We have just returned from spending a night at Orchard Cottage in Coniston. It is perfectly situated in the centre of the vilage less than 50m from the nearest village pub! On arrival we were made to feel very welcome after a long hard day walking the Old Man. Our bedroom (Number 2) was lovely and warm and the en-suite bathroom had a bath and separate shower. There was lots of hot water for a relaxing bath - perfect! The next morning a delicious breakfast was served by Jean. If you want a central base to walk in the Coniston area then I wholeheartedly recommend Orchard Cottage. We will certainly return!
