The Coniston Hotel, Country Estate and Spa
The Coniston has that rare mix of exquisite food, stunning location and family values. The Bannister family has owned the estate for 51 years and has gradually converted the original farm shop into a 71-bedroom, four-star hotel. Macleod’s, the hotel’s flagship restaurant, is a light and airy dining space at the heart of the hotel. It recently won the prestigious Hotel Restaurant of the Year accolade at the Yorkshire Evening Post Oliver Awards 2017. There are plenty of options on the seasonal à la carte menu, which focuses on local produce and game sourced from the estate. The Huntsman’s Lodge offers a more relaxed, informal dining experience, with a roaring fire centrepiece, and serves brunch, lunch, afternoon tea and dinner. With a stunning floor-to-ceiling glass window, the restaurant boasts stunning panoramic views over the 24-acre lake and surrounding rolling Dales.
