About this location

The Duddon Valley region

Impressive mountains, open fells and clear-water lakes, the Lake District has it all. From walking in the mountains to exhilarating watersports or just a gentle cruise on a steam-powered yacht, Cumbria is the perfect holiday destination.


Nestling at the head of Coniston Water, the pretty village of Coniston is surrounded by some of the most beautiful scenery in the Lake District National Park and makes a superb base for touring, with Hawkshead, Ambleside and Windermere just a short drive away. Superb walking, mountain biking and climbing is available locally on Coniston Old Man and Wetherlam, and the lovely woodland trails at Grizedale Forest. For water sports enthusiasts the quiet lake is ideal for dinghy sailing and canoeing, whilst the less active can enjoy a leisure cruise on the beautiful steam yacht ‘Gondola'.

"Could be excellent but needs maintenance and deep clean"

This house can accommodate a large party and has a great location by Lake Coniston. It has good size rooms and is close to the delightful town of Coniston. The thing that lets it down is that it is p… More

"Brilliant big getting-together house."

A large house with lots of very comfortable bedrooms and lots of bathrooms too. It's not often you find a house to sleep so many in proper bedrooms, rather than dorms. Not luxurious, but really c… More
