Reviewed 4 June 2018 for a stay in May 2018

We booked this cottage after reading the very good reviews and we were not disappointed. The cottage was excellent it had everything we needed for an enjoyable stay and it was very clean. The views were excellent out of all the cottages we have stayed in in the Lake District this has the most impressive views.we will definitely be returning to this lovely cottage It was only a 7 min walk to The Black Bull pub which served their one local beer brewed on site we ate there several times and were not disappointed with any of the meals.

“Beautiful cottage with stunning views”
Reviewed 30 March 2018 for a stay in March 2018

We stayed for a week at the beginning of March during the heavy snowfall. It is a stunning cottage with every amenity you might need and the views are breathtaking. Mandy was such help and so accommodating! The local pubs (The Ship) and restaurants were great and we didn’t really need to venture out of Coniston to eat! The location is perfect for hiking and we will definitely visit again! Thanks for an amazing stay :)

“Magical Lakeside Retreat”
Reviewed 8 November 2017 for a stay in November 2017

My husband and I snatched a much needed week away and have spent it at Miner’s Cottage which looks down over Coniston Waters. The cottage is very comfortable and has everything needed. It is well appointed and tastefully furnished and we have enjoyed our short stay here immensely. We’d love to be able to spend more time enjoying the walks and many drives you can do, to take in and enjoy all the stunning scenery that is abound in this beautiful part of the world. Thanks to Mandy for great communications making our stay here so easy and relaxing. I would recommend Miner’s Cottage to any couple or small family.

“beautiful views, perfect location & stylish accommodation. Amazing!”
Reviewed 1 January 2017 for a stay in December 2016

The house was beautiful, very tastefully restored retaining the character you would expect from a period property. It was spotlessly clean and the views from the front windows were outstanding.
I can't recommend this little cottage enough, the rooms were all good sizes and the owners have thought about everything that visitors might need to know from places to eat & drink to exploring the amazing landscape.
We will be booking miners cottage again very soon for our return visit.

“Lovely cottage with amazing views”
Reviewed 6 April 2016 for a stay in March 2016

Had a lovely weeks stay at Miners cottage. It was clean and warm and had everything we needed. The views of Coniston and the lake were amazing and we spent lots of time looking from the window seats in the bedroom and living room. The children loved the binoculars and games. We had good walks up Old Man and in Grizedale forest. We canoed on Lake Coniston which was lovely and also had a trip on the steam gondola. The fish and chip shop in the village was good. The wood burning stove in the cottage was great and made it very cosy. We will be back.

“Excellent base for a walking holiday”
Reviewed 23 March 2015 for a stay in March 2015

Miner's Cottage is very well equipped, comfortable and ideally located for a walking holiday around the Coniston area. The views from the cottage are stunning and look straight across to Coniston Water and the fells beyond.

Although parking is a little difficult it is quite unusual to have parking for 2 cars although you will need to juggle the loading times within the narrow single-track road.

Coniston itself is only a 3 minute walk away and is blessed with good foodie pubs.

“We loved it so much we have stayed twice.”
Reviewed 27 August 2014 for a stay in July 2013

This a wonderful cottage to stay in located in a beautiful part of the lakes. The cottage had been renovated by the current owners and the first time we stayed we were lucky enough to be the first visitors! We loved it so much we returned the following winter.

The cottage has everything you need for a family of four (four adults on both these occasions) to stay comfortably. From a washer/dryer to a nice log fire to everything you need in the kitchen. The bedrooms are of a good size and a modern bathroom with a nice bath to soak tired legs. The views over Coniston are fantastic and the cottage is only a few minutes walk from the local pubs and village centre.

We have only not returned for a third time due to the very steep hill that is needed to be walked to access the cottage on foot due to some family health issues. This would not be a problem for reasonably fit & healthy people (dare I say ‘normal’ standard health) but needs to be a consideration for certain people. Would not recommend for the infirm, wheelchair bound or anyone who would struggle to walk up 5 or 6 flights of stairs and hope to not use a car to get to/from the cottage. For everyone else its just a beautiful get away.
