The bustling village of Coniston sits on the banks of Coniston Water, the inspiration behind Swallows and Amazons and the set for the 2016 film of the same name. Over the years Coniston Water has proven a popular destination for holidaymakers, with Coniston Old Man majestically watching over and providing some of the best climbing opportunities within the Lake District. Coniston Water was once the venue for a world record water speed attempt by Donald Campbell, but now the Coniston Launch takes you on a more leisurely cruise where you can enjoy the stunning scenery at a laid back pace. Coniston has a number of shops, bars and restaurants inviting holidaymakers to browse, shop or relax after a days exploring in friendly surroundings.
The apartments are set in the grounds of a country guest house close to the shores of Coniston Water. Hidden away from the village in an area of peace and tranquillity the apartments are within walking distance of the village centre making them perfect for couples looking for a break away where they can hide away when they want some quality time but with restaurants and bars at hand for when you want to venture out.
