Coniston is simply an excellent base for any Lake District holiday. The village is packed with friendly pubs, local shops and lively cafes and there is incredible walking straight from the village centre, including the iconic Coniston Old Man. The village enjoys ample access to Coniston Water lake shore, with Coniston Boating Centre offering paddle-boarding, kayaking, sailing and more. There are also plenty of opportunities for wild-swimming including the lake, beautiful mountain tarns and the picturesque Church Beck river with its stunning waterfalls and deep, crystal clear pools. For cyclists, there are spectacular off-road mountain biking trails including those at nearby Grizedale Forest, as well as some stunning road routes through some of the country's most beautiful scenery.

For those who enjoy a quieter pace, The Ruskin Museum, which depicts the fascinating history of the area including the famous water speed record attempt of Donald Campbell is a must visit. While on the eastern shores of the lake lies Brantwood, the Victorian home of John Ruskin, where visitors can explore the historic house and vibrant arts centre and enjoy some delicious food from The Terrace cafe with its breath-taking lake and mountain views.

The wider Lake District area is also very easily accessible from Coniston, with popular destinations such as Ambleside, Bowness and Windermere just a short drive away.

In short, Coniston offers everything you could possibly want of a Lake District holiday - all right on your doorstep.

Great cottage which would easily accommodate 8 people. We stayed with 6 people and 2 dogs. There is now a secure gate at the end of the driveway which has been mentioned in earlier reviews. Pub very short walk and Coniston village only 10 minutes walk on a footpath. Easy access to the lake by foot, maybe 20/25 minutes. Cottage itself is very well planned for stays, kitchen has everything. There is a tumble dryer and good Wi-Fi. Great place.

Our extended family group had a really good week in Beckside. The cottage was very well-equipped and in an excellent location, particularly being so close to the old railway line. The cottage was warm and comfortable.

This lovely cottage is exactly as advertised. 4 spacious bedrooms, 2 of which can be converted to twin or double on request. We had 8 guests and had plenty of room in the lounges also. Comms with the owner/manager were easy and check in was straightforward. Highly recommended.
