About the campsite

Common questions about our campsite

We have a unisex shower and toilet block with a plentiful supply of hot water and also a separate family shower room with toilet which is ideal for families with young children. We have undercover washing facilities consisting of 2 x sink and draining board stations. 

Our hot water and showers are included in your booking, however we do ask you to be environmentally conscious and use water responsibly. 

In the consideration of every guest's enjoyment we have a strict no noise policy between the hours of 10pm and 9am.  

BBQ's are allowed, but they must be raised off the ground so not to cause damage to the grass. 

Fires are only allowed in a fire pit, which must be clearly raised off the ground. We do ask that you do not take wood from the surrounding area (there are plenty of places that sell firewood nearby) and that you dispose of any debris responsibly. 

We do not sell charcoal or firewood on site, however there are quite a few places in the nearby town of Buxton where you can pick some up. 

Your pitch/pod is accessible from 3pm on the day of your arrival. 

We ask that you vacate your pitch/pod by 11am on the day of your departure.

During quieter times this may be possible, but please ask a member of our team before leaving as we may need you to park in another location on site. 

About the pitches

Some common questions about camping at our campsite

All of our camping pitches are without electric hook up. 

Unfortunately we do not accept caravans or large motor homes.  We are happy to accept small campervans no larger than 5.3 metres length and 2 metres wide (roughly a VW size) on our site. 

Our pitches are designed to accommodate one tent (up to a 4/5 person size tent) and one vehicle, please note that your tent AND vehicle have to fit within the pitch perimeter of 9m x12m.  

We normally try to limit the number of guests and cars on site (which is even more important than ever with the current Covid 19 pandemic) so if your family/group are travelling in more than one vehicle to the site you will need to book a pitch per vehicle regardless of the number of tents.

About the pods

Some common questions about staying in our camping pods

The pods have lighting and heating, there is a single power point in each pod ideal for charging a phone or similar appliance. 

Cooking is not permitted inside the pods, but it is possible on the covered veranda, provided the stove is raised off the ground. BBQ's are allowed outside the pods, again as long as they are raised off the ground. 

Bedding is not provided, the pods are unfurnished. Think of the pods as a replacement for your tent, you will need to bring everything you would bring if you were camping, except for your tent!
