I stayed at Oaklands Guest house as a stop while I hiked the Cumbria Way. I booked it as they had a single room that was very reasonably priced, but when I arrived was pleasantly surprised to find I had been upgraded to an ensuite room as I was the only guest (it was a cold, wet weekend in February)....

Judith and Zeke gave us an amazing 3 night stay. The price, breakfast, rooms and service were excellent. The rooms were kept clean and tidy. Judith and Zeke made sure we were comfortable and had everything we needed. The house is amazing with parking and only a short walk into Coniston village. We couldn't have asked for better hosts.

I've been stopping at Oaklands since 2004 - daywalking in the Spring & Autumn and backpacking through in May. Oaklands is simply one of the best B&Bs that I've experienced in nearly 40 yrs of visiting the Lakr District and 20 years of backpacking in the Dales & N Pennines. It is clean, unfussed, the food is good and so...

My husband and I recently walked the Cumbria Way. Oaklands Guest House was our second stop on route. The room was was lovely, the breakfast excellent, and the packed lunch for the following day the best on our entire walk, complete with sandwiches, snacks, and homemade cake.

Just returned from 6 great nights in this comfortable and friendly guest house. We had fabulous views of The Old Man from our bedroom. The location is excellent, less than 5 minutes walk to anywhere in Coniston village. We will certainly be back.

We arrived here at the end of our first day on the Cumbria Way. We were warmly welcomed and shown to our room which must be blessed with one of the best views in the Lake District. The room was immaculately clean and extremely comfortable. Breakfast was generous, with fresh fruit and cereal options. Close to the centre of Coniston.
