The property is also home to the family running it and would expect people to respect that this is their home as well as their business.
Zero tolerance to threats or abuse to family members or staff.If the family feels threatened or uncomfortable they reserve the right to ask fellow campers/guests to leave the premises.
Arrival is to be after 12 in the afternoon until 7pm.If you are arriving later then that please have the courtesy to inform us so that we would know when to expect you as such and be able to direct you to your allocated pitch.
We are constantly and progressively making new improvements.We have ample space for camping and for the campervans,motorhomes,caravans as well with electric points.We have now implemented 2 toilets ;1 Gents and 1 Ladies and a shower and will be implementing more.The sizes of the toilets and shower are small and as of at the moment we are not able to extend them as this is as per guidelines to us .Expansion can only be done at a later time .There is a tap and hose provided for the campsite.As this is a no frills campsite and a very basic campsite,there is no pot washing facility and no hand washing facility.However we have electric hook ups and campers are encouraged to wash pots,brush teeth etc within their pitch area.For hot water with the electric we provide you are able to boil water with a electric kettle etc.Please read the rules and guidelines we give you on arrival.The facts are as it is and we are working with our legal team to come to some form of strategy with Council etc for further permission and expansion at a later date which would probably sometime in 2022.So at the moment the situation of the toilets and shower are as it stands ;with the sizes and the quantity . For the campsite toilets,for hygiene purposes we encourage campers to bring their own toiletries such as toilet rolls ,hand sanitisers.If possible ,we would encourage campers to bring their own portable toilet and shower.This is just for their own comfort if they do not like sharing facilities with others.PLEASE BRING ALONG A TORCH LIGHT FOR THE USE OF THE TOILETS AND SHOWER IN THE EVENING/NIGHT and when walking through certain areas.we have no lights in the toilets just yet as we had said we are waiting further implementation and when we want to expand more toilets etc then we would have to look into the electrics for it etc.
As we do not provide the toilet rolls for the campers ,empty rolls should be cleared by the campers responsible for it.We clean toilets and the shower but would emphasise on the campers to clean up after themselves as we would appreciate that since we give respect to our fellow customers that they give us respect as well.As for the shower ,there is a regulator on it.If you do not know how to use it please ask.No point complaining about it after you have left.If you do not let us know then how are we to help?
There is an ELSAN for campervans,caravans,motorhomes.And we encourage that those with campervans,caravans and motorhomes that if they have their own toilet and shower facility to use their own if possible.We have electric hook up but water is shared.Not a full service pitch.
Pub toilets are available but can only be used by campers if they are dining at the pub because these toilets are for the public that come specifically to the pub/restaurant for food and drinks.
We emphasise that campers must not dump unwanted airbeds,chairs or similar items at all and take them home with them.We also emphasise that campers must dispose of rubbish in a proper black bin bag.We are always at hand to assist.We have commercial bins buts we provide non commercial bins to campers so that we would be able to disperse accordingly rubbish into the proper allocated commercial bins as such.
Trains do pass by but not often and at times steam trains do pass by as well.
There is an old church nearby and it has a clock that gives out the lovely sound of chimes in this quite countryside.
