  • "We absolutely loved our stay at The Rooftops!"

    The apartment is comfortable, well equipped, has beautiful views and a really great energy l, we didn't want to leave!! It is just an absolutely wonderful place. The only issue we had is on the Saturday night, the evening we ate at the property and stayed in to watch a film the electricity kept tripping out and all of the sockets would go off. It seemed to rectify itself after an hour or so, but it might be worth looking into. We will definitely be back next year!!

    Thank you for the great feedback. We are so pleased you enjoyed your stay. There was a power cut in the village on Saturday so I presume the problem was to do with that but we will get the circuit checked just in case. Property Owner

  • "Rooftops is an excellent property which is centrally located with wonderful views over Coniston and the surrounding hills."

    It is extremely spacious and the kitchen is very well equipped other than perhaps a crash helmet for the roof beam! The water pressure is very good which is great for both the separate shower or lovely stand alone bath where you can relax and recuperate from any strenuous walks undertaken. I would have no hesitation in returning or recommending to others. Thank you.

  • "Wonderful apartment in a fabulous location we had a very enjoyable visit only ..."

    Wonderful apartment in a fabulous location we had a very enjoyable visit only negatives were lack of power points in second bedroom and the stairs which after a day in the hills made for an extra challenge

    There is a spare plug socket in the second bedroom and plenty of power points throughout the apartment. Just think about the stairs helping burn off those calories. Extra piece of cake allowed maybe ?? Without the stairs you wouldn’t benefit from possibly the best views from any accommodation in Coniston village Property Owner

  • "Only minor problem was that the cutlery drawer in the kitchen wasn't aligned properly, and catches on the worktop."

    so much so that the plastic/melamine covering on the front of the drawer has started to crack. I have photos if required. A couple of minor improvements would be : 1) a few more knives and forks. I think there are only 6 knives for example. 2) a sink strainer would help stop food going down the sink

    Thank you for letting us know about the problem with the drawer front. This has now been replaced and a sink strainer provided. Property Owner

    Netflix was a very welcoming addition. It was great to have such an informative book advising how to use all appliances and a hairdryer in both bedrooms. I would love to stay here again, but unfortunately for me and my 13 year old dog the stairs were too much. I knew when I booked there were stairs, but glad I got to experience this lovely property and it’s views. I would definitely recommend this property.

    Only downside was that the key for the front door to the building didn’t work very well which meant we often struggled to gain access.

    Everything inside had such an attention to detail and a quality, the owners have done a fantastic job of making the place feel fresh, comfortable and relaxing. We had more than enough space with 2 and a dog, plus the views ans the bathtub were a big hit (especially after a morning up Old Man!). The parking spot was an added bonus as I was initially hesitant of having to find parking in busy coniston. The stairs didnt bother us, as worth it for the views and proximity to pubs and food! Thanks for a fab break, would highly recommend this property!

  • "Absolutely great, comfortable, great kitchen, decor spot on, in a great position."

    Only reason I didn't give comfort full marks was that we were there during the hottest week of the year and being at the top of the building it was very warm. Having all the windows open helped a little bit but then the noise of farm traffic or people late at night could disturb you when trying to sleep. A fan for each bedroom would have helped lots. Totally unusual weather and it wouldn't stop me booking again but fans would have been good.

    We phoned to enquire if there was parking available, which there isn't. At this time of year it was easy to park on the street but it might be helpful to make this information clear on the property description. The Bluebird cafe/restaurant at the end of Lakeside road is a very lovely place to retreat and there are plenty of good places to eat in Coniston. The flat and the wider setting are lovely.
