Coniston Holiday Accommodation

Coniston, as well as being one of the Lake District's main walker/climber/friendly holiday destinations and forever associated with the late Donald Campbell, it is an ideal point from which to explore the history, culture and traditions of a typical Lakeland community. Here, beneath the protective cloak of one of the regions highest fells and close to Coniston Water and the idyllic Tarn Hows, visitors gather with a holiday itinerary which invariably includes an ascent of the 803 metre "Old Man". Fortunately for those whose holiday is devoted to walking the fells, the bed and breakfast, guest house and hotel accommodation owners have a clear and helpful understanding of the walkers' needs and comfort. However, it is not only the pull of the fells which brings visitors to Coniston. A cruise on the placid Coniston Water aboard the iconic reconstructed Victorian steam yacht Gondola or a family picnic on grassy slopes in the beautiful setting of Tarn Hows are just two popular examples of the many attractions in and around Coniston.
Daily provisions are readily available from the village's small collection of shops and stores together with the social amenities of comfortable eating places, a Tourist Information Centre, a bank, a post office and cash points (ATM).
