Stayed here as part of a walking holiday with inclusive meals/packed lunch. Was told my room, on the ground floor of the main building, was smaller than average but was just right for me with comfortable bed, TV (which I never used), bathroom with shower, and kettle. Wide selection of cereals, fruits and 'to-order' hot breakfast items as well as... More

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

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
