We divide our paddocks up into 6 metre strips and sub divide those into 6 metre pitches. This is for your tent and cars! Extra space can be bought by 1 metre strips. This is designed to give everyone their own space and those wishing to bring their portable mansions and plethora of comforts may pay for what they use!


Work out your pitch size!

First decide which tent or tents you are going to bring and how many cars you will come in. Then use the guides to help you work out the size pitch you may need.

Please be realistic in calculating your needs so we can reserve the necessary size of of pitch. Most people don't allow for guy ropes and it may not be possible to extend your pitch at busy periods.

If you are unsure of your tent size UK Campsite have a good list of tents and their floor plans that may help.
