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.

Very pleasant for walking on the area

We visited for two nights as a short break. The wardens were very welcoming, pitches mainly flat and with pleasant views of the surrounding fells. The dog exercise area is great, with agility equipment provided. We ate out one evening at the Ennerdale brewery, but we had to go in the motorhome because the walk along a busy main road is unpleasant. It is a shame that there is no local pub or cafe within easy walking distance. The site is ideal for visiting Cockermouth, Whitehaven and Keswick. We walked to Cogra Moss but a little disappointed that we could not find a suitable circular route around the moss. I am sure it is possible but we didn't have a map with enough detail on it to work it out. Some of the lake side is privately owned by the angling club so walkers not allowed access. It is worth exploring the history of the area.

Lovely tranquillity site

Stayed here over the August bank holiday. Had a lovely 5 nights here. It is so peaceful and tranquil. You could here the sound of the stream running nearby. We were lucky to have some wonderful weather. It's definitely not for those who are looking for pubs nearby. We didn't see any nearby. The relieve wardens were friendly and always said hello when they saw you. Embeddable water is nearby and is a beautiful place to visit you could walk round the lake for hours. Will certainly visit again next year. There is no play area for children so may not appeal to those who have children. The dog area is good. Defiantly give it give stars.

Beautiful Site

We have recently spent two nights on this lovely site.If we had known how beautiful it was going to be we would have planned to stay longer. The site is spotlessly clean & there are plenty of walks from the site. We had our dog with us & she loved the little dog agility area that they have set up. What a brilliant idea & a lovely touch. Thank you for a lovely stay. We hope to see you again soon. Di Tony & Poppy Rose

What more could you ask for

So many wonderful comments have already been stated and we agree with them. It is a lovely site in a lovely location with lovely wardens. Maybe not for some families wanting local activities other than walking. We would agree that a toilet block is not required as most if not all units have these facilities on board. Living in Dorset it is not local so we will not be able to regularly visit.

Fantastiic site and even better wardens :-)

We have just come back from the bank holiday weekend and on arrival we were met at reception with a big smile from Arnie Arnold ( the warden) and that smile never left his face all weekend. What a lovely couple they are they are a credit to the caravan & motorhome club, they are very helpful, friendly and made the weekend very enjoyable. They have provided dog toys and a small agility with a couple of jumps and a tunnel ( nice touch) We had a tad issue with our awning and we spoke with them both and it wasn't an issue and they accommodated us. The site is immaculate very pretty and quiet in fact all you can hear is the birds tweeting. we walked the 7.5 mile cycle route that we downloaded from the caravan club and a I think it needs updating The Sun Inn pub is now two houses and the Stork hotel is very hit and miss, we did however stumble across Ennerdale Brewery and they made us very welcome, we tried a couple of bees (rude not to ) and the food was reasonably priced we walked to Ennerdale Lake this is beautiful and defiantly worth a visit. We most certainly will be back :-) A big thank you for making the weekend so enjoyable
