The Owner Says
Its just like camping used to be, but don't think we' are left in the past, we have a newly built bathroom with hot showers and real flushing toilets, 4G mobile phone reception is available on most networks and we also have free, fast wi-fi across the whole site, for those that need to keep in touch with the outside world
Our new facilities block has an under cover wash up area and all lighting and phone charging lockers are solar powered and there is also a campers freezer for your ice blocks.
Breakfast rolls are even available to be delivered direct to your tent at the weekends.
Camping wouldn't be camping without a campfire and we have fire pits for your use and plenty of wood available to purchase on site.
There is nothing better than cosying up around a roaring campfire for a bit of stargazing and being so close to a designated dark sky observation point, the night sky's can be truly stunning.
