Pitch your tent at Hoathwaite

This popular laid back campsite overlooks the shores of Coniston Water at the foot of the Coniston Fells.


The site has showers and toilets but other than that we have kept it simple. Rather than a reception, our team pop in to say 'hello' and check that you are settled in. They will happily recommend walks and activities in the area. 

Why not explore the lake from from on board our fabulous Steam Yacht Gondola that sets off from Coniston Pier - a 20 minute walk from the campsite.

Advanced bookings only

There is a 3 night minimum stay on Bank Holidays and a 2 night minimum stay for all advanced bookings.
Whilst we are reopening our campsites gradually and safely in line with government guidance, we are not able to accept campers who have not booked in advance. This is to ensure that we can manage numbers on site and allow for social distancing.
