Lovely stay, facilities very much suited needs of a chill out few days Monday to Friday. Centrally located in Coniston within reach of all local facilities. Nice clean, cosy property, plenty of space for us and the dogs, bedrooms & bathrooms lovely and open real fire in lounge area. Loved having use of the hot-tub....this was an added bonus !...

Very comfortable, and we like the cottages with a fire - good for falling asleep in front of with a good book to relax and forget the troubles left...

We stayed at Poppy Cottage and it was amazing. The cottage is in such a fantastic location with brilliant views but close enough to the village to be able to enjoy the best of both worlds. Can't wait to go back, it was perfect.
