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 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, the neighbouring Dow Crag and Wetherlam or the idyllic Tarn Hows.

Spent a family weekend at Greencroft this weekend. What a PERFECT place to stay. Handy location for pubs, shops, fish n chips. What impressed me the most was the place was not only spotless and beautifully decorated but the fact it was all festive and non-clinical. What a great find, great location and wonderful home from home

A lovely cottage. Thanks to a great housekeeping team, spotlessly clean and welcoming. Even though it rained every day the cottage made our stay enjoyable. Thanks to everyone.

This is our fourth consecutive year staying in a Coppermines cottage in Coniston (different one each time) and we loved this one. We will definitely be returning.

Great location at start of path to Old Man but still right in the centre of the village. Nice garden with plentiful seating. Good accommodation with everything you need and excellent local information file. Good booking process. Coppermines Valley itself is great with plenty of different walks long and short on the doorstep so no need to drive. We did Old Man, Wetherlam and the valley to Tarn Hows. Lots of information about mining dotted around the valley. Lots of food options if you want to eat out, we stopped at supermarket in Kendal to get essentials on the way.

I've stayed at the Coppermines, Green Croft two times now and the house is fantastic. The furniture and fittings are modern with an excellent kitchen for cooking with exceptional views.

This is the third time we have visited the property if I need say more? The property itself is decorated to a high standard capturing the cosy elements of the lakes such as wood burner, with well appointed appliances and underfloor heating in kitchen and luxury bathrooms and deep piled carpets upstairs. Having visited both to walk with adult groups and as a family with two young children the property is suitable for all. Arriving late with the kids on a Friday night and unprepared - Fish & Chip shop approx 400 yards away. Spar the same. Pub(s) the same! Coniston Lake 15 mins on foot with a play park on route. For the walkers; direct footfall to Old Man and The Sun Inn as you reward with home cooked food, ale and a combo of dog clad locals and fellow ramblers.
