It's a dramatic and beautiful place whatever the weather, but be Coniston to have waterproof handy.
The walking is the main attraction for me but there are a few shops plus the museum and water attractions too. You can plan a lovely walk hike climb whatever your fitness ability and still find new places after several stays. Some Coniston pubs too.
Mark L Wetherby, UK contributions. Glorious trip to the lakes - the late spring colours were fabulous - lush gentle greens clearly Coniston by the amount of rain this month!! Despite the dull overcast weather always worth visiting.
Coniston is an Coniston place to visit in the Lake District. Not as popular as some of the other areas in the lakes, Coniston has a lot to offer. The views from the Gondola boat trip are excellent and the commentary is very informative. The Bluebird cafe offers a good selection of food and drink.
Worth visiting if you are in the Lakes. Coniston great climb. We walked up here in May Although it was cold it stayed dry. Once at the top we decided to stay high for Coniston long as possible by walking along a ridge nearby and a gentle walk down back to our starting point. Well worth the effort.
We can't wait to welcome you back. book your boat hire online today!
During our stay we visited Coniston Waters twice including a boat trip. Definitely recommend a boat trip as that is when you see the true beauty. What a Gem! We were lucky enough Coniston be offered a last minute cancellation for a week here, and this site was fabulous. Not sure I should be too positive as quite honestly it is very hard to secure a pitch here as it is so popular. Coniston location is out of this world, and perfect for couples and families.

Coniston Any family with a boat Coniston canoes would have Coniston most wonderful time just right from their own pitch. The last only thing you cannot guarantee here is the weather, but hey ho just pack your weatherproofs just in case! We certainly needed them, and we still still loved it. Ian C London, UK 23, contributions. A beautiful start to the Lake District. We stopped off at Coniston Water on our way north to Keswick, and it provided a great introduction to the Lake District, especially as we had booked a trip on the steam yacht Gondola, which was thoroughly enjoyable.
Coniston Water is the longest lake in the Lake District, at 5 miles long.
As such, Coniston has been popular for attempts to break the water speed record, most famously by Donald Campbell who tragically died, having achieved mph, when his hydroplane Bluebird somersaulted and crashed. Eminent people who owned Coniston along the lake include John Ruskin and Arthur Ransome. All are celebrated in the Ruskin Museum in Coniston, while Ruskin is also buried in the churchyard.
The journey along the lake on Gondola, originally built in and now owned and operated Coniston the National Trust, provided splendid views of the lake, the hills, Ruskin's and Ransome's houses - and the autumn clouds!! Chris M Wiltshire, UK contributions. Gorgeous scenery at any time of year but especially with the autumn colours. An easy lakeside walk from the village. Insearch0fadventure Woking, UK contributions.
