- Pitches within the grounds of a family-run Lake District village pub
- On the Cumbria Way, a five-minute drive from Coniston village
- Pub with great food, takeaways and beer garden, plus deli on site
From pitch to pint in a matter of just a few minutes… if that sounds like just the thing for your Cumbria break, book a spot at The Wilson Arms, where pitches are located just behind a fab family-run pub about five minutes’ drive from Coniston.
This being the Lake District National Park, there are gorgeous views all around here – the pub sits in the shadow of the towering Old Man of Coniston and Dow Crag, and it’s close to the Duddon Valley, Furness Fells and other lovely parts of the Lakes (Ambleside, Grasmere and Wastwater are all within easy reach). Long-distance walkers may also like to note that it’s on the route of the Cumbria Way (a stopover with a pub attached… how handy…)
Wherever you choose to roam by day, back at base you can spend the evening cosied up in the classic country pub, which serves top-notch meals, fine ales and takeaways, or head outside to the hugely popular outdoor marquee, where food and drinks are served up every day from 11am. There’s also a lovely deli on site where you can pick up various bits of local food for your picnic, home-baked cakes and light meals (including soups and jacket potatoes).
The pitches here are quite simple in style, but there’s plenty of space to go round and guests will have access to the pub toilets and a shower block.
