‘My husband, our eighteen month old Labrador and myself have just had a great 4 night stay at Badgers Cottage near Coniston. The cottage is superb, light contemporary and extremely well equipped. Everything you need is provided, gorgeous bed linen, Soak & Sleep bath sheets, dishwasher and washing machine tablets, coffee, tea, sugar, milk. The crockery and cutlery are immaculate. Cooking utensils are all provided, if you choose to cook. The lady who owns Badgers Cottage, Gillian is gracious and friendly. The booking process was simple and secure. We are originally from the area and fully enjoyed returning. Coniston is peaceful and there are plenty of safe walks for your dog, a great place for a swim ten minutes walk away at Monk Coniston.  All in all a really fab place to stay. Hopefully the next time we return our Labbie will be a little less nervous and not bark at the lovely Gillian. Bertie sends his apologies.’ (Mrs G – May 2018 Trip Advisor) ‘Amazing spot to stay with stunning views, new and beautiful accommodation. A great base for exploring the local area with easy access to the lake, Coniston Village, Grizedale forest, Hilltop Farm, the Old Man of Coniston, Hawkshead, and Tarn Hows to name a few.’ (Mr S – May 2018 Google Reviews) ‘Perfect location, excellent views.  Clean, tidy and well decorated throughout.’ Rated excellent.  (Mrs A – April 2018 Coppermines & Lakes Cottages)

‘This cottage is truly amazing – it is furnished to a really high standard and has everything you need. The kitchen is well equipped and the touches like the tea, ground coffee, sugar and chocolates were welcome…even the pint of milk in the fridge… you could not want for anything more. The kitchen has a dishwasher with a supply of dish washer tablets also provided. The lounge is decorated well and was really comfortable and the views are just breath taking – it was so relaxing just sitting with a glass of wine just looking at the Old Man of Coniston and the lake. The bedroom is lovely and yes the bed was really comfortable… even a hair dryer is supplied along with an iron and ironing board. The bathroom is really clean with a great shower , and the washer/dryer is well placed in a corner of the bathroom… and even washing tablets were provided.. This cottage is truly amazing – the owners could not be more accommodating and this was a truly 5 star experience… we would not hesitate to go back again and in fact have already recommended the cottage to another two people already… Book the Badgers Cottage- you certainly will not be disappointed….and we cant wait to go back.’  (Mrs P April 2018 Trip Advisor)
