 Close to the shores of Coniston Water, the third longest lake in the Lake District, and overlooked by Coniston Old Man, one of the most popular fells in the Lakes for walking or running, this well served village is surrounded by spectacular wild landscapes and renowned as a base for outdoor adventure. Historically, Coniston was a rural farming community, owned largely by Furness Abbey and its monastic order who made much of their money farming the now famous Herdwick sheep. Rich in copper and slate, Coniston also became a mining and quarrying village. And, in 1858 a railway was built to service the mining industry, which opened to tourists a year later making Coniston a popular holiday destination loved for its outstanding natural beauty. Here at Lakelovers Lake District Cottages we have some of the best Coniston holiday cottages in the area.
