YHA Coniston Coppermines is perfect for mountain lovers looking for great climbing holidays. Beautifully located, this hostel offers a 500ft head start on the ascent of the Old Man of Coniston. If you’re up for the challenge, scale the Old Man to enjoy incredible views from the summit. On a clear day it’s possible to see much of the southern Lake District, Morecambe Bay, Blackpool Tower and even out to the Isle of Man.
There are splendid walks and views to enjoy from this rural retreat and it's a great base for outdoor activity breaks and walking holidays. There's lots of culture here too with the National Trust's steam-powered Victorian yacht touring Coniston Water, Brantwood - historic home of artist John Ruskin, plus site-specific sculpture trails in Grizedale Forest nearby.
