Lake District Cottages | The Coppermines Lakes Cottages

Looking for your perfect Lake District holiday cottage, from a team small enough to really know each cottage inside and out? Then you’ve found the right company.

Offering the largest collection of cottages in the Coniston area, The Coppermines Lakes Cottages are the local experts. Independent Agents, locally 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 and his family who still own our business today, making us one of the last independent agencies here in the Lake District. Over the years we have significantly grown to now offer over 80 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.

Ordnance Survey (OS) have recently published Britain’s favourite place to start a walk; with Ambleside claiming the top spot for the Lake District, coming in fifth out of the UK as a whole. The survey shows Ambleside as the hub of walking in the Lakes, with more people choosing to start a walk from here than anywhere else in Cumbria. The survey also revealed that other Cumbrian walks scored very highly, with the summits of Scafell Pike and Helvellyn also appearing in the top 10 of the most commonly tread paths.
