Why stay here ...

We are excited to announce that Coniston Park Coppice now has another brand new dog/bike wash point on site for you to use.

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.

Lovely location but pitch away from the park

Coniston Park Coppice Caravan Club Site
Lovely site with good amenities and ideal location. We ended up next the small children’s play park because there weren’t many pitches left. We assumed, with small children of our own, that this would be quiet after a reasonable time in the evening, However, groups of older children were playing noisily on the park until around 10.30/11pm. We complained to a warden and a sign was put up saying ‘no ball games. Playground closes at 10pm’ but no one adhered to this and the problem got worse, rather than better. I understand that children need to have a place to play on holiday but this was a toddler park and large groups were kicking footballs (some of which hit our van) and screaming until very late. Sadly, this affected our stay. We would visit again but make sure we stayed well away from this area.

Good but poor pitches

Coniston Park Coppice Caravan Club Site
First time we have stayed at this site. (Mid July hottest week so far this year) Very good location and easy walk to Coniston lake or village. Although not a club issue I found the journey towards the site rather hair raising at times due to people double parking on bends and leaving very little room for outfits to fit though. The site was very welcoming and we were quickly booked in. However on driving around the site I had trouble finding a suitable sized pitch for my set up.(I only have an average sized 4 berth van with awning). After driving around several times I managed to locate a pitch (227) and set up. We then had a walk around the site to get our bearings and could see several caravans or motorhomes driving around and around obviously looking for a suitable sized pitch in which to park. I have to say that the pitches are overdue a refurb' as some are very small with the woodland encroaching onto the parking area, some 'white peg' pitches would struggle to fit on a caravan, awning and car and other pitches fall away into the woodland. That said we had a very enjoyable stay with Coniston lake being only a 10 minute walk through the site. Windermere was also close by and we found it easier to turn right out of the site and make our way to the ferry rather than the longer drive by turning left. As mentioned above regarding pitch sizes, we left on the Friday evening but just prior to hitching up I saw a family with caravan drive past us four times, when they past a fifth time I flagged them down and they were also frustrated that they could not find a suitable sized pitch (this was there first time at the site). Once explained that we were leaving they waited and then claimed our spot. So in summary a nice clean site but pitches overdue a refurb'

Will definitely be back

Coniston Park Coppice Caravan Club Site
I recently visited the site for the first time for some road cycling and hiking. The site location is perfect, right next to Coniston water and the village itself is within easy walking distance if you wanted to pop to the pub one night. I really like the concept of being able to pick your own pitch. I was a bit apprehensive about this at first and spent a little bit of time drivng around to find a pitch but looking back I think it's a great idea and gives you complete freedom. There's an onsite food truck by reception which does really great pizza (perfect after a days cycling). I'll definitely be back again soon to this site.
