Our pitch sizes are a generous 10m x 8m. We believe this offers enough space for an average size tent and a car or for two one man tents and one pitch can be booked for two tents. If more space is needed then two pitches will need to be booked. Please state this in the dialogue box when booking.
Camping wouldn’t be camping without a good old campfire where you can toast your marshmallows and share tall tales! A firepit is included with each pitch and wood and kindling is for sale on site not only for your convenience but also for health and safety!
Caravans are very welcome at Brick Kiln but please note that we are unable to offer any electrical hook up.
Our converted stable block offers a small kitchen area where you can wash up and have access to a fridge and freezer, off the kitchen is the creative space where you can gather to play traditional board games, paint, eat, cook on the camp stove or browse our honesty shop.
The block also houses the campsite showers and toilets, with a family shower room.
There is no electrical hook up here, just some plugs to charge your phones (if you need them) and boil a kettle!
Dogs are welcome but you must clean up after your dog and they must be on leads at all times.
Children are welcome to use our play area, which has been enjoyed by the children of Brick Kiln. Parents must be responsible for their children and must supervise them at all times. We cannot take any responsibility. Would all parents/carers ensure that their children understand that the play area is shut and quiet time is from 9.15pm to 8am.
