Easy to find, idyllic location right alongside Coniston Water.

There are three facility blocks, meaning you are never far from any one of them.

Coniston, a 30 minute walk way, is a charmingly unspoilt village, such a contrast to the busy and greatly over-commercialised Ambleside and Windermere. You really need two or three visits to take it all in.

A lovely site, albeit fairly hilly. Pitches well separated in woodland above Coniston Water. Excellent facilities, very friendly and helpful staff.

Coniston can be reached on foot, either by the old railway line or along the lake shore, a distance of 1-2 miles. The Ship Inn is about halfway along the railway line and does good food and is dog-friendly.

There is a bus service at the site entrance and even more connections in Coniston - useful for us motorhomes who like to leave their van on site and explore by foot and bus.

Coniston Old Man and the surrounding fells are also accessible directly from the site.

For us and our OES Daisy, an almost perfect site which have visited before and will do so in the future.

The campsite os fat enough off the road that there was zero road noise. Its one of the most peaceful sites we have stayed at.

Facilities as expected, typical Caravan Club high standards. The three toilet blocks are well spaces but still a fair hike from several parts of the site.

We chose a non awning (blue post) pitch when booking. On arrival we were limited to a choice of 8 pitches - there are very few non awning pitches so if you want a very specific type of pitch, or to be near facilities blocks beware and maybe go for the awning pitches.

We walked into Coniston, lovely off road walk along the paths by the lake, a couple of shops and cafes in the village worth an hours stop. There is a steam gondola running from the village and also the John Ruskin museum to visit. We also walked the other direction to Torver, where again there is an off road path all the way, The Wilson Arms is a great place to stop for a coffee, meal or a drink.

For us this is a great campsite for exploring the area - close to coast and only 20 minutes from Ambleside. There was a pizza van in site one night and we understood a chippy van also visited. To eat out you would need to drive or taxi unless you want to walk on dark paths by the river at this time of year(in summer would be lovely evening walks to pubs along the foopaths).

Would use again for sure.

A quiet peaceful campsite close to Coniston water.

Suitable for families or couples this quiet campsite is set in the forest on the hillside going down to the lake. There are some quite steep hills so pick your pitch carefully if you’re not keen on walking uphill to the toilet block or to refill the water.

Friendly welcome this being our first time on a caravan and motorhome club site, we were told to drive around and pick a pitch then let them know which one we had gone for and get the toilet key and barrier pass. This seemed a good idea but it generated arguments in the car as we dragged the caravan around the narrow roads trying to find a spot that suited everyone’s needs.

I liked the way the pitches were set in small individual areas, no rows and rows of caravans in straight lines which meant you weren’t looking in other peoples windows.

Toilet block were plentiful and very clean. And amazingly the first site I’ve stayed on where the showers actually stay on until you turn the, off. No fumbling about for wall mounted buttons through shampoo covered eyes to start the shower again! Amazing.

You can cycle or walk to Coniston Village across a footpath avoiding the narrow road.

Highly recommended.

16A EHU and a plug for TV signal pickup on the EHU bollard so bring a lead to connect the TV.

Small young children’s playground down the bottom of the site.

Very, very nice site. Set in Woodland within a stone's throw of Coniston lake. You can walk from the site on a path over to Coniston village or in the opposite direction by the lake to Trover. We took a boat trip from the marina near Coniston which was fabulous.

The showers/toilets are very clean and well maintained. Plenty of fresh water, bins and chemical waste points within easy reach. Also TV aerial plug ins on the EHU points so take your extended white cable for excellent reception.

4G for interweb no problem.

We didn't use are chocks but a lot of people needed them. We could choose our own pitch which was nice. Keep up the good work folks!

This was my first time staying on a C&MH club site and I was really impressed. The site was well laid out with generous pitches. Due to the woodland you felt quite secluded. The little shop on site had a good selection of bits that you might need and the toilets were always clean. We were there the week before Easter and the site was quiet so some of the showers were closed. It would have been nice to have them all open. From the site you can walk directly onto the banks of Coniston Water and there is a lovely walk into the village. A great site for exploring the southern lakes.

The access roads to Coniston are narrow and if you have a big caravan or Motorhome you will want to be a confident driver preferably not at peak season

This is a big site with all the usual Caravan and Motorhome standards. Each pitch is hardstanding and a good size, I suggest you bring Rock pegs if you intend using an awning. Leveling ramps are a must for most pitches.

This is a good site for wildlife, lots of bird song and a cheeky little squirrel came to check out the bird feeder someone had brought along with them in the next pitch. There is forest work going on around the site so chainsaws can be heard through out the day. This will continue until mid June

A short walk to Coniston where you'll find shops and cafes which all seem to be dog friendly. Head off in the other direction for a nice walk along the lake side where you can let dogs off lead for a splodge about in the water.

Enjoyed a stay here in the recent snow. Plenty of choice of pitches midweek though more arrivals at weekend. Approximately 60 pitches available to use when we visited as site only part open. Easy walk down to lake and in to Coniston - despite the ice and sleet! Lovely lunch at Herdwicks café just past Ruskin museum - very dog friendly. Approach roads are narrow in places and very windy but fine in a campervan, wouldn't fancy it in a motorhome or caravan when it's peak season.

Toilet facilities are locked at all times - you get given a key when you let reception know your pitch number. Not sure why that's needed in winter - the campsite by the lake isn't open so quite who else would be using facilities I have no idea. We weren't told this when we arrived so wondered why we couldn't get in. Usual high standard of cleanliness and warmth which was good as it was freezing outside.

Useful tip if you want to check the state of the approach road is to look at Cumbria Council webcam as its a couple of miles up the road. Would be happy to stay here again when its not school holidays - imagine it's very busy then - especially when you get a midweek discount. We also liked that there were lots of woodland glades to pitch in - you wouldn't realise how big the site is as it is well laid out.

Several play areas for kids too

Wow what a great site.

Despite its size it still offers much privacy yet cannot be seen from the Lake !

Great location and great wardens all with superb facilities.

Lots of great walks on your doorstep and Coniston a nice steady flat walk, lovely little village with nice pubs and a few shops.

This is one of our favourites. A stunning site that is hidden in woods. Toilets spotless, wardens very helpful. The area is great for walking - Old Man, walk down the lake side, or walk into Coniston. We also walked to Tarn Howes which was an all day walk. Nice pubs in Coniston and Torver. Every where is Dog Friendly.
