This is rerally about the wooded area on the East side of Coniston Lake.
The water can be cool but it is fine, several places to enter the water comfortably but not suitable for diving in most places. It is very pleasant on a hot day.

The bottom drops away quickly in most of the area so not a place for weak swimmers. The southern bit is very popular with families but a few minutes walk leads to a quieter bit on the headland. People have been known to skinny dip there or at other places along the road to the north.

The parking on the road is limited and care needs to be taken not to double park.
