Judith and Zeke gave us an amazing 3 night stay. The price, breakfast, rooms and service were excellent. The rooms were kept clean and tidy. Judith and Zeke made sure we were comfortable and had everything we needed. The house is amazing with parking and only a short walk into Coniston village. We couldn't have asked for better hosts.

I've been stopping at Oaklands since 2004 - daywalking in the Spring & Autumn and backpacking through in May. Oaklands is simply one of the best B&Bs that I've experienced in nearly 40 yrs of visiting the Lakr District and 20 years of backpacking in the Dales & N Pennines. It is clean, unfussed, the food is good and so...

Just returned from 6 great nights in this comfortable and friendly guest house. We had fabulous views of The Old Man from our bedroom. The location is excellent, less than 5 minutes walk to anywhere in Coniston village. We will certainly be back.

We arrived here at the end of our first day on the Cumbria Way. We were warmly welcomed and shown to our room which must be blessed with one of the best views in the Lake District. The room was immaculately clean and extremely comfortable. Breakfast was generous, with fresh fruit and cereal options. Close to the centre of Coniston.
