We have some flat ground suitable for camping and a hard standing area for caravans/camper vans. You are welcome to stay overnight but we would need prior notice of your intentions. There is an electronic gate access as well as a combination padlocked gate to get through. If is a very pleasant and 'quiet' place to stay - shame about the Canadian geese at dawn!
Sorry, but there is a 'no dogs' rule on our site.
Contact the Fleet Captain for the event you are attending, but if that fails contact Stewart (dutyman@hollowellsc.org.uk).
