We have separate, individual pitches of all shapes and sizes!
So whether you have a Tent, Caravan, Motorhome or Campervan we have used our own experiences and designed pitches to accommodate you. If you would like to discuss your requirements just give us a call!
All of our pitches are level and have a gravel base for all weather use. All (except one!) pitches have electric hook-up points (EHU) and electric is available as an additional extra. All pitches are located close to a fresh water fill-up point. Although there are no pitches with individual ‘used water drainage’ points the campsite is small and our communal used water disposal point is close to all pitches.
Most of our motorhome pitches can easily accommodate a vehicle length of up to 9 metres and vehicle weight of 7.5 tonnes (7,500 kg) which typically suits a standard 6-Berth (or under) motorhome vehicle. The width of these pitches does vary slightly but all have a private side area for your private recreational use during your stay.
Some pitches have a specific, non grass space for a ground based awning so if you need to use an awning of this type it’s important to book a ‘Motorhome with standalone awning’ pitch during the online booking process and describe your awning in your booking. All of our motorhome pitches are slightly different so if you have a particular request please add this to the ‘special request’ field when making a booking and we will endeavour to accommodate it if we can.

Our definition of a campervan is a smaller camping vehicle, usually up to 6 metres in length, which is specifically created (or suitably adapted) and registered for use as a recreational camping vehicle. We have two campervan pitches that have been designed for smaller vehicles such as these. One has an optional electric supply and the other one does not. Both have hard standing gravel for parking the campervan with a side area of red coloured rubber chippings, a soft based area which can accommodate a groundsheet, a ‘drive away’ awning or ‘roll-out’ sunshade awning. Both pitches have a maximum vehicle length of 6 metres to include any bike rack or rear storage box. A question sometimes asked is whether a campervan can also book a motorhome pitch, the answer is yes! (but a motorhome over 6 metres shouldn’t book a campervan pitch!!!)
Caravan with Car pitches
Our individual caravan with car pitches have been designed to give more width to enable you to comfortably park your caravan alongside your towing vehicle. There’s an awning space of around 4 metres by 6 metres on four of our five caravan pitches to support a full sized caravan awning if required. Rather than grass, the awning bases are either soft rubber chippings or fine pea gravel to enable awning use in all weathers. These awning surfaces can be used like grass with standard pegs though we would recommend the use of sturdier rock pegs for extra grip.
All caravan pitches have electric hook-up and are located close to a fresh water fill-up point. Four of our caravan pitches are based at the rear of the campsite close to the children’s play field area and dedicated dog walk area. The maximum length of caravan that can be accommodated in these four pitches is 7.5 metres, including the tow-hitch. If your caravan is longer than 7.5 metres please call us before booking so that we can review larger pitch options for you.

We have three individual private tent pitches on the campsite. Two of those are designed for medium sized, (for example 4-man or 6-man sized tents) and ideal for parties of up to six people. One pitch is designed specifically for tourers travelling on a bike or on foot and is a perfect size for those camping in smaller tents (for example 2-man or 3-man sized tents) All of our tent pitches are purpose built, secluded and individual rather than ‘open-space / free-form’ camping so we have outlined below the maximum dimensions of the tent base that you need to pitch on when using these pitches. If you are considering making a booking please double check your tent base size to ensure it meets these size requirements first!
Our Tent Bay #7 is designed for tourers travelling by bike or on foot so it does not have a car parking space located within the pitch like the others do. This tent pitch is medium sized, dedicated to you and secluded. It is surrounded by trees and shrubs, very sheltered and suitable for smaller tents up to 400cm by 400cm. The top layer of this pitch base is soft, green rubber chippings, which is an all-weather surface, perfect for daily use. You can use standard tent pegs on this surface the same as you would with grass. The pitch also has seating for two, a lockable outdoor bench seat box for the storage of possessions and a bike rack/stand. This pitch comes with the use of a small fridge freezer, located indoors within the campsite communal facility block, perfect for keeping your food, drinks and cool packs chilled during your stay.
(! This pitch does not have a parking space located within the pitch so if you need a car parking space one will be allocated on the campsite and as close by as possible. Please be sure to mention this in your booking under the ‘special requests’ section. There is no additional charge to bring a car with this pitch)
Our Tent Bay #9 is designed for campers travelling by car. It has one car parking space located adjacent to the tent area. This pitch is a large private corner plot surrounded by trees and is very sheltered. It is suitable for medium sized tents up to 450cm by 700cm.
Accessed by a pathway from the car parking space you can see the tent pitch in the photograph has a top layer of dark green soft rubber chippings, made from shredded recycled tyres! which is an all-weather surface topping, perfect for daily use and great in wet or damp conditions as it repels water. You can use standard tent pegs on this surface, the same as you would with grass because the under layers are standard soil/earth though we do recommend the use of rock pegs for extra grip.
The tent base is alongside a small outdoor grass area for dining and cooking together with the allocated gravel car parking space. The pitch comes with a dedicated under-counter fridge freezer allocated to you during your stay located within the indoor camper facilities block. If your tent base is larger than 4.5 metres by 7 metres please call first to check whether this pitch could accommodate your requirements.
An all weather favorite! our Tent Bay #12 is a great outdoor space! Located within a corner plot and surrounded by trees for additional shelter this large, secluded pitch also comes with a dedicated 3-sided barn for your own private use and two car parking spaces! (or car plus trailer).
The tent base area is suitable for medium sized tents up to 600cm by 600cm. The same as pitch #9 detailed above the top layer of the tent base area is green soft rubber chippings which is an all-weather surface topping and you would use standard tent pegs with this surface though we do recommend the use of rock pegs for extra grip. Within the private barn you have your own large fridge freezer, picnic bench, two reclining outdoor seats, washing line with pegs and a range of bins for recycling and general waste. The barn also has a roll-down awning covering one half of the open side to add extra weather protection if needed, If your tent base is larger than 6 metres by 6 metres please call first to check whether this pitch could accommodate your requirements.
