Magical Open Glade (Easter to October)

Spacious site with a beautiful view for campers with tents. No vehicles on the field so kids can run around and around and around. We don’t take bookings in advance and please don’t come out of shop hours as there is nobody to show you where to go. Our new site is informal without marked pitches, there is a car parking space next to the front field with no vehicles on site, making it a lovely big vehicle free area for families to feel safe letting their children run around. There will be a small amount of pitches behind this field for camper vans and people who would like their cars next to them.
Small Campsite for Special Occasions
We have a small field space available for family gatherings. We have a maximum capacity of 50 people inclusive of children staying on site, with very limited car parking space. Please note if booking this field there would be the additional cost of the shepherds hut which is sited there! and sleeps two adults.
The lane to this field is not suited for lots of traffic going backwards and forwards so is not suitable for lots of day visitors, but is great for a camping event. Amplified music by arrangement only with a curfew of midnight. Please note this is not a party venue.
