Just a note to say we had a brilliant weekend your Holmthwaite was perfect for us. We had an age range from 5 months to 89 year and the layout of the house and facilities were ideal. Thanks for taking such a late booking it was well appreciated. Sandy also did a good job of the meet and greet!

I booked this holiday let for our village book club. There were a few of us but we slotted in nicely due to the size of the place. We loved the local museums and read and discussed the poems of John Ruskin. Loved the views from the rooms and the friendly Coniston folk. The pub grub was excellent, especially the Cumberland sausage. We hope to book next year.

We recommend this holiday home if you have a large party. We stayed with our walking group friends, as we hadn't tackled The Coniston Old Man, which we thoroughly enjoyed. A perfect base, practical and pretty.
