We are happy for you to bring well behaved pets but please do not leave them on their own or allow them to bark all the time and it is very important that you keep them on a lead at all times as we are a working farm with sheep and lambs.
Please note that due to location we operate as an Eco off grid campsite so no electric pitches. Although we do not have wifi on site we are in a good area for mobile phone and tv reception so picking up a signal shouldn't be a problem. Worried about going off grid?

We appreciate your help too by reducing the amount of waste you produce and bring to our properties to help us aspire to becoming zero waste.
