Unfortunately the Willow Tree Cottage spoilt our holiday. It is in desperate need of a total revamp!! It is crying out for a deep clean, painting, repairs, new carpets, sofas, curtains and beds. What a shame it could be a beautiful cottage. 4 star it is NOT, but this was issued in February 2016. I was told that Cumbria Guide...

From start to finish this company was brilliant. They're prompt in replies and communication, give excellent instructions and information and are good value for money. We booked a weekend in Mill Cottage in Broughton Mills. The cottage itself was absolutely beautiful, but the 'extras' went above and beyond what we expected. It was not just a rental property - it...

Wainwright Cottage is situated in Vale View, Coniston, and has fantastic views looking over Conistonwater. We have been staying in Vale View every year since 1985, in a privately owned cottage, but due to plumbing issues, had to rebook with Coppermines. The cottage is rather spacious with 2 bedrooms/en suite bathrooms, and in a very peaceful area. The central heating/hot...

Lovely stay, facilities very much suited needs of a chill out few days Monday to Friday. Centrally located in Coniston within reach of all local facilities. Nice clean, cosy property, plenty of space for us and the dogs, bedrooms & bathrooms lovely and open real fire in lounge area. Loved having use of the hot-tub....this was an added bonus !...

We choose to stay in Coppermines cottages in the village when we go to Coniston every year for a weekend break. They give great access to pubs, walks and the Water.
