Camping Code of Conduct
Camping is charged at £6 and allocated on a first come, first served basis. Tickets can be bought HERE. To make it comfortable and safe for all, we ask the following of you:

  • Please respect other campers and the ground you are camping on: Love thy neighbour!
  • Please take all your camping litter away with you, and dispose of it at home. The litter receptacles we provide are for the onsite catering, and our clear-up of the site. If these arrangements are frustrated it may lead to increased camping fees in the future.
  • No BBQs. No large “Calor gas” style bottle cooking/heating appliances. No open fires. Personal gas stoves are permitted if used responsibly, but we encourage you instead, for the safety of everyone camping, to use the onsite catering facilities we have provided for you or the communal BBQs.
  • Camper vans can be accommodated, but we regret that caravans and large motorhomes cannot. If in doubt, contact us

Do’s and Do Not’s
DO – Come prepared. Warm clothes and sleeping bag (or bags) are a must.
DO – Have fun and behave yourselves. Respect each other, and the Park.
DO – Take your litter away with you, please.
