Lane Head is an exceptional period property situated on the eastern shores of Coniston Water. With an array of activities on offer for all guests, Lane Head is a Lake District home like no other. A fantastic and 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.

Now lovingly refurbished to offer its guests simple, spacious, comfortable and practical accommodation, this magnificent home can adequately sleep up to 35 within eight roomy en suite bedrooms, the majority of which enjoy breath-taking lake and mountain views.

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. Outdoor enthusiasts will revel in endless water based activities available on Coniston Water and 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.

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.

Culture lovers will find solace in the nearby Brantwood House, the historic home of John Ruskin which now encompasses a museum, delightful gardens and vibrant arts scene. Lane Head’s setting alone should be enough to inspire any visitor and allow creative juices to flow, whether by painting the surrounding landscape as Collingwood did many years ago, or enjoying blissful yoga classes on the front lawn.

Working with local company Adventure 21 we are able to offer fantastic, flexible, educational and active stays in the heart of England’s adventure capital. Tailor make your stay to suit your group’s wants and needs.
