owner, Helen. The views from the room and where we ate breakfast were great. We has such a lovely stay.... More

Browside is simply brilliant. The best nights sleep i've had in ages, no traffic, total silence … perfect. A stunning location, offering excellent views from my rooms own patio via a french door. Browside is more like a holiday let rather than a b and b. I've stayed in lots of guest houses in the lakes but haven't been met... More
