COVID-19 update

We are currently not taking any bookings for tents/camping until further notice.

We will update this page as and when we progress. Many thanks.

Our caravan and camping site will be re-opening from Wednesday 15 July and we are now accepting bookings.

Ensuring the safety of our customers is very important to us and we will be adding additional measures to ensure the safety of the site including additional cleans in shower and toilet facilities.

VAT reduction - from 15 July 2020 until 12 January 2021, the UK government will cut VAT from 20% to 5% on hospitality, hotel and holiday accommodation including caravan and camping sites.

The site is open all year round.
