Swallows Nest is just five minutes' walk from Coniston Water, and with the Old man on Coniston close by, there is great walking in the area.


Swallow's Nest was very quiet and extremely comfortable. The location is just right and the view out of the bedroom window was always inviting and impressive. The spacious bathroom was much appreciated, as was the very comfortable bed and lounges. Free WiFi was excellent. Thanks a lot; we loved our stay there and would definitely come back, it was excellent value for money.
Ms Williams

An excellent location and lovely accommodation, which had everything we needed. We will definitely be going back.

The accommodation was spotless - couldn't fault a thing. Everything worked properly and we were very comfortable. Fixtures and furnishings were all good quality and the WiFi worked well too - and a good phone signal! The location is excellent for local walks and sights and there are some lovely places to eat within an easy walk.
Mrs Davies

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Swallows Nest. It was a lovely, clean, cosy cottage with everything you need. Myself and my husband would recommend this cottage for anyone wanting to visit Coniston.
Mrs Wilson

An extremely well furnished and equipped apartment. A fantastic location in the town with plenty of places to eat and drink, and lots of walks without having to drive. Can thoroughly recommend Coniston as a base for exploring the Lake District.
