We have stayed here several times before, the estate is very pleasent and has some good facilities. We had chosen a Coniston Lodge by Great Langdale Beck. Two friends were sharing with us, the lodge can take six, but the drop down bed in the living area is not that inviting! It was a nice surprise to see that the lodge had been recently refitted to a very high standard, lots of LED lighing and even a 12 bottle wine cooler! The two bedrooms are quite cosey, fortumatly we could use the sauna to store the luggage, we were not going to turn is on as it would run up a large electicity bill. Our room had an ensuite bathroom, which had a very good shower and a whirlpool bath. We think that the lodge had been refitted around Jan/Feb this year.
There are a few quirky things to bear in mind:
What are the timings for the heating/hot water?
There is a DAB radio in the living area, but it could not tune to any station, FM wasn't much better.
Our bedroom had a WiFi radio which I could only tune to 5 Live.
I used the gym and spa pool, both were good. My wife spotted some wild life in the pool area when a bat flew past here in the middle of the afternoon.
We did not use the bars or restaurants because we thought they very expensive.
When thinking staying here although the countryside is fantastic, it will rain sometime during your stay. Also, conpare this to a cruise from a value for money point of view, I think the cruise will win in future.
