Travel Tips for Coniston
When you first enter Conniston one of the first things you should do is visit the tourist information office....this will be your best source of information. Inside there are hundreds of leaflets advertising events and places to visit in and around the area. The staff are very helpfull and not on a hard sell. When we visited this office the staff could see that we was looking for information on a nearby camp site........they asked if they could help...and they did.............they even made a telephone call for us to check availability.....10 out of 10 for the staff at this office.
You will also find that there isn`t a lot of parking space in Conniston and the main car park is actually at the tourist information office.....you have to pay to park but it is very convieneant.
Coniston has a well known Brewery...had to take this for Richie ;-) Its located behind the Black Bull Inn. Its fabled Bluebird Bitter, won Champion Beer of Britain 1998 at the great British Beer Festival.
The Brewer is built on the site of an old pig stye, now produces 20 barrels per week and supplies many outlets in the Lake District.
Coniston Water - Lake District
"Coniston Water - Lake District"
We only quickly stopped by the lake at Coniston on our way from Hilltop. There is a lot of lovely scenery here by the lake and many people keep their boats here to go sailing. There is also a restaurant by the lake which offers great views.
Conniston was the area that we stayed on our little holiday. We had the intentions of just using this small village as a base for maybe one night then after move more north. As it happened we stayed there the whole time. Conniston is ideally situated for travelling around the Lake District........it is large enough to use as a base but not too big to be overv crowded with tourism.
I am going to put a link on here to my Lake District Pages...all the places listed on them was visited using Conniston as a starting and finishing point, none of the trips away from Conniston was too long driving.
