Great welcome from Ann with tea and cake on arrival. Room mini-bar/fridge had complimentary milk and cooled water, and there was a great cake provided too for late night nibbles. Room was comfortable and clean with a view of the Old Man of Coniston too. This B&B is closest to the Priestley Centre for those who are visiting old University... More

Our second visit to The Old Rectory which was again most enjoyable. A good location for walking. No need to move the car. Ann's cooking is very good .. we had a DBB arrangement. A large breakfast to start the day and a delicious varied evening meal after a good days' walking. Christine and Claire on hand for breakfasts +... More

After a very good few days in London, we came up to the Lake District and stayed at The Old Rectory Coniston (there is another with a very similar name in Millom so be sure you go to the one you booked!). On our arrival we were given tea and cakes in the lounge (quite unexpected). The ginger cake was... More

Excellent hospitality, warm, friendly with a very personal touch from the proprietor Ann. Amazing home cooked food, lovely rooms in beautiful surroundings. Would highly recommend this gem of a B&B as a cosy base as you explore the Lake District and the peaceful surroundings of Coniston. Would go again!

My family of 4 stayed in the Garden Room, there was everything you needed, views from the patio area were beautiful. It is the perfect location to explore the Lake District. Very impressive breakfast, would definitely reccomend.

We recommend this establishment to anyone who likes straightforward food prepared and cooked to perfection. The property is clean and well maintained,the staff efficient and helpful. Mrs Sealy the friendly but unobtrusive owner and cook ,clearly works hard to make her guests stay a relaxing pleasure. We will be back!

We recently stayed at the Old Rectory and would have no hesitation in recommending it to other travellers, We booked dinner in advance and the menu choice was adapted with no problem to meet our needs. The breakfast was lovely and the rooms were very comfortable with nice touches such as fresh milk in the mini bar, home made cakes... More

I can recommend the Old Rectory with no hesitation. My wife and I stayed there for two nights, and had it not been for our flight leaving next day, we would have enjoyed a longer stay. The room was clean and welcoming, the bed very comfortable, a mini bar with a good selection of drinks, a coffee maker and the... More

Very welcoming. Met with tea in sitting-room with home baking. Further home-baking in our room. Superb views from the dining room. Dinner menu looked excellent, but must be pre-booked. Will certainly stay here again.
