Sorry we cannot allow dogs or any pets, except guide dogs (but we can recommend some local kennels for your pooch). This restriction is placed upon us by the landowner. Binny, the camp dog, is the only exception and she is usually available for cuddles.
Families with school age kids love the school holidays as the kids are sure of making new friends. Couples or families with pre-school families generally prefer the quiet mid-weeks outside of the school holidays. If you are planning on bringing an adult only group then you will have to come outside of the school hols – weekends are very popular with groups.
There is a hair dryer in the shower facility. (We have limited electricity supply on site, 1 hairdryer takes up 15% of our capacity.
There is a charging facility in the tea and cake lobby tent.
Not at present, however within 2 miles there are shops for most things you could want including an award winning farm shop and a convenience store. Asda and sainsburies also deliver to camp if you don’t want to drive. In season, farms close by offer asparagus, strawberries and other produce. If you wish to make a larger purchase a 24 hour supermarket is available only 15 minutes drive away.
You can do this, all you have to do it e-mail us their names and the dates of your stay and we will try our best to get you near each other.
Cooking is on a gas hob, wood stove, or BBQ. Storage is available secure from insects etc, and there is a cool box in the tents with replaceable ice packs.
The nearest pub is in Stamford Bridge (3 in fact, The 3 Cups is the closest and nicest) only a mile away, however the best pubs are a little further afield.
Yes, we do manage the life cycle of biting insects in the summer near the lobby tent, but it is as well to bring insect repellent and repellent candles. (naked candles outside the tent).
No although we do offer a laundry service at extra cost.
That varies, leaves do not come completely off the trees until the last week of November, making it more sheltered. But the weatehr is becomming increasingly more unpredictable.
Yes. York Rail and Coach Station is approximately 12 miles away (with very good connections from the South, Scotland and Liverpool and Manchester) A bus (number 10) from the Station (depending upon what time you arrive, other wise you will need a taxi or bicycle) takes you to Stamford Bridge only 1.5 miles away. Our recommended taxi service is Streamline and the telephone number is 01904 656565. As we are in a rural area, any extensive exploration of the area does demand a car, however we do hire bikes. We are close to the National Cycle Network route 66 that goes between York and Hull and linking with other routes.
We do provide facilities for young ones, such as cots (with insect netting) and high chairs. You might want to think twice about coming with very young ones in early spring or late autumn / winter when the nights can get very chilly. Parents at that time tend to keep the baby in bed with them to make sure they are warm.
The woodland is on a private estate and not open to the public, the only people are guests, staff and gamekeepers and foresters working the woodland. However, keep your valuables with you, as your car if you bring one, cannot be parked near your tent. It’s still camping so it’s best if you leave the diamonds and laptop at home.
Unfortunately at this present time we can’t take bookings by phone, we use World Pay to ensure your card details are kept safe.
