Why stay here ...

Imaginatively landscaped, the campsite is set within 63 acres of beautiful National Trust woodland. With pitches grouped in open glades and easy access to the fun attractions of Coniston Water, the site offers a scenic, peaceful base for an active holiday that will keep the whole family happy, including its own mini adventure playground for children. 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.

Pollution

Coniston Park Coppice Caravan Club Site
We've stayed here many times since the seventies - but I have to say that yesterday 15th October the pleasant tranquil atmosphere was ruined by a loud polluting leaf blower doing the seemingly essential task of blowing leaves around. Can the club explain why this is necessary on a site which probably has hundreds of trees, all of them ready to shed their leaves? I suppose the old favourite health and safety reason will be trotted out!

As described but ………..

Coniston Park Coppice Caravan Club Site
Lovely location in ancient NT woods, like Kendal site rather dark but head out of either top or bottom and your by the lake or amongst the hills. Walk to the Ship Inn pub about 25 mins, the path did get flooded so wellies or boots needed, great atmosphere and food. Walk to Coniston, gravel/tarmac solid about 40 mins. Plenty of cafes and a few pubs and shops. Obviously the Old Man of Coniston walk and many great dog walking opportunities. However, I was very disappointed with the poor bus service, with a bus stop outside the site I had expected a regular service but sadly not. Even from Coniston there was literally only 1 early in the morning with a couple return in the afternoon! For motorhomers this is no good.

Stunning location

Coniston Park Coppice Caravan Club Site
We stayed for a week in September. The site is well run. The pizza van is very good and you can pre-order during the day. Toilets etc very clean. There is a small shop on site selling all essentials including alcohol. We chose the quieter area which is through the left barrier but it is about a 20 minute walk to the lake. We used a local taxi which takes dogs (7seater) run by a nice chap called Alan. His details are available from reception but you text him rather than phone. We used him everyday to visit different places and he was always helpful /very reasonably priced. Plenty of places to eat in Coniston with the ship inn a 15 minute walk and they also do a dogs dinner. We will definitely be returning at some point, the whole area is absolutely stunning.

Campervan Visit September 2021

Coniston Park Coppice Caravan Club Site
Very friendly welcome to an amazingly quiet site, considering its size - the warden advised us on options for a quiet pitch and she was absolutely correct. Direct access on footpaths to Coniston Water from bottom of site and Coniston by following the footpath signs along the old railway line from the top of the site. Site and facilities up to normal C&MC standards.

Coniston Park Coppice Caravan Club Site
lovely location near to Coniston, the lake and the beautiful mountains,Difficult to find a pitch in a quite long motorhome and eventually found a good flat one near the playground at the bottom but a really long uphill walk to reception. Not a great site if you are not very agile. Lovely friendly wardens and very good facilities.
