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 despite the weather

Lovely natural layout with lots of nooks and crannies to ensure you are not overlooked, if that’s your preference. Site is very quiet apart from the rain and acorns from trees on roof of van, but that’s the country and the Lake District in October for you!! Lots of easy walks from site and nice pubs in comfortable walking distance. The on site takeaway pizza/fish & chip van was very good and welcome after a long walk. It’s a lovely site and we felt very safe with COVID restrictions implemented and adhered to.

First visit to a Club site

Just back from our first visit to a club site as new members. The site was perfect, upon arrival we was asked to go find a pitch which was nice as visiting other non club sites we have always been allocated a pitch and picking our own spot was really cool. All the pitches were spacious and felt really private and seculded in a woodland setting. The facilities were ace , toilets and showers spotless and show how dedicated the staff are at this site. Nothing was too much trouble to the hard working staff who helped tell us about the area and where we could go walking , cycling and find the nearest pub which is a short walk on paths right from the site. Eddie and Kath were very helpful with providing walking routes and telling us about the site and area , this is thier first season and if all staff are like them we are glad we have joined the club. We did walks to Tarn Hows, The lower slopes of the Old Man and the full ascent of the Old Man a great hike that is, and can be done from the site starting with a walk along the old railway path into Coniston and picking up the route by the Sun Hotel. We cycled from the site around the lake which on the opposite side is on very quiet roads and nothing too hilly. We really enjoyed our visit to Park Coppice and will return and if other club sites are like this one we look forward to visiting more. Thanks again to all the friendly staff especially Eddie and Kath

Motorhome virgins

First time anywhere in our Motorhome. Surprised to be Told that we had restricted our choice by booking a non awning pitch. Nice surroundings, albeit a bit gloomy. We thought Center Parcs on wheels without the commerce. Finding a pitch was daunting for first timers. Beautiful location. Easy walk to civilisation. Food facility on site for the less energetic. Facilities as expected. A pleasant couple of nights in autumn

Ideally located for Lake Coniston

We spent 5 nights here recently. A pleasant large site with adequate & clean facilities given it's size. As well as the band system you also had a key for the shower blocks which was different to other sites we have stayed on but given the close proximity to an adjoining NT campsite I guess this is a requirement as accessibility couldn't otherwise be monitored..... Most pitches are in shade or dappled shade so be aware, it is also 'hilly' but pitches are reasonably level in most places. Had a lovely 1 hour boat trip on the Sunday, recommended. Coniston village has a Spar in the petrol station, an independent Co-op + a local store with a butchers. Pubs are plentiful for food & drink.

Wet weekend in Coniston

We love this site. Its close to the lake with a short stroll from the end of the caravan site to the lake gate, its also about a 15 min stroll into Coniston itself. As expected all facilities are clean and this really is a great site for walkers. Yes there are trees and the rain on the roof maybe annoying ! but hey that's nature for ya!
