Create your own adventure here in the breath-taking Lake District National Park, the Adventure Capital of the UK.
A landscape of majestic mountains, deep valleys, powerful rivers and vast lakes. The Lake District offers all those actively seeking adventure a plethora of truly wild opportunities.
Scale England’s highest mountain, swim, canoe or paddle across our inviting lakes, challenge yourself on cycling trails through enchanting forests, scramble and cling onto our Lakeland rock or take in a birds eye view as you glide amongst the birds.
We are lucky enough to be based in the heart of Coniston village, just a stone’s throw from Coniston Water and the impressive bulk of the Old Man of Coniston. Whether or not you’ve read Arthur Ransome’s books about the Swallows & Amazons, any time spent exploring our neck of the woods will most certainly bring out the adventurous child in you! So join us and find your own adventure in this simply stunning environment.
We are true believers that by ‘switching off’ modern technology you really do gain a better connection with this big beautiful world, especially when exploring. However if you do manage to document your epic moments here in the Lakes remember to share them with us, simply use the hashtag #AdventureCoppermines across your favourite social media channels!
Below you will find various links designed to inspire and also all our cottages which offer cycle storage!
Please note that Lane Head, Nr. Coniston (sleeping up to 35) also offers bespoke activity packages!
