For those who love the countryside The Coppermines Mountain Cottages offer you the chance to explore the fascination of the fells or to simply relax, unwind, enjoy the clear mountain air and watch the quietly grazing Herdwick sheep, beneath a stunning panorama of mountain peaks.

Coniston Water can be seen at the foot of the valley, which is reached by a road of pinnel stone construction, little changed from its original Victorian appearance, suitable for most vehicles except the lowest of sports cars.

Millrace is a delightfully rustic mountain cottage offering easy access onto the surrounding Coniston fells. This cosy 2 bedroomed cottage enjoys open views towards the Old Man of Coniston. Plentiful walks are available from the front door and the property enjoys a perfectly positioned private hot tub offering open fell views.
