Coniston Hall is a former house on the west bank of Coniston Water in the English Lake District. It is recorded in the National Heritage List for England as a designated Grade II* listed building.[1]

The house dates from the late 16th century, or possibly earlier. It is built in stone rubble with a slate roof. Part of it is now ruined, part is used as a farmhouse, and another part is used by a sailing club.[1]

The hall is owned by the National Trust, but is not open to the public.[1] The surrounding area is used as a camping site.[2] A privy about 13 metres (43 ft) to the south of the hall is listed at Grade II.[3]
