The Campsite is on former working dairy farmland, an excellent little site We have all the facilities of much larger & more expensive sites but with less people! The emphasis is on luxury and tranquillity within a rural area, we welcome well behaved pets and have a dedicated fenced dog exercise area on the opposite side of the road to the site and cater for families too with our family washroom & small under 10s play area. We also have an over 10s ball area. Bikes and ball games are not allowed on site for safety as we are a small site.

Facilities include a small pond stocked with young fish, a picnic area, open fields to walk in and look over, dog walking is opposite the main site, numerous nearby bridal paths, an onsite reception & small shop with daily bread/pastries order in & a once a week take away in high season, our on site spa caters for manicures, pedicures & massages/alternative therapies. We have tractor trailer rides in high season & a kids tent with activities. We have talks in the barn and weekly family quiz nights and bingo nights. Everything stops at 10pm to maintain the peace on site & we wake up so early!

Each pitch has uninterrupted views over open unspoilt countryside most with parking next to the pitch but not all, a small overflow parking area , a heated shower block with 4 showers,4 wcs, & 3 dishwashing sinks, a disabled/family washroom with baby change unit, a laundry and a chemical toilet disposal unit and an overflow unheated block with 2 further showers, WCs and dishwashing sinks.

The site has CCTV, nightly gate alarm from midnight to 7am for everyone's safety and security & there is very basic WIFI (free) We also offer secure storage facilities & 5 seasonal pitches separate from the main site Pitch fees start at £17 up to £26 for a superpitch this is for pitch, unit, one car, EHU and 2 adults. Children,extra adults, dogs and extra vehicles are chargeable on top.
