Why We Love It

  • Waterhead Hotel's gardens slope down to the shores of Coniston Water -- "a quiet beauty that sets it apart from the more popular destinations", says Rough Guides
  • The traditional Lakeland village of Coniston is a 10-minute walk away
  • Brantwood -- the former home of writer John Ruskin -- is around five minutes' drive away


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. You can 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 around 10 minutes' 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 Cumbrian 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.
