The glamping pods

General

  • On the banks of Coniston Water in a convenient Lake District location
  • A 35-minute drive to Lake Windermere and two-hour walk to the Old Man
  • Playground, shop, laundry facilities, bathroom facilities and wifi

Wanting a walking hol in the Lake District? Make Coniston Experience Freedom Glamping in Cumbria, right on the shores of Coniston Water, your base for strolls aplenty through this famed landscape. The site is a 35-minute drive from Windermere, the most well-known lake of the lot, and a two-hour amble from the peak of the 2,634-foot-high Old Man of Coniston fell.

Wanders through woodlands can be had straight from the park, while aquatic adventures start at Coniston's Waterhead Pier, under a 10-minute drive away. Try windsurfing and canoeing, as well as dinghy sailing and steamboat rides… or simply stay put soaking up the scenery on site while the kids scamper around the playground and go gung ho for the organised activities.

Sticking to dry land, cycling, pony trekking and abseiling are all available in the area too; to navigate rope bridges and whoosh across zipwires above the trees, Go Ape in Grizedale Forest is a half-hour drive away.

Not up for any of these most energetic expeditions? As Lake District aficionados well know, this locale also has lots on offer if you’re into lazing. Bookworms can mosey around Beatrix Potter’s old home, a 40-minute drive from the site, while picnickers might want to make it as far as the National Trust's Aira Force waterfall, an hour away. You can fill your hamper at the park’s shop, or head over to Coniston village (a 10-minute drive) for the supermarket.

This site is a member of Caravan and Motorhome Club group.

Local attractions

If you're seeking slightly different leisure days in the Lake District, John Ruskin’s House at Brantwood, with its unique stone xylophone, is 20 minutes' drive from the park. The neo-Gothic Victorian Wray Castle is half an hour away, while Rydal Hall Gardens – also 30 minutes – has an open-air sculpture trail to potter along.

To see exotic animals instead of art, South Lakes Safari Zoo, 45 minutes from the site, is home to everything from soaring macaws to bounding kangaroos, while the Lingholm Estate (1 hour and five minutes) has alpacas to accompany you on short walks.

Sticking closer to the park, sort your Lake District views by driving to the Tarns (20 minutes away) and meandering as long as you please. Once you’re done with above-ground explores, Cathedral cave, a series of connected quarries, is also reachable within a 20-minute drive.

If you're up for setting your goals higher – perhaps as high as Scafell Pike, England’s highest mountain – start this bucket-list trek after driving for an hour and 20 minutes to the beginning of the trail.
