“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.

“Simply the best.”
Reviewed 27 June 2014 for a stay in June 2014

Miners cottage more than lived up to expectations,photographs really do not do it justice.
Very clean, tasteful decor ... with everything needed for a comfortable, homely stay. The views from the living room window are to die for and the neighbours are very friendly.
I strongly recommend getting up very early in the morning to catch daylight breaking .....breathtaking views.
I would definitely recommend this to anyone wanting to visit Coniston.

“Wonderful cottage in a perfect location.”

We have just returned from a flawless week staying in Miners Cottage. It was everything we could have asked for! Cosy, clean, well equipped and in a great location.

When we arrived, everything was spotless. The kitchen was well equipped, and the added extras such as the docking station and washing machine were very useful. The wifi was great, especially for planning our day and keeping in touch with home. Nice to have a good TV and DVD player, we enjoyed relaxing watching Breaking Bad in front of the roaring log fire! We bought logs from the neighbour down the street. Reasonable and lasted all week.

The parking and street were tight, but we have a Land Rover and managed fine! The designated parking space easily fitted two cars. The front garden was lovely. Very well kept and nice to have a big table and chairs. Wonderful views too, which were lovely to wake up to. The back garden/area was good too, enough space for the dog to go out in the morning. Nice to see the birds feeding, and also enough room for a disposable BBQ!

The cottage is in a great location. Just a ten minute walk into the centre of Coniston town / the Coniston Lake & Bluebird Cafe and lots of lovely walks! Also a short drive to Hawkshead/Grizedale etc. BP with Spar off licence & chip shop nearby which are very handy.

Would absolutely recommend this cottage. Really perfect! So pleased with it and had a great week, thanks :)

“A Dream cottage in a stunning Location”

We pulled up outside Miners Cottage on a dark wet Friday evening and upon opening the door the kids were whooping with delight and excitement. We instantly felt at home in this cottage and the toughest part of the trip was saying goodbye to the place!
The cottage has everything you need for a relaxing holiday and the owners have done a wonderful job in restoring it.
The views from the bedroom windows are awesome and with the added advantage of a comfy window seat in each one this soon became the place to sit and read a book or simply admire the view.
We got our wood supply from No 30 and the log fire was a hit with all of us especially the dog!
So much thought has gone into making sure the cottage has everything you need including local history books, games & an ipod docking station/radio. We had arranged for our shopping to be delivered on the Saturday and made good use of the slow cooker which was a blessing to come back to after a full day walking.
This was our first visit to Coniston & Miners Cottage and it wont be our last.
The Black Bull became our favourite drinking hole as after a full days walking we found the staff & locals to be incredibly welcoming and the real ales were epic!
As previously mentioned yes the cottage is high up but as long as you are reasonably fit the views you get make the hill more than worthwhile and the kids never found it a problem.
Wonderful stay in an outstanding home from home. Wish we could go back tomorrow.
