This year we're heading to Coniston for our annual Lake District weekend. It should be a fantastic weekend. We'll be guests of Coniston Sailing Club and will have access to their facilities for the weekend including a well stocked bar and Saturday night BBQ. Camping will be at Coniston Hall camping site next to the club, we will have a separate field reserved just for us.
There will be an informal gathering in the Club Bar on Friday night and on Saturday there will be a BBQ.
Safety boat cover will be provided and you can securely store your boat at the Sailing Club for the weekend.
There's no need to go sailing if you don't fancy it. The campsite has direct access to the lake, Coniston village is a short walk away and the rest of the Lake District is on your doorstep.
