Just returned from 6 great nights in this comfortable and friendly guest house. We had fabulous views of The Old Man from our bedroom. The location is excellent, less than 5 minutes walk to anywhere in Coniston village. We will certainly be back.

We arrived here at the end of our first day on the Cumbria Way. We were warmly welcomed and shown to our room which must be blessed with one of the best views in the Lake District. The room was immaculately clean and extremely comfortable. Breakfast was generous, with fresh fruit and cereal options. Close to the centre of Coniston.

Well after arriving half way through the night as the previous plan (a quite loud, noisy and rough campsite turned out to be our idea of a nightmare) we arrived outside oaklands and called on the off chance there would be a room..

We stayed one night on a walking holiday. Judith was very friendly and accommodating. The room was lovely and very comfortable. The breakfast was generous and tasty! Apparently business is slow for the Lake District after the winter floods - please come and support the wonderful local businesses! The Lake District is definitely open for business!

Hope the rest of your walk went, at least it stayed dry, thank you for staying with the walking company, there are a lot of walks around Coniston, it is the perfect place for leaving your car and walking from the house. We hope you will return, Judith and Zeke. More
