The site is perfect for kids with plenty of space for them to run around and play including a large woodland area. 

Everyone loves a campfire! Our fire pits are available to hire and come complete with logs and kindling. Don’t forget to visit our morning coffee shop for hot barista coffee and freshly baked pastries and in the evening remember we are in a designated dark skies area, perfect for stargazing. Everyone is sure to love our 3 adorable Alpacas; Audrey, Dorothy and Ethel who can be found grazing in the field next to the campsite. 

We have a small onsite shop selling basic essentials and there is a good wifi signal across the whole site.



All our pitches are level and each has its own picnic table.  We accept tents, caravans, motorhomes and campervans, with caravans on hard standing and tents on grass. There is a modern 5* shower block with hot showers, a washing up area, washing machine and tumble dryer and 2 large communal fridges. There are several smaller toilet and shower facilities around the site. There is a 10amp electric supply to all caravan pitches and some of the tent pitches. Dogs are welcome at no extra cost we even have a dog washing facility for your four legged friend, which can also be used for cycles or muddy boots.



The beautifully terraced site provides a great selection of level gravel pitches for caravans, each pitch comes with ample parking alongside your caravan and a picnic table.

For motorhome and campervan lovers, we offer a choice of grass or gravel, whichever you choose, the dry-stone walled tiers leave your pitch completely private and surrounded by unbeatable views in an area of unspoilt, natural beauty.

There is an Elson point to dispose your waste and a water hose to wash down your equipment. We have recently installed an eco-friendly sewage system and reed bed. To help protect this we insist on the use of formaldehyde free toilet chemicals, which can be purchased from our onsite shop. If in doubt, please ask at reception.
