Built before 1600 on the old Walna Scar packhorse trail to the West, the Inn provides a genuine old-fashioned Lakeland setting with stone walls, stone floor, exposed beams and a beautiful old range in the fireplace.

Ruskin Museum

"The most thought provoking in the Lakes"

There has been a Ruskin Museum in Coniston since 1901, when W.G. Collingwood, a local artist and antiquarian who had been Ruskin's secretary, set it up both as a memorial to Ruskin and a celebration of the area's heritage.

Therefore, although the museum has a Ruskin collection, there are also exhibits relating to the coppermines, slate, geology, lace, farming and Donald Campbell.
