More Room Types

Waterhead Hotel sits in gardens on the edge of Coniston Water, and boasts panoramic views of the Coniston Fells, making it a great base from which to explore the local area. Take to the trails, or hop on a launch for a lake cruise.

Coniston's copper-mining past is evident in the remains of shafts and mines dotted around the area, but it also has a strong cultural heritage. Writer John Ruskin lived in Coniston, Tennyson honeymooned in the village and Turner painted the mountainous scenery. Author Arthur Ransome also holidayed as a child in Coniston, and used the area as the setting for his Swallows and Amazons book series.

The hotel is a 10-minute walk from Coniston Village, where you can visit the Ruskin Museum or see Hoathwaite Farmhouse, a 400-year-old Grade II-listed property that was recently restored by The National Trust. Tarn Hows -- part of an estate once owned by Beatrix Potter -- is a 40-minute walk away. Windermere is a 30-minute drive from the hotel.

You can begin the day with a full English breakfast at the hotel restaurant, which serves local produce and has views of the Old Man of Coniston, a fell that's over 2000 feet high. There is also a Lounge Bar that stocks local ales.
