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 and contactless.


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

  • disinfectant spray 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 (some 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 disinfectant spray for your use

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


If we think it necessary, we may decide to limit access to the showers at busy times and we may ask guests who are staying for only 1 or 2 nights not to take a shower. Private hand basins will still be available. You might like to bring a face cloth (kinder to nature than wipes) for a strip down wash, just in case.


We may close the shower block at times to allow access to a second washing up area.

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. Children won't be allowed to wash up on their own (sorry mums and dads!). The washing up area is 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 for sale 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.


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), walking leaflets (£3), and ice when it's available.

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!
