Self-Catering Reviews

Mr Macfarlane
October 2020
There’s no parking, so a warning to be prepared to pay £3 for 2 hrs at the car park across the road, or some other helpful advice, would be good.. The last email we got, a week before arriving, said the host would be ‘available to greet you from 17:00’ so we expected to get the keys from a person. The number on the email was a call centre and completely unhelpful and it took much exhausted searching on the doorstep through email archives (no internet till we got inside!) and the fortunate assistance of some other chance-met guests to figure out the ‘keysafe’ system and get it to work. We’d have given up on it if we weren’t stranded and desperate by now. Very sticky and awkward to open, needed 3 hands! Not a bad apartment though pricey, maybe that’s just the Lake District for you. Nice bathroom, good location, decent hot water system. Kitchen was adequate EXCEPT oven didn’t work (wasted a whole frozen meal) which is poor for a not-cheap self-catering apartment. The ‘appliance book’ didn’t have an oven page. Stove top worked. Cafetière spout was broken, which we didn’t notice till after we made/wasted the coffee. The bedroom was nice (good view out the window) though the bed was uncomfortably soft for our taste. We had to strip the bed and bag up all the towels and linens (supposedly due to covid !?), as well as put all the crockery/cutlery/pans in the dishwasher before leaving, which was ok (if not quite expected at the price) except you also have to be gone by 9am! We didn’t try the TV so can’t comment. Wi-fi was good.

I especially appreciated how warm and cosy the place is - in fact, even cosier than it appeared in the photographs..

Your information states that Donald Campbell's restored Bluebird car is in the Ruskin Museum in Coniston and it isn't.. We would however recommend Swallows Nest in Coniston which is a modern comfortable apartment close to all the amenities.

Location and the cosy, compact nature of the accommodation.. The Bistro 'Steam next door was outstanding as were the pubs next in the village for hospitality, beet and the quality of food. There's excellent access to Coniston Waters and lots of interesting walks. We're looking forward to returning soon, hopefully during Easter.

Apartment was in the perfect location, clean and very well presented.. Coniston itself is lovely. Climb the old man, it’s hard but you will be very pleased with yourself. The artisan bakery for pizza, fantastic. Little cafe next to apartment perfect for breakfast if you can’t be bothered to cook your own. We would recommend Swallows nest and Sykes definitely and we will be back.

Outdoor table & chairs are in front small "garden" very near to the 2 refuse bins and looking onto a reasonably busy road - not ideal.. But flat was very comfortable, especially the bed, and overall well equipped.Excellent powerful shower.

Swallows Nest is just perfect for a retreat in the lovely village of Coniston.. The flat had everything that we needed and the views are amazing. Thank you.

This was my second visit to Swallow Nest and it was just as good the second time as it was the first.. I very much enjoyed my stay and would highly recommend it. Very comfortable and clean accommodation. Quiet. Close to shops, eateries and 15min walk to the lake. Lucked out on the weather again! Great relaxing holiday!
Mrs Thorpe

The flat was very well equipped and the owners have thought of everything from an apron for the kitchen and a clothes brush! The kitchen had been left with washing up liquid, dish washer tablets, and a few tea bags and coffee. The bed is comfy and there's plenty of hot water after a long day's hiking. Since it is in the centre of Coniston, shops and pubs are only a few minutes walk away.

Ms Williams

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.

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.

We loved this holiday, a home from home.. Great location and lovely local pubs and restaurants. There were several walking routes and leaflets showing us what activities were available in the local area.

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.

The cottage is very well situated for touring the Lake District. It is clean and has wonderful bathroom and modern kitchen. It is well located within Coniston itself and has been modernized. It is very clean and warm.

The apartment was very central and convenient for shops and pubs/restaurants. Even though there was no allocated parking we had no problems parking on the road outside the apartment. The view from the bedroom was particularly good and even though we were next door to a café and on a main road it was quiet. The apartment was modern, very well decorated and clean and we wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to anyone. The icing on the cake was the weather which couldn't have been better.
Mr Brown

Swallow's Nest was the perfect Lakes location, with easy access to good walking, lovely scenery and good facilities and attractions in Coniston. The apartment was beautifully appointed with all the comforts we needed for a top week. We especially appreciated the very helpful maps, walking guides and books that were available. They really helped us plan our days out. Highly recommended.
Mrs Rea

Had a really great holiday, the flat was excellent, warm and comfortable. Every possible need was catered for and provided. The location was ideal with shops, pubs and cafes all within easy walking distance. The lakes were also within easy reach, and a great place to walk and discover the delights of the mountains and fells. I would definitely recommend this lovely holiday flat!

We were delighted with Swallow's Nest. Everything was immaculate, and there were lots of unexpected extras. The location was ideal for us, as it was close to cafes, shops etc.

Fantastic property, everything thought off right down to there being a washing up sponge etc, small details but needed. Brilliantly placed within Coniston. Ideal for both lake, village and mountain.
