Check in time is between 15.00 – 19.00. We advise that you arrive in good time so as to be settled in before dark. On arrival please follow signs to the Foxhole car park – 200 meters away. If there is no one to greet you when you arrive, look out for some grey wooden sign posts and stop in the ‘drop off zone’ to unpack your tent, then set up anywhere in the field. The campsite parking is marked and is about 200m metres away, just follow the sign.  This parking is free but please be advised that should you park anywhere else on the estate, parking charges may apply so do check.

We cannot take responsibility for belongings left in tents. Please keep valuables about your person or kept safely out of view in a locked vehicle.

You are very welcome to bring acoustic instruments to play around the fire but please do not play amplified music on site. If there are children sleeping nearby please consider using the central fire so as not to disturb anyone.
