As an eco-campsite we like to keep things as simple as possible and encourage recycling and renewable energy. We also like to support local and British business as part of our purchasing policy. With that in mind, most of what you’ll find has been sourced as sensibly and sensitively as possible.
Our on site toilet and shower block is an ex-prison van body consigned for scrap – we thought it was an ideal conversion project as it’s already insulated, wired up for power and washable! The unit is split into two with a separate access flushing toilet to one end and the remaining area set up as a good sized room with double vanity sink and a secure shower and dressing area.
In addition to the shower unit there is a parking area, honesty shop for small essentials such as milk, eggs and logs, washing up area on the camping field (new for 2021) and a fridge/freezer for customer’s use. There are also two water standpipes on site. There is no Elsan disposal facilities as composting loos are provided on each pitch.
There are five pitches on site – three standard tent pitches with their own composting toilets, one basic overnight pitch for a small tent and one furnished bell tent pitch. There is no electric hook up as we are off grid.
Power is available at the shower unit for charging mobile phones and power banks.
We have introduced some changes for 2021 including –
- The option to double up all three hayfield tent pitches for group bookings
- A companion tent pitch for the Coppice Bell Tent exclusively available for bell tent customers to book
- Locally handmade rustic seating for the bell tent campfire
- Acorn, our overnight stop pitch
And we are working hard in the background to get the next few enhancements below up and ready –
- A new washing up and recycling area on the camping field
- An off grid shower on the camping field
- Improved shop facilities
- BBQs for hire
