The Room was spotless and well maintained and essentials were topped up daily.
A Television was in each room to make the evenings pass more smoothly and the Heating was on
from the afternoon until early morning, as I attended in October it was needed.
A wide choice of Breakfast from a simple bowl of Cereal to a big Fry up if required.
The owner is a happy and only to happy to help sort of person and they never imposed
on your stay at all. The location is unimportant as Coniston is quite small but it a short walk from
the Fells and even closer is Coniston Waters. My only downer was leaving and coming back
to London :-(

Room Tip: The Back rooms have a much better view.

Fantastic long weekend in Conistion with four dear College friends. Walking in Langdale,bike ride (short bit of pushing) around the lake,almost up the Old Man and re-discovered John Ruskin.

Great pub food and quiz at the Brittannia Inn,Elterwater but the stand out part of the reunion was the welcome,warmth and hospitality at Oaklands.

Judith and her family made us really welcome and the breakfasts,packed lunches and apricot flapjack were superb.

Unbelievable value for money....will be going back.

Can't fault the welcome, comfort, quietness, view, proximity to Coniston & places to eat, and the helpfulness of Judith, Zeke & their daughter-in-law & grand-daughter. Breakfast was good too. thanks.

Stayed here as part of a walking holiday in May and whilst touring the Lake District with my wife in September.

Same friendly welcome, spacious, spotless comfortable rooms and excellent breakfasts. Also has off street parking which can be at a premium in the Lake District.

Thoroughly enjoyed my stay on both occasions. Highly recommended.

Decided to walk the Cumbrian way on August bank holiday and managed to get a room at last minute due to cancellation. Beautifull room with comfortable bed , immaculately clean and fabulous views of Conniston Old Man. Unfortunately not en-suite but wonderfull modern bathroom next door and never saw anyone else using it during our stay.
We had no transport but Judith said that if we wanted to stay extra night Zeke would pick us up from Dungeon Ghyll after our walk and take us back after breakfast following morning. Nothing was an effort for this lovely couple!
2 mins walk into Conniston for food and drink & about 300 yds from Cumbrian Way.
Left with regret feeling refreshed and so well looked after.
If we do the Cumbrian way again I will be so dissappointed if we can not stay here again.

Room Tip: Room at back was not ensuite but had fabulous views and was very quiet.
