These rules have been created for the benefit of all our campsite users. Please abide by them and enjoy your stay with us.
OBSERVE THE SPEED LIMIT. The speed limit is 5mph over the entire campsite and access roads at ALL TIMES. In the interests of safety, particularly children and animals: YOU MUST ALWAYS DRIVE WITH CARE. We operate a zero-tolerance policy over dangerous driving and offenders will be asked to leave the site. Please avoid excessive and unnecessary use of vehicles across the site, such as driving to and from the facilities, especially after 11pm or when the ground is wet.
Loud parties are not acceptable on site at any time. Our noise curfew is 23:00 and radios, TVs and car engines must also be switched off by this time – remember that sound carries very easily in an open environment. Please show consideration to other people at all times.
General bad or inappropriate behaviour anywhere on site will not be tolerated. We treat wilful misuse and damage or destruction of any property anywhere on site very seriously and offenders will be dealt with accordingly. Persistent offenders will be required to leave the site.
All farm buildings, barns, sheds and old clay work structures are strictly out of bounds. Please remember that you are on private property and must respect all other signs.
PITCHING – Please be aware that Fire Safety Regulations state there should be a 6-metre gap between each unit so please observe this when pitching, particularly in our undesignated Top Field. If there is an issue of proximity let us know and do not confront other campers. Anyone we consider to be unacceptably close to another camper will be asked to move.
On EHU pitches, put your unit in the CENTRE of your pitch, NOT to one side, so allowing maximum space between you and your neighbour. Park cars alongside or in front. Pitch tidily keeping everything, including vehicles and windbreaks, well within the yellow boundary posts. Please avoid using any of our posts or fences to anchor your tents or for your washing lines.
No empty caravans or tents to be left on site unattended for long periods of time. Washing of caravans, boats or equipment on site is not permitted.
KEEP YOUR CHILDREN SAFE. Parents and Guardians take careful note: whilst on site you are fully responsible for the behaviour of children and minors in your care. You must ALWAYS be aware of their whereabouts and activities. Children are expected to remain on the campsite fields, unless accompanied by a responsible adult. The surrounding woodland, facilities buildings, farm, shop and garden centre are NOT play areas.
PLAY AREAS – The play area is for the enjoyment of younger children and we expect the equipment to be used appropriately. Children under 8 years old must be supervised by a responsible adult at all times. There is a separate area specifically for ball games adjacent to the Events Field.
Please do not allow your children to congregate and play in any of the facilities, especially the laundry and washing up areas.
Our showers and toilet facilities are free to use, please leave them in a condition you would wish to find them. Our facilities are cleaned daily and during this time they will be closed for public use. However, there will always be an alternative facilities block to use on site. Children under 10 years old must be supervised by a responsible adult whilst using the showers and wash cubicles. We expect our cleaning and on-site staff to be treated with respect and consideration at all times.
RUBBISH – Please be diligent and responsible when disposing of your rubbish. Use the correct bins and separate general waste, food, dry mixed recycling, glass and ashes.
WASTE FOOD – Do not throw any waste food or containers into the hedges and undergrowth. Use the designated bins provided.
WASTE WATER – All waste water and elsan waste must be collected in a suitable container and emptied at a proper drain point provided. Under no circumstances should it be poured into a ditch or dumped on your pitch as you leave.
For their own safety, children are not permitted to ride their bicycles anywhere on site unless they are proficient in cycling as if on-road or accompanied by an adult. When using their bikes, please ensure that your children leave their bicycles in the designated bike racks provided so as not to cause an obstruction or inconvenience to other people. Using the farmyard and access tracks as riding circuits is not permitted.
bBQS AND CAMPFIRES
Barbeques are permitted but burning receptacles must be raised off the ground. Please be extremely careful when disposing of ash – you must use the specific bins provided.
Small open fires are permitted in firepits only. Beware, fires are an extreme hazard and excessive smoke can be a nuisance to others. Your fire must be fully contained and under close supervision at all times. We sell suitable fire wood in the shop so please do not help yourself to any wood found on site or in the surrounding woodland- breaking branches from trees will be treated as vandalism. We reserve the right to request a fire be extinguished should we feel it is unacceptable in any way.
ABSOLUTELY NO SMOKING near hay or straw, farm buildings, farm vehicles or in facilities buildings.
DOGS AND ANIMALS
Dogs – We welcome dogs on site but they must be kept on a lead at all times (2 metres MAX.), and must not be allowed to roam freely. Please ensure that you always clean up after them – bins are provided. You must be responsible for your dogs and not leave them unattended on site at any time, even for short periods; dogs can get very distressed in strange environments.
Animals – Under no circumstances should you allow your children to shout at or chase the farm animals or birds. Please do not feed the animals, even if you think the food is suitable for them, unless given express permission by a member of staff. Unrestricted diets can cause them serious health problems.
The owners will not accept any liability in respect of any person, or the property of any person using the site.
Our campsite is on a working farm in a very rural area. Please always follow the Countryside Code.
The campsite and surrounding areas are private property and the management always reserve the right of entry. Any person wilfully disregarding these rules risks being asked to leave the site.
