Camping and Caravanning

General layout of Campsite General layout of Campsite

We regret to inform you that, due to the Covid-19 pandemic, we have decided to close the campsite until further notice. Furthermore, we have decided to stay closed for the rest of the season.

We will be contacting everyone who has made a booking to discuss how to proceed. If you have a booking, are reading this and have not heard from us, please send us an email and we can discuss things.

We are sorry for any inconvenience caused by this action.

We have set aside about 2 acres of our meadow for camping and caravanning. We have a total of 20 pitches available, 15 are only for tents and a further five pitches can be booked for caravan/motorhomes or tents. Please note: we have no electric hook-up on site at all. 8 of the tent only pitches are situated in the Glades. These are individual enclosed pitches surrounded by shrubs which give a greater degree of privacy than the Open Field pitches. The Glamping Bell Tent is situated in one of the Glades. The remaining 12 pitches are in the Open Field situation. Caravan/motorhomes are booked as "up grades" to the Open Field pitches.

The Glades: enclosed, individual plots. Eight of our camping pitches are in our glades, which we are developing as more secluded plots, each surrounded by native species shrubs and having a fire pit for open fires. Seven of the Glades have pedestrian access only, though vehicles can be parked nearby, the 8th Glade is accessible with a car or motorhome and is, therefore, suitable for visitors with limited mobility.

Glamping Bell Tent. One of the glades has a fully equiped Bell tent, with a real double bed and a personal cooking facility as well as the fire pit. The tent has bedding and towels for two provided along with most of what you may need for minimal luggage holiday.

Open Field Pitches. The remaining 12 pitches are in an open field situation. 5 of these, normally in the First Paddock, are primarily for caravans and motorhomes, but may be booked for tents if there are no "tent only" pitches available. Please note: we have no electric hook-up on site at all.

Facilities There are composting toilets, al fresco warm shower, washing up facilities with warm water and a chemical toilet disposal unit on the main site area. Conventional toilets and shower, fridge/freezer and microwave are available at the main house, approx 50m from the site.

Single Sex and Group Booking We are aware that some campsite will not accept single sex or group booking on the assumption that they will be noisy and disruptive. We welcome single sex and group booking with the proviso that they will not be noisy and disruptive. So if you wish to have a quite camping holiday with some friends on a family campsite with a 10pm minimum noise curfew, you are more than welcome at Bridge House. If you wish to have a raucus and drunken party, please book elsewhere.

Open Season. The Campsite is open from Easter until the end of September (ground conditions permitting). Because the site is liable to flooding in winter, these dates may need to be changed at short notice.

WARNING: The entrance to the site is quite tight; large double-axle caravans will have great difficulty getting in, though it is not impossible. Caravan movers are advisable for large vans.

The on-line booking system shows availability, including closure due to poor ground conditions. You make a booking and pay the deposit required to secure the pitch. The system guides you through the booking process but there may still be a few glitches, so please be patient. You can always ring us if you have problems.

Our terms and conditions for both camping and Bed & Breakfast can be viewed during the booking process and have to be agreed to complete a booking.
