A gem of a guest house set in the Lake District village of Coniston
Blue Bird Lodge - Guest House and Self Catering Apartments Coniston
This beautifully placed hideaway truly enjoys the very best of both worlds; strolling distance from bustling Coniston village centre and yet right by the shores of Coniston Water at Waterhead, set in absolute peace and quiet commanding breathtaking views of the dramatic surrounding mountains including Coniston Old Man.
This beautiful place offers a fantastic base from which to explore this vibrant village, the magic of Coniston Water and also the wider Lake District.
Don't forget the delightful gardens, perfect for lazy days and al-fresco life.
Bluebird Lodge takes you slightly away from the hustle and bustle of Bowness and Lake Windermere, to a wilder landscape full of adventure. Coniston
Water is famous for its part in Arthur Ransome's Swallows and Amazons, with Peel Island being the setting for the 'Wild Cat Island' featured in the story. The lake is also known for Donald Campbell's water speed record attempt in 'Bluebird'.
But the real magic comes from the breathtaking surroundings; dramatic fells including Coniston Old Man, wild woodlands and wonderful Lake District walks. You'll have access to no end of stunning routes, from leisurely strolls to challenging ascents.
There are lovely tea rooms, cafes and traditional Lakeland pubs in Coniston village, and the Black Bull Inn is well worth a visit for its award-winning brewery the Coniston Brewing Co.
For a cultured day out, head to Brantwood historic house - an impressive residence overlooking the lake, once home to John Ruskin the famous artist, writer and creative thinker. You'll find a range of events on offer, such as talks, concerts, craft workshops and even outdoor theatre.
