“Excellent”
Reviewed 27 June 2018 for a stay in June 2018

Don’t believe the odd bad review.

The house was beautifully set out, fantastically clean and had everything you would need for a great break.

A great place to explore the south lakes.

Host was really quick to respond to e mails.

Top notch

Hi Darren. Thanks for your review which is much appreciated.

The only 2 reviews that we got that were not 5 star reviews were malicious reviews from a couple that that tried to extort money from us by saying they wanted a partial refund or they would write a bad review. I suspect they try that trick everywhere they go.

As you concluded, if there’s 16 five star reviews and 2 bad ones, it’s a sure bet the bad reviews are malicious or fake.

Glad you enjoyed yourselves and I hope to welcome you back again soon.

“Fab surprise birthday/engagement weekend!”
Reviewed 7 April 2018 for a stay in April 2018
1
person found this review helpful

I was surprised by my friends who organised a long weekend at Charcoal House. The surroundings driving to the cottage were amazing and the location was lovely. The cottage itself had my dream kitchen in it.... full of little touches like the coffee machine and the cosy snug at the side. We all had lovely bedrooms, each decorated in a slightly different way with really comfy beds. The balcony overlooking the river was so peaceful and you could see the snowy mountains in the distance. The cottage had a display of leaflets with things to do and we chose to go to Cliffhanger rooms which was an escape game only 10 minutes drive from the cottage and we all had such a great time. Coniston isn’t far to travel from the cottage and we went there on one of the days which was a lovely day out. Would recommend this cottage to anyone who wants a relaxing weekend away, I already want to go back!

“30th Birthday Celebrations”
Reviewed 3 April 2018 for a stay in March 2018

We came to charcoal cottage to celebrate my sisters 30th birthday, there were 6 of us in total (3 couples) and we stayed there over Easter weekend.

It was a beautiful and spacious cottage in the most peaceful and beautiful setting. I have never seen a cottage which such equally sized and lovely decorated bedrooms which were perfect for 6 adults... no need to fight over the “best room”!!

We held a surprise birthday celebration in the lounge and and even had a surprise engagement so it really was a weekend to remember.

Whilst we were there we had some lovely scenic walks around coniston and went on a boat trip and one evening visited the cliffhanger rooms which we would all recommend.

Charcoal cottage was the perfect place to make some memories and we would definitely hope to return very soon.

“Amazing weekend away! ”
Reviewed 2 April 2018 for a stay in March 2018

We stayed here for a friends suprise 30th birthday and it was lovely.

Had a fab time and the house is stunning. All the rooms were good size and no one felt as though they got the ‘worser’ room as there wasn’t one!

Lounge area was great and had a basket of games to play.

Kitchen was well equipped and clean.

Nice touches around the house including the leaflets on activities in the area.

Would recommend staying here and hope to visit again soon!

“Fantasic !!”
Reviewed 22 March 2018 for a stay in March 2018

We’ve had a lovely week at Charcoal House and were really sad to leave.
The location of the property was great! Only a short walk to the Coniston Water and the fells.
Charcoal House was lovely ! Clean ,warm and inviting and exceeded all our needs, great place to catch up with family and friends.
We were provided with lots of information on the area walks, places to eat and drink etc from the owner.
Can`t wait to book again!
