Frequently Asked Questions

Do you take large tents?
Yes, but because of their size they attract a premium.

Does the campsite ever flood?
No, we are situated above the river on a slight hill overlooking the town and river valley. We are on limestone brash which drains away very quickly. Do you allow contractors?
Yes, a small number – please contact us for details. 

Do you allow open fires or firepits?
Sorry, no open fires or firepits at all due to fire regulations.

Yes, both in the river and in a nearby lake – day tickets available.

Can I catch a local bus?
