I would like a quiet pitch please. Which one is best?

The site is promoted as a small yet quiet site. All pitches are quiet. Due to it's longitudinal shape there are no 'out of the way' or 'tucked in the corner' locations. There are no pitches 'under the trees'.

I want to pitch my tent with my friend please.

The tent pitching area is a large area of grass with a track running through it, no formal pitching plan. [See the site map found on our webpage] The visitor selects their part of the grass. Work it out amongst yourselves, if one arrives early....bagsie a bit of grass nearby and use one of our reserved signs, held in the office, to secure your friends pitch. Numbers of tents or people need to be aware of our noise/group booking policy. Anti-social behaviour or noise after 10.00pm will not be tolerated during your stay.

Do you allow dogs onto your site?

We allow well behaved dogs on site. They must be on a lead at all times; picking up after your dog and dispose of any doggy doo in our refuse bins is statutory. Failure to comply will result in eviction from the site. Our static caravans have a no-pets policy.

Do you charge for pets on site?

There is no charge for dogs that we allow on site.

With no mobile signal, what happens in an emergency out of hours?

There is a pay phone on the ablutions wall. Using this, members of the public can phone for the emergency services. This is a free service and does not require coins. There is an out of hours button to phone the site managers house for other emergencies or incidents. Note: phoning for citronella candles at 9.00pm is neither an emergency or an incident.
