The area of Coniston and Grizedale Forest is located in the Central & Southern Lake District. Coniston is a good-size village, with excellent eateries and pubs including one of the Lake District’s most famous breweries, Coniston Brewery Co famous for its Bluebird Bitter. Coniston is an iconic part of the Lake District in a unique location. It sits at the mouth of the Coppermines Valley, at the foot the Old Man of Coniston mountain, beside Coniston Water and neighbouring the tranquil Grizedale Forest – an adventure playground for anyone who loves the outdoors.

As well as walking there’s lots of history on the doorstep of Coniston; The Ruskin Museum gives ‘The Story of Coniston’ and Brantwood House takes visitors on a journey

… On Coniston Water with the National Trust Steam Yacht Gondola you can travel back in time and experience life as a wealthy Victorian tourist, riding in style with open her opulent saloon and open-air decks.

Cycling is a popular activity when visiting Coniston because Grizedale Forest Visitor Centre is only a 40-minute cycle ride away or 20 minute. From here bikes can be hired and cyclists can choose from x routes, graded with various difficulties. Test your endurance and riding skills or simply enjoy the beautiful forest surroundings. There’s also GoApe zip wire and tree net course at Grizedale Forest. And it is home to the UK’s largest forest sculpture park.

Tarn Hows lies north of Coniston Water at the head of the Coppermines Valley and is one of the most popular gentle walks in the Lake District. It can easily be reached from Coniston Village and was popular with famous local resident Beatrix Potter, who lived down the road at Near Sawyer.

Here in Beatrix Potter territory there’s the 17th century house Hill Top in the hamlet of Near Sawyer. Sep inside and it is like Beatrix has just nipped out into the garden. Tower Bank Arms is just up the road from Hill Top and is a lovely country pub, which famously featured in The Tale of Jemima Puddleduck by Beatrix Potter.

The valley then takes you into the heart of the Lake District, Ambleside which is less than 8-miles by road from Coniston.

The picturesque village of Hawkshead, where William Wordsworth attended the Grammar School, is less that 4-miles from Coniston village. You’ll also find the Beatrix Potter Gallery here, housed in her husband’s former solicitors office building.

Within the village, the Black Bull is well-known for its famous Lake District beer Bluebird, which is brewed at the onsite microbrewery using the lovely fresh mountain water that comes down from Coniston Old Man and is a must after a walk up the mountain. The ale gets its name from the famous speed boat that Donald Campbell famously broke several world speed records in on Coniston Water in 1957.
