My boyfriend and I spent the Easter break at the Orchard Cottage in Coniston. After a long week of work, we really needed a good break!
The Orchard Cottage is one of the best B&B we have ever been! The room are impeccable, and the dining room (where you have breakfast) has a large, bright window with a view of the Old Man of Coniston! I think that breakfast was one of the moments we enjoyed the most during the day: food is freshly prepared by Jean and David every morning and you can choose among a very good selection of things.
The owners, Jean and David, are very friendly and welcoming! They also showed us places to see and things to do in Coniston, which helped us a lot since we didn't have the time to look things up before getting there!
We really enjoyed our stay in Coniston: it gave us the opportunity to relax, do outdoor activities, taste excellent food, and enjoy nature without having thousands of tourists around!
