Commanding superb views of the beautiful Lym Valley, we have over five acres of camping space, typically comprised of flat or terraced plots sheltered by well-established hedges and mature trees.

The site is located away from major roads and so retains it’s peaceful, rural atmosphere. The site has a small climbing frame and swings for the children and plenty of parking for boats and trailers by prior arrangement only

Dogs are welcome as long as they are on a short lead whilst on the park and under control at all times. There are plenty of footpaths and walks around the campsite to exercise dogs. Over half of our pitches have electric hook-up points. There are numerous drinking water standpipes dotted around the park.

Toilet and washroom facilities are provided by 2 modern, purpose built blocks (and they include laundry and drying facilities). Hairdryers are available in both Men’s and Ladies sections and operate on a 20p coin meter. To avoid excessive queuing, and with conservation of water in mind, our showers also operate on a 20p coin meter – which provides four and a half minutes. We have plenty of 20p pieces so no need to stock up before you arrive. Please note: whilst we do have disabled washroom facilities we believe our park is not appropriate for disabled campers due to its sloping terrain, sloping access points and shale paths. Before making a booking please see our Camping Terms and Conditions below which give you important information about camping with us.

Our on-site shop is stocked with general camping essentials, basic food and BBQ requirements, sweets and drinks and there is a local information section to provide you with details on events and attractions. In the High Season we also have fresh bakeries available. Within the shop we can also charge up your mobile phones/tablets for a small fee. Should our shop be closed for any reason there is a Village Store/Newsagent only 400 yards away which is open 7 days a week and is very well stocked. For additional convenience we provide 24 hr access to freezers located in the washroom facilities and these are free of charge. Please note that these are to re-freeze your ice packs. We also have WiFi available throughout the park and this is available on a pay-per-use basis.

Vehicle access and pedestrian access must always be via designated roads or paths. The speed limit is strictly 5mph.
