You might be interested in the Financial Section on this site. Banks, like Building Societies, often have a restricted range of services - and are notoriously conservative when investing your money. This usually results in very low rates of return. Our financial section covers other Financial Institutions, Mortgages, Investment Consultants, Credit & Finance Companies - and Crowd Funding!

Coniston Medical Practice

Wraydale House, Coniston LA21 8ER, UK – 015394 41205

Incredible. This is an honest review and I can confidently say that I and my girlfriend separately had the best NHS experience we’ve had so far with this surgery. Very efficient, friendly and proactive health advice.

Very professional doctors who know exactly what they're talking about. Very friendly and caring.

NHS Direct is now NHS 24. Just dial 111 to speak to a professional or click the link below for there self help website. Lots of really useful info but keep clear of heart surgery! If in doubt ask your GP or call 111. Good luck.

Lovely here , also went to the Ruskin Meseum and St Andrews church

Lovely rural church, with quite a good organ!

YHA Coniston Coppermines

Coniston Coppermines, Coniston LA21 8HP, UK – 0345 371 9630

Great, small hostel in an amazing location. The two members of staff were very friendly and worked incredibly hard. Clean and tidy, with good self catering facilities. Perfect spot for exploring The Old Man of Coniston. The track to the hostel isn't very good and is steep in places, but that's expected for a remote retreat.

Little out of the way, which I felt was a good thing. Terraced house. Great housing for groups of 20ish

YHA Coniston Holly How

Holly How, Far End, Coniston LA21 8DD, UK – 0345 371 9511

A warm and friendly welcome. Coniston Holly How is family run and Glen the manager really shows that it is a labour of love running the hostel. The rooms were comfortable and spacious. They weren't trying to shove too many beds in each room like they do at other YHA's. The location is incredibly convenient. It is walking distance from a lot of things. Food is very good too. I would give it six stars if I could.

Great space to use for our staff training accommodation. Would definitely stay again

Petrol priced in line with nearby establishments. Attached shop was a little small but had enough options for a dinner.

There is a post office in here to get free cash out which i dont think you will find anywhere else in Coniston. Good opening hours for the countryside.

Coniston Water

Coniston Water

One of my favourite places in the lakes. Great walks for every level. And water activity from kyacking to open water swimming. Pubs and food are faultless. Oslo plenty of camping sites in and around the village. Let's not forget the history behind the mines and Donald Campbell. With the bluebird.

The 3rd largest lake in Cumbria. Graveyard of Donald Campbell from 1967 until 2001. This lake has it's history. A visit from the Grand Tour trio in 2017, in the Bond bug. Other than the history, this majestic lake is certainly worth a visit, it is beautiful as it is vast.

Church House Inn

Main Road, Torver, Coniston LA21 8AZ, UK – 015394 49159

We stayed there for 7 nights. Very large and comfortable family room (room number 7). A bit noisy in the early morning, because of the traffic. Newly decorated, new bathroom. Cleaned every day. Good breakfast, but served only from 08:30, so if you leave early, you will have to skip it. Very helpful and kind staff. Very good restaurant and bar in the evenings.

Made to feel very welcome. Warm and comfortable, a few different beers on and really helpful lady (think landlady) behind the bar. Missed food service after a long walk, but was a good spot to grab a couple of beers to wind down.

Give and get free stuff. Here you will find lots of items that people are willing to give away, for FREE! This is instead of taking them to a local landfill site. The aim of this site is to reduce the amount of waste that goes to landfill (20.9 million tonnes of it last year in the UK) and recycling is great news for the environment.
We all know that we need to recycle more - and this is a great way of doing it.

Local Restaurants & Places to Eat around Torver

Steam Bistro

Esk Villa, Tilberthwaite Avenue, Coniston LA21 8ED, UK – 015394 41928

We started going when they had a pop up in a local Coniston cafe. Excellent food, excellent service and lovey decor. I like that it is BYO bottle as it means you don't need to buy over priced wine! Can't recommend it enough. Always very friendly and welcoming. Make sure you book in advance.

Fantastic setting, candle kit and quirky. One of the best meals i have ever had the pleasure to eat (slow cooked beef) attentive staff and not stupidly expansive. Can't recommend this place enough.

Sara's Indian

4 Yewdale Rd, Coniston LA21 8DU, UK – 015394 41912

Nice place to eat. Very welcoming when our other plans fell through, due to weather change and fading sunlight. If you are heading here, bring your own bottle. (Shop across road sells all you could want to drink, alcoholic). Also only cash so bars near by will offer cash back from a debit card without purchase. Overall friendly and decent. If in area again would be hard not to go back.

Good restaurant, and probably the best choice in the town for a vegetarian, as they have plenty of suitable choices available. The food is good, and very filling; I actually left the last of our naan bread which is unusual for me! They aren't licenced to sell alcohol but are happy for you to bring your own, and have plenty of soft drinks available.

The Terrace Coffee House and Restaurant

Coach House, East of Lake, Coniston LA21 8AD, UK – 015394 49025

Fine but had to wait a while as they'd forgotten about our drinks order.

Get there early because it gets busy. Great place
