About Coniston Village
In the heart of the English Lake District lies the historical copper mining village of Coniston, perfectly positioned alongside the picturesque Coniston Water and underneath the majestic Coniston Fells of which Coniston Old Man, 2635ft, is the most famous.
Today the village is welcoming, warm and friendly. The two Victorian streets still house traditional shops such as the village butcher, grocer, bakery, newsagent, dairy, five pubs, several cafes and highly acclaimed restaurant (Steam Bistro), so there’s enough to keep you occupied during your time here.
