***ALL CARAVANS/MOTORHOMES MUST BE MEMBERS OF THE CAMPING & CARAVANNING CLUB***
**Toilet/Shower facilities will be closed down from Monday 19th October 2015. Electric hook-up, water and CDP will still be available. (Reduced pitch rate to reflect this)**
Minstead Manor Farm campsite is a quiet, hideaway site, positioned away from any roads or houses. The slightly sloping grass site is surrounded by fields and overlooks a trout lake (please contact us for details of fly fishing permits). At only an acre, we can accommodate 5 caravans, and a maximum of 8 tents, which we hope ensures a friendly and peaceful atmosphere. We have facilities including electric hook-up, toilets (new in 2011), showers, washing up area and freezer.
The site is established on a working farm: there are sheep in the neighbouring fields, and lambs from late spring time.
We welcome dogs, but they must be kept on leads at all times due to the livestock mentioned above. A short walk is available, and for longer routes, Highland Water Inclosure is about ½ mile away, giving access to cycle routes and endless walking opportunities.
Booking in advance is crucial
We are open from 1st April - 31st October.
We require caravans/motorhomes to be members of the Camping & Caravanning Club.
No groups please.
Please contact us by email* or phone to enquire about bookings and 2014 prices. For tents, we need to check dimensions, so please have this info available. All standard pitches are 6m x 6m, with 2 XL pitches of 7m x 8m.
*we do our best to reply to all emails within 24 hours but if your enquiry is urgent, please ring!
