Cottage -
2 Bedrooms , 2 Bathrooms , Sleeps 4
Coniston, 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.

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...

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 biking. For the latter, there are the tracks in the nearby Grizedale Forest and the ultimate challenge of the route to the summit of Skiddaw from the Whinlatter Forest farther north.
