We just wanted to say thanks for providing a lovely place to stay. It's such a brilliant location and felt very homely. We're desperate to come back to Coniston as the weather scuppered some of our plans so we'll definitely consider staying at the Coppermines Valley again!

I can't praise this property enough! The pictures just don't do it justice. And I'd like to say a huge thank you to the owner of the property for showing us such hospitality, showing us around the grounds, telling us the history of the mines and even turning the water wheel on for us, thank you for making our stay so amazing! We will definitely be returning!

Our stay was amazing, it was a fantastic first taste of the Lake District. The cottage had everything we could need. Beds were really comfy and it was spotless.
