If you like speed, and want to watch dedicated drivers and support teams trying to break national and world records, this is the place to be in the first week of November.

Had a lovely 1 hour lake cruise on the Coniston launch at £10.50 per person (not the NT steam launch which was very expensive at £21 per person for roughly the same trip!) 2 young girls in charge of piloting the boat and giving us a commentary about the lake ... Very competent friendly and knowledgeable. Wonderful views and lovely... More

We walked around the lake on a blustery day. Lovely views and easy walking. There are boats and hikes for hire.

Had a walk around, very quaint, loads of pubs and all of them had people drinking and eating there, was a lovely day so some were able to sit outside. Bought a delicious leek and Stilton quiche from one of the local pie... More

We had a few hours off work and made the most of the chance to visit the Lake District, and went to Coniston for a change - absolutely beautiful, peaceful, unspoilt and not commercialised. Went to the far north of the Lake and found a car park adjacent . A lovely shore and wished we had taken chairs and a... More

We wanted to go out on the lake and decided to hire a "drive yourself" battery motor boat. We hired it for an hour which cost us £20. We were given safety instructions and life jackets (which we were instructed to keep on during the whole trip) and set off on our adventure. The scenery was breathtaking and once in... More

We phoned the main office to find out if we could use the ferry to cross back over the lake with bikes. She said it depended on the boat driver, and best thing was to ask when it arrived. When the boat arrived we were told no bikes even though the boat was virtually empty. It is noted as a... More

We went to Conisten water as a family group of 10 people, ages ranging from 12-70. It was a lovely day. After having a nice little walk some of the group continued and walked over lovely hills and countryside. 7 of us went in kyaks on the lake. When we arrived they only had double kyaks left. They were £25... More
