The Coniston Hall Campsite is a 5 minute drive south of the village of Coniston. It is signposted on the left of the road just after you’ve passed The Ship Inn pub. There is a bus stop on the main road here, linking Coniston to the town of Ulverston. Coniston village itself is about a 45 to 60 minute drive from the M6 motorway.
The Coniston Hall Campsite is very well located for getting to some of the Lake Districts best walks/outdoors activities (it’s just a 30 minute drive at most to Windermere, Ambleside and the Langdales), and it’s walking distance to Coniston Village and the lovely surrounding fells. If you can be hopeful of sun and no school groups, then the campsite would definately merit an extended stay. If only they segregated the noisy campers from the quiet, it would be great! As it is though, it’s clean enough, and well located, and good value, so not a bad bet.
Coniston Hall is a large campsite very close to the lake, and within walking distance of Coniston village. The site accepts tents and motor homes only. The ground is a little rocky, so take a mallet to knock in your tent pegs. No booking is required, but get there early as the site is very popular in high season. If you want a quiet area, pitch up near the entrance, the downside being that it’s a longer trek to the toilets and shower block.
