First Best CS Nomination

After our first few months from opening the caravan site we are happy with the responses we are getting from visitors about the site and its facilities.

A few days ago we were very happy to received a letter from the Camping and Caravanning Club with a rosette to acknowledge our first nomination for Best CS.

Next season when we open again in March and the caravan site will be in the Big Book of Sites is when we are really hoping to see if we can get more nominations for Best CS.

Thanks for visiting the website and if you would like to book a pitch for next season please use the contact page.



Using A Fully Serviced Pitch

When we were designing the caravan site we felt our visitors would appreciate the advantages of a fully serviced pitch/super pitch. Each one of the caravan pitches has a 16amp power supply with individual breaker, two taps and waste water point (with waste hopper/hose). The reason there is two taps is so you can have a permanent water supply directly to your van/Aquaroll and the second tap can be used to fill up water containers.

Water To Your Caravan/Motorhome

When setting up the site we installed a dedicated water main and large diameter pipe work to make sure that the system could cope with 5 caravans/motorhomes using the mains supply at the same time.

To fully take advantage of the pitch facilities you will require either mains adapter for your Aquaroll or a mains connection pipe that goes directly to your van.

Below are some videos from Care-avan on their adapters and hoses:

Waste Water From Your Caravan/Motorhome

To deal with the wastewater there is a surface water drain running in front of all five of the caravan pitches. We provide a collector and waste pipe to carry the wastewater away from the caravan/motorhome.

Thanks for reading.


Camping At Horton Common

As the site is located in the Green Belt and it’s also a designated Special Landscape Area we are unable to offer a building for toilet/shower facilities due to planning restrictions.

Therefore I’ve provided some information below for people who wish to come and camp with us. Please note we do not charge extra for small toilet/shower tents.

We do provide the option of a 16A electrical connection for tents, which could be used to power small pumps for showers etc.

Camping Toilets

This a particularly small and compact toilet available from World of Camping:

Here is a more in depth video from Jacksons Leisure about portable toilets:

Toilet Tent

Here is another video from World of Camping for their toilet tent. Similar tents can also be used for showers.

Camping Showers

Here are two videos that should give you some ideas of how to setup a camping shower:


3G/Mobile Broadband

Unfortunately as the landline broadband is very slow we are unable to offer WiFi.

Therefore for 3G mobile Internet access you will either have to use a broadband dongle or use the tethering feature (wireless access point) if you have a smart phone.

We use the Three network for mobile broadband and there are actually several masts in the valley directly in front of the caravan site that provide a good signal and fast data speeds.

Using our post code (ST13 8QS) please use the links below to check the coverage maps for each of the networks.
