Alan Rogers Review

Coniston Park Coppice Caravan and Motorhome Culb site is set a stone’s throw away from Coniston Water this site is ideally placed for exploring the Lake District National Park. Imaginatively landscaped, the site is set in 63 acres of beautiful National Trust woodland. With pitches grouped in open glades and easy access to the fun attractions of Coniston Water, the site offers a scenic, peaceful base for an active holiday that will keep the whole family happy. The site accommodates its own mini adventure playground for children and additional activities within the area include cycling, rock climbing, guided pony treks around the fells and much more. The sloping pitches often require the use of levelling ramps & chocks. The village of Coniston is just under 2 miles away and can be reached along the old railway line located behind the nearby Ship Inn. Buses to the tourist honey-pots of Ambleside and Windermere can be caught at the site entrance. In the high season Fish & Chips & Pizza are available on site on selected nights.

The close proximity of Coniston Water is a great bonus, for a short walk of 400 yards brings you to the lakeside launching point where you can enjoy watching or try your hand at a range of water sports such as dinghy sailing, windsurfing and canoeing. Coniston Pier, only 1.5 mile away, offers steamboat rides on the Coniston Gondola and boat hire. Several cafes and pubs serving good food are located in the village 1 mile away. The site is an excellently placed central point for exploring the whole National Park, with its dramatic combination of Lakeland and soaring fells. Needless to say, the walking is matchless and you have a good range of paths to keep you on the go. Birdwatchers will not be disappointed - expect to have your binoculars in constant use, especially in Grizedale Forest.

N.B. Non-members may join on site and make a substantial saving on pitch fees, please speak to site staff for more details and to check pitch availability before arrival.

Location

We reccomend approaching the site from the South, via Newby Bridge on the A590. Follow signposts for the A590. At Greenodd turn right onto the A5092 (signposted to Workington). Within 2 miles fork right onto A5084. In about 6 miles in Torver turn right onto the A593. The site is on the right within 1.25 miles (100 yards past the brown and white tourism sign). Note that the final approach from North or South is narrow in places.
