Great site for dog walking, with an ace pub over the road

The Church House Inn
This is a small, peaceful site with footpaths to Coniston, down to Coniston Water and up to Old Man of Coniston. The pub across the road is sensational for those times that you don't want to cook. Coniston is a lovely walk away, with a local butcher at the back of the supermarket, more pubs, cafes. As a dog owner who likes to be able to park up for the week and explore without moving the van, this site was lovely. Also has great Vodafone 4G

9 days in October 2022 - great area to visit

The Church House Inn
This compact CL is at the back of a now-closed pub on the edge of Torver – a 10 minute drive south from Coniston. The pitches are all hardstanding with grass alongside and EHUs within 25m. The old pub car park has a few spaces for larger motorhomes. The owner, Mark, is welcoming and friendly and can provide good information about the locality. There is a bus stop for a service to Coniston just outside the entrance, but only 3 buses per day. Buses run from Coniston to Windermere and Ambleside where other services can be reached. Mark provides WiFi but as in many rural areas the signal is currently quite weak and unreliable. We found that a WiFi booster improved the signal strength considerably, but not the reliability. The TV signal was good - note that if you have a directional aerial it must be in a vertical position. This is an excellent location for visiting the southern Lake District area – several lakes, gardens worth visiting, Beatrix Potter locations, a steam railway, challenging passes and a multitude of excellent walking trails. Numerous good pubs and cafes. Supermarkets can be found in Windermere and Ulverston.

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!
