A holiday cottage in Coniston takes you away from the busy streets of
Bowness, and the sometimes touristy feel of Lake Windermere. This
picturesque and peaceful village lies in the west of the Lakes, on the
edge of Coniston Water - the Lake District's third largest lake.
Overlooked by the dramatic presence of Coniston Old Man - a famous Lake
District hike - the lake provides water-borne activities in
Coniston's Victorian stream yacht gondola and traditional launches
offer relaxed, scenic cruises. You'll learn about Donald Campbell's
famous water speed record attempt in 'Bluebird', and explore Peel
Island which provided the setting for 'Wild Cat Island' in Arthur
Ransome's Swallows and Amazons.
Overlooking Coniston is Brantwood, historic home of the artist, writer
and creative thinker John Ruskin. The house is open to the public and
has an excellent cafe, The Jumping Jenny, with superb lake views.
For exploring further afield, a holiday home in Coniston provides a
peaceful, picturesque but convenient base. Find Hawkshead and
Windermere to your east, Langdale and Grasmere to the north and
Ulverston to the south, with manageable journeys by bus or car. For a
spectacular scenic drive, head west to the Duddon Valley and follow
Wrynose Pass to Eskdale, followed by Hardknott Pass to Little Langdale.
Very steep roads but worth it for the scenery!
