Update, 1st November 2020

Following the Government announcement on 31st October regarding the four-week lockdown in England from 5th November until 2nd December; please be assured that we will be contacting all guests with an affected booking directly to arrange rescheduling of your holiday. You will be contacted by us shortly.

Offering the largest collection of cottages in the Coniston area, The Coppermines Lakes Cottages are local independent agents, owned, managed and staffed since 1982. The business was originally developed from the humble restorations of the historic Coppermines buildings, situated in the Coniston Coppermines Valley by Philip Johnston who still owns the business today, making The Coppermines Lakes Cottages one of the last independent agencies here in the Lake District. Over the years we have significantly grown to now offer over 90 hand-picked, unique, self-catering Lake District cottages (many pet-friendly), all of which are situated within the UNESCO World Heritage boundary.

Whilst we have added to our collection of cottages over time, our ethos remains the same: ‘‘providing self-catering cottages of quality & character combined with exceptional personal service’’.

The Lake District is constantly voted the UK’s number one holiday destination and in 2017 was awarded UNESCO World Heritage Status. With its endless views, vibrant villages and abundance of activities on offer, it’s not hard to see why. So please browse through our site and let us inspire you in planning your next visit to this beautiful corner of the UK. Should you need any help or advice then please do not hesitate to contact a member of our friendly office team.
