Coniston Private Waterfront

Our very own Hidden Gem, a private lake front on the beautiful Coniston water. The perfect spot to launch your canoe, take a refreshing dip or simply soak up the views from the quiet lake shore.

Just 14 miles from Langdale on the southern end of Coniston water, access is down a winding tree lined track. The gate to the shore side is kept locked and access is only available to Langdale guests, so there’s never issues with over-crowding from the public, even on the sunniest day.

There’s fantastic panoramic views from the middle of the Lake, the Old Man of Coniston takes centre stage but our Langdale Pikes can also be seen in the distance if you look North

If you’re an experienced wild swimmer have a canoe or kayaks then you should make the trip over to ‘Wildcat Island’. Made famous by Arthur Ransome’s Swallows and Amazon, it’s a magical place to explore and a great picnic spot.

 

Not far beyond this island there’s the large Parkmoor Jetty, there’s some lovely forest walks from here and it’s also a great place to watch people launching sail boats. The Coniston Steam Yacht Gondola also sometimes stops here.

You don’t need to have a boat or wetsuit to enjoy our Lake frontage. Stick to the shallows around the shoreline where the waters warmer, especially in late August and September. Or if you don’t fancy getting wet at all, there’s plenty of room on land to kick back and relax.

 

Why not light a camp fire on the shingle beach and toast some marshmallows as the sun goes down… Bliss.

Directions to our secret, lake side spot are available on request from Reception.
