Camping Season – Easter To October Half-Term
Glamping Season – Open All Year


Our tranquil Nottinghamshire campsite is set at the foot of our 2 acre property, surrounded by fields and a wild garden. It’s a beautiful, peaceful space suitable for up to 15 pitches. We limit the number of campers so we can offer generous pitch sizes so you can enjoy a bit more space. We want your stay to be special and offer a number of features which we think make a big difference.

  • Glamping available in cosy Romany style caravan.
  • Freshly renovated shower and toilet facilities.
  • Campfires allowed on our 4 fire sites.
  • BBQ’s allowed. Ask for bricks to protect the grass.
  • Dogs, awnings, gazebos and extra cars are FREE
  • Free pick up from local transport (with notice).
  • Option to book the whole site, great for parties.
  • Fresh local produce available.
  • Under-18s staying without an adult are welcome.
  • Small wooded area, perfect for your hammock.

There is no electricity on the field.
Large camper vans, caravans, commercial and twin-axle vehicles are not allowed.


The toilet and shower block has been freshly renovated.


You can hire the main campsite for your exclusive use and we have had some lovely weddings, milestone birthday parties and friends get-togethers.
As we have neighbours and the Annexe site is just in the next field, it is not suitable for very rowdy groups.
Please be aware our Annexe visitors will be sharing the showers with you.  They have their own toilets.


We welcome small camper vans up to a maximum length of 5m (LWB VW Transporter or similar) onto our field.

Unfortunately we cannot accept anything larger as there is a tight corner restricting access.

We currently do not offer electric hook-ups, hard standing pitches or chemical waste disposal.

Half the fun of camping is taking the chance to enjoy some great food. As well as a lot of local produce available in the area we have our own veg garden and fruit trees and you can buy seasonal vegetables and home-made jams and chutneys on site. Andy’s delicious homemade bread is a favourite!

We also rent out BBQs with coals and sell firewood to make a campfire, both come with free marshmallows, but you do have to find your own toasting stick! Simply add the extras when you make your booking!
