All Destinations UK Cumbria Coniston

The traditional village of Coniston can be found nestled on the western shore of Coniston Water, the third largest lake in the Lake District. Home to a variety of activities and spectacular scenery, Coniston provides a great base for outdoor holidays in Cumbria, in the heart of the Lake District National Park.

Lake District Landmarks No holiday to the Lake District is complete without visiting some of the scattering of lakes and iconic landmarks that inspired Beatrix Potter to pen her famous novels, favoured by visitors and locals alike. Head to Tarn Hows, a popular spot to enjoy the majestic mountainous and lakeside views. The Old Man of Coniston is an iconic mountain in the Furness fells, enjoyed by fell-walkers; take in the breath-taking views at the summit and picturesque waterfalls en route or investigate the Tilberthwaite Slate quarries for an interesting day out spotting divers and rock climbers.

Activities in the Lake District Coniston Water is the third largest lake in the Lake District and provides a smattering of outdoor activities for all. Old quarry tracks and bridleways make popular spots for rock climbing and mountain biking. Abandoned for decades, Mother Nature has now consumed them with blankets of woodland, making a perfectly pretty spot to sit awhile and bask in the great outdoors. For on-the-water activities, rowing boats, canoes, kayaks and sailing dinghies can be hired for the entire family to enjoy. Alternatively, sit back, relax and embark upon a steam yacht cruise and savour the gentle gliding motion whilst soaking up the waterside views.
