  • "Some time ago there must have been some money spent on Bluebird Loft."

    However ongoing maintenance seems to have been let go. Several light bulbs were out, could not see out of kitchen windows (dirty), grouting along tap end of shower was crumbling, the front door to flat would not stay shut without being locked. The internal door handles creaked and made noise, they would also not stay shut and kept opening... Lamp in bathroom above sink is rusty. When anyone sat on toilet the floorboards creak (warped floorboards or broken joists ?) Fridge door storage broken (seriously reduces what can be stored ! Wonderful location. Would I stay in Coniston again, YES Would I stay In Bluebird Loft again, NO

    Most inconvenient limits where you can store other items.

    Facilities were all we would have wished for. Quiet location but a short walk to pubs and restaurants. Would definitely stay there again.

  • "We did list things that would have been handy for anyone staying, in their visitor's book ie table mats for hot plates, a pint of milk and a couple of tea bags left for anyone after a long drive, perhaps complimentary shower gel (as that's what hotels have available)."

    Other than these small items, Bluebird Loft is ideal for a couple for a short break and is perfectly placed within the village.

  • "We had a lovely week, with the weather being kind to us."

    Bluebird Loft is a nice apartment, well situated for a quiet break in the Lakes or for travelling out to other locations. The only minor thing I noted was the wobbly glass table...may be needs changing or making more stable. Thank you, we would book again.

  • "Comfortable apartment, perfect for 2."

    Super views from kitchen windows. Night sky was amazing. Milky Way so clear. Great having pizza place so close, it sells lovely bakery products and coffee through the day and pizza early evening. Steam bistro even closer open at weekends. Super food. Really enjoyed sitting out front enjoying a glass of wine or cup of tea after a day on the fells. Ate and enjoyed a pint or 2 of real ale at several pubs in Coniston. The only glitch was an unwelcome, faint, stale cooking smell when we arrived. Rectified by opening windows and leaving them open overnight. Maybe an air freshener or new filters on cooker. Didn’t spoil our stay at all. Highly recommend.

    Hi, Air freshener, replaced. Thank you for your lovely comments, much appreciated :) Property Owner

  • "The apartment was as described, if anything a little nicer."

    Though the apartment is for 2, it would be nice to have a bit more by way of crockery and glasses, so you don’t have to wash up so much.

    Hi, More crockery and glasses have been supplied. Glad you enjoyed your stay. :) Property Owner

  • "Bluebird Loft is a lovely comfortable little apartment in the centre of Coniston."

    The shops, cafes and pubs are nearby and there are amazing walks from the door. The village was nice and quiet at night so there was no disturbance & I slept really well. Incredibly comfy bed, lovely deep bath, tons of hot water and very effective central heating so, despite ridiculously cold weather for May, I was very snug indeed. The washing/drying machine was really useful and the kitchen had everything I needed. All the furniture etc was of good quality and the flat was spotlessly clean. WiFi was a bit iffy at times but no real issues. My only criticisms are that the electric heater would not work, I didn't need it for warmth but it would have been cosy to have the log effect on in the evenings...and the bulbs in living room wall lights were gone, either that or something was wrong with the wiring. All in all it was fabulous, I really enjoyed mý stay.

    Please note that there is a hairdryer, although not mentioned in inventory, so I unnecessarily brought one with me! Convenient location with bistro next door, 3 pubs and other eating places. Coniston is smallish village, but perfectly formed and perfect for location.

    Very clean and nicely located for the village. Comfortable bed and all essential amenities. Will be pleased to stay there again. Sykes emails and instructions were clear and the app was useful. The only issues were that we couldn't figure out how to use the oven/grill or the washing machine and the instructions were not there or didn't help. The CO alarm went off because of low batteries but that's understandable and something that happened by chance.

    We didn't expect it but the only thing lacking was a little outside space like a balcony, that's the only thing that would prevent us rebooking this particular property but you really couldn't fault it in any other way.

    I arrived on the Friday morning, collected the keys and went upstairs, my first impression after opening the day was, wow this is lovely, the flat was very clean and tidy and had absolutely everything i needed, one nice touch was, even though it sleeps only two, it had enough plates etc for a couple of guests, having a washer drier was useful as being in the Lake District, the weather is unpredictable,its situated close to every thing, food shops, pubs etc,very quiet and peaceful even being on the road side, only thing I would suggest would be maybe update to a blueray player, but it wasn't much of a problem, I have recommended it to family members and will do to friends, i will definitely be back in the future, lots of good walking right on the doorstep, hardly using my car
