This CL is HOT Property

We have just returned home after a two week stay at Beckthwaite and miss the stunning scenery, peace and views already. We were welcomed by Peter Dixon as we arrived and I very soon discovered he and I shared a long service history with the Fire Service, felt at home in a heartbeat. Peter and Margaret are lovely people and the site is beautifully maintained, Indeed Peter builds his own dry stone boundary walls. The site, as other reviews have indicated, is ideally located for Coniston Village with its own private foot bridge across the beck and private road up into the village. All the attractions associated with the Lake District are within easy reach and, if you have four wheels and the bottle, I would encourage you to take the Hardknott Pass to the Eskdale & Ravenglass Railway, it's exhillirating to say the least. I could go on and on about this gem of a CL but, I'm sure you can pick up on my enthusiasm, needless to say we can't wait for a return visit.

Perfect Village location

After many years of visiting the area and coveting the location of this CL we have finally paid a visit! We stayed for 5 nights over New Year and although the site was full it was peaceful (all apart from a very loud TV from the Motorhome next door, but they weren't there long!), and very well kept. I used the shower/loo facilities once during our stay and although spotlessly clean there is no heating and you only get 4 minutes hot water for your 50p, so it was just easier to use the facilities in the van after that, but I'm sure they'll be much more user friendly in the summer. The CL is in a perfect location for the village with everything in walking distance and there is direct access to some lovely walks, down towards the lake and up into the fells. In fact, we loved it so much we have decided to spend Christmas there this year!

Excellent location for Southern Lake District

We have just recently concluded a 4 day stay on this site. It was an excellent base from which to explore the Southern Lake District. Once onsite you are only 5 minutes walk from the centre of Coniston and around 10 minutes down to the lake itself, The bus stop is also around 5 minutes away putting both Windermete and Grasmere within reach if you prefer not to drive once parked up. The site is well maintained and the toilets and shower were kept topped up with loo rolls and clean. Peter and his wife gave us a friendly welcome and we would certainly come again. Given the excellent location we felt it was good value.

Great Location

Just had 3 nights on this little gem of a CL. Location is everything, and this place is slap bang in the middle of Coniston Village, and a 5 minute walk to the water. Owners very friendly, and always there to answer any questions. The surrounding area delivers everything you would want from The Lake District. Just one gripe, but it's regarding other site users, and not the site itself. We were onsite during the recent World Cup, and one of the other campers was a bit offish because we were supporting our country!

Coniston lake

Easy to find with ok access. Very central to town and Coniston lake both within a 5 min walk. Friendly owners who make you welcome. Two basic but clean toilets one with shower at 50p a go. Only complaint was when I watched the owner wash out the toilet brushes under the drinking water tap ?
