Coniston & Grizedale Forest

Effortlessly floating aboard the plush walnut and velvet dressed Steam Yacht Gondola on Coniston Water, a visit to Coniston and you’re whisked to the glorious time of the Grand Victorian Lakes Tour. Coniston is an area that certainly has a tale or two to tell. Here you’ll find the remains of 18th century copper mines; the region’s most eclectic museum and art collection, with a tribute to the world speed record holder Sir Donald Campbell, which he broke on Coniston Water; and a dining terrace with the most envied view in the Lake District, Brantwood.

For eateries, you’ll find some of the Lake District’s top hidden gems too, including The Drunken Duck and Steam Bistro.

This area is also home to Grizedale Forest, where you’ll find just under 25 km² of adventure – GoApe, 40 sculptures, mountain bike trails and walks – where generations continue to write their own tales of adventure and exploration.

So, pull up a chair, enjoy a pint of local Bluebird Bitter and let’s spin a yarn, as we like to say around these parts.
