Why stay here ...

Imaginatively landscaped, Coniston Park Coppice Club Site in Coniston is set in 63 acres of beautiful National Trust woodland. With pitches grouped in open glades and easy access to the fun attractions of Coniston Water, the caravan park offers a scenic, peaceful base for an active holiday that will keep the whole family happy. The site accommodates its own mini adventure playground for children and additional activities within the area include cycling, rock climbing, guided pony treks around the fells and much more.

The close proximity of Coniston Park Coppice Club Site to Coniston Water is a great bonus, for a short walk of 400 yards brings you to the lakeside launching point where you can enjoy watching or try your hand at a range of water sports such as dinghy sailing, windsurfing and canoeing. Coniston Pier, only 1.5 mile away, offers steamboat rides on the Coniston Gondola and boat hire. Several cafes and pubs serving good food are located in the village 1 mile away.

The caravan site is an excellently placed central point for exploring the whole National Park, with its dramatic combination of Lakeland and soaring fells. Needless to say, the walking is matchless and you have a good range of paths to keep you on the go. Birdwatchers will not be disappointed - expect to have your binoculars in constant use, especially in Grizedale Forest.

Great Site

Just got back from our week away at this site and it has been really lovely. The wardens are the best we have ever come across with the CC&M, they were so helpful and friendly. The facilities were kept immaculate no matter what time of day you used them.

Lovely site

Just stayed here for the week. Site nice - with several routes to walk into Coniston either through the adjoining Nat Trust farm camp site or the higher route along an old railway line - be careful crossing the road. Both routes take around 30 mins strolling. Several reviews have mentioned about dogs barking - this seems to be an issue but it's down to how good the owners are at disciplining their dog / dogs. A gent had two beautiful dogs opposite us - not allowed in caravan, kept in a cage in his 4x4 overnight & then tethered to caravan during day sat on a rug. Very well behaved & a credit to the owner who they adored when he took them for walks. Back to site review- roads are narrow to site - all roads in this area are narrow so proceed with caution as a land rover going the opposite direction in a hurry tried to smash my drivers mirror off. Busses from Coniston to Windermere & Ambleside buy a day rover ticket. Try the Bluebird cafe by lake for light bites cakes etc. Several pubs in Coniston but menus are similar. Also small CoOp & other small shops for basic necessities. Also small shop on site & chip / pizza van certain days. All in all a nice break.

Could be perfect but continuous barking dogs spoil it!

We have just returned from staying on this site and in principle it is a lovely site, the setting is ideal, if you get the right pitch, some were shaded most of the time. We got a perfect pitch, mostly sunny but some shade for the very hot weather we had. The facilities are excellent. HOWEVER, there are dogs barking the the majority of the time, and not just yappy little dogs but very big dogs. The amount of people we saw with not just one dog but 3 or 4. We even saw regularly a couple with 5 dogs! The owners never seem to stop them barking! It is such a shame because this is undoubtable one of the nicest sites we have ever stay on, with this heat we kept thinking we were in France!! If you own a dog please be considerate to others who just want peace and quiet. We would love to come back to this site, but we really don't think our nerves could stand it!!

Another excellent stay

This is our 3rd stay at Coniston and it was as excellent as always, although this time we got great weather to. Found a great pitch, enough shelter from the sun if you want it, but plenty of sun during the day. Friendly and helpful wardens, spotless facilities. Will be visiting again.

Dogs

This site is superb and undoubtably the best one we've visited. However, our trip was only spoilt by the noise made by the rather large proportion of dogs. It seemed that at approximately every 15 minute interval throughout the day, a dog would be barking somewhere and after a couple of days this became rather annoying. Now I do appreciate that members have dogs and have every right to take them on site, but my point is directed at those members who may want a bit of peace and tranquility. Be warned!
