Coniston, Duddon Valley, Lake District, Cumbria, England
Built in 1850 by the Coniston Copper Company, this cottage provided accommodation to workers from Copper Mine Valley. Miner's Cottage is rustic and full of charm, and is set in one of the most beautiful spots in Coniston Village.

At the foot of the Old Man of Coniston, this cottage has superb and unspoilt views of Coniston Water, Grizedale Forest and Yewdale, and is the perfect setting for a relaxing break for couples or families, yet only a few minutes walk from all the amenities that Coniston has to offer.

The path behind the cottage will lead you to the Old Man of Coniston or you could wander down to the lake for fishing or take part in the various water sport activities. Cycling (or mountain biking) is also very popular, with Grizedale forest on the opposite side of Coniston Water. For more leisurely moments, the Gondola, a Vi...

My husband and I snatched a much needed week away and have spent it at Miner’s Cottage which looks down over Coniston Waters. The cottage is very comfortable and has everything needed. It is well appointed and tastefully furnished and we have enjoyed our short stay here immensely. We’d love to be able to spend more time enjoying the walks...

Management response:

The house was beautiful, very tastefully restored retaining the character you would expect from a period property. It was spotlessly clean and the views from the front windows were outstanding. I can't recommend this little cottage enough, the rooms were all good sizes and the owners have thought about everything that visitors might need to know from places to eat...

Thanks for taking the time to write a review and for your lovely comments. We're really pleased you had a great time in Coniston and enjoyed your stay. All the very best, Mandy

The views of Coniston and the lake were amazing and we spent lots of time looking from the window seats in the bedroom and living room. The children loved the binoculars and games. We had good walks up Old Man and in...

About the neighbourhood
The original village was built around the 16 century Coniston Hall, but is now very much a Victorian village with lovely tea rooms, cafes and traditional Lakeland pubs. Coniston is a favourite with walkers, cyclists, and sailors, as well as those simply wanting a relaxing getaway break.

Lots of opportunities for sailing, canoeing, rowing, windsurfing, kayaking and hire of electric powered boats. Tuition and advice for all levels of ability is available from locally based qualified instructors. You will find more information from Coniston Boating Centre. Fishing with a rod licence from many of the public shores is allowed. Contact the Tourist Information Centre for full information of permits and purchase or hire of tackle.

Options galore from the leisurely pedal to the energy of mountain...
