Camping Information

General Pitch Information

Our Campsite is situated in a forest and the pitches are constructed around the natural lay of the woodlands.

Consequently, the ground which you will pitch up on is that of a typical forest floor. This means that your pitch could be slightly gravelly; be a silted surface; have tree roots or pine cones scattered around; or be slightly uneven.

Being within a forest, grass is usually unable to grow so for those booking tent pitches, we do recommend that you bring toughened metal tent pegs and an extra ground sheet for added protection and comfort.

Premium Pitches

These are electric pitches which provide you with slightly more privacy than normal electric pitches and are ideal for caravans, campervans, motor homes and trailer tents. Some are suitable for tents; please ask at time of booking.

Pitches are only suitable for tents up to an 8 berth.

Electric Pitches

Suitable for caravans, campervans, motor homes, and trailer tents. Some are suitable for tents; please ask at time of booking.

Pitches are only suitable for tents up to an 8 berth.

Non-Electric Pitches

These pitches are for tents only .

Campsite Facilities

The washing facilites are found in the middle of the Campsite and comprise of toilets, free showers, hot and cold water, electric shaving points and hair driers (coin operated). There is a laundrette situated next to the facilities, with a washing machine, tumble drier, and an iron. Washer and Drier tokens can be purchased from either the Campsite Warden or Reception, and the iron is coin operated.

As well as this, at the laundrette, there is a freezer, for campers to store ice blocks; a public telephone; and 13amp plug sockets, which are coin operated, to charge electronic devices or to use hair straighteners.

Washing Up Area

This is a covered, lit area found behind the laundry room, with a hot and cold water supply for washing of utensils etc.

Electric

Each hook up point is clearly numbered on each pitch and delivers a maximum of 1.5KW (6 amps) per pitch. Please ensure that you do not exceed this, as it will cause the circuit to trip. Generators are not permitted.

Grey Water Waste Point

A drive-over facility for Motorhomes’ grey water waste only.

Wi-Fi

Not all pitches can receive a signal, due to the Campsite being located in a forest. On arrival at your pitch, please check whether you can receive a Wi-Fi login signal. Wifi codes are available from the Campsite Warden or at the Main Reception Building for £3 for 24 hours. One code may be used with only one device.

TV Signal

Due to our location, the TV signal is very poor.

Gas (Calor)

Butane and propane gas bottles, as well as some gas regulators, are available from Reception. We do not stock camping gas. Reading Caravans Camping Shop is nearby, and carries a much larger selection of camping equipment and supplies should you need them.

Refuse

Refuse sites are found by pitch 25 and opposite the Campsite Warden's caravan. Please remember to recycle where possible. There are separate bins available for general rubbish, mixed recycling and glass. There are also areas for disposing of used barbeque coals at these points.

Elsan Points

These are situated near the refuse points. Please ensure you ONLY put toilet waste down them as nappies, wipes and sanitary towels will block this facility. For these items, please use the sanitary and nappy bins provided in the main toilet block.

Please note the following useful tips:
