Why stay here ...

One of the best kept secrets on the network, Dockray Meadow Club Site in Lamplugh puts you within easy reach of lesser-known lake gems, such as Cogra Moss, Ennerdale, Loweswater, Crummock Water, Buttermere, Derwentwater and Keswick. With its scenic surroundings of hills and trees, the caravan park offers a great getaway for the family. It is also a great choice for dog owners with lovely walks from the site.

Dockray Meadow Club Site has a little something for all tastes. You may opt to unwind alongside the tumbling stream, watching the red squirrels dart about. For the more energetic, there are plenty of walks from and around the caravan site where you can take in the glorious fell scenery. Cyclists won't be disappointed, since the Coast to Coast Cycle Route is a short distance away. Other excursions within easy reach include the St Bees Head Nature Reserve, several nearby National Trust sites and the lovely old market town of Cockermouth, famous for being the birthplace of William Wordsworth.

Please Note: This site does not have a toilet block.

Campervan Visit September 2021

Dockray Meadow Caravan Club Site
Excellent site which was well maintained by very friendly wardens. Pitch size variable and some pitches shaded. Very quiet and were regaled by the Tawny Owls at night. Sadly no red squirrels seen as they seem to have been put off by some of the tethered dogs! Useful information on local short walks and good access to the high fells above Cogra Moss for longer excursions. Surrounding roads relatively quiet so walking to and around Ennerdale Water was not a problem. Easy access to site as only a short distance from the main road.

amazing

Dockray Meadow Caravan Club Site
so my second visit here this year and already booked for next, this is the kind of site i like very rural and quiet. you use your own facilities in you van, the way camping should be and well done for keeping this site this way. there are really good staff who are very knowable on the local area. within easy reach of Whitehaven and other local villages. the site itself is well lade out and so full of wildlife it truly amazing and together with the dedicated staff makes it a lovely place to visit. there are many lovely walks with beautiful scenery in this area really worthwhile visiting here. we have found everyone on this site each time we have come here very friendly just like all the club sites. so if you love peace and quiet with lovely walks with bundle of nature especially those crazy squirrels you will love it here.

Peaceful site

Dockray Meadow Caravan Club Site
Lovely peaceful site immaculately kept by the wardens. Some of the pitches were not that big to get a 7.4 m motor home in and could imagine some larger caravans would have the same problem. Phone signal was a poor and no tv signal where we were. However the site was lovely, right by a babbling stream.We took a car and was glad of it around a lot of the narrow roads in the Lakes. The site was in a great location for the Western lakes including some of the quieter places like Ennerdale water. Also walked to Cogra Moss reservoir from the site Will definitely go again.

Ideal for caravanners

Dockray Meadow Caravan Club Site
Very peaceful site but probably more suited to caravanners than motorhomers as there are only a couple of available walks which don't require road access. Worth making the trip to Loweswater for the circular walk along one side. Although peaceful, the site is very open with 3 rows of outfits facing one another. Ennerdale Craft Brewery Tap is excellent, dog friendly, and great beer and food. Again, you will need to drive to reach it, there are no pubs in easy walking distance.

First Time on non Facilities.

Dockray Meadow Caravan Club Site
As previous member this was first time on non shower block site for 20+ years. Although that was not a problem using our own on board bathroom in c'van - the only gripe would be be another water service point on site or water/grey waste to each pitch would be lovely( lugging the grey waste gets heavy and constant water topping up when both showering every day). it's probably why not many families use it - a bonus for many ?? Not sure about the grass being left to be "meadow" effect around back of pitches & in the centre - it just looks messy and unkempt. There are plenty of hedgerows/meadows in surrounding area. The dog area is not very big on site - ok for first & last thing - took dog off site to the field on opposite side of road (over stile by static caravan park) to have an off the lead run. Having said that nice quiet site, no major traffic on road which passes site - just locals taking a quicker route. It was some members who drove around the site at speed (both cars & motorhomes) who should know better that were the problem. There is a walk from site to Cogra Moss reservoir which is not strenuous, drove out to Buttermere & pleasant walk around lake (last there 25+ years ago) beautiful place with new cafes now added for a much needed cuppa. Plenty to see & do in the area depends how far you wish to travel out. Friendly stand-in wardens were on site the week we were there with helpful suggestions and a cheery smile... had an enjoyable week in a beautiful part of the country.

With our campsites busier than ever right now, we'd really appreciate your support with a few things to help everyone have a safe and enjoyable stay.
