In making arragements for Covid, our aim is always to make sure everything is in place for you to feel safe, happy, and relaxed during your stay. To see if the proof is in the pudding, do check out our 2020 customer reviews on on Facebook, Google, & UKcampsites.co.uk
The camping field is very spacious. There is masses of room to walk around and to play safely away from others. The centre of the field is a big area of meadow with no tents. Pitches are at least 10m across - most quite a bit bigger - so social distancing is easy and natural.
We ask you to maintain 2 metres social distance please during your stay 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 the campsite facilities.
Alcohol gel hand sanitisers are provided on arrival, on the car park, before entering the facilities, and at the recycling bins. Please also bring your own for when you are out and about.
Reception arrangements are outdoor, under cover in front of our house.
There is a QR code for you to scan on arrival, which we encourage you to do.
To keep cash transactions to a minimum we ask you to pay for your stay online before you arrive. We don't have a card machine.

The main washing up area is available to one 'bubble' 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 where you will need to wear a mask please. Children won't be allowed to wash up unaccompanied (sorry mums and dads!). Washing up areas are deep cleaned daily and frequently sanitised during the day.
We normally have a comprehensive display of visitor information. We can't do that just now so we've added more detailed local information, walks, and other useful links to our Things to Do web page. Our little booklet 'Nine Great Walks from Low Greenside' (£3) is still on sale at the campsite.
Hairdryers can't be used while Covid is with us but you'll still be able to to charge phones etc. free of charge..
Instead of our usual fridges and ice block freezer, we're filling plastic milk bottles with water and freezing them for you. In a cool box these actually work better than ice blocks. On return we wash and quarantine them before re-freezing. There is no charge.
We also have a limited number of ice blocks to lend out for a small deposit.
We normally manage to keep up with demand but if we should run out in really hot weather (bring it on!), big bags of ice are available from the Co-op in Kirkby Stephen and last very well.
Restrictions on group size:-
As per government guidelines at the time.
Looking after yourself and others
Please do not come if you have any Covid-19 symptoms or have been in contact with someone who has symptoms in the previous 14 days. 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 please let us know at once.
Wash your hands frequently with soap for 20 seconds and keep to 2m distancing.
Bring a hand sanitiser for while you are out and about.
Bring a mask - you will need this on your way to the shower and when washing up.
Bring your own first aid kit including paracetamol and a thermometer.
You may need cash for logs (£7), grills (£5 deposit) and walking leaflets (£3).
Everything else is normal! Just as relaxing as ever.
Feedback on our Covid precautions has been excellent but if you see anything that concerns you please tell us, preferably straight away and before you leave so that we can fully understand your concern.
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 continue to be tweaked and it would be unhelpful to have potentially outdated information posted online. Many thanks for your consideration.
We look forward to seeing you having a relaxed and happy time!
