Our Camping Lodges provide a comfortable and calm environment for your holiday. We do not allow children, TVs or loud music.

The lodges are set in about 4 acres of parkland with a lake. You are welcome to fish the lake which is stocked with various coarse fish including carp, but no keepnets or barbed hooks please. Alternatively relax in a hammock with a good book.

There are 2 rentable lodges on the site each furnished with a double bed, dining table and chairs plus comfortable chairs for relaxing. There is a fridge, kettle, bbq and all you need in the way of crockery, cutlery and cooking equipment. A 3rd lodge is used as a communal kitchen and is equipped with a full sized cooker, so no nasty cooking smells in your accommodation.

There is a toilet, 2 showers and a washing up sink in a block a short distance away.
