Coniston is a true paradise for those that love exploring and getting their daily dose of Lakeland air. Once a small copper mining village, Coniston has a welcoming community of locals and is home to a selection of conveniences including a handful of pubs, cafes and shops – all presented on two typical, Lakeland stone-built streets.
Providing an impressive backdrop to the village centre, Coniston Old Man is one of the more popular Wainwright walks, while Dow Crag, Wetherlam and Swirl How sit in the same Coniston fell range. If you’re looking for something cultural, Coniston is well known for its links to John Ruskin, a famous writer and art critic. You can visit his former Brantwood home when taking a ride on the local steam yacht gondola that departs from the Coniston Boating Centre.
