Best cottage we've stayed in at the Lakes; very clean and tidy. Beds were very comfortable and the little stove in the living room is excellent!

Green Croft is a beautiful little place, very comfy and quaint, located only 3 minutes' walk from the centre of the town. There are beautiful views of the mountains from every window and amazing walking trails heading up to the peak of Old Man Coniston which start only a short distance from the house. We also enjoyed having fully equipped kitchen so we could have a quiet night in, sitting in front of the fireplace. Highly enjoyed my experience here and didn't want to leave. 10/10 would recommend to anyone looking for a quiet getaway and easy access to the natural beauty of the Lake District.
