One of the best kept secrets on the network, Dockray Meadow Caravan Club Site in Lamplugh puts you within easy reach of lesser-known lake gems, such as Cogra Moss, Ennerdale, Loweswater, Crummock Water, Buttermere, Derwentwater and Keswick. With its scenic surroundings of hills and trees, the caravan park offers a great getaway for the family. The site is also a great choice for dog owners, with lovely walks and dog friendly bistro located on the harbour front.
Dockray Meadow Caravan Club Site has a little something for all tastes. You may opt to unwind alongside the tumbling stream, watching the red squirrels dart about. For the more energetic, there are plenty of walks from and around the caravan site where you can take in the glorious fell scenery. Cyclists won't be disappointed, since the Coast to Coast Cycle Route is a short distance away. Other excursions within easy reach include the St Bees Head Nature Reserve, several nearby National Trust sites and the lovely old market town of Cockermouth, famous for being the birthplace of William Wordsworth.
Open from 18/03/2017 to 07/11/2017

Many sites set a maximum occupancy of 6/8 people per pitch, so try breaking your booking down into smaller groups to generate more results. For example, if you’re a group of 10, enter 5 people in your initial search and then book 2 pitches.
However, where the pitch or accommodation occupancy allows it, you can now make a booking for up to 30 adults and 30 children on one pitch.
To book multiple pitches or accommodation, use the 'Special requests' box on the booking page to ask to be sited together. Complete the booking form for the first booking (you can add a password and save your card so that we remember your details). Then click "Make another booking like this" at the top of the confirmation page to make the next booking.
Large groups: check the listing page for any group restrictions set out in the terms and section titled ‘Please note’.
Large tents/caravans: check the restrictions on unit dimensions to ensure your unit is suitable for the space you will be provided with.
