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.

Fantastic site, so much to do, amazing location!

We stayed with our 4 daughters and our dog, this is a fantastic site, my girls loved staying in the woods, we were pitched opposite one of the three play areas so it was fairly noisy during the day but my children were at the park having a brilliant time with new friends, I like the noise of children playing but I noticed the site is a lot quieter at the top away from the play areas. The location is excellent, there is so much to do, we only used our car once during the week, there are lots of off road cycle routes direct from the site, we rode to Torver and had tea and cake at the Torver Deli, we hired a motor boat from Coniston Water which was great fun, we drive to Grizedale Forest and did GoApe, we walked up the Old Man and enjoyed stunning views, it was a fantastic week and the site was a perfect base, I can’t fault it.

Another exellent stay

Another excellent stay at this site, only let down by one or two campers not having dogs on leads. Unfortunately I had to report one family to the wardens after there dog entered our awning at the start of the week, but after that it was kept on a lead. If I had taken my dog and let him run round not on a lead I would have everybody complaining, because of the type of dog he is.

Great Site, Fantastic Location

We stayed for a week at the site recently and had a lovely stay. The location is superb for both Coniston and the lake. Facilities were spotless and staff very friendly. My only negative comment which is not the fault of the site but other guests, was that we were constantly faced with other guests walking through our pitch as a shortcut to the toilet block. Pizza were superb, fish and chips average. Highly recommend the site and we will be staying again next year.

Great site

This is a lovely site within easy walking distance of Coniston through beautiful scenery. It’s very close to the Lake’s edge and is set in rambling woods. It is a big site but it doesn’t feel like it as the pitches are set off the road in small wooded areas. It is a good site for families with small children so the noise level is a bit raised at times. The staff are extremely helpful and friendly and the tiolets/ showers are immaculate.

Peaceful and Restful

After reading other reviews we were worried this was not the site for us, how wrong we were. We had 10 peaceful and restful days. Even though we got to the site early the staff were happy to check us in (if only all sites were like this). You do need to walk around to find a good pitch as some are a lot better than others due to the ground not being level.The walk to Coniston is a must and quite easy. Our only gripe was a small motorhome which came in just before we left with two dogs that would run out barking every time we came back which upset our small dog. But that said it is a very good site with good staff
