Coniston

The Coniston area boasts some of the most fabulous views in the whole of the Lake District with the Yewdale Fells and The Old Man of Coniston in the Furness Fells rising dramatically to its full 803 metre summit, close to Coniston village and Coniston lake.

There is so much that springs to mind when one thinks of Coniston. Donald Campell attempting the water speed record in Bluebird on the lake, John Ruskin at Brantwood, Swallows and Amazons etc. It's a superb location for walking and climbing and for simply getting away from the stresses and strains of life!
