The Coniston Village and by the Lake Treasure Trail starts at:
We have three super duper themed Clubs for your child to enjoy as part of their Treasure Trail experience.
Perfect for 4-8 year olds, the concept behind the Clubs is that your child will get a bundle of goodies to excite them about their forthcoming Trail experience, something to keep them entertained whilst travelling to and from the Trail, and something to be given on completion of the Trail as a keepsake.

Before you set off on your awesome adventure, there are a few things you need to know...
Unfortunately, due to one steep section at the start, quiet lanes without pavements, narrow paths and gravelly sections, this Trail is unsuitable for pushchair and wheelchair users.
Four-legged friends are welcome, but they will have to stand guard outside the cemetery whilst someone bravely enters to solve one clue before returning to the same gate. Dogs will need to stay on leads and be well-behaved in areas where sheep are present.
Toilets can be found at the start/finish point. Why not plan a picnic for the lakeside, which you'll be at three-quarters of the way around? There are opportunities for snacks and refreshments in the first section of the village and at the lakeside.
Parking is available at Coniston Village car park on Ruskin Avenue (LA21 8EH). If this is full when you visit, Coniston sports and social centre on Shepherds Bridge Lane (LA21 8AL) is only a five-minute walk away and signed from the A593 and B5285.
There are some fantastic events in Coniston's calendar, from the summer Coniston Country Fair to the phenomenal CONISTON CHALLENGE. Although these are great times to visit Coniston, some of the clues on this Trail may become obstructed or difficult to access. If you would like further information about event dates, please contact Coniston Visitor Information.
Why not make a day of it and visit enjoy the lake with a motor boat? Or you could even find out more about the history of the area at the fascinating Ruskin Museum. If you want to search for some treasure nearby, we have the Coniston Low Yewdale Treasure Hunt Trail available too.
