Anthony and Elizabeth would like to welcome you to our two self-catering cottage style apartments here at Coniston Lodge. We are situated a short stroll away from Coniston village. The two apartments are called ‘Yewdale Crags’ and ‘Tarn Hows’. Take a cruise on the National Trusts ’Gondola’ around Coniston Water. This beautifully restored Steam Yacht transports you back to an age of Victorian elegance. As you leave the jetty you are hardly aware you are moving, so smooth is the steam engine. It has an indoor heated saloon, as well as open deck seats, so you can enjoy the spectacular views of lake and mountain whatever the weather. Or take a journey on one of the Coniston Launch Company’s traditional wooden lake cruisers. If you want to be a little more individual you can hire a rowing boat...Anthony and Elizabeth would like to welcome you to our two self-catering cottage style apartments here at Coniston Lodge.

Or take a journey on one of the Coniston Launch Company’s traditional wooden lake cruisers. If you want to be a little more individual you can hire a rowing boat or electric self drive boat from the Coniston Boating Centre and plough your own course around the lake. A visit to Beatrix Potters home, ‘Hill Top’, at Near Sawrey is a must, especially if you have children who have read the stories about ‘Peter Rabbit’ and all his friends. They will be enchanted to see the garden where Miss Potter imagined her characters lived and which inspired her stories. The Ruskin Museum, at the top of the village main street, originally as the name suggests, told the story of ‘John Ruskin’, the 19 century poet, essayist and social reformer. But today it’s displays tell the history of Coniston. There are exhibits about the Copper Mines and Slate Quarries. The age of the Railway, the last passenger train ran in 1958. Hill Farming was one of the main employers 100 years ago, you will learn about our hardy ‘Herdwick’ sheep, which live out on the mountains all year round. there are exhibits on fishing in the lake, and ‘Greek Lace Needlework’ a skill brought back to the village by John Ruskin himself, so that the womenfolk might have a skill that would provide some extra income. The new wing to the Museum which has been completed recently, will soon house the Campbell ‘Bluebird’ when its restoration is complete, but there are already multitude of artifacts, photos and other items which are part of this truly British engineering achievement on display.
