Easily accessible to Bowness with a bit of an uphill walk to the cottage after exploring the wonderful Lakes District. Very clean accommodation and comfortable beds. Would highly recommend. Thank you Anne and Robert for allowing us to rent this charming cottage.

Puddleduck House was by the the cleanest and best equipped we have ever stayed in. The wine, roses and homemade cake were a lovely touch. Chloe was so helpful with everything. I chatted to Sue the cleaner and she was lovely and its very obvious that she works hard to keep the house as clean as it is. This was our first time staying in Coniston but won't be our last.
