Park Coppice CC Site

Nestling in the Woods

Nestling in the Woods

May 3rd to 5th. Well organised site set in 63 acres of National Trust woodland and about a quarter of a mile from Coniston Water. Everything you expect from a CC site.
Pitches have been arranged into cul de sacs of perhaps 5 to 10 vehicles at a time. Dogs have to be kept on a lead so you really have to walk down through the site to the lake before you feel you can let the dog off the lead which is a shame but understandable.

Very friendly wardens and despite the large number of pitches we did manage to get tucked away in a corner and felt at least a little bit isolated.

If you walk to the bottom of the site you exit through a gate right next to Coniston Lake.  Even more surprising is you exit into another campsite altogether of which more in the next post but if you like the no facilities option then this would be the preference.

We took a taxi to The Farners Arms where we had an excellent evening meal – highly recommended.  Clearly they feed farmers sons on a regular basis as all portions were beyond our ability to consume due to size but very well presented.  Also highly recommended.

We spent one afternoon at the Lakeland Motor Museum which you might expect would have been totally boring for SWMBO but in fact we both enjoyed it.  Very interesting and not at all what I expected in terms of the quality and quantity of the exhibits.  The Donald Campbell exhibition next door (included in the motor museum ticket) is also more than well worth a visit.  I did spot my car whilst going around the museum.

Love It!

Love It!
