Bring you tent and camping equipment and enjoy a unique pitch which is next to our friendly alpacas.

Pitch 1 can accommodate a medium tent of up to 4 people and pitch 2 is a small tent of up to a maximum of 2 people. Pitch 3 is dog friendly and tucked away in our secluded woodland. You can enjoy fabulous views of the majestic Thowlestaine Hill and fall asleep to the sounds of the nearby stream. Each pitch also benefits from having its own fire pit, great for huddling around whilst gazing at the starry night sky.

You can enjoy a touch of luxury in our bell tent, a great alternative for those that donít fancy the traditional camping experience. Facilities include 1 double, 2 singles, crockery/cutlery, outdoor camping kitchen and an outdoor patio area for al fresco dining when the sun is shining.
