“Weekend Break”
Reviewed 12 September 2013

Had a fantastic stay. Lovely 2 bedroom apartment, all mod cons,own kitchen and bathroom, spotlessly clean, comfy beds and fantastic views!. Great breakfast from Paul. Pet friendly as well, able to take our dog who was allowed in all the pubs in the village - had to try them out to help the economy!!!! highly recommended. Minutes away from coniston lake and great walks. 10 minutes from village and about 20 minutes from Bowness. Make sure you check out the stars at night. breathtaking!!

The room we stayed was spacious with a nice outlook over the fields however it was quite cold. The shower leaked and the towels were thin. The pillows were also very flat. breakfast was good but as with most b&b's wasn't served until 08:30. As it had just changed owners there was no wifi available and we had to pay cash for our room. I felt that in view of the fact that not all services were up and running that it was overpriced. I believe that it will be refurbished in the off season so may prove more value for money then .

thank you for your review, we do value all reviews both good and bad, however i am a little surprised by your comments, i only wish you would have raised the problems with us before you left not waited to air them on here.
when you knocked enquiring about availability and i showed you the room, i explained that we had just taken over and that we were having issues with BT and that we had no wifi but that it was freely available 10mts across the road at the neighboring hotel, you were quite happy with this i did say that if you wished to look for another guest house that had wifi that was not a problem, i also explained at the same time that we were awaiting the card machine (thankfully both card machine and wifi have now arrived, hooray!!!!) and gave the option of cash or a bacs transfer when you arrived home after your stay.
As regards the room problems you encountered, you stayed for 2 nights so if you had only mentioned them after your 1st night we could have addressed them straight away, (there are 4 pillows on the bed and 2 spare in the wardrobe) the shower door is now done, the central heating on constantly, if you had only turned on the thermostatic valve, it does work (the valves were turned off on both radiators)
we are very flexible, if you required an earlier breakfast again please ask, we don't know if you don't ask, we have a lot of walkers and always try to please, i did notice that you came down around 8.45 for breakfast (our time for breakfast is 8.30-9.15) so i can't quite understand why you mention the breakfast time

we believe that £35 per person a night for a double room with ensuite jacuzzi bath and shower, with fireplace and sitting area is good value before any refurbishment with or without wifi!!!

rick the cleaner did find you phone charger, i did try to contact you on the number but it comes up unobtainable (aussie number i think) i you wish to contact me we can arrange postage for the charger

Lovely comfortable lounge for patrons. A breakfast that will set you up for the day. Welcoming owners who have several lovely dogs and welcome guests dogs too. Beautiful setting, 2 minutes walk to Coniston Water. Peaceful for a good sleep. We enjoyed our weekend there.

Room Tip: Room 4 has it's own enclosed garden.

Stayed here for four nights. Debbie and Paul had just taken over Bluebird Lodge and could not have done enough for you . We asked about different walks and Paul put us a pack together which helped no end. Rooms really clean and comfy, the view from the guest lounge and breakfast room is wonderful so relaxing. Breakfast was very nice, could not fault anything not far to walk to the village either. Thanks Debbie and Paul will def be back .

Room Tip: if you have pets they are very welcome also room four has a private garden
