Here at The Coppermines Lakes Cottages, we want everybody to be able to enjoy the incredible beauty of The Lake District.

For guests with accessibility needs we have produced Visit England Accessibility Guides for most of our cottages. These guides aim to give you as much information about a particular cottage as possible, to help you determine whether a particular cottage is right for you. You can find links to the Accessibility Guides on each cottage’s respective listing. You can also find them listed at the bottom of this page.

Nearly all of our cottages come with free wifi – look out for the wifi logo on each cottage’s listing.

If you have any other questions about any of our cottages please ask. Our small, friendly team based right here in the Lakes each have personal experience of each of our cottages and we are happy to answer any questions you may have.

Accessibility Information: Coniston and surrounding area

Coniston Village has good access to accessible walking routes. Tarn Hows, just 2.5 miles from Coniston is perhaps one of the best known and most popular – and for good reason. This 1 & 3/4 mile route has disabled parking, level access and 2 Tramper Mobility Scooters available. The circular route around the tarn takes in shoreline, woodland and open fellside with magnificent views. Tarn Hows is a Lake District gem which everyone can enjoy. You can find out more here.

From the village there is also an accessible walk along a mountain road into Coppermines Valley. This uphill, but relatively short route, takes in spectacular waterfalls and towering mountain views, giving a real sense of being in a beautiful and mountenous environment.

Grizedale Forest, near Coniston Water, features breath-taking views, stunning artwork installations and forest trails. There are a variety of accessible routes through the forest, plus Tramper hire is available. Find out more.

In nearby Windermere, Orrest Head provides a Miles Without Styles route with panoramic views from the summit so impressive that they inspired a young Alfred Wainwright to develop a lifelong passion for the Lake District. You can find more Miles Without Styles Routes here.
