Coniston Water is about five miles long and half a mile wide, its great for wild swimming.

🥾4.5 mile return route


A miles without stiles walk 

From the car park go back along Lake Road until you Cross the bridge and go through the business units to a double kissing gate, wide enough for wheelchairs. You follow a good path all the way too Coniston Hall Farm

Follow the path past the farm buildings and through another gate, we are following the path to head to the shoreline. 

The section beyond Coniston Hall Campsite towards Torver Jetty has been damaged by floods  but we managed to go a little further before the path was not suitable for the wheelchair. 


Cross a footbridge to Hoathwaite, then follow the path to the shoreline, this section of path is rough but with support we managed to enjoy a short route along it before turning back. The views are stunning all round.

As you can see the path becomes a little bumpy, we tried with the terrain wheelchair to go further but I was uncomfortable and awkward to push so we turned back before we reached Torver jetty
