Leased from the National Trust, Monk Coniston Country House has an enviable location on the shores of Coniston Water. Here you can relax and admire the magnificent mountain views, or immerse yourself into the scenery with our guided and self-guided walks.
Complete with minstrels’ gallery and ornate public rooms, Monk Coniston is set in eight acres of beauty. Stay in the estate owned by Beatrix Potter, and eventually acquired by the National Trust, and experience the surroundings that inspired so many amazing stories.
Monk Coniston has 32 beautiful bedrooms, furnished with relaxation and a good night’s sleep in mind. After your day’s adventures, you can settle down to wonderful views of surrounding fells and the stunning Coniston Water.
