Local Activities
Woodland, Torver and the Duddon Valley, a beautiful and tranquil area 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, Caw Fell and Greyfriar can all be accessed from the area. Should you be looking for something a little less challenging then the idyllic Lickle Valley, the Dunnerdale Fells and Beacon Tarn are all popular walking spots.

Really enjoyed our weekend at Millers Cottage Coniston. The cottage is quirky my 6 year old loved the bedroom upstairs, she was like a princess in the bed also she loved playing hide and seek in all the cupboards. The owner had lit the fire for our arrival which was lovely I felt relaxed straight away we took our dog he also enjoyed the walk at the side of the cottage we will definitely be back I recommend the steam gondola to Brantwood and sitting outside the pub for lunch was beautiful and dogs are allowed on the boat and pub. Also we took lots of throws which came in handy with our dog and daughter made them extra cozyB at night....
