  • "Fabulous property, one of the best we’ve ever stayed in."

    Location is perfect for accessing from the south, and for exploring the surrounding area. (And being able to access Coniston Old Man directly from the house was the icing on the cake, such a beautiful walk.) Plenty of parking space. Downstairs rooms are good size, with huge comfortable sofas, and well equipped modern kitchen. Plenty of space for boots and for hanging coats. Bedrooms all very comfortable and spacious. Would definitely stay here again if we return to the Coniston area.

  • "I don't really want to leave a review as then others will know what a lovely place Ash Gill Cottage is."

    The owners have put a lot of thought into what makes an excellent self-catering cottage. It's very well equipped, very comfortable, and extremely homely. Oh, and it was immaculate. 2 little things would be nice, the option to turn one if the twins into a double and a slow cooker to have something ready and warm to come home to after walking in the area. We didn't rate the pub, food was ok, and we thought overpriced and the service was slow but Coniston and Ulverston are only a short drive away for supplies. The location of the cottage is ideal for walks. We are already looking at returning next year.

  • "Lovely cottage and lovely location."

    Had everything we needed. Very clean and comfortable. My only suggestion was some basics in the cupboard such as salt pepper oil sugar. As I wouldn't expect to bring those items.

  • "Loved the cottage."

    Clean, spacious, tasteful and well equipped. Excellent location for exploring the southern lakes. Pub nearby was good for a decent meal or a pre dinner drink. Would recommend.

Inside, the designated chef will be pleased to find a fully-equipped kitchen, where tasty home-cooked meals can be whipped up to be savoured around the dining table or by the warmth of a centrepiece woodburning stove in the plush, living/dining room where you and the family can enjoy a film or two on the stylish Smart TV.

In the warmer months, take your meals outside to enjoy alfresco in the furnished rear garden, a great spot for a soothing morning coffee whilst soaking in your tranquil surroundings.

In the evenings, treat yourself to an indulgent bath before retiring to one of three inviting bedrooms, including a king with accompanying en-suite shower - an idyllic spot to wash away the day as you prepare for a new one.
