Tent Lodge Guest Reviews


We stayed at Tent Lodge Coniston on a wet and wild weekend in Janurary with 10 of our friends to celebrate my wife's birthday, but being in such a beautiful house took us away from the terrible weather outside. Richard the owner, showed us round the property and explained everything to us. This was a very nice personal touch which you dont get in many places. He had lit the fire in the main room so it was already very homely on our arrival, and told us where we could get more logs if we ran out of the ones we had prepaid for. It is a beautiful house with lots of caracter and history, very easy to relax in such beautiful surroundings.
We braved the short walk down to the jetty where the views are spectacular. Im sure on a nicer day it would be a lovely place to avail of the picnic table down there for lunch. 
It is close enough to the village of Coniston should you want to walk in for supplies, or a pint (which we did) but you feel like your a million miles away from everywhere when in Tent Lodge. Your website was useful and we booked My Personal Spa and Lucy's Kitchen from it. We would highly reccommend both of thier services.
Hopefully we will be able to return one day soon.

We had such a lovely weekend that like others before us we can't wait to go back. The house and views are stunning. We celebrated our son's 21st birthday and the dining room was the perfect setting. Waking up to the view of the Old Man reflected in the lake was a favourite moment from the weekend. The house had everything we needed and between 13 of us we certainly made good use of two dishwashers and two fridges. It was great to to be welcomed by Richard and to be able to ask questions.

The house was excellent, in a very convenient location ( we parked the cars when we arrived and did not use them at all during our stay). The views from the house were outstanding even when cloudy !! There were 8 of us and we all felt very comfortable in the house. The lounge was a lovely room to spend time in with friends and the dining room felt very special. The kitchen was very well equipped - in fact the best I have ever had in any self catering accommodation. The bedrooms were all very comfortable,  beds very comfy and the bathrooms were all sparkling and well equipped. The house was very clean and welcoming with a fire lit and lights on our arrival. Richard was very helpful and welcoming. I would recommend this house especially to celebrate an occasion or birthday as it made us all fell very special and hopefully will revisit it ourselves. 
Many thanks

Fabulous house in a fabulous setting.  
Facilities were second to none. Nothing was missing. The extensive grounds fronting lake Coniston give ample opportunities for recreation. We flew kites for the kids, picnicked on the tables at lakeside, moored a motor boat up at the jetty.
Great traditional family holiday activities. It's position is very private whilst being central to many attractions at the same time.

We had an amazing stay at Tent Lodge.

We stayed in both Tent Lodge and Grizedale cottage – a party of 18 people! Really enjoyed a long weekend celebrating a 21st birthday. The surrounding countryside and views were breath taking and made it all the more memorable. Fantastic house both inside and out, great for playing hide and seek in the dark! Thank you for the hospitality. We would love to come and stay again!

Kathy’s 60th surprise birthday celebration. What a fabulous place to spend a family break. We had a great time on the beach playing in the water a around the campfire (once it had got going!) Lucy’s inside out catering made a super meal and picnic. The motorboat trip was memorable and the lovely walks made it a very special occasion.

Ann – Jan 2015

Dear Richard and Wendy, Thank you so much for making our Wedding celebration so special! Tent Lodge is an amazing house in a perfect location. Everything about the house is special from the decor to the size of the rooms and the important finishing touches! In addition you went out of your way to make it even more special with champagne, chocolates and wine to greet us. As if that wasn't enough when we got back from checking arrangements for the wedding we found a delivery of logs and coal waiting for us! Our guests were equally impressed with Tent Lodge as they were with their own cottages, Tinkler Beck Cottage, Tent Lodge Cottage and Wetherlam. Thanks once again for allowing us to enjoy your superb estate!
Best Regards, Dave and Carmen Sparks

We stayed here over New Year as a party of twelve. What a beautiful house, in the most fabulous location. Spotlessly clean, beautifully arranged and maintained, the owners of Tent Lodge have really set out to create an atmosphere for people to relax and enjoy both the house and the grounds and surrounding area. Every detail has been thought out. We loved it here and will be back soon.

Dear John,
Many thanks for a fantastic stay at Tent Lodge last weekend - please do pass on our thanks to the owner.  He asked us to send you some feedback, given that it is a newly let property:  We loved the house and it was a perfect setting for our girlie get together. The house was beautifully equipped with everything that we could need - lovely comfy beds and luxurious showers.  The house is in a stunning position and the views out over Coniston Water were spectacular.  Richard, the owner, was really friendly and helpful - even helping us to manage our exit in the snow!
