We have a limited number of electric hookup pitches which are best for caravans and motorhomes rather than the tents.

Whole Package with electric hookup – £280
Whole Package with standard pitch – £250


Dogs will need to be on a lead when on the campsite.

Due to the number of dogs and people we request that you have third party insurance for your pets.

Special Note Regarding Reactive Dogs: Please note that there will be a lot of dogs and people at this retreat. If your dog would misbehave or bark a lot in this situation then it may not be ideal for them. We are looking to do a different kind of retreat in the future to assist with poorly behaved dogs.
