Pitches - general information:-
Pitches are set in individual clearings,
scattered about on 15 acres of mixed woodland and meadow land,
with all sorts of wild flowers and fruit, trees, birds and butterflies.
( 15 pitches on lower woodland site ) (15 pitches on top meadow site )
Each pitch or clearing has a name, with a meaning - history/pitch identity/song/book/travel,etc.
 i.e. Strawberry Field (wild strawberries),

We have a few sibling pitches which means that they are attached to a main pitch with a campfire.
They can be used as an overflow for those in your party if the main pitch isn't big enough.

Pitches are allocated for size of tent/group:
but ask at time of booking
if you have a preference for woodland pitches or meadow,
(sometimes, we can re-arrange the weekly pitch plan,
as we do for regulars who ask for their favourite pitches).

Give us a few details of your dates, expected time of arrival and departure.
Also group number, tent berth size, car registrations and visitors.
We will then email you more information and a quote.

Depending on weather and pitch conditions,
we will try to match you up to the best site for your booking.

Please don't move pitch without asking, as it may be booked.

Appreciation goes to all those campers who leave the pitch tidy,
free of litter, wood splinters on the grass (for grass cutting).
We also value those who leave the rustic tables and chairs
as they found them on the pitches they were intended for.
We also value are those of you who let us know if you have to cancel your booking.
