Mountain View Bed and Breakfast
Ranked #12 of 15 Coniston B&B and Inns
Reviewed August 18, 2012

We could hardly believe our eyes when we were shown to our 'living quarters'... The B&B has one bedroom, and a comfortable living room and kitchen, as well as a spacious and spotlessly-clean bathroom. The view over the mountain is breath-taking. Breakfast was delicious, and Melanie was extremely friendly. We cannot wait for a second visit.

Mountain view B & B has everything you could wish for - beautiful views, great location next to the village of Coniston and a delicious full breakfast brought over by Melanie every morning. We really enjoyed our stay and could not fault it in any way. The cottage is kept immaculately clean with fresh towels left every day and a whirlpool bath which was great for relaxing the muscles after a long days hike.
In regards to local walks - We hiked up the 'Old man of Coniston' on the first day - this you can do from your front door and is a great walk with Spectacular views. On the second day we walked into Grizedale forest with the starting point only a 10 minute drive away.
All in all, a perfect trip to the lakes and I would recommend this B & B to all.

Mountain View B and B made the perfect base for us (retired Australian couple) to explore the Lake District. Coniston itself is much quieter than the bigger nearby towns. We loved being two minutes walk from the village, with restaurants, pubs, shops etc. The self-contained flat at MountainView B and B was cosy and perfect for us. Features we appreciated: huge home-cooked breakfast with choices, fast internet, great view, friendly hosts who were there when we needed them, but let us get on with our holiday when we didn't. We will remember Coniston and Melanie's MountainView B and B long after we have forgotten faceless hotels.

What smashing little place! Immaculately clean and tidy, nicely furnished, amazing views and you get your own living room and kitchen - perfect!! Bedroom and bathroom are both pretty big - and the bath is a whirlpool! Shower very decent too. The landlady is a star: made us feel really welcome and cooked a great breakfast. We cant wait to come back!

We booked this b & b last minute and I can honestly say I have never booked something that has surpassed my expectations. The location was excellent and the mountain view was unbelievable,such a pleasure to wake up to.
Although it is b n b it is so much more than that, the space is used so well. It is such a relaxing home from home and the jacuzzi bath is a welcoming extra after a long walk.
We will be definately booking again
Thank you so much for adding to our perfect weekend away.

Stayed at the Mountain View for 3 nights over New years weekend. The B&B was so much better than other B&Bs I'd stayed in as you've got complete use of what would be a self-contained cottage (but you get breakfast thrown in too!). The cottage was really lovely, had everything we could have wanted and the view over the Old Man of Coniston was amazing.

Melanie was really friendly and was very flexible in when to bring breakfast (especially after New Years Eve!). Was a really good breakfast too!

Definitely the best B&B I've stayed in. Would recommend anyone thinking of staying in Coniston to definitely stay at Mountain View.

This was built to be a holiday cottage and caught out by planning changes, so it is now a B&B with a nicely presented bedroom, self-contained bathroom, living room & kitchen/dining room. This was all ours until a good cooked breakfast appeared on the dot at 8:30 in the morning as ordered.

We so loved having our own private space in which we could really relax that we decided to pass up on eating out, raid the Co-op five minutes down the street, and spend the evening "at home" watching Monty Python on the DVD (provided). We splashed out on what we bought, but obviously still saved significantly on what we would have spent.

We brought our 12 year old son; there was plenty of room for him to camp on the floor in the bedroom and, as we didnt use the sofa bed downstairs, Melanie gave us a reduction off the per person rate.

We can't fault the accomodation, service or price, but the weather was definitely not up to scratch, and the Old Man had to be left unclimbed. So we will be back.
