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.

Our 3rd fantastic visit

We visited 13th Feb for 3 nights, We were greeted by friendly staff and advised that part of the park was closed ( no problem ) Storm Dennis was due to hit this weekend and the wardens said if we had any problems to let them know. The site is spotless and they are forever cleaning up, always friendly and time to chat, massively helped us out when leaving as a bad crash due to the floods on our route home and caused delays up to 5 hours so we stayed on for a couple more hours to save us being sat in a jam - thank you The walking is fab and within reach of the old man of Coniston its a hard walk but worth it, close to the lake, also2 pubs ( turn left ) on an enclosed path, approx. 2 miles away turn right to the ship inn about a mile away This was our 3rd visit and wont be our last :-) keep up the good work

Brilliant stay again

Our 2nd stay at Coniston last year and while a little dissapointed some of the pitches where closed it really didn't distract from another wounderful stay there. We arrived on 22/12/19 and left on 29/12/19 we had a great xmas there really enjoyed ourselves along with our 3 little jrts it's a short walk to Torver where we had a great xmas day drink in the Wilsons Arms the locals made us feel very welcome welcome and put some food on. We where due to stay till after New Year but due to my wife not feeling well we had to leave early but we will be back later this year.

Shortage of pitches .....

On arrival I was told that only a third of the site is kept open during the winter. This meant that at the busy time just after New Year there were very few pitches to chose from and this was compounded by a contractor spreading gravel on a number of pitches. I understand that keeping just one facility block open is economic during the winter months but it is a shame that members aren't allowed to have a bigger choice of pitches if they are prepared to walk a bit further. Strangely, the lighting and EHU points were lit throughout the whole of the closed off sections. The facility block was not particularly warm and the showers could have been hotter - surely a key requirement from a club site in winter? A lack of lighting descending the steps away from the facility block is a distinct safety concern.

Brilliant location for exploring Southern and West Lakes

Many years ago we stayed at this site and decided to return with our daughter and family who are now caravaners. Although it was full because it was half term there was still the air of tranquility and quietness. If you are happy with a pitch in woodland this is for you as most of the pitches are under trees. The site is well laid out with a number of areas separated by woodland. The site is a short distance from Coniston village. It takes between 20 and 30 minutes to walk there. At the village there are a number of cafes and the one by the Lake is worthwhile going to. It is busy but well managed and organised. The site is ideally situated for exploring the southern and western lakes. There are lovely walks suitable for all abilities. A trip on the steam gondola is well worth doing. Our two grandchildren (11 and 13) had a great time. On a particularly wet day they had a brilliant time on Go Ape in Grizedale Forest. One concern was the state the toilets were left in the morning (clearly done by caravanners and left for others including the wardens to clean). All in all we enjoyed our return to the site and would highly recommend it.

One of the best

Perfect location, excellent facilities, kept spotlessly clean by wardens who were a pleasure to meet. An ideal base for seeing the Lake District, the pitches were large and the gaps between even bigger. A 20-25 minute walk from the site, along the lake to Coniston village, Bluebird cafe by the pier we’ll worth a visit, and it’s pet friendly. Will definitely be returning.
