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.

Lovely stay at Coppice

We really loved this site short walk down to the lake bit further into Coniston. Friendly staff very helpful. Facilities very clean. Felt very safe throughout. We heard Owls at night its situation in amongst the trees provide a peaceful and secluded pitch. Definitely our favourite so far.

Lovely site but needed longer!

We only live 25 minutes from the site but wanted to get the van out post covid lockdown. We run a guesthouse and don't get much time off so we took a couple of friends for paddle boarding and a night away. We've stayed a few times here as it's one of our favourite sites. It feels really wild amongst the woodland which is one of the reasons we love it. It's beautifully organised but not too much. The facilities although not well used as it was a short visit, were immaculate. Really covid safe for those who feel nervous. Our only regret was not having another night to chill a bit more. We will most definitely be back before the end of the year. Thanks! Jen, Mo, The Knolly Dollies and the Whippets.

Great site, shame about the weather

Good points.....Facilities great.....Staff and Check in very organised.....Takeaway during evenings welcome.....Location brilliant. Not so good...... Some pitches like car park/layby..... We would like to see pitches that are better for Caravans, being reserved for them, and ones more suited to Motorhomes, reserved for them. As there is NO difference in price between a white peg or a blue peg, it seems ridiculous to have a difference. The check in/cruise is so obviously stressful for visitors, that there must be a better way. We would like to see a better recycling set up, as most campers resort to dumpIng it all together, as there does not seem to be a system. Overall this site is very good, in a great location, and we will visit again. One point.....take note of the approach/exit route as it is the best advice. We have made the mistake of arriving via the A593, and it is miles of nerves on edge.

Poor pitches

Very nice scenic picturesque area, However after a very long journey and it was our first visit we got told to go and find our pitch and come back for keys, it was very full at the time and there wasn't a lot of choice for pitches, the site is a maze of culdesacs it was the last thing I needed getting my bike of the car roof in the rain to ride round in compition with other people trying to find a pitch, why they don't designate you a number and show you where it is I don't know, whilst we where there I noticed pitchs where being saved for people using cones, cones would be there for a couple of days before the arrival, also the pitchs are very small and un level, with a bit of work they could be made a lot better, it like a very commercialised site squeezing as many pound notes in as possible, a lot of stress on the wrong day after a long journey, a lot easier if you have been before, very clean toilets, good warm showers, I'm just being honest, we won't be going again sorry

Great Site

Lovely site, first visited a couple of years age and still remains the same. I don’t normally read previous reviews but was concerned about some of the comments regarding the site and the wardens, totally untrue! Yes, this site is not your normal CC Site, it is quirky, the pitches are different and yes, you do have to drive around a bit to find the right one. Wardens were excellent, cleanliness of the toilet blocks were also excellent. If you don’t like trees, the name of the site gives it away!
