Craft Markets

Craft Markets are held on the 1st Saturday of every month and more frequently during the holidays.

The four December Holiday craft markets are particularly busy and dates for these are always the same; 16th, 23rd and 28th December and the 2nd of January. Crowds and trading are focused in the area around the campsite entrance to reception, the tea garden and play area. (Not in amongst the campsites) Traders gain access to set up stalls early then leave again to park off site).

So enjoy a morning beneath the trees. The fully licensed tea garden, gift shop and bar are always open for delicious meals, home bakes, preserves, gifts, antiques and books. Wi-Fi is also available and our wood-fired pizzas and delicious food are not to be missed. It’s a family affair.
