It’s activity month on the blog!. Our latest recommendation is Coniston Boating Centre. CBC hire out Kayaks, Rowing boats, Motor boats & Sailing Dinghies for both full and part-day use. Coniston (probably more than any other area of The Lakes) is seen at it’s best from the water. The fells surrounding Coniston are magnificent, whilst the surrounding countryside is much quieter than many of the other lakes. Coniston Water is known for it’s calm waters which is why it has been the setting for so many speed record attempts of the last 50 years. In our view Coniston water is a perfect lake to introduce younger members of the family to a love of all things water related.
Recently Coniston Boating Centre has diversified and now also runs a Bike Hire Service. They can provide cycles for both adults and children, with trailers and tag-along bikes for those too young to ride. they also have a few Electric bikes for anyone who wishes for a little assistance on some of our hills. Bike hire includes helmets, bike locks & suggested cycle routes to follow.
