The Coniston Hotel Country Estate & Spa is a true Yorkshire destination hotel, nestled on a 1400-acre estate in the heart of the Dales. Privately owned, the Bannister family and their team strive to deliver exceptional service – the finest example of a proud independently-owned hotel

The Coniston boasts 71 contemporary bedrooms, many enjoying spectacular views, whether that’s the rolling hills of the surrounding Dales or the calming waters of the majestic lake. And with a selection of bedrooms that are dog friendly, you can also bring all the family!

For those looking for an extended stay, you can enjoy home from home luxury in one of the idyllic holiday cottages on the cusp of the Coniston estate. Luxury self-catering accommodation for up to 10 people with private hot tub, this is an ideal choice whether you’re looking for a romantic getaway, a family break or just a tranquil holiday away from it all. What’s more, because all properties are close to the main grounds, you have all the facilities at the Coniston Hotel Country Estate & Spa on your doorstep.

Once you arrive, you’ll be spoilt for choice on how to spend your time with a host of country pursuits – take the wheel with a Coniston 4×4 off-road experience and discover what it’s like to really test a vehicle to the limits. Children aged 10 and upwards can also get involved on the junior driving course, the perfect starter driving experience! Or why not take your aim and fire with clay pigeon shooting, archery or air rifles at the Coniston Shooting Ground – one of the best grounds in the country. For a more tranquil experience, while away the hours fishing on the Coniston lake or embarking on one of the many walks, exploring the stunning countryside.

The end of the day will undoubtedly see you relaxing and recharging your batteries at the Coniston Spa. A five-bubble facility as voted by the Good Spa Guide, you’ll be pushed to find a better vantage point than the stunning infinity pool overlooking the Coniston Estate. Other facilities include a 15-metre indoor pool, Himalayan salt sauna, aromatherapy steam room, Finnish sauna, ice fountain and bubble pool.

Partnering with Aromatherapy Associates and the exclusive Natura Bisse, luxurious and indulgent, result driven treatments can really crown your experience. And if you need a little ‘pick me up’ the Nourish brasserie offers perfect light bites and refreshment.

The Coniston Hotel Country Estate & Spa is proud to offer dining with a difference. With two main restaurants from which to choose, set in the stunning backdrop of the idyllic Yorkshire Dales, there is something to suit all tastes. From informal, hearty foods, to more decadent dishes, you’ll be sure to find a favourite.

The two-AA restaurant, Macleod’s, exudes elegance with its fine dining coupled with accompanying wines. Offering locally sourced, fresh and seasonal dishes, the chefs are always researching the latest trends and ingredients. With its exposed beams and stone walls Macleod’s offers a light, airy and welcoming feel, whilst keeping its charming original features.

For the more informal option, the Huntsman’s Lodge brasserie offers magnificent views of the lake and the surrounding countryside – from the terrace to enjoy on fine days, and a roaring open fire to keep you warm on the not so fine, there really is no better place to be, come rain or shine.

‘God’s Own Country’ really is one of the most stunning destinations and it would be remiss not to explore the surrounding tourist attractions and beauty spots throughout your staycation – from Malhamdale, Three Peaks, Ribblehead Viaduct to Fountains Abbey, you really will be spoilt for choice on how to spend your time. One thing’s for sure, you’ll be planning your next visit before you leave.
