Lane Head

Standing in an elevated position overlooking Coniston Water, the village and the dramatic fells beyond, Lane Head is superbly situated for those who wish to explore the delights of the local area.


An exceptional period property situated on the eastern shores of Coniston Water. Historically this impressive home was once owned by William Collingwood, secretary to John Ruskin and a renowned artist in his own right. Furthermore it is believed that Arthur Ransome, a close friend of Collingwood and author of the world famous Swallows & Amazons, spent much time at Lane Head and taught Collingwood's grandchildren to sail on the lake.

Now lovingly refurbished to offer its guests simple, spacious, comfortable & practical accommodation, this magnificent home can adequately sleep up to 35 within eight roomy bedrooms, the majority of which enjoy breath-taking lake and mountain views. With an array of activities on offer for all guests, Lane Head is a Lake District home like no other. A fantastic & unique base to come together and enjoy outdoor education courses, activities, celebrations and much more. Perfect for corporate and independent groups, friends and families alike.

Outdoor enthusiasts will revel in endless water based activities available on Coniston Water & within the Coppermines Valley whilst cyclists both road and mountain, will relish the varied routes available straight from the front door, including Grizedale Forest and its renowned North Face trail.
