- Lakes campsite recomendations (Coniston/Windermere way)?
Coniston Old Hall is ideal for your needs! There will be a number of similar groups to yourself, guaranteed. Quiet it isn’t. Its a quick stroll down by the lake to quite a few decent pubs. What more do you want?
I can’t stress this enough though: TAKE ROCK PEGS FOR YOUR TENT!!!! If you don’t own some, then get some before you set off!Posted 4 years ago
For an upcoming biking trip.
My mate seems to be having trouble finding one, all the one’s he’s spoken to have had an issue with it being a single-sex group (there’s only six of us, and we’re all the far side of 35…) and/or won’t have a campervan (mine) next to the tents (the rest of the group).
Any recommendations? Near to a pub is obviously important too 🙂Posted 4 years agoiain65Member
This place in the next valley over from Coniston and is probably one of the most scenic in the UK, a bit off the tourist trail though. It’s also right at the bottom of the Walna Scar road which is ideal to start or end your ride 🙂Posted 4 years agopaulo123Member
I would recommend Hoathwaite in Torver. Bit more of a walk into Coniston, but there are a couple of pubs in Torver. A lot less crowded than Coniston Hall which can get manic in summer, cheaper as well. As a single sex group of 4 coniston hall wanted to take £10 each deposit for potential noise. The warden at Hoathwaite couldn’t have been nicer, even gave us some canoe’s to mess about in on the lake.Posted 4 years agobongleSubscriber
Abbot Park Farm. Between southern ends of lakes coniston and Windermere. Traditional farm owned by lovely people who will open their teas hol barn for brekkies and home made cakes as required. Haven’t tried the pub nearby but the location is tranquil, limited to 12 tents max.Posted 4 years agojambalayaSubscriber
Notwithstanding @hora’s comment I was going to suggest Hawkshead, I imagine it’s usually full as its a short stroll to the pubs and restaurants of the village and just down the road from Grizdale trails (and between Coniston and Winderemere). When we were staying in a small hotel in the village the campsite was busy with lots of mountain bikers.Posted 4 years ago
