Toilet/shower blocks and extra facilities

We have three shower and toilet blocks dotted around the campsite to service the different camping areas. To ensure social distancing, we’ve partitioned off areas inside each block. Use of the showers is included in your pitch fee. Disabled toilet and shower facilities are available in the toilet block situated in the 'Vic's Meadow' area of the campsite.

Washing-up areas

To help keep your pots and pans sparkling, we have pot washing facilities available at each of the three shower blocks.

Laundry & drying facilities

You’ll be glad to know you can do your laundry on site. Washing and drying room facilities are situated at the rear of the toilet block in the 'Woodlands' area of the campsite. A second drying room is located at the rear of the 'Whitworths/Woodhouse Meadow' toilet block.

Our washing and drying machines accept £1 coins (£3 wash, £2 dry). We advise bringing coins with you as currently, we are unable to handle cash, as well as washing powder (preferably the eco-friendly kind).

Chemical waste facilities

Our chemical waste facility for campervans is located opposite Woodhouse Meadow/Whitworths toilet block.

Lakeshore access

The campsite has direct access to the lakeshore where you can launch non-powered craft, explore the lakeside beach and go for a paddle or a dip.


There’ll be new notices in place in communal areas and we ask campers to kindly observe these to allow everyone on site to have a relaxing holiday. We’d like to gently remind campers that for the safety of guests and staff, to observe a 2m distance rule at all times where possible.
