Q. Do I need to bring anything with me?

A. Just your sense of fun, a torch, toothbrush and a towel. Wellies and raincoats are a good idea and a blanket is lovely if you feel the cold and want to wrap up outside by the fire at night.

Q. What’s in our pitch?

A. All beds and bedding are provided in your pitch, as well as lighting and heating. You have exclusive use of an undercover area with water, power, table, seating, fridge (some with small freezer compartment), plates, cutlery, utensils and fire pit with one night’s firewood for the all important fire! There is a kettle and you may also have a small gas burner if you request one.

Q. What time can we arrive / when do we have to leave?

A. Your pitch will be ready for you from 4pm on the day of your booking, with departure from your pitch by 10.00am. However you are very welcome in our lounge / restaurant before & afterwards.

Q. Is there parking?

A. Yes. We have our own large, free car park.

Q. Are there power points?

A. Yes. All pitches have electrical sockets for lighting, heating and phone chargers.

Q. What if it Rains?

A. Welcome to England! Sadly we cannot control the weather. However, each pitch has an undercover self – catering and seating area so you can still enjoy being outside, even if the wonderful British weather does its worst. The lovely restaurant and bar make the perfect haven for anyone needing to defrost and dry out!

Q. Can we use confetti?

A. Sorry but we do not allow paper or metal confetti on our site (after four years of picking up millions of tiny foil hearts / phalluses etc.) We do allow the use of natural confetti i.e. flower petals which we can provide if requested.

Q. Can we bring our dogs?

A. We welcome friendly, well behaved dogs for a small surcharge as long as they are kept under close control at all times and any waste is disposed of.

A. Yes. We have a fully licensed bar in The Terrace Restaurant. You can also set up your own self – serve bar down at you pitch which we can stock for you.

Q. Can we book the restaurant for our group one evening?

A. Yes, we love to cater for groups staying with us. We can also arrange music & meal evenings that are always fantastic fun, in addition to many other great activities from murder mystery evenings, naked life drawing to Recording studio sessions!
