Covid-19 matters

The camping field is very spacious.  There is masses of room to walk around or play safely away from others. Pitches are at least 10m across - most quite a bit bigger - so social distancing is easy to do.


We ask you to maintain 2 metres distance please during your stay (even if the rules elsewhere have changed), so that everyone can feel safe, comfortable, and protected - you, our family and all our guests.

Children under 15 must at all times be accompanied to any of the campsite facilities please.

Alcohol gel hand sanitisers are provided on arrival, before entering the facilities, and at other strategic points. Please also bring your own for when you are out and about.

Reception arrangements are outdoor.


Each toilet/washroom:-

  • is in a separate individual room with solid walls, accessed directly from the outdoors

  • comprises a toilet and a wash basin

  • has a separate ventilation system

  • automatic lighting (no switches to touch)

  • flush free eco-friendly toilet (no flusher to touch)

  • hygienic paper towel and toilet roll dispensers

  • liquid hand soap

  • deep cleaned daily

  • frequently cleaned and sanitised in line with government guidelines

  • spray provided for cleaning if you wish

  • If you have to wait you will be able to queue safely outdoors


  • One person at a time please gents. We suggest you knock before entering.

  • Facilities as above


Please do NOT bring your own toilet. We have nowhere for you to empty it. Neither portable showers nor toilets are permitted. Thank you.


Each shower:-

  • is in an individual bathroom (two are family size) with solid walls

  • is separately ventilated

  • comprises a shower and a hand basin

  • is deep cleaned daily

  • frequently cleaned and sanitised in line with government guidelines

  • has cleaning spray for your use

  • a one way system is in operation from the entrance to the shower rooms


The main washing up area will be available to one family or group at a time so you'll need to work around this at busy times or be prepared to wait. A second washing up area is available in the caravan. Children won't be allowed to wash up on their own (sorry mums and dads!). The washing up areas are deep cleaned daily and frequently cleaned with disinfectant between times.

We normally have a comprehensive display of visitor information. We can't do that just now so we're continuing to add more information and useful links to our website Things to Do page, including links to local walks. Our little booklet 'Nine Great Walks from Low Greenside' (£3) is still on sale.

A hairdryer socket won't be available but you'll still be able to charge phones etc.

Regular campers will notice that the usual fridges and ice block freezer are not in use, for obvious reasons. Bags of ice are available from the Co-op in Kirkby Stephen and these last very well. We'll keep a small supply of iceblocks at the campsite but we'll no doubt find it difficult to keep up with demand in warm weather.

Looking after yourself and others

Please do not come if you have any Covid 19 symptoms.  Let us know as soon as possible if you need to cancel.

If you should get Covid 19 symptoms while here or within 14 days of leaving the campsite please let us know at once.

If NHS Test and Trace ask us for the contact details of people who have made a booking with us, we will pass these on to them. You have the right to opt out of this if you wish but we encourage you to stay opted in, for your own safety and for the safety of other people for whom you have booked.


Wash your hands frequently with soap for 20 seconds and keep to 2m distancing.

Please bring a hand sanitiser for use on the campsite and while you are out and about.

Bring your own first aid kit including paracetamol and a thermometer.

You will need cash please for logs (£6) and walking leaflets (£3).


Everything else is normal! Just as relaxing as ever.

If you see anything we could maybe do better, please tell us. Best of all, tell us while you are here so that we can fully understand your suggestion. Otherwise, please ring or email after you have left.

We ask you kindly to avoid putting your suggestions into an online review. Without doubt the way we are working to ensure everyone's comfort and safety will be tweaked more than once and it would be unhelpful to have potentially outdated information posted online. Many thanks for your consideration.

We look forward to seeing everyone having a happy time camping at last! Hooray!!


Camping as it used to be!
