Self Catering Accommodation and Holiday Cottages in Coniston

It's difficult not to wax lyrical about Coniston. The Lake District is one of England's most popular tourist destinations, yet despite its beauty, Coniston never feels crowded or hurried. Maybe it's the position beside the lake, or possibly it's the magnificence of the surrounding peaks (including The Old Man of Coniston), but life feels more relaxed the moment you cross the border. The Lake District is loved by ramblers who can't get enough of the hundreds of miles of paths going up mountains, around lakes, across fells, and through some of the prettiest villages you'll ever see, but even if you've never owned a pair of walking shoes in your life, you'll find plenty to happily occupy your time in Coniston.

Lake Coniston Holiday Cottages

One of the best ways to explore the area is by boat, either on a scheduled cruise, hiring a canoe or day boat, or with a hop-on-hop-off ticket that lets you plan your itinerary.

Numerous historical houses and places of interest dot Coniston and the neighbouring villages. Brantwood House, once home to John Ruskin, is now an art centre and museum with a fine collection of paintings and breathtaking gardens. As well as Beatrix Potter World, fans of this well-loved British author should go to Hill Top, the 17th Century farmhouse and gardens maintained by the National Trust to look as they would have when she lived there. Coniston is also the final resting place of Donald Campbell; The Ruskin Museum in Coniston plays host to his memory and that of the famous Bluebird K7.

Coniston is liberally sprinkled with cosy pubs dishing up tasty fare made from top quality local produce. Just what you need after you have scaled 'The Old Man'. Pike, and to a lesser extent, trout and perch, live in the lake, so if you prefer a self-catering Coniston holiday, you could always spend the day catching your dinner!

The once rural community of Coniston has lost none of its copious charm. It has successfully avoided over-commercialisation and development to remain as attractive to visitors today as it was in the Victorian era.
