have you actually phoned them? I wouldn't consider 2 people to be a group to be honest.

We have to agree with brickiemum that 2 people doesnt constitute a group but it would be worthwhile phoning them just to clarify what they mean. You could always state to them that you're not a couple just two friends who enjoy camping.

without seeing the wording it sounds more like they are not allowing stag / hen group kind of parties with the associated activities that tend to come with groups like that!.

but as other say, the wording needs to be checked.

I too am thinking the restriction is for same sex groups of more than 2 people, to prevent hen and stag parties from disturbing other campers.

However, I could be wrong.

I came across same sex couples at camp sites all the time.

Camping in the same tent? If your in separate tents, make 2 bookings!

If you have any doubts, call them up and ask!
