The house is very near the center of Coniston, a 2 minute walk only. I hadn't realised when I booked the house that Coniston itself is a little way away from the lake, and the lake itself is bordered by trees so there are no views to be had unless you walk down to the water. Having said that, the views up to Coniston Old Man from the garden at the back are stunning. We had two lovely evenings sitting in the garden looking up at the scenery. The garden itself was a sad affair, but maybe not so surprising given the amazing heatwave in place. The house is well equipped, a knife sharpener would have been good as all were pretty blunt. In keeping with other reviews, we never met Chloe, but she was very responsive to e-mails. I don't think we will return to Coniston, having seen all that we want to see in this part of the world, but if we ever did, I would return to this house.
Spent 4 nights at this fabulous cottage, it was well located for us to visit the Lakes and surrounding area. The owner Heather Rhodes added some really nice surprises, like home made cake, and wine cooling in the fridge. The only thing missing was a hair dryer, because travelling by motorbike we were short of space to take our own, we would definitely recommend the cottage to family and friends
Thanks for letting us stay
