The toilet and shower block is accessible with keys after estate opening hours. If you won’t be arriving before staff leave at 5pm then you’ll need to arrange to collect your keys in advance, by calling the office on 028 6773 8118.

Glamping Pods: Departure is by 11am to allow for cleaning.

Parking

To protect the natural beauty of the site, parking is available in designated areas away from tent pitches, but near enough so it’s not too difficult to carry your camping gear from your car.

Staff will advise where unloading is permitted for the Glamping pods.

Dogs/pets

Dogs are welcome on site (maximum of two per party), but please notify us at the time of booking. 

We have three dog-friendly glamping pods. Please ensure that you book the correct one if you wish to bring a dog on your holiday.

Quiet please

We ask that our visitors are considerate to their neighbours at all times, but ‘quiet please’ between 11pm and 7am.

Due to the size of our pitches, tent dimensions need to be given at the time of booking. This will allow us to place you on the most appropriate pitch.
