Coniston Holidays, Coniston, Cumbria, The Lake District (Sleeps 1 - 4)

Coniston Holidays offers self catering accommodation in the pretty Cumbrian village of Coniston. Our holiday cottages are located in the heart The Lake District National Park. The cottages offer an ideal base to explore the nearby areas of the Lake District such as Windermere, Ambleside, Grasmere and Hawkshead.

Coniston has quite a history including copper mining & slate quarries all of which can still be seen on the fells which surround the village. Perhaps best known for the lake, Coniston Water, where Donald Campbell lost his life and is now buried in the village graveyard. On the east side of the lake with stunning views towards Coniston Old Man is Brantwood, the former home of John Ruskin. Alternatively, visit the Ruskin Museum which lies in the village centre.

Take a leisurely trip on the lake aboard the gondola or one of the launches. For the more energetic there are water sports, cycling in nearby Grizedale Forest or walking the Coniston Fells. Tarn Hows, another beauty spot is close by as is the attractive village of Hawkshead.
