Lake District Cottages | The Coppermines Lakes Cottages

Looking for your perfect Lake District holiday cottage, from a team small enough to really know each cottage inside and out? Then you’ve found the right company.

Offering the largest collection of cottages in the Coniston area, The Coppermines Lakes Cottages are the local experts. Independent Agents, locally owned, managed and staffed since 1982. The business was originally developed from the humble restorations of the historic Coppermines buildings, situated in the Coniston Coppermines Valley by Philip Johnston and his family who still own our business today, making us one of the last independent agencies here in the Lake District. Over the years we have significantly grown to now offer over 80 hand-picked, unique self-catering Lake District cottages (many pet-friendly), all of which are situated within the UNESCO World Heritage boundary.

Whilst we have added to our collection of cottages over time, our ethos remains the same: ‘‘providing self-catering cottages of quality & character combined with exceptional personal service’’.

The Lake District is constantly voted the UK’s number one holiday destination and in 2017 was awarded UNESCO World Heritage Status. With its endless views, vibrant villages and abundance of activities on offer, it’s not hard to see why. So please browse through our site and let us inspire you in planning your next visit to this beautiful corner of the UK. Should you need any help or advice then please do not hesitate to contact a member of our friendly office team.

I can’t believe it’s been over a year since I’ve been doing these blogs and I have not yet featured one on swimming. I know. It’s ridiculous considering for quite some time I was known as Sean Conway – The Swimmer. It even says that on my Wikipedia page (If someone knows how to change that I’d be ever so grateful)

Anyway, living in Coniston and not swimming is like being French and not eating all the baguettes, and when it comes to dipping your toes into the often-icy water there is one particular swim that I love the most. I call it the Swallows and Amazons Swim.
