What a lovely unspoilt place. Very picturesque and regardless of weather so nice to be. Not trashed by visitors either which is also a bonus. Loved it.

Visited for the day, hired a motor boat for £30 per hour that way you can go out into the water yourself, the dog was ok to go on the boat as wet, staff helpful and friendly

Brilliant location for exploring The Lakes. Steaped in ongoing history. Plenty to do on Coniston Water from canoos kayaks sailing boats to pleasure steam boats. Own water swimming or simply enjoying an ice cream on the shoreline. We took advantage of the very beautiful walks...More

Coniston water is about a 10 minute walk away from Coniston village. There is parking, a café, a couple of small shops, public toilets and boat hire down by the water. We had a little walk around Coniston water and then hired a rowing boat.

We had hired a holiday cottage right next to Coniston water. A nice lake how ever stay away from the main tourist area and find a secluded area around the lake. The main area is rip off for parking and anything else.

The Hoathwaite National Trust campsite looks down on Coniston. Incredibly peaceful, though with a few windsurfers and the occasional small pleasure boat.

Stayed down the road in Water Yeat so Coniston was the closet village with real amenities. Has all of the shops, bars and eateries but without the overcrowding touristy feel that you may experience around Winderemere.

We came to Coniston primarily to touch the lake, its a thing we do to say we have been to a body of water. The weather wasnt at its best but it in no way detracted from the enjoyment we had. The village itself was...More

Coniston Water is the 3rd largest lake in the Lake District. Approximately 5 miles long, 1/2 mile wide & 184 ft deep. The lake is situated approximately 1/2 a mile or so from the village of Coniston. A safe gentle walk. Wheelchair & pushchair friendly....More

I am sure there must be a park in Coniston itself but not sure where. It is a village with permanent residents and has its own school.
