    We had a lovely week at Rowlandson Ground Cottage. Very comfortable and cosy. Clean and tidy. Beautiful setting in fabulous grounds. Unfortunately we had lots of rain, so we didn't see the cottage in it's full glory. This isn't a complaint but we thought that the cooker and hob were in need of updating. Still managed as not much cooking done during our stay. We would definitely stay again and our hosts were lovely, very helpful and friendly.

    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.
