We stayed for three nights at Orchard Cottage with friends. We arrived last so they picked their room first!! Both rooms were great, ours was number one and was at the front of the property. It was roomy and had a view of the old man of Coniston. It had a small bathroom with a shower. We had a good nights sleep every night. No disturbances.
Our friend’s room was bigger and had a larger bathroom with a shower. So if you like a bath, Room 2 is the one to book. Both rooms were very clean and comfortable. There is also a living room with a TV to share with the guests from the three rooms. We used this one night for a night cap, it was relaxing.
The position of the B&B could not be better. If you are booking for location and want to be in the village then this is the place for you. It is right in the heart of the village and steps away from the variety of pubs. Coniston is a lovely little village and has a surprising amount of pubs for a small area.
There are plenty of walks that start right from the front door of Orchard Cottage.
No problems with parking on site.
The breakfast was great with fresh eggs laid by the owners own free range hens. We did not go hungry.
The owners have put a firm stamp on this B&B with their strong personalities. They were both very welcoming and happy to chat. They made us all feel at home. I enjoyed my time there and would return if I go back to Coniston. I also felt that the hotel prices were more than reasonable for the quality of the room and service.
This is a good quality B&B.

Room Tip: room 2 the largest. has a bath and shower

We stayed for one night when attending a wedding in the village. This b&b is first class. Very clean, great breakfast and most importantly jean and Dave could not have been more friendly and helpful, they allowed us to check in early to change for the wedding. Dave showed my husband around the beautiful garden the next morning. We were sorry to leave and wish we could have stayed for longer.

From the time you arrive at Orchard Cottage you will feel welcome. The gardens are amazing and so was the breakfast. This B&B is in the centre of Coniston and a just a short stumble home from the pubs. The room was great and the shower was amazing. Jean also helped us plan our day trip around the district and even gave us her street directory. We would definitely stay here again. :)

What a find... Orchard Cottage, Coniston - absolutely fantastic. Jean and Dave couldn't do enough, checked in early and they'd thought of everything in the room which was most comfortable. Excellent breakfast, they were very welcoming and let us leave the car after checkout whilst we visited the Ruskin Museum across the road. We would highly recommend this B&B... if you go, be sure to ask Jean to show you her quilting and Dave the garden which was phenomenal.

It is greatly appreciated that you have taken the time to write your review. Thank you. Unfortunately the garden has taken a battering the last few days with the heavy rain
