Great central location (no hills to climb to the cottage like last time we stayed in Coniston) and the house was warm, very clean and the extra touches like flowers, cake and milk were very welcome after a long journey up. All three bedrooms are spacious – we chose to stay up in the master room and enjoyed looking across rooftops to the mountains. There is also an en-suite room and a family room on the middle floor – both good sizes but we didn’t need to use them. The bathroom was fantastic – lovely roll top bath and separate shower. The lounge is great and we enjoyed lighting the log-burner – not that you need it as the house has central heating, but my partner insists we light it anyway as he loves a fire and we don’t have one at home. There is a dining room too and the kitchen is great and has everything you need to do home cooking. I used the slow cooker too, which was great to come back to after our walk up Coniston Old Man. We did lots of walking during our stay and lots of exploring. Got lost many times, but that’s down to our poor map-reading skills. Certainly enjoyed a pint or two at the pub after a long days hiking. Pubs are great and we did like walking up to The Sun Inn as it has lovely views. Tried to get into Steam as everyone seemed to like it in the visitors book, but couldn’t get in. All in all a great holiday – we love the Lake District even more than we did before and will certainly ask to stay at Puddleduck House again if its available.
