COVID-19 (coronavirus)

We Are open!!!

Things are starting to look a lot more optimistic, and as lockdown restrictions start to ease we are happy to welcome visitors again.

We have introduced a few changes to how we run things in order to keep everyone safe, such as restricting the amount of guests on site at any one time, and allocating guests their own bathroom. Rest assured that none of these precautions will affect the peace and tranquility of your stay.

Please be mindful that the campsite is situated on our working farm, which is both our home and our place of work, any restrictions in place are for both your safety and the safety of our family. 

We will as always be around to help should you need us to be, but we will keep our distance where possible and leave you to enjoy the freedom of your trip.


If we keep our fingers crossed and things run to plan we will be welcoming guests back to the farm from the 3rd of July.

We are now taking bookings for dates after this time, so if you need something in the diary to look forward too why not treat yourself to an escape to nature.

Of course we will have a very lenient cancelation policy so if for any reason we can't host your stay we'll move your booking to the next available date.

If you have any questions regarding your stay please don't hesitate to get in touch. Contact us here >


We may be getting back to normal, but we still need to take precautions to ensure the safety of our guests. So in order to keep everyone safe we've put in place a few new rules.

Camping pitches will be limited to two groups, each pitch group will be allocated a bathroom to use throughout their stay. Please stick to you allocated bathroom.

Hand soap will be provided in every bathroom, please remember to wash your hands regularly.

The bell tent will be allocated its own bathroom, fire pit and cooking facilities.

The bothy now has its own connected bathroom, we will leave a 24 hour window in-between each reservation and will it be thoroughly cleaned in-between guests.

We ask all guests to be mindful when using communal spaces, and if you have any health concerns during your stay please alert us immediately and follow the latest government advice.
