Great site despite the weather

Lovely natural layout with lots of nooks and crannies to ensure you are not overlooked, if that’s your preference. Site is very quiet apart from the rain and acorns from trees on roof of van, but that’s the country and the Lake District in October for you!! Lots of easy walks from site and nice pubs in comfortable walking distance. The on site takeaway pizza/fish & chip van was very good and welcome after a long walk. It’s a lovely site and we felt very safe with COVID restrictions implemented and adhered to.

First visit to a Club site

Just back from our first visit to a club site as new members. The site was perfect, upon arrival we was asked to go find a pitch which was nice as visiting other non club sites we have always been allocated a pitch and picking our own spot was really cool. All the pitches were spacious and felt really private and seculded in a woodland setting. The facilities were ace , toilets and showers spotless and show how dedicated the staff are at this site. Nothing was too much trouble to the hard working staff who helped tell us about the area and where we could go walking , cycling and find the nearest pub which is a short walk on paths right from the site. Eddie and Kath were very helpful with providing walking routes and telling us about the site and area , this is thier first season and if all staff are like them we are glad we have joined the club. We did walks to Tarn Hows, The lower slopes of the Old Man and the full ascent of the Old Man a great hike that is, and can be done from the site starting with a walk along the old railway path into Coniston and picking up the route by the Sun Hotel. We cycled from the site around the lake which on the opposite side is on very quiet roads and nothing too hilly. We really enjoyed our visit to Park Coppice and will return and if other club sites are like this one we look forward to visiting more. Thanks again to all the friendly staff especially Eddie and Kath

Motorhome virgins

First time anywhere in our Motorhome. Surprised to be Told that we had restricted our choice by booking a non awning pitch. Nice surroundings, albeit a bit gloomy. We thought Center Parcs on wheels without the commerce. Finding a pitch was daunting for first timers. Beautiful location. Easy walk to civilisation. Food facility on site for the less energetic. Facilities as expected. A pleasant couple of nights in autumn

Ideally located for Lake Coniston

We spent 5 nights here recently. A pleasant large site with adequate & clean facilities given it's size. As well as the band system you also had a key for the shower blocks which was different to other sites we have stayed on but given the close proximity to an adjoining NT campsite I guess this is a requirement as accessibility couldn't otherwise be monitored..... Most pitches are in shade or dappled shade so be aware, it is also 'hilly' but pitches are reasonably level in most places. Had a lovely 1 hour boat trip on the Sunday, recommended. Coniston village has a Spar in the petrol station, an independent Co-op + a local store with a butchers. Pubs are plentiful for food & drink.

Wet weekend in Coniston

We love this site. Its close to the lake with a short stroll from the end of the caravan site to the lake gate, its also about a 15 min stroll into Coniston itself. As expected all facilities are clean and this really is a great site for walkers. Yes there are trees and the rain on the roof maybe annoying ! but hey that's nature for ya!

NOT FOR US

Found the site rather enclosed and claustrophobic. Majority of pitches are under trees so only great if you love rain dripping on your roof. Layout somewhat higgledy-piggledy so finding and choosing a pitch is far from straightforward. As expected the facilities were spotless. Obviously suits some but we won't be back.

Peaceful stay

This was a great site, although a big site, no one was to close, nicely all in the trees. Toilet blocks ,although didn’t need them, they were spotlessly clean. And just a short walk down to Coniston water, plenty of long walks each way next to the water. Our dog loved it. The wardens were all very helpful, look forward to visiting again. Our family used two of the Experience Freedom pods and glamming,they also were very good to.

Great location for exploring around Coniston

As the saying goes one man’s meat is another man’s poison. Some will love it, others hate it and everything in between. Park Coppice is very different to the run of the mill, bowling green flat, regimentally arranged pitches which could be anywhere you find on a typical Caravan Club site. So I will try to stick mainly to the facts. The approach on the A5084 from the A580, which is the recommended route, is twisty, undulating and quite narrow in places. Meet another van or motorhome coming the opposite way (as we did) and life can suddenly become very interesting. The journey home leaving early was quieter, which made things a bit easier. With such a road though I find it strange the site allow arrivals from 10am. Once on site the check in, with the usual friendly welcoming staff is straightforward enough. Finding a suitable pitch less so. Pitches vary considerably in size, ease of access and degree of slope. Yes, there are some huge, fairly level ones but a fair number slope in various directions. Levelling blocks are a must-have bit of kit. Driving all the way round to have a look is not a good idea if this is your first visit. If you see a reasonable pitch grab it. You might not find it again. With that in mind it is worth studying both the site layout plan and Google Earth street view before you travel to get some idea what you are up against. It is also worth considering where the service points are. Lugging 40l of water up hill is not easy. The lake is 5-10 minutes walk from the site, depending where you are pitched and Coniston an easy 30 minute walk. It can also be a good walk to reception to collect your keys etc. The pitches are in woodland so it can be quite dark. But most pitches are very sheltered. You do have to put up with water dripping off the trees when it rains. Because of Covid we didn’t use the on site toilet blocks but they looked typical of CC sites. Again, depending where you pitch these can be a bit of a walk. We spent a week there and didn’t use the car once. There are so many good walks from the site and other attractions on the lake we didn’t need to. The site is full of birds and squirrels. We hung a feeder up on the first day and it was empty within an hour. Plan your visit carefully and in my opinion the site is well worth a visit, if nothing else but to experience the beauty of the Lake district. Which, in the end is why the site is as it is.

Coppice campsite

Access reasonable for our motorhome.easy to locate.unusual caravan club site ,good access to the Coniston water and excellent walking area.Facilities very clean ,overall the site is tidy.only negative point is due to unusual layout of the campsite ,there was not sufficient lighting in the dark evening to and from the facilities.so a good torch is a must..

Lovely stay at Coppice

We really loved this site short walk down to the lake bit further into Coniston. Friendly staff very helpful. Facilities very clean. Felt very safe throughout. We heard Owls at night its situation in amongst the trees provide a peaceful and secluded pitch. Definitely our favourite so far.
