It is possible to park in the village and walk to the lake or drive down practically to the waters edge. The walk around some of the lake is not suitable for all but worth a wander for the more able.

Loved our holiday in Coniston and the lake was beautiful. It is much quieter in November and at times we felt we had it to ourselves.

We were staying on a caravan site near the lake .One morning we walked to the lake edge and just wandered in the sunshine .What a lovely peaceful place to be no wonder it's so popular.

It is a number of years since we were last here. It has improved greatly with walks to the lake and round. In many cases you are separated from the road. There are a number of good places to stay and/or eat in Coniston itself.

The normally tranquil lake is transformed into a measured km or mile to allow various watercraft to attempt to break water speed records. A nice way to spend the day .

Absolutely beautiful, boat trips and canoes from the jetty. Well worth a visit. You can walk from there along the path and Lane that leads you to Coniston, the walk by Bluebird cafe takes you to Torver.

I am sure there must be a park in Coniston itself but not sure where. It is a village with permanent residents and has its own school.
