    We had a fabulous stay at Rowlandson cottage. The cottage had everything we needed. It was a great location, only a short walk into the centre of Coniston. Plus there's plenty of walks nearby. There was parking for the car on site too. An open fire in the lounge made the cottage very cosy, and the owners left it ready made for us to use, but the cottage was always warm so we didn't need it. Its the perfect place to get away from it all.

    Great location, and fantastic gardens which we were allowed to inspect. Cottage warms up nicely with the real fire and it's healthy to be disconnected from the modern world!
