    We decided to book a last minute weekend away and there was therefore a limited selection of cottages available. We were really pleased that we found Rowlandson Ground Cottage, which is tucked away down a lane on the opposite side of the lake to Coniston Village. We were met on arrival by the owner, who showed us round and pointed out the local footpaths. The cottage is small but well equipped, and suited us perfectly. It takes about a 30 minute walk to get into Coniston (or 5 minutes by car). For cyclists, there is access into Grizedale forest and its a short hop over the hill to Hawkshead should you wish to head in that direction. The amazing spring weather helped, but all in all we had a superb, relaxing weekend away and would definitely return.

    We had a great time in the lakes. Cottage is ideally positioned for all the main sites. Coniston is a short walk and a lovely place - our daughter really enjoyed exploring swallows and amazons country. Village had good places to eat as well. Owners live on site and we're always welcoming if you wanted something. We look forward to returning.

    The owner who lived next door to the cottage gave the impression that he did not want people in his cottage on the couple of times he spoke to us, his wife was rather fed up with having to fix the wifi. Every morning when it was not raining he was back and forth with his gardening tractor past the front of the cottage. In fact one morning he was cutting the hedge with a petrol hedge cutter within 30cm of our window! This is the sort of thing you do when the people are out. We were out midmorning every day.
