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.

December Visit

Stayed here for just one night but originally booked for 3 due to a family illness. Due to it being winter half of the site was closed plus torrential rain did not help us. The site is away from the village centre and the roads leading to the site can be narrow with a lot of tight bends for the inexperienced driver. The warden who checked us in was very friendly, chatty and understanding.

Peaceful and Tranquil Park Coppice Coniston

Arrived Sunday afternoon and received a lovely warm welcome from the wardens. Enjoyed the peace and tranquility the site offered with added bonus of visiting Deer each morning grazing in the grounds. Easy walks to local pubs which served great food and beer, highly recommend The Black Bull serves food all day every day of the week. Weather held up for the week only had one morning of rain so enjoyed visits to Windermere, Ambleside, Hawkshead and Kendal supporting local businesses. The wardens work really hard and site was immaculate at all times and always took time out to say hello and engage in conversations with visitors. Thank you for a lovely week away keep up the good work!

What a fantastic site

I love the Lake District and normally stay around Ullswater as it's stunning and generally much quieter than Windermere. I always fancied the idea of trying Coniston area and was delighted to find this site through the club. The added bonus of half price during week nights! I can't fault the place. Very friendly greeting when I arrived, large site with loads of hard standing all nestled in various terraces in and amongst the trees. Was told I could pretty much go where I wanted except where the site was cordoned off (due to low season). Facilities were spotless and the showers were particularly good with large changing area so you don't get your clothes wet. Beautiful location only short distance from Coniston village which can be accessed via various footpaths. Visited a couple of the local hostelries which were very welcoming and had nice selection of beers to sample. I will definitely be going again, preferably out of season as I love the peace and quiet, although I expect it will be glorious in the spring when all the trees are green.
