We stayed at Monk Coniston for 7 nights in June 2015 as part of a HF Holidays package. It was excellent! We hiked approximately 15 km / day with a typical elevation gain of 2000 feet and yet I managed to put on 2 kg weight. Just an illustration of the fantastic meals that came with the accommodation.

Stayed here on may bank holiday weekend for just 1 night. Room was large, clean and comfortable. Floor boards squeaked with every step, which was typical of the hotel and it's characteristics. On the whole we loved the place, as people have mentioned John was very accommodating and helpful. Breakfast was of a good standard, cooked to order, served hot... More

We stayed here for one week during an HF holidays family walking trip. The food was good and they try to purchase local products when possible. Several items we ate were grown in their own garden. The service was good and they were very accommodating to us with small children. The house manager John was incredibly helpful. It is an... More

It's hard to class this as a proper hotel as it appears to be more of a centre for a walking holiday company. The main house has a sense of faded grandeur, which I always find appealing. Our room was fine and the breakfast generous and service prompt. For breakfast you join a large circular table which is served when... More

The food was very good and we particularly liked the smoked salmon at breakfast. The packed lunches were up to the usual HF excellent standard. The staff were very pleasant and helpful.

We stayed for two nights in April 2014 in a room in the main building at Monk Coniston. The property is in a wonderful location, a mile's walk to the village of Coniston and with views from the garden to the lake. Our room was extremely comfortable with a view on to the hills. The main building is lovely and... More

Just back from a 4 night HF walking holiday. The hotel is very well managed with competent and very friendly staff. My room in the main house was warm, felt fresh and clean and had an excellent shower in the en-suite facility. Of the utmost importance was the very comfortable bed - which was much needed after a hard days... More

…and my brother and I had driven down from Scotland. We were tired and hungry. We had read the great reviews of the food here and not eaten because we were expecting a large meal.
