The Owner Says
The Exclusive Pitch is sited up the lane from the farmyard, in ‘Green Lane Meadow’. The field, and all the facilities within it are solely for your use.
There is a large mowed area with firepit, compost toilet and gas-powered shower. You also have use of the fridge and freezer in the farmyard. Parking is beside your pitch, and campervans are welcome.
Large mowed areaThis is about 14 paces across, with a firepit in the centre. In two little huts just off the pitch are the compost toilet, and the lovely hot gas-powered shower.
Drinking water tapThis is sited beside the shower hut, and has a washing-up sink alongside. There is no hot water tap (because this is proper camping), just ice-cold water, fresh from our bore-hole. Please note, if you wash your face with this first thing in the morning, you will wake up VERY fast.
Car/Campervan ParkingThis field has a stoned gateway leading to the stone parking area. Your car is only a couple of metres from the pitch, but never leaves the hardstanding, so this is our best pitch for campervans, or for those needing easy access to their vehicle.
Rubbish and RecyclingThis is just beside your parking area, so very easy to access. Please recycle all you can.
Fridge, Freezer, Charging Point and Logs/Kindling for SaleThese are available in the farmyard, and are a shared resourse for all the guests staying at Bakesdown Farm Camping. There is no fee for the charging point, but you leave items for charge at your own risk. Logs cost £3 per large bucket, and Kindling is £1.50 a pot.
