We where coming to coniston to stay for a couple of nights, and decided to book the valentines meal at the wilsons arms, due to the impressive online menu. Oh my gosh, we where not disappointed. The food was amazing, and we where most impressed to be picked up, and dropped off again after from our hotel by the lovely matthew. Nothing was to much trouble, for the very attentive staff. Our only disappointment was that we had not booked to stay here, instead of the nearby hotel we where staying at. This place is a little gem, and now back in blackpool we will be recommending to everyone we know. We will definately be staying here on our next trip to the lakes. Thank you again to matthew and his team for making valentines day so special – we will be back very soon.
A fabulous 2 night stay in the “penthouse” suite. The bar and restaurant area are welcoming and atmospheric,with a proper log fire and brilliant friendly staff. The food was fantastic, with hearty portions, well presented and REALLY tasty!
Our suite was a newly refurbished adjoining cottage, fitted to a high standard, with our own access. There will also shortly be a private hot tub available on the decking area attached to this suite,which looks fab! Clean, bright, modern and stylish but retaining warmth and relaxation.
We definitely recommend The Wilsons as a mini break base for the lakes.
On driving by didn’t expect too much, however the interior of the pub is modern and very welcoming. The staff were really friendly and attentive and the atmosphere suited both old and the young.
The food was served fairly quicky, faultless and beautifully presented. The portion sizes were really good so much so that we couldn’t manage one of the lovely puddings on offer.
What was really nice as a dog owner is that you could take your dog into the bar area too, even on an evening.
Would definitely recommend you stop in for a meal, infact I would even be tempted to stay there overnight next time.
Myself & my wife were on a ‘Groupon’ deal to this fantastic retreat, on arrival we were greeted with a very warm welcome which continued throughout our stay and which seemed to be a trademark of The Wilsons…we were offered the ‘penthouse suite’ which was greatly accepted and due to refurbishment in other bedrooms and as per last review we cannot praise the decor and warmth of this beautiful ‘cottage’. As you will see from recent comments the rating are generally 5 star and this is a very accurate grading for such a brilliant establishment…. The food was also 1st class from the breakfast menu through to the evening menu, every meal we had was cooked to perfection and served with a smile. We cannot praise The Wilsons highly enough and will definately be returning….. The only downside is that we didn’t stay longer.
