Coniston Lodge on April 15, 2024

We had a lovely week staying in the Tarn Hows apartment. Such a friendly welcome and the apartment was so comfortable, spotlessly clean and extremely well equipped. Centrally located in Coniston with walks from the door and close to shops and pubs. We have been coming to Coniston for many years and this is definitely the best accommodation we have stayed in – 10 out of 10.
Claire, Jenny and Richard on November 26, 2023

My girlfriend and I stayed recently stayed in the Yewdale Crag apartment. We could not fault it. The apartment was very homely. The twin room had a wonderful Beatrix Potter theme. The apartment met all our needs and more. Plenty of room and well kitted it. The laundry room was there to use if necessary. We cannot fault Mr and Mrs Robinson., very welcoming people. The "welcome pack" of fresh flowers and freshly made cake was a lovely touch. Compliments to Mrs Robinson for making a lovely cake. This was our first visit to the Lodge and we hope to be back. I have already had discussions with Mr Robinson about coming back in 2024. The apartment was near the village centre which was handy. Coniston is a great base for exploring that part of Cumbria.
ANDREW HAWKINS on July 2, 2023

We had a lovely stay at Tarn Hows apartment, so much so we are already looking to book your other apartment as I write this. Thankyou Anthony and Elizabeth for your hospitality and the fabulous sponge cake.

Just returned home from a truly relaxing week at Yewdale Crag Apartment. We felt welcome as soon as we walked through the door. The apartment is spacious, comfortable and well-equipped and the off-street parking is a welcome bonus. We were delighted with the home-made sponge cake which was lovely to come back to after our days out walking the Coniston Fells. Already, we are looking forward to a return visit next Easter!

Coniston Lodge on April 30, 2023

Just returned from a wonderful seven night break. We stayed in the Yewdale Crags apartment. Spotlessly clean and everything you would require from a self catering apartment. Really warm and cosy rooms, fantastic location and great hosts. We’ll definitely return. Thanks very much.
Paul Burnett on March 25, 2023

Coniston Lodge on March 28, 2023

What a beautiful cottage, we stayed in Tarn How's in Coniston for 7 days over the new year 2022 and what a relaxing stay it was, the cottage was warm, cosy, clean to the very highest standard. Elizabeth and Tony left fabulous cake and scones to leave for our return as the weather was rain, rain and more rain, but it did not spoil our holiday, we were able to dry out our clothes and boots which was a god send as we got wet 6 days out of 7. The Location is perfect for Coniston to eat out if required, but the facilities at the cottage are 1st Class everything is there to cook in the well equipped kitchen, even a dishwasher. The Garden is full of wonderful birds even in winter. We look forward to going back this year and see the summer garden. It was wonderful to see Coniston in the winter without the summer tourists, and managed to get to 2 Park Runs and people were very friendly. Thank you for a lovely stay
GILLIAN HASTINGS on January 14, 2023

Hello Gillian, Thank you so much for your very kind remarks. It is always good to know that we are getting things right in the apartments, even if we can’t control the weather! We are looking forward to welcoming you back to Coniston Lodge. Our kindest regards and appreciation Anthony & Elizabeth.
Coniston Lodge on January 19, 2023

We stayed in the Tarn How’s apartment and this was so well equipped with everything and more for the week. The hosts were excellent nothing was too much trouble. The location is perfect. We would stay here again and recommend to our friends. Thank you for a great week.

Coniston Lodge on August 15, 2022

Thank you for a wonderful week in Yewdale Crags apartment, every bit as homely and well presented as Tarn Hows apartment, in which we have stayed twice in the past, and Mrs Robinsons cakes are legendary Hoping you will have us back again in the not too distant future Until then, Thank you again.
Mark and Gina on July 27, 2022

Hello Mark & Gina, Thank you for your very positive feedback. Elizabeth and I are so pleased you enjoyed your stay with us once again. You will of course always be welcome back, and one of Elizabeth's cakes will be waiting for you.
Coniston Lodge on July 27, 2022

It was our first time for visiting The Lake District and Tarn Hows, Coniston Lodge was the perfect introduction to Coniston. The apartment was cosy especially after returning from a walk. It was also pleasant to be greeted by Elizabeth telling us she had made a cake for our arrival. The weather also added to our enjoyment of Coniston and surrounding area. We also enjoyed being able to tap into local knowledge which Elizabeth and Anthony were happy to supply. We wanted a relaxing holiday and we got it because everything was so agreeable. We hope to return and would certainly recommend Coniston Lodge because it is the main element that makes your holiday so enjoyable. Even if it rained you still have a welcoming place to return to. Our thanks again to Elizabeth and Anthony for making our stay so memorable. October 2019
Jan & Diana Nechanicky on November 2, 2019

