Bridge House is the largest of the Bridge Cottages and one of the oldest buildings in Coniston village. Over 300 years, they have formerly been the village post office, a butcher and around the beginning of the 1900s, a well-known restaurant. Though centrally located for all the amenities Coniston has to offer, Bridge House is pleasantly secluded and peaceful.

A spacious village cottage, Bridge House has plenty of room for up to 8 guests, with a large living room and vast kitchen/diner as well as 4 en suite bedrooms cottage plus a private hot tub. The house is ideally situated in the centre of Coniston and is just a short walk from the local stores, gift shops, cafe's and several fantastic pubs. Popular valley and mountain walks including the Old Man of Coniston & Tarn Hows can be accessed from the front door and the lake shore is less than a 15 minute stroll away.

Bridge House is the perfect base for anyone wanting to explore this spectacular area, spend the day walking, sight-seeing or on the water. Then return to relax in the bubbling hot tub or cook up a storm in the well-equipped kitchen. Perfect!


Bridge House is plenty large enough for 8 but if you have a bigger group, you can be linked to The Bridge Suite next door, for an additional two bedrooms (and bathroom) thus extending the sleeping capacity from 8 to 12. If you wanted even more room, you could also link, via the porch, to The Old Post Cottage, which has room for 4, and so groups of up to 16 are easily and comfortably accommodated together. Ideal for those big family get-togethers and celebrations.

Ground Floor
A slated entrance leads you into a huge kitchen/dining room, which can seat up to 20. Double hobs, ovens and slate work tops makes catering for big groups easy and hopefully hassle-free! The kitchen is fully fitted with gas range cooker & large hob, dishwasher, microwave, washing machine, dryer & fridge/freezer.

The sitting room has ample space for the largest of groups to relax comfortably in. The central focus of the room is the impressive slate log fire, perfect for admiring on a cold winters night. There is also a TV & DVD player to keep the little (and big) ones entertained.

To help keep the living areas tidy the house also benefits from a cloakroom, perfect for wet jackets, boots and bags.

There is also a separate WC, helpful should you just need to nip in from the hot tub.

First Floor
There's plenty of room upstairs too, with 4 doubles or twins and all with their own en suite bath/shower rooms.

Bedroom 1 - king size bed or twin 2'6" single beds, en-suite shower & WC
Bedroom 2 - king size bed or twin 2'6" single beds en-suite bathroom with shower & WC
Bedroom 3 - king size bed or twin 2'6" single beds en-suite shower room with WC

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.

Excellent facilities and location. For a group requiring twin rooms this was perfect. Particularly liked the fact that all rooms were en-suite.

Lovely cottage full of character and charm. Ideal location right in the centre of the village with shops, pubs and walks right on the doorstep. Well equipped kitchen with all the appliances you would need for a family holiday. We loved the place and didn't want to leave.

Great cottage to meet up with friends. Two good sixe rooms downstairs for socialising. All bedrooms en suite which is excellent not to mention the hot tub. We would definitely return.

Cottage is lovely - brilliantly located and enough rooms to be a very flexible space for a bigger family. Good responsiveness from the Coppermines team during our stay. Hot tub was amazing. Great BBQ area.

The whole family were very complementary about the location, the presentation and the warm welcome we received. My wife and I have stayed several times at your properties and we have always been very happy with all aspects of our stay.

Loved the location. Good amenities in the property. Taking into account Covid restrictions we couldn't have wished for any better. Hot tub was superb.
