Find Holidays in Coniston
Perfect for… dramatic fells, picturesque lakeside location and a thriving centre
The village of Coniston is home to one of the largest and most charming lakes in Cumbria, Coniston Water. Another of its iconic features is The Old Man of Coniston, the dramatic and imposing fell that can be seen from the centre of the village.
The village itself is filled with fascinating features, including the Monk Coniston estate, formally owned by Beatrix Potter and since her death, owned by the National Trust. Poet John Ruskin also lived in the area, in a grand lakeside property called Brantwood, which runs family events and concerts throughout the year. Tarn Hows is an incredible beauty spot, one of the most popular destinations in Lakeland, and offers incredible walking trails.
Back in the centre of town, you will be met with a good selection of shops, pubs and cafes to satisfy your culinary cravings.
