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.

Dockray delight

We booked 5 nights and picked the best weather week in September. This site is only about an hour and a half from home, middle of our beautiful county of Cumbria and is easily accessible from all directions. We were welcomed by the exceptionally hardworking wardens who throughout our stay were always around the site keeping it well maintained and always had time for a natter. We did a bit of walking as we have an energetic dog who loves the countryside. Unlike previous reviewer, we did find a way to walk the whole way around Cogra Moss reservoir, not sure whether we should have as work was being undertaken by the Forestry but not on the day we chose to do it and we had the correct footwear to ramble across uneven ground. We were disappointed that we didn't see any red squirrels but we heard daily conversations between a couple of owls who are resident in the trees surrounding the site. My only negative was the arrival on the Friday evening of a family who pitched next to us whose children were allowed to kick a ball around, they weren't over noisey but lacked and weren't even considerate about pitch etiquette. The pitches are more over very generous in size but my pitch is not a free for all. My pitch is not a childrens playground. I realise wholeheartedly children need to be outside and allowed to play but this site isn't set up with vast open green spaces for ball games. We will visit this site again.

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
