Getting There & Away

Bus 505 runs to Windermere (£9.80, hourly every day) via Hawkshead and Ambleside. A couple of buses a day go on to Kendal. Note that for most bus journeys, it's better value to buy a 24-hour Central Lakes Dayrider ticket instead.

The Coniston Bus-and-Boat ticket (adult/child £19/8.30) includes return bus travel on the 505, plus a trip on the launch and entry to Brantwood.
