INFORMATION

Information about our camping pitches

Unless designated as a ‘hardstanding’ pitch, all our pitches have a grass surface which is subject to wear and tear during the open season.

Our camping fields are level with some undulations and slight inclines. Parking on pitch is for one car. Up to two cars may be parked subject to payment of a fee for the extra car

Pitch sizes vary – they range from 8m x 10m to 10m x 10m. Some un-serviced pitches have a tapered width from front to back and are suitable for smaller accommodation units.

Pitch availability varies according to the need to rest or restore pitches after use. The weather can affect grass quality.

If you book a particular pitch, it will be noted on your booking confirmation. If you do not book a particular pitch, you will be allocated the pitch type you book, and your pitch number will be allocated when you check-in.

Grass quality can adversely be affected by tents and caravans. Patches of bare soil or dead grass can be unsightly but may not render a pitch unusable.

After check-in, and on your request, if you wish to change pitch we will, subject to availability, offer you an alternative pitch.

On our offer, if you opt to upgrade or downgrade the type of pitch, we will inform you of the difference in price and provide a new booking confirmation. To confirm the new booking the Balance Due shown must be settled either way (i.e., refund from us or extra payment from you).

If the pitch type occupied is upgraded in a new booking confirmation, we will charge you the difference between the published prices of the pitch type booked and the upgraded pitch.

If the type of pitch is downgraded in a new booking confirmation, we will refund the difference between the published prices of the pitch type booked and the downgraded pitch.

Our pitch types, in ascending order of price, are:

  • Pitch – an un-serviced grass pitch,
  • Riverside – an un-serviced grass pitch beside the River Tavy (pitches 18 – 33),
  • Riverside + EHU – a serviced grass pitch beside the River Tavy (pitches 1 – 16)
  • EHU (Electric Hook-Up) – a 16-Amp EHU serviced grass pitch,
  • Hardstanding (EHU) – hardstanding pitch with 16-Amp EHU (Pitches 70 - 78).
  • Hardstanding (fully serviced) – hardstanding pitch with services point (16-Amp EHU, on pitch water supply, ‘grey’ water drain and TV aerial). (Pitches 44 – 49).

Pitching

No pitching of tents or caravans before 1.00 p.m. or after 9.00 p.m.

All pitches are marked with a centre pitch number and/or side boundary markers. You may only pitch between and in line with the markers on the allocated pitch.

If you do not pitch on or within the allocated pitch you will be requested to move to within the boundary of the allocated pitch. If you decline to move, you will be given a refund of unused pitch fees and must leave the park.

The maximum size tent accepted on a single pitch is 8m long x 5.1m wide. Not all pitches will accept a tent this size.

‘Late stays’

To extend your stay on the day of departure you must inform Park Reception no later than 12.00 noon on the day before the booked departure date.

If the pitch is available, we may at our discretion confirm a late stay to 6.00p.m. on the departure date.

A £6.00 charge inc. VAT will be made for a confirmed late stay.
