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.

Quiet, spacious lakeside site

Coniston Park Coppice is a large site with spacious pitches set in woodland. The layout is excellent in that there are small bays of 3 or 4 pitches rather than straight rows, offering privacy. A short walk down to the lakeside, it is ideal for walking both into Coniston and Torver. Both villages have very good pubs which serve food. The site staff are welcoming and friendly and approachable for advice or a chat. The shower/toilet block (of which there are 3 strategically placed on site) are kept spotlessly clean. There is a small shop on site which sells the usual basic necessities and also local artisan bread, bacon and sausages! Excellent location for all types of walking - be it lakeside, over the moor, or for the adventurous up The Old Man. Within easy access of the launch around the lake too. Highly recommend it. Will be back later in the year.

Fantastic stay in March 2019

This site is fantastic. Staff are very friendly and helpful. The facilities are very good. The only thing is the usual problem with the other people staying at the site. Why can’t all keep the facilities clean and tidy as they would except to find them. Every thing is supplied for us all to help each other. It only takes seconds to quickly clean after use ready for the next user.

out 1st ever caravaning adventure

We have just got back from our 1st caravan adventure (11th March) and what a place to start our experience . Staff are brilliant and always stopped for a chat , and even helped us out getting use to using the water and waste stations (caravaning virgins) The site is clean and tidy , the shower block we used were clean and had everything you need. Well now onto the area... What can we say it was stunning with great walks for us and our pooch even with driving rain/sleet and snow it took our breath away . We are sat here now booking our next trip there . Would recomend this site to all our family and friends .

Top-notch site open all year round

My wife and I visited this site for a week in March 2019. We were fortunate to have great weather and despite the trees being still bare at that time of year the site was very pretty and well-kept. The toilet blocks are well-equipped, well-heated and clean. The service points are also well-equipped and are conveniently located. Quite a busy site with comings and goings but provide late arrival bays to keep things peaceful. Short walk from the lake-side and decent footpaths in both directions to the local villages. The journey to the site following the directions in the handbook is a little challenging at times, with roads being narrow and winding in places -- inexperienced drivers should take things slow for about 6 miles until you get to the site. There is not too much to do in the local area but there are some nice walks and you can always drive to Ambleside in about 15 minutes. The village of Coniston also has a petrol station and a Spar and Co-Op for supplies. We recommend the "Our Plaice" fish shop but not the "Ship Inn". No atmosphere at the latter and low-quality frozen food. Staff were very friendly and welcoming and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

Truly dog-friendly.

Really friendly and helpful staff who are dog-friendly rather than only just dog-tolerant. Beautiful walks, even on a very stormy January weekend. Worth every penny. We will definitely visit again.
