Bed and Breakfast Coniston Lake District
The village of Coniston can be found towards the southern end of the Lake District National Park. It is located a short distance from the northern end of Coniston Water, between Coniston Water and Coniston Old Man on the A593 between Broughton-in-Furness and Ambleside. Nearby, off the B5285 is Tarn Hows, a popular viewpoint, where Sir Malcolm Campbell first achieved the water speed record back in 1939. It is the third-largest lake in the Lake District, and many people head there to enjoy a spot of canoeing, boating and kayaking.
Bed and Breakfast lake Coniston
Coniston Lake is five miles long, and with a maximum depth of 184 feet, Coniston Water is the third largest of the lakes.
It developed as a result of both farming and the local copper and slate mines. It grew in popularity as a tourist location during Victorian times, due in part to a branch of the Furness Railway.
Coniston itself is a pretty village, very typical of the charm and appeal of many Lake District villages. It also has a fair few Coniston B&Bs available to stay in for your trip to the Lakes.
Lake District b&b Coniston
Coniston is particularly popular among walkers and hikers. There are some good reasons for this: The Old Man of Coniston (a fell rather than a person) towers some 2,634 feet high above the village. It offers superb views across the area and there are many well-worn and clearly-marked paths that will guide you to the summit.
It would be easy not to stray beyond Coniston, thanks to its charm and appeal. However other key Lake District sights, including Windermere, Scafell Pike, Keswick and Lake Ullswater are all within easy reach. The latter is also home to Aira Force, a waterfall that is well worth a walk to see.
Your Coniston B&B will be well-placed to see all the delights the Lake District can offer. All you need to do is to choose which Coniston B&B will suit you best. We can offer access to Coniston accommodation of all kinds, so take a closer look now.
