The Shower and Toilet Block: Opened in August 2020.  There are separate female, male and disabled/family sections; plus an outside washdown shower and stainless steel washing-up sink.  Tokens are available for the shower meters (coins will not work).  Electric Shower Tokens are £1;  Campers must not use coins, they shut down the meters.  Please do not dispose of wet wipes down the wc.

Campsite: Tents, trailer tents, campervans (such as VW T5) and smaller sized motorhomes are welcome. Sorry, we don't have pitches for caravans or room for very large motorhomes ('A' class @7 metre plus; and RV).  

Hook Ups  There are electric hook-ups on the main campsite.  It is not possible to book hook-ups in advance.

We do not allow campfires on the ground because they damage the grass (the campsite is part of a working farm).

In the interests of other campers, dogs should be kept under close control or preferably on a lead.  They are not allowed in the shower and toilet block.

The campsite slopes gently down towards the sea.  Park conveniently and foc next to your pitch (the adjoining beach car park is £6/day).

We accept contactless and card payments (preferred) or cash.
