About the neighbourhood

Charcoal House is 10 minutes’ walk to Allan Tarn, which is the peaceful tarn at the end of Coniston Water and was featured in Arthur Ransome’s book Swallows and Amazons as ‘Octopus Lagoon’.

Coniston Water is one of the most imposing and beautiful English lakes and is situated to the west of Lake Windermere.

This quiet lake is ideal for dinghy sailing, canoeing, kayaking or a leisure cruise on the beautiful steam yacht ‘Gondola’.

Charcoal House is located in an excellent area for walking, cycling and mountain biking with Coniston Old Man, Tilberthwaite and Wetherlam all on the doorstep.

At the northern end of the lake is the pretty village of Coniston which is surrounded by some of the most beautiful scenery in the Lake District National Park.
