Local Activities
Torver and the nearby Crake & Woodland Valleys, are beautiful and tranquil areas well worth visiting and exploring. The landscapes here have changed little over time, with farming and forestry still very much in evidence. In springtime the nearby woods that dot the landscape are carpeted with wild garlic and scented bluebells, and away from the noise of the traffic the wildlife and bird song can be truly appreciated.

The area is very popular with walkers and cyclists of all abilities who enjoy escaping the central Lakes crowds. Peaks such as the Old Man of Coniston, can be accessed from the area. Should you be looking for something a little less challenging then the idyllic Torver Common or nearby Beacon Tarn are all popular walking spots.

For cycling enthusiasts there are some fantastic trails to be found in the area and the delights of Grizedale Forest are only a short ride away. For runners of all abilities the Lakeland Trail series visits Coniston village yearly offering 5k, 10k, marathon and half marathon options. A favourite events amongst visitors and locals is the annual Coniston 14, 13.9 miles of scenic beauty as runners of all ages lap Coniston Water. For endurance athletes the Montane Lakeland 100 & Lakeland 50 events depart from Coniston each July and a whole host of water sports can be enjoyed down at the boating centre. Lastly for those who come to walk the area, no trip to Coniston would be complete without a climb up the Old Man of Coniston.

Stunning cottage, very spacious and spotlessly clean. I really don't think the cottage could be improved upon.

We have enjoyed a wonderful week in this beautiful cottage. We have walked from the cottage to Coniston and enjoyed eating out most nights in the village at The Steam Bistro & The Black Bull. We knew the cottage would be lovely having stayed many times at Gate House and we call this cottage "our little Gate House". Thank you!

I chose Coppermines because of the quality of the cottages on offer through it. A quality service but with a local, personal feel to it. I can't think of anything that could be improved. We have loved our stay and the whole booking process and information in the lead up was professional, friendly and spot-on. We would definitely return to Cragg Cottage. Perfect!

How lucky we were with the weather this week! It's been sunny every day. Cragg Cottage is stunning. And better than home from home (there's a few styling and decorating ideas we're taking home with us)! This is our perfect house. Eating out wise; Our Plaice in Coniston is great and The Wilson's Arms up the road does delicious food. Fab walks from the doorstep too, Thank you!

Another gorgeous cottage ,having stayed several times at both Gate House and Roseberry Cottage, the hot tub is a real luxurious addition to the already beautifully appointed Cragg Cottage. The secure garden is also a real benefit. We'll be back (hopefully). Many thanks as always!.

Beautiful cottage which we've enjoyed immensely. Standard is superb and thoroughly deserves a 5 star rating. We explored Coniston, Ambleside, Windermere and Tarn Hows. Here's a path to Torver out of the cottage. One of our best Christmas's ever!

Beautiful new property for Coppermines agency. We have stayed in Gate House in Coniston a few years ago so we knew the standard of this property would be of high quality given it has the same owners. The property fully deserves the 5 star rating. Thoroughly enjoyed our pre-Christmas break walking break. Thank you very much.
