I stayed at this hotel with my partner only for 1 night as a trip to the lake district. The hotel had lots of character and john was very friendly and welcoming. The breakfast was very nice and they had a wide chose of things to eat for everyone's dietary needs. The hotel was clean and tidy, it was very... 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

Stayed here for 3 nights in April with our walking group. Its a beautiful house in a superb location with good walks from the door. 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. My single room... More

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. I entered the main hall and had to wander around looking lost for nearly 15 minutes before I finally located someone who appeared to work... More

I stayed here in September 2013 on an HF walking week. Despite torrential rain, it was a brilliant week due to the quality of the house team and excellent catering. As a single woman traveller, HF is a great way to enjoy guided walking and meet some interesting folk along the way. You will return half a stone heavier but... More

Just had two nights away in the Lakes with husband at this HF country house. It is owned by the National Trust and leased to HF. We enjoyed exploring the grounds and the grandeur of the rooms. There is nothing to fault, comfortable bed, very clean. The food was fantastic, I thought the trout with mint and wine sauce was... More
