We are looking forward to a busy weekend ahead of us with the Coniston 14 (a local run organised by a small committee from the Village). The Coniston 14 Road Race was established in 1982 and is organised each year by a small, enthusiastic committee supported by approx 100 local volunteers on the day. Over £20,000 is raised each year and donated to several charities in the area. Lets hope the snow keeps away for the Runners. We wish them all the best and Good Luck!
We have also had some fantastic reviews on Trip Advisor lately, so we thought we would put them here to share with all our readers. Well done to the Team who work so hard and make all our guests and visitors so welcome with good food.
Just spent 2 nights there , it was better than we expected, good log fire to sit up to, the best of staff, excellent home grown food & good menu, very clean all round & modern bedrooms fully heated, the owner, Fran could not have been more helpful, we will go there again in the near future.
Stayed at the Wilsons Arms for a two night mid-week break, 11/12 March 2013. All staff were very friendly from our arrival right through to our departure, and nothing was too much trouble (even our dog was made to feel welcome). Recently refurbished room was very clean and modern. The 3 course meal that came with the deal on the first night was extremely good, with really generous portions (so generous, that neither of us managed a pudding, so settled for coffee instead!). Although currently going through a refurbishment, there was no disruption to our visit whatsoever. We are intrigued to see the end result of the red phone box ‘fish tank’, and the glass covered ‘well’ that the builders were working on while we were there (hopefully Fran can get the pictures onto the website when they are finished, so that we can see the end result?).
Please pass on our thanks to the team for making our stay so enjoyable
Called in while on a mountain bike tour for tea and scones, no problem that we were rather muddy. Tea and scones (with fresh cream and home made jam) were great as was the homely fire. Had a chat with the lanlord who is a new owner and he is in the process of setting up a mountain bike taxi service… sounds good.
