We've collated some frequently asked questions for our guests to help you understand our offering.

  • QUIET HOURS: Please respect all guests on-site by adhering to our quiet hour's policy. We ask that you keep the noise down from 10pm and not play any music after this time. Please also keep any music at a low level through the day.

We have a self check-in system in place. There's a map and notice board on the right as you enter the site. Please pull up in the parking bay and look for your name and pitch number on the sheet in the window. There's a map so you can see where to find your pitch.

If you need help, there's a phone number on the sheet, or info is available from the bar/kiosk next to the visitor car park from 4:30pm onwards.

We will not have mains electricity or hookup points for the start of this season and need to run our bar/kiosk from a silent generator until at least September (we are at the mercy of Northern PowerGrid and awaiting connection).

Lighting in the toilets, showers, glamping tents and bollard lighting are solar generated.

Please bring a means to charge your phones or run a travel hair dryer etc from your car or from a solar lantern such as this.
