Oaklands Guesthouse
Ranked #5 of 15 Coniston B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 12 June 2013

Just a couple of minutes from downtown Coniston, the Oaklands Guest House is in a perfect location. Judith made us welcome, loaned us hiking maps, served delicious breakfasts and prepared some lunches to go on the trail. Coniston is fortunate to have her in the community as she seems involved in just about everything. We even met her grandchildren!

Room Tip: Looked right out on the grass tennis courts.

We have just had four nights at Oaklands in Coniston. Put simply, it was wonderful. The location is excellent, two minutes stroll to the village centre. Beds comfortable and super breakfasts. Judith and Zeke made splendid hosts. We will be going there again.

This B&B was a very welcome oasis. We only required the Saturday night, which was fine with the proprietors. (I gather many B&B's locally demand at least a two night stay). Well positioned in the village just a minutes stroll to the co op and post office and pubs etc.

The room had a lovely dual aspect with a beautiful view of 'The Old Man' which was topped with snow. A very convenient table and two easy chairs by the window. We sat up late, chatting over a bottle of wine and admired the view of the mountain in the moonlight. Very romantic!

The proprietors were very welcoming and couldn't have been more helpful. Breakfast was very good.

We also had packed lunches which were really good value. Lovely egg mayo sandwiches and a generous slab of homemade walnut cake- fab!

I thought this lovely B&B was a brilliant find. Highly recommended.

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.