Hello Jan & Diana, We are so pleased you enjoyed your stay with us at Coniston Lodge. Thank you for all your kind comments about us and our apartments. As you say, it is an ideal location to explore the local area and the rest of the Lake District. Thank you once again for your kindness. We will certainly look forward to perhaps welcoming you back to Coniston Lodge once again in the future. Kindest regards, Elizabeth & Anthony

Dean on November 1, 2019

We enjoyed a week at Easter staying in Yewdale Crags. The apartments are very comfortable with all you need for your holiday and Tony and Elizabeth are always there with help and advice should you need it. The location is quiet, yet only a few minutes walk from the village centre with its shops and five pubs selling good food and beer. Yewdale Crags provided a perfect base from which to go walking - we have never used the car so little in the Lakes. Having holidayed in the Lake District many times, it was the first time we had stayed in Coniston - with all it had to offer, it won't be the last and Coniston Lodge apartments make an ideal base.
Malcolm & Heather on July 21, 2018

Hello Malcolm & Heather, Thank you for your support. Elizabeth & I are so pleased you all enjoyed your stay at Coniston Lodge in our 'Yewdale Crag' apartment. As you say Coniston is an ideal Lakeland village to stay, with lots of facilities all within easy reach of Coniston Lodge. Our village is perfect for walkers and ramblers, as you say. Once again our thanks to you for your comments which will be appreciated by future guests. We very much look forward to welcoming you back to Coniston Lodge once again. Anthony & Elizabeth.
Coniston Lodge on July 21, 2018

We stayed in Tarn Hows in July 2017. We found it to be very comfortable, spacious and clean with everything you could need for such a stay. It is in a quiet location, yet only a 2 minute walk to the centre where there is a good variety of 'local' shops and pubs. There is off road parking. Excellent views all round the property. If you are a bird lover, there are many birds to be seen in the garden from the living room which is situated on the first floor. The owners were very friendly and helpful and provided us with a welcoming cake which was very good indeed! We would happily stay there again. Coniston is a very lovely place indeed.
Roger Allpress on August 12, 2017

Hello Roger & Anita, Thank you once again for your kind support, it is very much appreciated. Elizabeth and I are so pleased you enjoyed your stay with us at Coniston Lodge. We look forward to welcoming you back again sometime in the future.
Coniston Lodge on August 12, 2017

We stayed in the Tarn Hows apartment for the first week in July. The accommodation is extremely spacious and equipped with just about everything you could possibly need. With superb views over the garden and distant landscape, it was even nice just sitting and watching the vast variety of birds in the garden on a not so dry day ! The location is idyllic - the lake being about 15 minutes away on foot with a vast array of other walks nearby. The welcoming tray with a choice of hot drinks and a delicious Victoria Sponge and ginger shortbread were most appreciated. Anthony and Elisabeth are very pleasant - accommodating without being overpowering - very nice people. We would definitely consider staying again.
Brian and Davina on July 17, 2016

We stayed at Coniston Lodge for the second year running in July 2014 with friends. The apartments are situated near to the village centre, homely and well equipped. Elizabeth's homemade cake was scrumptious as ever and was enjoyed with beautiful views from the living room. Tony was always willing to give advice on the local area and nothing was too much trouble. We had a great holiday and look forward to our next visit next year.
alan and tracey heaps on August 26, 2014

Thank you both for your kind words. Elizabeth and I both look forward to welcoming you all back to Coniston Lodge soon. Kindest regards, Anthony.
Coniston Lodge on August 26, 2014

We have been coming to Coniston and the Lakes at Easter for many years and have now stayed in Tarn Hows for 2 years running. The apartments are very spacious and well equipped in a perfect location in the village centre, with good walks straight from the door. As ever, Tarn Hows was spotless and very comfortable for our usual visit this Easter with the added bonus of homemade cake and milk on arrival, setting us up nicely for a very relaxing holiday. The owners, Mr & Mrs Robinson, are very welcoming and on hand , if needed. Thank you for another great holiday. We have already booked for next year.
Adrian Smith on May 14, 2014

We have stayed in both apartments for 3 weeks in 2012 & 2013 and have booked again for 3 weeks this year. Mr & Mrs Robinson are friendly and go out of their way to make your holiday an enjoyable one without being obtrusive. The apartments are spacious, beautifully furnished warm and comfortable with every facility for your needs. They are spotlessly clean and carefully maintained. The views are just lovely. There is a tray for tea or coffee and a beautiful sponge on arrival, which is very welcome after a long journey. I can also recommend preserves and Christmas puddings from the Coniston Larder. Thank you for making our holidays so enjoyable. See you in September!
