“Comfortable Stay”
Reviewed September 11, 2017 for a stay in September 2017

We had a comfortable stay,the house had everything you could need,the weather was not good for us but we still got out and about,very comfy beds and yes the stairs are quite steep!!Very central to pubs,cafes and shops.
Two small niggles,the blinds let light in,middle floor rooms(just down the edges).
Neighbours at one side were noisy.
Enjoyable stay,many thanks.

Thank you for your review - glad you had a good stay! Pleased you loved the comfy beds and close proximity to the pubs and shops. Thank you for your comment regarding the blinds - we have realised now that during the summer there is a little light that creeps in at the edges and will put up curtains in addition for 2018. Many thanks again for your booking! Chloe x

“Perfect Holiday Home”
Reviewed August 15, 2017 for a stay in August 2017
1
person found this review helpful

Puddleduck House is situated in a quiet street within 2 minutes walk from all the amenities of Coniston. We found the house to be spotlessly clean and extremely well equipped with everything you could wish for.
The 3 bedrooms were very comfortable and spacious and the main bathroom deserves special mention with a huge roll top bath as well as the shower.
There were freshly cut flowers to welcome our arrival as well as a bottle of wine and a sumptious strawberry cheesecake.
Coniston itself is only a small village but there are 3 pubs, (The Yewdale Pub has the most welcoming bar staff I have ever come across) and plenty of shops for groceries and the usual range of gift and outdoor wear shops. A 15/20 minute drive brings you to the busy town of Ambleside if you need anything less relaxing.
We have rented properties in the Lake District for several years now and Puddleduck House if definitely the best we have found so far.

“Perfect place”
Reviewed June 18, 2017 for a stay in June 2017

If like most people you pick out a few places to wittle down till you decide which place to stay at , stop now and book puddleduck up straight away , this lovely house is so comfortable and spacious with every thing in the house you could possibly wish for .it is also in a great location in the beautiful village of Coniston just about 200yds from all the great dog friendly pubs and all the little shops . There are so many great walks in the nearby surrounding areas too, making this the ideal place to stay . Would not hesitate in booking up again when we visit the lakes next time

“Fantastic”
Reviewed June 14, 2017 for a stay in June 2017

Wow what a house! A minutes walk to the village centre and all shops and pubs and a five minute stroll to the famous coniston lake. On arrival we found a bottle of wine and a gorgeous homemade cheesecake. Everything we needed was there, tea, coffe, sugar, milk, shower gel, washing powder etc etc so no quick dash to the shops on arrival. The house it's self was wonderful especially the top floor bathroom. The garden is a little off set to the property but not a problem. The garage was a bonus and there's a Webber BBQ. The views from the property and garden were glorious. All in all we'd return in a heartbeat. Chloe the owner was amazing before, during and after our stay. The residents that live in number 9 were so welcoming and full of useful advice on the area that we found helpful.

“What a superb location Coniston is and Puddleduck House is just fantastic!”
Reviewed June 14, 2017 for a stay in September 2016

We truly did have a great holiday in Coniston and Puddleduck House is fantastic. We were two couples and it was great to have our own en suite on different floors. The bathroom upstairs is just perfect, so beautifully equipped and decorated, as is the whole house in fact. I really can't fault Puddleduck House. Also Coniston is a superb place to stay with shops, pubs and restaurants all virtually at the end of the road. The lake, which is just a short walk away, was the star of the show for me, i's beauty is stunning and photographer's dream! We also got out and about a bit including going to the motor museum nearby and having a go at segwaying in Grizedale Forest. We will be going back!

Thank you so much for your review - so thrilled you had such a lovely time! Glad you enjoyed photographing the lake - it looks so different (but equally lovely) in all different types of weather. I've not tried the Segway experience - on the to do list! Look forward to seeing you again! Chloe x

“Wonderful House in Fabulous Location”
Reviewed June 14, 2017 for a stay in May 2017

We had a lovely stay in Puddleduck House and heartily recommend it to anyone. The property was beautifully furnished, clean and very welcoming. The garden has views of the mountains and the house is situated just a few yards from the village center – no steep hills to climb, which is a bonus with young children. We spent most of our days locally around the lake but also ventured out by foot to Tarn Hows and by car to the villages of Hawkshead and Ambleside – the scenery is simply wonderful all around. You don’t need to leave the village though as there is so much to see and do right from the cottage door. Loved being in Puddleduck, hope to return very soon!
