About the location

NIBTHWAITE, CONISTON WATER

Torver 6 miles; Ulverston 8 miles; Coniston 9 miles.

Nibthwaite is a small hamlet in the Crake Valley, just a short distance from the shores of Allan Tarn, featured in Arthur Ransome's book Swallows And Amazons as 'Octopus Lagoon', and a mile from the shores of Coniston Water in the beautiful Lake District National Park. At the southern tip of Coniston Water, where Allan Tarn turns into the Crake River, lies this small hamlet. Coniston Water, one of the most imposing and beautiful English lakes, is situated to the west of Lake Windermere. To the northern end of the lake, the pretty village of Coniston is surrounded by some of the most beautiful scenery in the Lake District National Park, and this area makes a superb base for touring Hawkshead, the Langdales, Ambleside and Windermere. There is excellent walking, cycling and mountain biking from the area, and climbing is available locally on Coniston Old Man, Tilberthwaite and Wetherlam, while Grizedale Forest offers lovely woodland trails. The quiet lake is ideal for dinghy sailing, canoeing, or a leisure cruise on the beautiful steam yacht 'Gondola'. Visit the Beatrix Potter Gallery at Hawkshead, Tarn Hows, one of the most visited beauty spots in the country, or Esthwaite Water, famous for its fishing.
