We have just returned home from a 2 night stay at Orchard Cottage, Coniston. We are regular visitors to Coniston, usually staying at the Park Coppice Caravan site however we decided we would like to visit Coniston without the children to explore places we can’t usually explore with them. The reason we initially booked Orchard Cottage was because we were immediately attracted to all of the 5* excellent reviews, especially people commenting on the cleanliness and friendliness of Jean and Dave. It’s safe to say we were not disappointed!! We arrived at Orchard Cottage and was firstly amazed with the location! We knew it was central to Coniston but we didn’t realise how central!! We were greeted By Jean and Dave who were both extremely welcoming and friendly, and straight away we felt like we’ve known them for years! We were shown to our room (Super King Size with En-suite) and were not disappointed!! The room was very spacious and spotless with tea and coffee etc waiting for us!! The Shower was powerful and was a dream (especially after walking the Old Man of Coniston in extreme weather conditions!!) and the bed was very comfortable. The following morning again a 5* service from Jean and Dave on the breakfast, excellent quality and you could tell straight away the food was bought fresh locally!! We would give Orchard Cottage 10 stars if we could and it’s needless to say we wouldn’t stay anywhere else and will be returning next year!! Thank you Jean and Dave, see you next time, Emma & Matt x…
This is the best and lovery B&B in Conistom. If you stay in Coniston, I recommend here.My room was a cute room based on red, and my friend's room was a parple refreshing design room.The room is clean and spacious, with enough showers. The garden in front of the room is also very lovery. Breakfast is also very delicious!. I am very grateful to the hosts who is full of hospitality after all. Thank you very much for your kindness, Jean and David.I will stay here again.
Orchard Cottage is a great base for exploring the southern part of the Lake District being in the centre of the beautiful village of Coniston. Lovely spotlessly clean rooms, great breakfast and friendly hosts made for a most enjoyable stay
As seasoned walkers my wife and I have been to many b&bs over the years and can honestly say that Orchard cottage ranks up with the best of them, everything is on the doorstep (literally) pubs, restaurants, shops and even a couple of mountains right there for you to enjoy. And don’t be afraid to ask the hosts for their advice, such lovely people.
Second visit to this B & B perfectly situated in the centre of Coniston. Plenty of on sight parking is an added bonus. Room at the front of the property overlooking the pretty garden. Comfortable king size bed and really good shower in the compact ensuite bathroom. Spotlessly clean and equipped with everything you need for a perfect stay. Good strong Wifi signal. Really good breakfast selection of good quality ingredients including fresh eggs from Dave's chickens. Our number one place to stay in Coniston. Thank you Jean,Dave and Vicky.
