We spent two nights at the Yewdale hotel in one of their family rooms. The owners and staff are very friendly and welcoming. The hotel is ideally located in the heart of Coniston and is clean and traditional. Our family room at the front of the hotel gave us a wonderful view of the Old Man of Coniston.
Parking at the front of the hotel is limited to about four cars. However it's managed well by the owners as guests out walking can just leave their car keys at reception and staff will move the car if it's blocking in other guests. This might not be to everyones liking but we thought it was practical and sensible. There is alternative free parking about 200 yards from the hotel in a nearby country lane.
We did not have an evening meal on site but the breakfast was excellent. We had a problem with the shower on our first morning but once we brought it to the attention of the owner he quickly fixed it himself whilst we had breakfast. The hotel could probably benefit from a few more members of staff to help out at busy times but that said the new owners managed admirably and we wish them luck for the future. We would certainly stay again at the Yewdale.
