Caravan Park & Camp Site FAQ's
Q. When booking can we select our caravan pitch?
A. Yes. On checking online availability you can select a preferred site, based on your specified requirements and availability. Alternatively if you are booking in person or by telephone, staff can advise you of pitch availability. The selected site will however not be guaranteed until payment has been received. Once payment has been made you will receive an email confirming your booking and site number. A layout map of the caravan pitches can be found by clicking here.
Q. Once we've booked our site can we change our mind and move to another site?
A. No. Since all customers have their pitch allocation specified on their booking receipt, staff cannot relocate customers unless there is another site unoccupied for the duration of the intended stay. Customers who have a special requirement to be close to the amenity block should however speak to staff directly.
Q. If the dates we want to stay appear fully booked but I can find availability for individual nights should I make individual bookings?
A. Please DO NOT make multiple bookings, unless you are prepared to move pitches throughout your stay, as each booking will have a different pitch allocation.
Q. Do you accommodate awnings?
A. Yes. 21 of our 31 serviced hard stand pitches have dedicated concrete awning bases. These bases are a standard size of 3 metres x 2 metres, to allow for pegging down both larger and smaller awnings. We request that at night campers with larger awnings lift any part of their ground sheet that has direct contact with grass, in order to minimise any perimeter ground damage. Wardens reserve the right to request that campers lift their ground sheets accordingly. Currently there is no additional charge for erecting awnings. If campers wish to erect an awning then this must be indicated at the time of booking, in order to allocate an appropriate pitch.
