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.

Second visit just as good as the first

This is the second time we have visited the park and found it just as we remembered. we stayed over the half term week as we wanted to see the power boats, and although it was full and very busy with lots of happy children it still felt quiet and peaceful. The site location is ideal for walking into Coniston with the dogs, where most of the pubs allow the dogs in, and with gorgeous walks around the lake too. We were also ideally located to watch the power boats which whizzed past at breakneck speeds. We took our chairs down to the lake and sat and watched for most of the days. Although we don't make full use of the facilities when we do they are spotlessly clean. The site staff are very friendly and helpful, welcoming us in their Halloween costumes!! There is a pizza and fish and chip bar based in the entrance to the site which is useful and delicious. One of the big attractions of this site is that we hardly ever have to get the car out.

Superb site

Third time we have stayed here and we have enjoyed every minute. Our five nights last week were during a half term period and I was glad I booked well in advance as the site was full on Sunday and Monday nights! We enjoyed a couple of days watching the Power boats attempting several speed records, a walk all the way round Coniston and just one day using the car to go to Keswick. This site is ideal for us because we can walk, cycle or just enjoy the peace of the site. Tarn Hows is an easy walk or cycle ride and makes a pleasant day out without the car. The lovely staff made a lot of effort to entertain children (and us actually) by dressing up for the day on Wednesday and hosting a halloween event in the evening. As with all the club sites we have visited, the facilities blocks are outstanding - spotlessly clean, warm and well provisioned. Looking forward to our next visit! First time we have experienced a full site because we usually holiday outside of school holiday periods, but we were very impressed how quiet and spacious it still felt. The site is huge (262 pitches I think) but so well broken up that you are only really aware of the two or three vans nearby. Beware of children on bicycles when driving up the hill on a bend - we had a very close miss with a child wizzing down the main hill, thankfully we were abiding by the 5mph rule and were therefore able to stop instantly and the child managed to avoid colliding into the front of our car (just) and potentially suffering serious injury - parents with young children please take some time to explain this danger!

Coniston with all its history and character is a bit special!

A lovely site well situated for Coniston Water which can be accessed straight out of the site. The site is huge and so the pitches tend to be generous and although almost full, never felt crowded. The adjacent bridleway walks us into Coniston village in about twenty minutes. Plenty of pubs and cafes. A fair selection of retail shops. There was a water sport event taking place timing jet skis and motor boats, really exciting and noisy! We did not want to walk the high peaks so we walked to Hawkshead a really nice walk to a beautiful village. Tarn Hows is also a walk away and well worth visiting. The Lake District is always worth a visit, Coniston with all its history and character is a bit special, have a great visit.

Stunning site!

This is a beautiful wooded site. Pitches are arranged in small groups which makes it feel very secluded. (If you don't like shade and trees then don't stay here) The on site shop is well stocked, and the Pizza van on Saturday night was very welcome! Staff were lovely (as expected from CMC) Shower blocks and facilities beautifully clean. I really can't fault the site. An easy walk into Coniston village meant we could leave our Camper on site and really enjoy a day with no worries about parking. Perfectly located for access to the Lakes and the Peaks. We enjoyed walks in the Langdale Valley, as well as a trip to Windermere. So many things to see and do that I can guarantee we will be returning.

Great Site!

Stayed on site for 8 nights last week and we had a great time! The site staff were very helpful on arrival and although we didn't need any assistance, I'm sure they would have been more than obliging. The pitches all seem to be a good size, but slope usually in at least two directions. It's not a problem but make sure you have levelling blocks, you will need them! The facilities are excellent and access to the lake is very easy via a track. There are sheep in the adjacent fields though so dogs really do need to be kept on leads, for their own safety as well as for the sheeps. TV signal was atrocious at times, even when hooked up to the plug on the mains post. I guess it's just the area and being in a wood! Great site and would definitely stay there again. Oh, the roads in and out of the village are tight and you do get coaches as well as local traffic, including tractors. Good fun but a bit scary at times!
