June 2022

The Church House Inn
The two mid week nights I spent at this CL were very pleasant. A nice welcome by the proprietor, Mark. All 5 pitches were occupied plus the pod on site but very quiet campers and so no late night noise. The facilities on site ticked the boxes for me, sunny pitch, nice hot shower and the toilet paper included. As previously mentioned perfect site for accessing many good walking routes, I particularly enjoyed Torver Common.

Mid December visit

The Church House Inn
Just back from 3 peaceful nights on this CL. Great access to the Fells and The Old Man Of Coniston, and along the disused railway track walk to Coniston village and lake. Very friendly helpful owner. Large hot shower with hot ladder towel rail and two toilets. We were the only visitors during our stay so can’t comment on whether the facilities would be stretched when the site is full. We weren’t troubled by road noise at all , might have been the howling gales outside! Minimal light pollution so great star lit skies. We would imagine this is a quieter place than the busier sites in Coniston during the summer. For info there’s a new luxury pod with hot tub on the site which looks great!

Noisy spot

The Church House Inn
Great location for walking to the lake and on to fells. Easy access off the road and through the carpark to a field with hard standings raised up from the grass which dictated which direction we pitched the caravan and put the awning, couldn’t get either level. The public footpath running along the site allows users to see into the site and our caravan and was noisy at times. The track through the site leads to another field for campervans, this was closed during our stay. There is regular traffic noise from the roads and dogs barking somewhere so it isn’t a peaceful site. The toilet and waste emptying point was almost full to overflowing, making emptying the toilet even more unpleasant, it was drained during our visit. There are 2 toilets and 1 shower next to the pub which were shared between the CL and any campervans ( 5 at one point )pitched in the carpark during our stay. I assume the motor homes in the additional field will also use the facilities, they are not for exclusive use of the CL as advertised. Friendly host who is helpful and working hard on his business almost single handedly, a pod is currently being built on the CL. £20 a night and £25 at weekends ( Sunday night is a weekend) isn’t competitive with the other local sites and is far too high for what’s on offer.

Enjoyed our stay

The Church House Inn
Pleasant stay and location. Good and easy dog walking from site and into Coniston. Owner very helpful and gave us sole use of a fridge as ours not working. Shame pub not open but another across the road.

Overpriced

The Church House Inn
Nice spot good path into coniston good pub over the road, the church house in is closed and no sign of opening, excellent base for walking. But at £20 a night mid week it is overpriced

Love our motorhome
