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.

Walking in the Lakes

Coniston Park Coppice Caravan Club Site
Coniston is such a great start point for so many lovely Lake District walks. We have had just under a week at the Coniston site, our first at this location - this site has so much potential. Needless to say, the rainfall can be significant which means the facility here needs fully functional and adequate capacity for outdoor wear drying as wet clothes inside Motorhomes or caravans aren’t great..! It was disappointing therefore to find the site poorly prepared for wet wear drying and also some recognition, by site staff, that this might be a priority for members. I’m sure looking a little more closely at catering for fell walking by members might improve the sites ‘off season’ utilisation combining well with the current club offer of 50% off midweek bookings.. Just an idea CAMC..😃🙏

10 Night Stay 15 to 23 October 2021

Coniston Park Coppice Caravan Club Site
First extended trip with caravan and this site was absolutely excellent. It was very peaceful and despite having 250 pitches mainly occupied it remained quiet as very well laid out. Facilities are excellent and always very clean and the staff on site were very friendly and helpful. Wasn't the best of weather with torrential rain for several days and being amongst trees, that made the heavy rain worse. However it is the Lake District and I still enjoyed the holiday and would certainly stay on this site again. The Pizza / Chip van is also excellent. I enjoyed a pizza from there on my last night and it was great. Location is excellent as short walk from Lake and a short walk into Coniston. I enjoyed a trip on the Launch from Coniston down the Lake to Sunnybank and very pleasant walk back. TV coverage is not great but you can buy an aerial cable that plugs in on the EHU. I didn't do this as not really bothered about TV but for those who are, there its a solution. Best route to site is from A590 at Greenodd, through to Torver and then onto the Coppice. Some areas the road does narrow and you can be close to buildings and stone walls so care required on travel. Other drivers were the challenge as oncoming too fast and therefore not giving much space.

Last Minute Break

Coniston Park Coppice Caravan Club Site
We stayed at the site for the first time from the 15th to the 17th of October having only booked the Monday before having decided to take a bit of last minute break before a number of the sites shut for the winter. The reception team called us whilst we were on route to check we were okay as they knew of an accident on the motorway. A really good advert for the club and we hadn’t even arrived at that point. Check in was very quick, no issues, the team on reception gave us few suggestions for sites and we took one of these up with very nice quiet spot through the “green barrier”. Site was sloping but nothing that the ramps couldn’t cope with. The location was very quiet and little noise from round about.. The facilities were nearby and were spotlessly clean and warm which was a real blessing given it is now getting cooler. The site in general was clean, plenty of bins and the team on site were seen working hard to keep it that way. The weather was nice on the Saturday but it rained heavily on the Saturday night / Sunday morning so be prepared for lots of drips from trees. It sounded far worse than it was. We travelled to the site from the south as recommended. There are still few narrow points on route so be prepared to take your time. We will certainly be back.

Great location

Coniston Park Coppice Caravan Club Site
Spent 10 days here in October. Managed to dodge the rain except for the last day so it was a good result. The site is big and busy. I’m used to smaller more settled sites but a lot of coming and going here made it feel less settled. Our pitch was near to the Lake path which suited us but it meant a lot of foot traffic going past us. The facilities were fine with the advantage of a dog wash so much pleased with that. I’m sure there are flat pitches to be had but ours was very uneven and blocks were essential. Glad we left just before half term as a couple youngsters arrived who were racing round on motorised bikes… it looked fun for them and I’m sure they loved it but I’m not sure it was safe for those on foot. All in all well worth the visit.

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!
