The campsite is small and we are unable to accomodate large tents and motorhomes. The sizes below are the size of the tent pitch, not the footprint of the tent they can accommodate. Some of our tent pitches have a slope to them, although we have tried to identify the flattest areas to create pitches. There is no vehicular access to the tent camping area, but wheelbarrows are available to help transport your gear from the car to the pitch.

Small tent pitch - 3mx3m grass pitch, including one adult. 

Medium tent pitch - 5mx5m - 6mx6m grass pitch, including two adults (over 16 years) and 2 children. 

Large tent pitch - 8mx5-7m grass pitch, including two adults (over 16 years) and 2 children. 

Group tent pitch - for the 2024 season we are opening a group tent pitch - this pitch is set away from the other tent pitches and can accommodate 4 small tents or 2 larger tents, allowing groups of friends or family to stay together. 

Pitches 11 (small), 12 (medium) and 14 (large) are closest to the facilities building - please specify on booking if you require one of these pitches. 


Due to the size of our pitches and limited space for manoeuvring at the van facilities, we also have to limit motorhome length onsite to maximum 7m. Pitches 4-10 are particularly tight and we recommend maximum 6m vehicles for these spaces, with larger vehicles (up to 7m) better suited to pitches 1-3. Pitch 3 is closest to the facilities building, accessible toilet and shower and best suited to guests with mobility limitations - please specify on booking if you require this pitch.  We can accommodate small side awnings on most pitches, up to 3m wide but it is not permissible to sleep in awnings or tents on the van pitches. 

The pitches are laid out so that there is a hardstanding bay to the right hand side of the pitch and a grass area on the left - you may need to reverse in or drive in forwards in order to have your side door opening on to your pitch. 

Motorhome Pitch with EHU (Pitches 1-3): 8m long hardstanding bay suitable for vehicles up to 7m in length with an electric hook up connection - a cable of at least 12m is required. Closest to the facilities building and accessible toilet. Rate includes two adults (over 16 years) and 2 children.

Campervan Pitch with EHU (Pitches 4-6): Hardstanding bay at front of the site suitable for vehicles up to 6m in length with small area of grass to the side and electric hook-up connection - a cable of at least 15m is required. Rate includes two adults (over 16 years) and 2 children.

Campervan Pitch without EHU (Pitches 7-10): Hardstanding bay suitable for vehicles up to 6m in length with small area of grass to side of hardstanding. Rate includes two adults (over 16 years) and 2 children.

Additional adults and children can be added to a pitch, up to a total of 6 people per pitch.


Rooftents are welcome, but you'll need to book a campervan pitch as you can't drive to the tent pitches. Please add a note to your booking so we can allocate you the most suitable pitch.

On the campsite

Our facilities block houses 5 showers, 5 toilets and 2 urinals, including accessible facilities. Three of our showers have hairdryers and our accessible shower has an adapted shower with seat, a bath and a baby changer. Washing up liquid, sponges and tea towels are provided in the covered washing up area which also has a washing line for hanging small items. Outdoor drying bars are provided for larger items such as wetsuits and beach towels. Picnic benches are located around the site, including two in the covered area at the rear of the building.

Campervans and motorhomes can make use of the water top up and the chemical waste disposal point. We have six van pitches with electric hook-up and four without.

PLEASE NOTE: We are unlikely to be unable to offer a grey water waste emptying facility for the 2024 season. We apologise for this inconvenience and trying to rectify the situation as soon as we can.

Campers have 24hr access to a kettle, toaster, microwave, fridge with small freezer compartment for ice packs and plug points for charging phones and battery packs.

In reception you can find visitor information and borrow forgotten camping equipment, toiletries, fire pits to take to the beach and boardgames and a book swap.

A communal fire pit is located to the rear of the site and logs (and campfire snack packs!) are available to purchase from reception.

An electric vehicle charging point is available onsite on a pay as you go basis.

We have separate bins for general waste, recycling, glass and ash (from BBQs and fires).
