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.

We have just enjoyed 2 weeks at this site extended by 2 days (as long as we were able because of home commitments). Firstly, having read the previous review, have to correct what was said: tv was available with the usual booster cable, wifi also is available within the hot spot as per the club book site information. Whilst we were on site we had the pleasure of meeting the wardens and assistant wardents who were helpful, friendly and knowledgeable. The site is so peaceful most of the time. Unfortunately there was an incident offsite with a resident who was arrested on the adjacent static site which did cause a disturbance mid afternoon and some late evening/early morning noise made by someone who thought he was Elvis Presley which was not associated that we know of, but it was short lived and nothing to do with the clubsite. As regards installing toilet facilites mentioned by another member: no thank you. We feel this would spoil the tranquility of the site and as nearly all of us have our own facilities, this is not necessary and there are other sites in the Lake District that do offer full facilities for families and those who require them. ps. the sunsets were to die for, we can't wait to return.
