Landscape of fell, meadow and woodland around Coniston Water
Coniston covers a large area of some of the Lake District's most scenic woodland, water and fells.
One of many lovely places is the iconic Tarn Hows beauty spot, with its magnificent mountain views. The readily accessible Blea Tarn in Little Langdale also has superb views and fine walking.
Monk Coniston Hall was once home to James Garth Marshall, the Victorian creator of Tarn Hows. Explore the old walled garden and grounds famed for their exotic conifer.
Spring is of course one of the nicest times to visit the Lake District but it's also a busy time for our local farmers as the sheep are lambing. Please keep your dog on a tight lead near sheep so as not to worry or harm ewes and lambs. We appreciate your co-operation in the lambing season.
