General FAQ's

Are you a dog friendly site?

        Yes, we are! All we ask is that you keep your dog under close control and clean up after them. There is no extra charge for your furry family member. Please let us know if you wish to have a dog in a Shepherd Hut.

What size are your pitches?

        Our pitches are listed as being 6m x 6m, however they are in fact slightly larger than this. If you are concerned or require a larger pitch please contact us to discuss the options.

I want to book as a group, is this possible?

       We are currently not accepting group bookings or visitors to campers already on site.

Are BBQ's allowed?

       Yes, we do allow BBQ's. These MUST be raised above the grass on bricks and slabs, we can provide these.  FIRE PITS are now banned from site unless rented from Oakfields Camping.

What are the times for Check In and Check Out?

     Check In is between 3pm and 9pm. Any arrivals after 9.30pm will not be accepted. This is in order to respect those campers with young children on site.

     Check Out is 11am. Please respect these times as this is our time to ensure the pitches are clean and tidy, mow the grass if needed and provide any general maintenance. Particularly in High Season.

I would like to book a Shepherds Hut with children?

Are you open all year?
