Water Weekend Coniston. Walter’s Water Weekend goes from strength to strength. Numbers increase each year and last year’s campsite at Coniston Hall was given a definite thumbs-up from all who stayed there. So we’re going back this year! Coniston Hall Campsite doesn’t take reservations - just turn up. If you’re arriving late on Friday, though, please ring the owner and let him know. The owner is Brian Wilson and his telephone number is 015394 41223.
It’s quite a big site; look out for the Fellfarers’ flag which should be flying over our encampment. If water is not your thing there’s plenty of good walking
. Camping cost: £8 per adult, £4 per child, £2 per car, all per night.
