PLEASE BOOK ONLINE

N.B. We are unable to accept Caravans.
Before you book PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING;
Although it is great camping in a group with friends and family it is unfortunate that we have had a few groups that do not appreciate the sentiment and ethos of The Hideaway consequently spoiling the enjoyment for others, and as a result we now have to implement a maximum of three in a group policy. We are disappointed that we have had to take this approach, although campers’ enjoyment and comfort is at the heart of what we do here at The Hideaway and we aim to protect this so hope you understand. 🙂
GROUP BOOKINGS of more than three tents/units will need to look elsewhere i’m afraid. If you reserve or we discover after arrival more than three pitches have been booked by a group then we will be left with no alternative but to ask you to leave with no refund offered.
***We have a very strict ‘ELEVEN7’ rule; please keep noise to an absolute minimum between 11pm and 7am. If you want to stay up late partying or have children (or adults!) that like running around making a racket before first light…this is not the site for you!***
Please keep MUSIC personal, i.e. use headphones; people come here to enjoy the peace, tranquility and the sounds of nature – not someone else’s taste in music!
We trust you understand and if all of the above doesn’t put you off then this might just be the campsite for you…! 🙂
Although all of our pitches are large please note that it is ONE UNIT/TENT PER PITCH and a minimum of 6 meters between tents/units. This is a legal requirement due to us having proper campfires.
PLEASE read our terms below, especially our cancellation and refunds policy.
Extra Cars & Day Visitors
N.B. PLEASE TRY TO KEEP IT TO ONE CAR PER PITCH! The Hideaway is a very rural site and for your enjoyment we want to keep it that way so please take note; we do not have many “extra car” parking spaces so during busy periods you may have to park additional cars (cars in addition to the ONE included with the pitch price) OFF-SITE in the village. Each pitch has its own designated numbered parking space, there is only one space per pitch.

vi) If adverse circumstances, for example flooding, result in the Proprietor cancelling your booking at any time, a full refund of your deposit or unused camping fees will be made.

vii) Making amendments (changes) to advance bookings. You can make any amendments to your booking either through the internet or the directly with the site, as long as more than 14 days’ notice before the date your booking is due to start is given.

Whether it can meet your needs depends on site-specific considerations, such as pitch availability. This applies only to making amendments to an existing booking. You cannot completely change the dates you booked, as this would constitute a ’cancellation’ with less than 14 days’ notice, and any new dates as a completely separate booking.
